God's morals? What are they?

God's morals? What are they?
This isn't specifically about Christianity.

If God exists, and assuming from his existence that entails there's some objective morality, how do you know what it is? How do you know what you believe is right and wrong is the same thing God thinks is right and wrong? What if you've been thinking God thinks murder is wrong, when in reality God thinks that's good?
My ignore list




"The lord doesn't work in mysterious ways, but in ways that are indistinguishable from his nonexistence."
-- George Yorgo Veenhuyzen quoted by John W. Loftus in The End of Christianity (p. 103).

God's morality would not be objective by definition.

"Objective" means independent on the opinions, values or beliefs of a being.

From dictionary.com
Quote:not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased: an objective opinion.

If God exists, God is a being.

Therefore, any opinions of that being are subjective, no matter how powerful, wise or knowledgeable that being might be.

"(Yahweh's) actions are good because (Yahweh) is the ultimate standard of goodness. That’s not begging the question"
...       -Statler Waldorf, Christian apologist

God's moral:

Me, me , me. Be grateful to me for forcing you to praise me for creating you so you may be tortured while I pretend to have no responsibility for bring them upon you.

Reminds me of the Euthyphro dilemma.
Yes, I am a Christian on these forums. I am not here to judge or condemn, rather, I am here to debate, learn, and incite discussion. Yes, I think that my avatar is hilarious.
