Then perhaps he should have set up a better system.

Your god is either an incompetent buffoon or as a vicious thug and perhaps both.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

Bullshit. If God is as Christianity defines him, he would be incapable of being hurt or offended or sad. He's perfect, and that precludes any and all negative emotions.

I don't know that it precludes "negative" emotions, particularly since god had all sorts of negative and petty emotions (anger, jealousy) ascribed to him.

But what it DOES violate about god is it makes him dependent on others. If others can disappoint god or make him sad, then he is not self-sufficient or independent and therefore not omnipotent. Also a disappointed god is a surprised god, which violates his supposed omniscience. Finally, a vengeful god is not a good god, which violates his omnibenevolence.

I thought a bit more after posting, and yes, "negative emotions" is a bit too restrictive. God should not have any emotions at all, for the reasons you give, even though he displays plenty of them in the Bible, especially the Old Testament. But Christian theology portrays him as being a "perfect" being, which would rule out emotions of any kind.

So religion is self-contradictory -- surprise, surprise!

Again - for the thousandth time - spewing bible passages as a support for religious ideals based on bible passages is circular reasoning and, as such, irrational and irrelevant.
