Especially since he's God and knows everything - knew we'd sin and made us that way all the same... No wonder He got mad at us!

Reminds me of the time He justly ejected Adam and Eve from Eden. I mean, He TOLD them not to! Just because he hadn't given them the ability to know right from wrong and they only gained that capacity once they'd partaken of the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil doesn't mean He wasn't rightfully pissed. I mean, what parent wouldn't boot their newborn baby out for going doing what they explicitly told it not to do? Only fair.

Yep, my God is a good and just God, fulsome with rationale and fairness, with wisdom and patience, a nurturing and tolerant old bugger for whom the world spins only so He can make sure everyone is praying as per His wish.
Let's avoid looking at any particular religion, I intend to discuss this rationally and that isn't possible if we go into specifics.
My words are edible
