Questioning God Easier for More Devout

Occasional questioning of God is common among Americans. Now, research reveals that the people who are most comfortable with this fact may well be those who feel closest to the deity.

But people who describe their relationship with God as close and resilient are actually likely to accept complaining and questioning directed toward God.

All of us have disagreed with our parents - even hated them at times. But if they are good parents, this does not in the least affect their love for their children. God is our affectionate Spirit Father - his love is about as unconditional as it gets: Supportive Urantia Book quotes follow:

2:6.2 Religion implies that the superworld of spirit nature is cognizant of, and responsive to, the fundamental needs of the human world. Evolutionary religion may become ethical, but only revealed religion becomes truly and spiritually moral. The olden concept that God is a Deity dominated by kingly morality was upstepped by Jesus to that affectionately touching level of intimate family morality of the parent-child relationship, than which there is none more tender and beautiful in mortal experience.

3:4.7 Finite appreciation of infinite qualities far transcends the logically limited capacities of the creature because of the fact that mortal man is made in the image of God—there lives within him a fragment of infinity. Therefore man’s nearest and dearest approach to God is by and through love, for God is love. And all of such a unique relationship is an actual experience in cosmic sociology, the Creator-creature relationship—the Father-child affection.
