Origin of God? (The nature of a \'Creator\')

DAVID: War and fear are human creations or haven't you noticed? Yes, He granted us free will, but it is not His fault that we screw it up; it is ours. Limiting our concept of God to what He created is mature per Armstrong.

dhw:I agree that limiting our concept of God to what he created is the best way to imagine what he is like, and I am surprised that you consider all the natural disasters, destructions, diseases, conflicts and fears of life's history to be the fault of humans even before we were around. If God exists, I can find credible reasons why he would create the great mixture of “good” and “bad”, but they would not alter the fact that if we try to gauge his nature from what he created, it is difficult to suppose that as first cause he only created the “good” and had no knowledge of the “bad”.

I'm sure God recognized the good and the bad. I was only commenting on humans badness, not under his control. The Earthquake in Ecuador killed many. But just like California, why build and live over fault lines when humans have the ability to identify them? Folks in California have chosen to live with danger. It is their choice. Besides why do you want to have God provide a danger free life? That is a religion's wish. We do not know if He loves us.
