In short, to conceive of God in terms
of a list of particular predicates will
inevitably lead to hopeless contradiction
and confusion. (P. 145).
Rodeo clowns feel the same way about political play freaks with wealth obtaining power to make crime pay for weapons. When a natural state must be given up for the love of ethical life, Hegel wrote in preparation for his lecture that evil has as much feeling as good. A heart needs to have universal content to be true. Worship as a fetish ritual was called cultus (LPR 191). Each religion claims to be the true religion. Hegel rejects this kind of idolatry as stages in dialectical particularity. God has so many irons in knee fires that being ethical is self-absorption. I quote:
so ethical life is valid insofar as it is
based upon genuine knowledge of God. (p. 149).
