Assuming that there is a God and, Relying on popularly-held accounts of the all-powerful, Omnipotent Master, Could it be that God is deluded?

Firstly, Let's consider, That for some reason, God has always remained elusive and has, On few occasions (and at that, Only a couple of thousand years ago) recited through third parties, His wishes albeit in a very cryptical manner.

One instruction seems to be universally clear. That is, The one over-riding condition for any person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven is to simply believe that He exists.

The dilemma here is that only those who are naive, Gullible, Weak and vulnerable are going to believe that God exists. Those who are strong, Well-rounded, Intelligent and morally sound will not have a bar of such a concept purely on the basis of very flimsy, Hearsay anecdotes.

So, Is it that God is a bit off His rocker if the only residents He wants in Heaven are vacillating, Impressionable airheads? Perhaps, That is His sort of personality anyway and He would feel more comfortable having His own kind around Him then, So be it.

Or, Is it that God is not so deluded and dumb after all and, Despite His vague promises, He has an ulterior motive for those whose souls ascend to the Promised Land?

Worth thinking about, Isn't it?

It would be worth thinking about if you had your scriptures right.
The kingdom of heaven is god's sanctuary on earth according to the scriptures.

According to Jesus the kingdom of heaven was subjected to violence. But God promised to restore order.

Matthew 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, The kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, [d] and violent people have been raiding it. 13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John.

The Kingdom of Heaven had to be a physical kingdom if it could be subjected to violence. And Matthew 11:12 proves Jesus was speaking of a physical kingdom of Heaven on earth.

Daniel too speaks of a physical kingdom that God will set up which will be everlasting and indestructible. It will crush all those other kingdoms on earth and will endure forever.

Daniel 2:44 "In the time of those kings, The God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, Nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, But it will itself endure forever.

God's promise to Mary. Jesus will sit on the throne of David. David's kingdom was a physical kingdom.
Luk 1:31-33 KJV - 31 And, Behold, Thou shalt conceive in thy womb, And bring forth a son, And shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, And shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Very good.
But don't you think that Jesus could have been talking metaphorically.
That is, He was comparing the idyllic way the earth should be with what he was trying to make out; that the earth has become a mess?

Jesus stuck to the old concepts till he was put on trial. Under duress he changed his story. Now you have the true motive behind his parallel universe.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world; if it were, My servants would fight to prevent My arrest by the Jews. But now, My kingdom is not of this realm. "
