God

I was just watching one of those old-testament movies I so enjoyed as a child and which probably helped cement my faith back then. And I was wondering, why is “God” so insecure that he needs to have people worship Him and only Him, so much so that He tries to “buy” people to do so by promising eternal happiness and so on (you know, that stuff he hasn’t been able to deliver on earth so far) and threaten them with eternal doom if they don’t obey? I mean, if he is God the Father, what kind of bad parenting skills are those?
