The tough/hard attitudes of men in authority have historically been projected onto God.
This has produced the judgmental, violent God of the Old testament and other religious texts.
But this is not the true nature of God.
God is gentle, forgiving, compassionate, and loving.
God judges no one.
God punishes no one.
God is transcendent and sublime.
A mystery beyond dualism.
So when religious authorities tell you God is violent and judgmental don't believe them.
Go into your room and close the door.
Pray to God and He will hear.
