From the earliest times of the human experience, religion was steadfast in presenting God to mankind in the form of as an exclamation point; when Christ entered the world, he bent the presentation of God into a question mark.

Jesus loved questions. He didn't try to enforce upon us a doctrinal statement. He didn't come to indoctrinate us. He came to liberate us. He came to encourage us to ask what we think about God. He presented parables to get us to stop and think, to question our own perception of God, to draw us into questioning what our own beliefs about God's nature and plans are.

Jesus showed us that not only is it okay to question who God is― what his nature is, how he operates, and how he thinks of us― it is actually the only way to truly step out of the prison of Belief-by-Indoctrination that religion binds us to.
