Is God a good father?

The ‘holy father’ has some interesting ideas and techniques when it comes to dealing with his creations. Let’s have a look at them:

‘I told my children to never touch the magic fruit bowl. But they were disrespectful and did it anyway. I threw them outside and cursed them and their future generations to live forever in suffering. One day I decided to forgive them, so I sent another child to be hideously murdered so that I could do so. Am I a bit sick?’

That’s pretty much how Adam, Eve and Jesus fit into the Bible. God made a tree and Satan with full foreknowledge of what was going to happen, and then punished his creations. And he has an odd way of forgiving people. Speaking of forgiving people…

‘God sacrificed himself to himself, to save us from himself’

 What part of that makes sense? Why does he have to kill his son, which is supposed to be part of himself, in order to forgive us for his own mistakes? And how is it a sacrifice if he rises from the dead three days later?

Not only that, but God did not speak to Jesus until Jesus was almost 30 years old.
[matthew 3:17 and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.] God had the means to make communication with Jesus at any time, yet he only did so when Jesus was at roughly the age of thirty. By human standards, this would be negligence, and God allowed his sinless son to die a tortured death for a crime he did not commit. Jesus was crucified and God did not do a single thing to intervene despite having the power to do so. This would also be negligence by human standards.

God’s a great father, isn’t he? Punishing his ‘children’ for his own mistakes, and then murdering another one of his children to forgive us.
