Absolute power is characterised by the power of life or death. And this is precisely the power of God - God had the power of life and death over each one of us.
And God created us in His own image so naturally we imitated God's absolute power in institutional slavery. For the slave owner had the absolute power of life and death over their slaves.
And slavery has been the history of humanity right up until 1833 when institutional slavery was abolished for the first time in history by the House of Commons.
So why are we surprised today to find we still hanker for absolute power by worshipping a God of absolute power.
And whatever we worship, we become.
And indeed absolute power is best expressed in totalitarian ideologies - two of whom we have defeated, while the third is on the rise.
