Of course, the flip side of everything I have been saying is this.
My premise that the god is NOT arrogant rests on the fact that he has SO much more power than us, SO much more wisdom, that he and us are just so utterly far apart that there is simply no comparison. Like Sebastian Vettel and a ten-year-old heading for a car, Seb would simply assume he would be driving. No arrogance, just an unthinking acceptance of how things are. He would be bewildered if the 10YO jumped in the drivers seat - I fully expect his brain would vapour-lock at the sheer nonsense of the situation.
But the "non-arrogance" only works if the god is a being of simple power. The moment you introduce any ability other than sheer brute force into the equation, when you introduce intelligence or wisdom or love, and the thought of punishment for any transgression becomes immediately as ridiculous as the thought of the "transgression" in the first place.
Punish a creature so far below me in comprehension? Inconceivable!
A god who is not just power, but that is also love and wisdom, would not be arrogant to know he was so far above us. But - and this is vital - such a god would ALSO be fully aware of the dramatic difference between him and us and the thought of punishment would be one that simply wouldn't occur.
If this being was Sebastian Vettel, with a level of wisdom comparable to his level of driving skill, and you said to him "punish that child for getting behind the wheel", he would look at you with exactly the same degree of confusion and vapour-lock. Punish the ant? Take vengeance on the gnat? What ridiculous planet are you living on?
A god - a true god - would not, could not be arrogant. But by exactly the same token, a true god would recoil in disbelief from the thought of any punishment, or hell, or sanction - would not comprehend any reaction other than perhaps an amused tolerance and indifference.
A true god is not arrogant. A true god creates no hell. The two statements come as a package deal - because a god that creates punishment and hell for the ants is clearly NOT a god who IS "all that and a bag of chips". He would indeed be just a petty tyrant, and arrogant would indeed be an apt description, because he would NOT have that clear superiority.
Just a much bigger stick.
