Portraying Abba Father.


Some religions keep their followers in a perpetual state of fear due to their fear-mongering that portrays our heavenly Father as a revenging tyrant dangling people over the fires of hell like a spider on a web and unless they turn...they will burn "FOREVER" if the fires of hell.  Does this terrorist spirituality really portray the Fatherly attributes of our loving God?

Some religions are on the other end of the spiritual relationship spectrum where God is portrayed as the adults Santa Clause in the sky that attends to their every wish or demand and is a happy go lucky pushover pussy cat in that there is no aberrant behavior or sin that He will not condone. Does that "you can sin and live any way you want to, everything is all right" attitude portray the characteristic of a Holy God?

Of the two I accept neither NEITHER view of ABBA FATHER.   

I desire a relationship with the ABBA FATHER of Jesus who is infinitely loving, understanding, forgiving and compassionate regarding my relationship with Him in spite of my failures and sin. Who at the same time is awesome and incomprehensible in His acceptance and love of people, which is the God that Jesus, as the express image of God, came to reveal and revealed.
