Religion = Appeasement, Gospel = Appeased

6a00d83451eaab69e200e54f4bc9bc8833-800wiThe foundation of religion is appeasement.  Angry gods or fickle gods or distant gods must be convinced to send the rain or stop the volcano from errupting or to come near.  Sacrifices must be presented and prayers said in order to get protection and comfort.  But what do you do with a God who appeases Himself?
