I find this common sentiment with religious devotion to call into question the believer's moral bearing. If you need an external prompt from an ancient time to practice self-control, patience and empathy I doubt the religious person's moral maturity. Compassion, patience and empathy are available if one chooses personal responsibility, that one must submit to a dogma to realize this implies the person is caught in a narcissism demanding reprimand to activate their humanity. It is why religion has grown into something I see as odd and unnecessary.
