God's True Colors

"By their fruits shall ye know them." or something like that, from a pretty good work of literature. So, if God exists, he is to be judged by examining his work. When I do that, my conclusion is that the purpose of the earth and its inhabitants, is drama, to entertain God, who has a lot of time on his hands. He/she is not concerned with human suffering, injustice, cruelty, etc., except as it affects the dramatic quality of the work.

    Yup, by His fruits we can indeed know Him:

    "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened... 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! " (Romans 1)

    He cares a LOT about the suffering: that's why (a) He came in our flesh for 33 years to live the perfect life for us, (b) die the perfect vicarious death for us and (c) will one day pour out His wrath on all evil and evildoers. *We're* the ones who cause the suffering, NOT Him.

  3. You are attempting to know about his fruits by what has been written in the bible. That conflicts with thousands of years of recorded history by thousands of authors.
