Interesting observations. None of which make god look like a nice character. He makes the rules, and they can be arbitrary or silly or cruel or impossible to understand. But god never has to follow them, so he does not care if the rules don't make any sense.
Bosses who makes themselves exempt from the employee handbook, who violate all the rules, who blame the people below them for anything that goes wrong, while taking all credit when things go right, who operate on a "because I said so" basis, who take the lion's share of the benefits may be perfectly within their rights.
But will they be respected? Will they be liked? Are they the models that the lower level employees should emulate? Will people help build the business out of a sense of shared vision and commitment to a goal, or will they just punch the clock, do the minimum and get their a$$es home? Will people be constantly looking for a better job, taking their expertise to someone who seems to appreciate it more?
On the other hand there are the bosses who make sure the rules apply to everyone, and who reward commitment and loyalty by sharing the benefits with their employees-- the kind of bosses who pitch in and help with the dirty work when needed. The workers like and respect the boss, who seems to like and respect them in return.
I have had both kinds of bosses. Guess which ones got my best efforts, who I stayed with the longest, who I never badmouthed and who I still remember fondly? Guess which boss I would go back to work for, or would recommend others go work for?
And guess which ones had the highest attrition rates, the most pilfering of supplies and badmouthing by employees, the most toxic work environment, the most harassment and discrimination problems?
Any human in a position of responsibility over others, say a president, king, boss, police officer, teacher or parent, who behaved in the slightest bit like any of the gods described by the major religions, that human would be considered the very worst of their kind.
That is what throws me about the "god as lawgiver" model. How are we supposed to follow rules when the person who made them up does not seem able to follow them-- or to care enough about them to set a good example by following them?
God just comes off like a puffed up, tinpot dictator. Or the worst kind of boss at a job. Or a schoolyard bully deciding who gets to play on the swings and who has to give up their lunch money. Because he can kick your a$$. It is not enough to say, well, he's god so he does not have to treat people nicely. Why is it okay for god to be a d!ck?
