Were Progressive Christianity ever to become the State Religion it would be essential that we challenge any attempts to return to the carrot and stick religion of rewards and punishments with its heaven and hell.
These things are Machiavellian mass control techniques which are more in the interests of the State than God.
God does not punish us
The State may punish us.
But God does not.
There is no devil.
There is no hell.
These things have developed from attempts to explain our experience.
They are based on outmoded dualistic thinking.
God is One.
And His nature is Love.
