1) If you compare the Old Testament God, he is merciless in punishment. He destroys entire cities of sinners. There is no repentance. This is in line with the fury of the gods of the Roman, Greek, Hindu etc. pantheons. Reversing this creates the most basic type of heresy: do whatever you want until just before you die and “realise your mistake.” The Hindu/Indo-European caste system says that those who transcend into the Creator and our Ancestors are those who do our DUTY throughout our lives. This is the spirit behind the movie Gladiator and Marcus Aurelius, for example.
