Oddly enough, you would love it, if he wanted you to. Which he seems to want, so, you would love it. Today, in a world where he has no god powers, you think that might be a bad thing. In that hypothetical world in which he does have god powers, you would love it unconditionally and irrevocably and never doubt or wonder about why you do.

Aren't god powers cool?

Me. You could trust me with those powers.

You would unintentionally make every claim bullshit - even the truthful ones - just by sheer power of will.

Then we'd have a world of bullshit where nothing is true. Not even the fact that everything would be bullshit. It'd create a paradox that would end up tearing a hole in the fabric of time; killing us all.

*Claps hands* Well done.

This person is in the position where they aren't held accountable to anyone.
No one can touch or phase this person (unless the person allows it).
No one can intimidate them physically or mentally.
There is nothing this person can't have, or experience.
There is no limit to the pain or pleasure this person can experience, or inflict.
There is nothing this person can conjure up or extinguish.

I'm confident there is a type of person - restrained, as well as imaginative, and empathetic to make the best use of the power.

He was anything but restrained, imaginative, or empathetic. He did the bidding of the US government, couldn't care less about who died or lived, and then got bored and left.

I know I would not trust myself with godly powers.

If I got them, all my collected malice against pretty much everything would be given a perfect gateway out...

Are you an idiot?

They must suffer for their trespasses, if you drown of electrocute them, they don't.

I'm thinking of slowing killing of everybody they ever loved, one by one, infect them with the most painful diseases ever to be seen, have them starve and thirst, but keep them just barely on the edge of their now miserable, hopeless existence wherein pain, horror and anguish are the only things they will ever feel again.

You are a god after all.
