is god good-natured?

there is no proof that god is good-natured. Hence love for god does not necessarily bring forth a good society. Hence Jesus failed. Respecting your neighbour,s rights, freedoms and health is more important than loving him. Here too the jesusian message failed.

You cannot manage human society on the basis of sentimentality.
