I have an essay for Gods and Radicals entitled “Are The Gods On Our Side?” I use Guan Di as a case study to analyze the implications of both sides of a conflict (such as the class struggle) praying to the same god(s).
Are The Gods On Our Side?

"Man lives in the world. If he values loyalty, filial piety, honesty, and righteousness above all else, he will not fail in life.
However, if he doesn’t value loyalty, filial piety, honesty, and righteousness, although his body is alive, his heart is already dead. This is called stealing life.
Man’s heart knows the gods and the gods know man’s heart."
