Since good is what he commands, it is possible that he commands that he be hated, on the basis of which those who hated him most will be saved. Or maybe not, because again God owes nothing to his creatures. The result of this is that the faithful do not know what must ‘really’ be done as a matter of ‘good’ found ‘out there’. All that must be done is to obey the commandments of God as they are revealed, without any hope of salvation.
