I think of this, too: Christians believe they are God's children. Yet, if anything BAD happens to them, they don't say "God did it to me". They give god credit for everything good and blame the devil for everything bad. that tells me that they don't think god is the kind of god to "punish" them because he wouldn't hurt his children. so why do they think god wants them to hurt their children?
I wholeheartedly agree, and thought the same way when I still was a Christian. I think that a lot of the more common teachings (hell, the trinity etc.) have no biblical basis, but that's a conversation for another day.

ETA: I love Gentle Christian Mothers!
