The idea is that God's relationship with us and maybe even God him/herself grows.

Hence the Old Testament is all fire and brimstone but then God wises up and builds a new covenant with us that includes his son, who is not allowed to touch the smite button on God's computer.

People like the new arrangement and the religion grows.

God wonders why he didn't think of this before the big flood and all that.


Evidently he has not matured much after all these thousands of years either... because he still pulls pranks on poor unsuspecting souls.

Buzz them?

Yeah, they buzz them. They find some random sick person with a disease that can be easily cured by the immune system, then cure the unsuspecting soul whom no one’s ever going to believe and then strut up and down in front of them wearing silly halos on their heads and making beep beep noises.
