Why God is Good

Dr. Weston: In the New Testament, God is always portrayed as being good and wickedness and evil is a human thing, a human problem. Actually, it's one of the things that's helped Christianity to spread very quickly. Can you... can you think, why?

Sophie: Because people like to feel shitty about themselves?

Dr. Weston: That's it. Exactly. We prefer to live in a world where, where God is good and man is bad, rather than a world where God is bad. So, an evil authority, an unfair government, neglectful parents, that's a pretty scary concept. Makes your whole life seem... kind of scary and meaningless. It is one of the reasons why children will blame themselves before their parents.
