Why is it always assumed that if there is a God (for the sake of argument, in this context, God=Creator) that He/She/It is omnipotent, omniscient, PERFECT in everyway, capable of no wrong, etc,etc, etc. Why isn't it ever considered that being responsible for our existence is merely GREATER or more POWERFUL than us but, NOT PERFECT? Isn't that an option? Also, I didn't include "They" because I don't really know about Polytheism & if the idea of omniscience & omnipotence applies (please inform & do share!)
**I'm refering conceptually to the idea of God, so answer as you wish, but know I'm seeking to understand everyones view but, not thier doctrines, sacred texts, or
prophets, etc. Please try to keep that in mind**

I can totally see where you're going with this. I've often wondered about the "perfect" idea of god (however we choose to interpret god).
I've decided that even if my creator is not perfect, my creator wants the best for me and will always love me. I base this on a very simple comparison. If I (as a mere human) am able to love my children so much and without condition, then surely my creator is capable of this as well. I have faults and I may not always be the best that I can be...but I am capable of unending love.
I like to think my creator is perfect (or at least more perfect than me) but even if my creator is not perfect, I'm ok with that too!
