Historically we have been assured that we were made in God's image, but over the same time we have persisted in trying to make God in our image. For example, you've heard the expression, "sinners in the hands of an angry God." That sure sounds like one of us and not God who is Love who's got his hands around us just for having unwanted programs. God is perfect and he made us all that way, it is our programs that are not perfect, but with any of the cleaning phrases, God/Love is there restoring his creation to zero, which is perfection.
Peace of I,
