With others, I am repelled by the “violent apocalypse” model of the Second Coming. It’s propagated by addictive personalities that enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with fear.
But what would you expect from a religion that’s all about men’s problems?

Let’s try this as a means of characterizing Christ’s victory:
“We” (the protective group) has victory. “I” (the creative self) has victory. They stop struggling long enough to surrender to love – which was never fighting with them in the first place.
