Alan Watts has a great lecture....

On what God is and it's goes something like this: God is everywhere. In, out, up, down. He is all-knowing and penetrating. So, if he knows everything what would he do for fun? He would play hide and seek. Each of us is God, hiding from himself. So he divided us all up as parts of himself down here. (Deuteronomy 32:8) This is why the bible says that Gods laws are written in the hearts of man. The law is to divide himself up and block himself off from himself and experience life without knowing who he is. That's the fun of it. So in this way he can enjoy his creations. He can discover new things like cave exploring, fly around in airplanes etc. If not for this division it would be pretty boring for Him.

So think - why is it that the expression says "that guy wouldn't hurt a fly". Or you cringe when you see someone else hurt. Or someone beating a kitten? Because you see that you are in fact hurting yourself. You literally feel it, but chock it up to evolution. If you see a little kid die of cancer you think - "how can God do that to that poor child"? Well, that IS God. Experiencing everything as individual units of consciousness. That's why you can't blame God for such things. Because we are all Him. The "image" of God.

That's why Jesus proclaimed to be the son of God. And also why he had to die for the statement. He's a glitch in the game, he would destroy the fun in it. So, we make heretics out of people who talk like that. It's by design.
