What is the difference between God and a dictator?


If God does not have to answer to anyone, or rather, if he does not have to explain himself to anyone, how is he (lets just assume its a he) different from a dictator?

    but does he not say something along the lines of; my way is the only right way?, if so is he then not influencing the decisions we make, is that not indirect-control?

    you cant compare a human father-son relationship to one with an omnipotent being, not the same, and no I cant think of people a dictator should explain himself to since 1 definition of a dictator says that a dictator can make decisions without effect

    The definition of dictator does not suggest that only those who can move physical matter only are dictator, any being that assumes sole and absolute unquestionable rule/power is a dictator

    (assuming that God exists) he is a dictator, just because Im still alive doesnt mean he isnt, there are other ways that dictators punish those who dont follow them, did God not uses plagues, the great flood etc to punish those who didnt follow his wo

    I realise I have made quite a few grammer and spelling mistakes in this comment, I ask that you ignore them for the sake of the discussion
