It's also a pretty bad idea to use his name to deceive others whether it is for monetary or personal gain or distorting his words
Yes, it would be terrible if someone invented a deity and then tried to control people through him. Imagine how bad that would be! People of means could placate the have-nots with promises of happiness and riches in an afterlife.
Your parents took care of you growing up, don't throw them away when you do.

Take care of them when the get sick and old, something we don't seem to want to do in society today.
Elder care takes up the largest portion of the federal budget.
Yeah, let's institute 7 day workweeks.
That's a warped view of the sabbath. God wants you to take a specific day off, not some day of your choosing. And depending on your interpretation, this can include turning on and off lights or locking your front door. Does that sound like work to you?
You seem to be unable to differentiate between capital punishment and murder.
Yes, we should kill people who cheat on their husbands - preferably with a stone. So long as we call that "capital punishment" and are careful not to call it "murder", our life is Holy and Good. War is fine, too. Unless we lose, then it is a "war crime" and we get to do that fun "capital punishment" thing again. Executions are so delightful, I'm so glad we Americans haven't given them up like every other so-called "civilized" country.
