I'm amazed that people who claim to read and worship the words of the bible tend to be so ignorant about just what the bible says.  I wonder how many of them know that god is quoted many times in the bible admitting that he is infact evil.  I will list those passages below.
 
Isaiah 45:7  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Exodus 32:14  And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.
Joshua 23:15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things.
Judges 9:23  Then God sent an evil spirit
1 Samuel 16:14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
2 Samuel 12:11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house
1 Kings 9:9 ...therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
1 Kings 14:10 Therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam
2 Kings 6:33 ...Behold, this evil is of the LORD;
2 Kings 21:12 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
2 Kings 22:16 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place
Nehemiah 13:18 Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city?
Jeremiah 4:6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.
Jeremiah 6:19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people
Jeremiah 11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them
Jeremiah 25:29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil
Jeremiah 35:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them:
Jeremiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah
Jeremiah 45:5 ...behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD
Jeremiah 49:37 ...I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them
Micah 1:12 .... evil came down from the LORD
Micah 2:3 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil
 
So as you can see, god admits that it is he that does all evil, not some "fallen angel" who gets the blame.  The reason satan gets the blame is solely so that the christians can convince themselves that it's not god doing it.  But if you claim that god is not capable of committing evil acts then you are "giving false witness" and commiting  "blasphemy" against god and his character.
 
Now I ask you, why do you feel that this "god" is deserving of worship?  Even if you believe that he does exist, after all he has done and all he admits, why would you want to devote your life to him?  Of all the men who have lived not one of them can come close to the evil that this god is.  No one has caused as much death and destruction that this god claims to have done. 
 
It's funny, the relationship that people have with this god reminds me of battered wife syndrome.  He'll beat you into submission, threaten you with terrible punishments if you don't comply, convince you that you deserve that horrible treatment because your bad deep inside, then tell you he only does it because he loves you.  Actually it's not funny afterall.  It's pretty damn sad.
