Very little is lost by finally admitting that God is a mental abstraction, but there are legions of educated people whose intellectual integrity simply will not allow them to hypocritically pretend a mental abstraction has an objective existence. If Christianity is to avoid the fate of all the previous obsolete mythologies, it must upgrade its archaic doctrine to remain consistent with humanity's modern understanding of the subjective/objective reality we all share.
