Since you're analyzing the subject from a child-like perspective, let me offer you a parallel that's easier to grasp:
Let's suppose you have two parents sharing the task of raising a teenager, who spends one week with each parent. One of them makes the kid wake up
early, go to school, do his chores and homework and practice sports, feeds him healthy food and keeps track of his friendships and whereabouts at all
times. The other parent doesn't care if he studies, lets him drink as much as he wants, allows him to do drugs and go to parties at will, in other
words, basically letting him do whatever he wants.
Now, who does the kid think is the best parent? Who's *actually* the best parent?
A couple of related considerations:
1. The old testament was written in a time when the only way people would do the right thing was through fear, hence the vengeful God described in
2. If the spirit lives forever, what's the harm in "killing" people existence? It would be just part of the experience.
And last but certainly not least: the devil is really the ego, which creates the illusions of duality and separation. Get rid of the ego, realize we
are One and you've killed the devil.
