This is what is so amusing about the more maniacal religious fringe like Nehor: That somehow, his brand of insanity is saner than some other religious nut's insanity.
That right there is the difference. If God were amiable to what I wanted and did what I wanted so that he was everything I wanted him to be then I would suspect that I was delusional.
I don't find this in my life. God is always telling me no, calling me to repent, disagreeing with me, telling me I don't understand as well as I think I do, and there are parts of his doctrine He has taught me that I dislike. There is doctrine I've been taught through direct revelation that is not (so far as I know) taught publicly in the Church that I have a strong dislike for.
Whatever God is, He is not the fulfillment of my wishes. If I could pick something to be true, I'd probably pick Norse mythology when I was romantic, atheist when I want to be my own ruler, and agnostic when I'm feeling sentimental. None of them require me to give up wealth, time, and myself to them totally. God does.
The prophets seem the same way to me. There are parts of the faith it seems that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young didn't like. Most everyone in the church is in the same boat. This is one of the evidences to me that my faith is not delusion. It pushes back far too much.
Nightlion doesn't seem like that to me. He lives in a bubble where God agrees with him and teaches him that he will personally be vindicated and gives signs to him that only he sees. It seems to give Nightlion everything he wants here and now.
