This is just so loop holed it doesent make sence. Half-baked arguements if you will,
First off, God made man as a perfect being, with all these attributes since we were not corrupted with God. However when we sinned we made it possible to go astray from God, by going astray with the attributes of what is good.
So it is possible to be good without God? That's all I wanted to clear up.
Second, he does not demand servitude, he offers to forgive us and for us to reunited in him. And so called "servitude" is for the Lord, why would obeying God able you to"part", as you said above, from the good attributes?
I meant that God parts with the good attributes and gives them to us, rather than them being an innate part of us. And for this he demands your loyalty.
That's not really very benevolent, now is it?
