God or no God, we, the human race, all live on this planet we call Earth. If God exists, I do not believe him to be self-centred and conceited, but religion expects that he be worshiped; to be praised for his creations. Do you think he would prefer to see what he created protected and cared for? Or do you think he would prefer that we create religions that profit, create segregation, induce discrimination and break every one of the Ten Commandments, all in his name?

The human race is not flawed, just unique. God may be omniscient, but that is ‘all knowing’ at time of writing, not future events. As for logical paradox, is that not a paradox itself? But his preference; worship or taking care of his creation?
To answer your original question directly, the god portrayed in the Bible would seem to care about being worshiped and feared above all else. This is a rather immature goal for an all powerful, perfect entity who would have no such motivations.
I agree Mahmo, and I believe that the majority of people, religious or not, live and abide by the rules/limits.
