Sin is something that changes God into a projection of our guilt, so that we don’t see God at all; all we see is some kind of judge. God (the whole meaning and purpose and point of our existence) has become a condemnation of us. God has been turned into Satan, the accuser of [humans], the paymaster, the one who weighs our deeds and condemns us....It is very odd that so much casual Christian thinking should be worship of Satan, that we should think of the punitive satanic God as the only God available to the sinner.  It is very odd that the view of God as seen from the church should ever be simply the view of God as seen from hell. For damnation must be just being fixed in this illusion, stuck forever with the God of the Law, stuck forever with the God provided by our sin. 

----Herbert Mc Cabe, OP, in “Faith Within Reason, “ (pg 155-156)
