Take the Christian framework. God is wise and powerful. Yet, if one looks at the religion at face value, a paradox immediately emerges: God is all-powerful, thereby all knowing, thereby any suffering caused is as God intends it. Yet causing unnecessary suffering is, by definition, petty. And there is no shortage of suffering either in the Bible or in history. A God that would force humanity to endure the 20th century, unless one assumes that it might have never existed, would be incredibly petty. And yet… God cannot be petty by definition. And so we are at a liar paradox – can God create a rock He can’t lift? (An entirely new spin on “do you even lift bro”…)
This may seem impossible to reconcile, but what if… what if God is not subject to time? What if God created and destroyed all in an instant? What if, in that instant, God gave humanity a riddle with intention that, to become truly religious, one must solve the riddle in realizing that no frameworked religion is the truth… to know God one must set aside all existing notions of God.
Thus to become truly religious, one must cast aside and transcend religion.
