Master of the House
The Christian religion, in its many and varied forms holds that God is perfectly good and that we are vile sinners for rebelling against the not to be questioned absolute righteousness of this Master of the Universe.

God, it is claimed, provided us free will within His total perfect moral reasoning and as we chose to question this initial and allegedly perfect truth we, despite our so called freedom of choice, chose against the preconceived 'ultimate truth' and
sinned. The fall, which supposedly occurred makes one wonder, why, given an absolutely 'perfect state', it ever happened.

Even if a stagnant , end time perfect state did exist (boring!) would God be justified in enforcing such on dissenters?
In the worst case Christian scenario we have the situation of mass suffering on this planet initiated by the fall including all the soulless animals,in order to pay homage to this mysterious entity, so as to reach a"perfection" that wasn't appreciated in the first place. Why a fall from such bliss?

As for suffering,here, not to mention a probable Hell, who would choose one minute of the worst of life's most joyous delights for an hour of its worst suffering, clearly the maths just don't add up.

Surely we must steer clear of Christianity, in its worst forms, and particularly relating to eschatology.................if there are any benefits to be found, these must surely lie in humanistic attempts to improve the human condition in terms of a humane and thoughtful understanding, not esoteric buffoonery.

RE: Master of the House
Your first two paragraphs are off, so the rest proceeds off the wrong foot IMO.

Perhaps you would like to expand.
"Off" doesn't really say much!
