In the past, the purpose of gods was to offer support to their human pets. To give them an advantage in a conflict with enemies. To bring abundant crops. To heal illnesses. To make life better. In return, they were given offerings and devotion. Now, the sole purpose of having a deity seems to be to kiss invisible ass so you can make it to some kind of an afterlife. To be good little lap doggies. What, in your opinion, is the purpose or advantage to having your deity? What do you get for your service to him/her and your devotion? And, if nothing, why do you stick around?

I don't serve any deity... I co-exist with them. Sometime they are my muse. I feel to honor them is to honor the lives and deaths of my ancestors.
