In this image God set up the Universal Corporation and presides over its every operation holding his vice presidents accountable for the proper functioning of their various departments; e.g., spiritual life, benevolence, evangelism, buildings, social action, worship, politics, music, theology, philosophy, etc. There is little agreement about just what the range of responsibility and authority of each of the vice presidents is, primarily because usually they are self appointed by each other in mutually advantageous reflexive arrangements. In this corporation image of the universe the various vice presidents tend toward attempting to fire their subordinates when their subordinates fail to fulfill their expectations; i.e., the vice presidents try to excommunicate their subordinates out of the Universal Corporation. Since the self appointed religious leaders hold such ultimately important positions in the Universal Corporation---they have an ultimate concern that they be successful in fulfilling God's expectations of them, lest they be fired from their self appointed vice presidency be cast out of the Universal Corporation into the outer darkness of non-being. The Universal Corporation's vice presidents do not understand that God is Love, and not a corporation president. They do not understand that Love does not use excommunication as a manipulative technique to conformity to his will, since the essence of love is to unconditionally keep channels of communication open to freely sought dialogue. Their corporate of the universe realizes a perverted perspective of the nature of the universe; to them the nature of reality does not in any essential way incorporate Love, any more than their humanly created secular corporations in any essential way incorporate an ultimate concern for keeping channels of communication unconditionally open.
