Suppose you knew that a brutal murder was about to occur. Suppose further that you were capable of either of two actions. You could prevent the murder at no risk to yourself or anyone else. (The victim would be removed from harm's way and the attacker would not try again.) Or you could sit back, allow the murder to take place and then have the murderer fry in the electric chair. What would you do?
I certainly hope it wasn't too difficult to come to a decision. In a circumstance like that, anyone who would fail to prevent the murder is no better than the murderer. Now, you and I do not know when murders are about to take place; nor do we have the power to prevent them at no risk. However, the 3 major world religions today claim that there is a god with this knowledge and ability. So, what does this god supposedly do? He sits idly by, only noting the murder so he can punish later. I think that it is safe to say that any "laws" made by such a god are self-serving so that he may obtain the cruel, sadistic pleasure of tormenting people. Were such a being to exist, I would oppose him. I would definitely not worship such a monstrosity.
