ife-insurance or life sentence?

"I could never work out whether we were to view religion as a life-insurance policy or a life sentence.
 I  can understand a wrathful God who’d just as soon dangle us all from a hook. And I can understand a tender, unprejudiced Jesus.
 But I could never quite feature the two of them living in the same house. You wind up walking on eggshells, never knowing which… is at home at the moment"
– Barbara Kingsolver The Poisonwood Bible , HT, Anabaptist in Perth
