Okay so just for s and g's I am re-reading the Bible cover to cover. The last time I did this was in HS so I wanted to see if my perspective was different now that I'm older and more mature. I am using the Parallel Bible, which is 4 different translations presented side by side (hence parallel). What I've discovered is that, if anything, I think the God of the Bible is nothing more than an arrogant prick. Read this passage and tell me how it reads to you.
1Then the Lord said to Moses, " Go back again and make your demand upon Pharaoh; but I have hardend him and his officials, so that i can do more miracles demonstrating my power. 2what stories you can tell your children and grandchildren about the increadible things I am doing in Egypt! tell them what fuuls I makde of the Dgyptians and how I proved to you that I am Jehovah."
Exodus 10:1-2 Living Bible Translation.
Now to me that sounds like some arrogant prick trying to show off. I mean you're GOD, we get it but going out of your way to make sure you get to perfom plagues/miracles is a little much don't you think?
edit: Okay so maybe "prick" is a little strong of a term but I stand by my feelings that God is being an arrogant show-off.Answer Question
