If you are putting the blame on God for people not being Christian then
God loses his sovereignty, becomes a tyrant, and is not the God who
constantly offers salvation to all. We then become puppets, part of God
himself, and our religion is not much better than panentheism. Again, as
with all perfect determinism, oppression is the result.

But you probably didn't mean it that way. Good!
