If It Walks Like A Duck...
An omnipotent entity, such as God or anything, would be seduced instantly into omniscience, and it seems unfathomable to think otherwise.
What on earth would have the power to seduce God?

According to the Bible a need to show who has the bigger dick (Exodus), a need to show who is stronger (Genesis 32), getting Her panties in a wad (Biblical Floods), people turning to look back at their burning home (Lot's wife), people showing mercy after being told to kill everyone and all the cattle (1 Saul) ...

As you have pointed out before, the Bible can be used to say anything we want it to say.

Why would God need to prove himself to mere humans?

Remember we are talking of a Creator of all seen and unseen...a Being who is all powerful and all knowing. Not some bumbling character in a book that is learning how to be a god.

Or is that how you as a teacher choose to present the Deity?

I tend to agree but obviously them what wrote the book did not agree. They have God demanding that you not put any other gods before her and claiming she was a jealous god.

So you no longer talking about the God of the Bible?

Phat, I didn't write any of the Bible stories. I hope I could have done much better.

As a teacher I tried to help my students learn how to think critically and recognize myth, fantasy, folktales and fables; to learn how to ready the Bible, to understand that the Gods in the Bible were NOT GOD but rather the constructs of other humans.

We're talking about the god that YOU try to market - a bumbling fool who supposedly wants a "relationship" with us, yet he hides from us.
