What if you were God?

Some people argue that God is unjust and violent. He is a being that is egotistical and wrathful; he is fast to anger and ruthless with punishing. Looking at certain texts of the Bible, I can understand this viewpoint; however, I started to think, what would I be like if I was God? If I was the creator of the universe, what would I do with all that power. Would I be a God that people would want to follow or would I be a God that people are terrified of?

I look at the behavior of certain people, and am glad that they are not God. My sister is one that I would be terrified of. She once had this cat that peed everywhere. It would pee on pillows and the bed. I don't know if you realize, cat pee smells horrible. I am a janitor and few smells are worse then the strong sour smell of cat urine. When this cat peed, my sister would yell and throw things at it. She would get so mad, that her wrath would be terrible. If she was God, I would of been thrown out or smited a long time ago =)

If I was God, I would probally be no better. When I get extremely angry (not to often mind you), I tend to shut down and give up. I might even lash out. Would you want a God that just shut down and ignored you if you messed up? If I created the human race and the majority abandoned me (like they have and do many times even today), honestly,  I would of eventually abandoned them long ago and allow them to destroy each other. People can get on my nerves. You would not want me as a God would you?

The western society hates people that have absolute authority. We don't like tyrants and want to spread out the power among many. This idea is the very building block or America's constitution. History shows that when man gets to much power, they become currupt. We have Hitler, Stalin, Napolean, and the numerous kings, emperors, and czars to refrence to. Power can curropt even the most noble. Now imagine the power of God.

So my question is, What if you were God? What would you do and how would you rule?

To be honest, I think the God I serve is doing a better job then anyone I can possible imagine.
