Fathers? Why Jesus' Father isn't merciful: Matthew 18:23-35, but Your Father is merciful in Luke 6:36?

Reference: Matthew 18:23-35 (re Jesus' Father) Summary: servant = forgiven + unforgiven + tormented. Conclusion: Jesus' Father is both nice + nasty afterward. Reference: Luke 6:36 (re Your Father) Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Point: Seems like two different Fathers... show more Reference: Matthew 18:23-35 (re Jesus' Father)
Summary: servant = forgiven + unforgiven + tormented.
Conclusion: Jesus' Father is both nice + nasty afterward.

Reference: Luke 6:36 (re Your Father)
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

Point: Seems like two different Fathers (two different Gods).
- Your Father: Grace: is merciful, which multiplies peace
- Jesus' Father: Law: is nice + nasty, which multiplies fear

- Higher God: Grace: is harmless (Eg: Hebrews 7:26)
- God on high: Law: is also peril us (Eg: 2Timothy 3:1)

- Grace isn't threatening, because it is merciful
- The Law is threatening, because it's not merciful

- Grace: I will never leave you, nor ever forsake you: Friend.
- Law: I will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you: Enmity.

So then, since it's Father's Day, which Father do you prefer?
- Your Father: Grace: is "perfect" Love (God): Mt 5:48
- Jesus' Father: Law: isn't perfect Love (God): Heb 10:1

Hint: Jesus had to "go away" for comfort to come: John 16:7
