You seem to be asking this question more often. But apparently not to get an answer or to make an effort to find an answer in the bible; but to make
the same line of argumentation against the caring and loving God that is described in the bible, preferring to paint God as "completely indifferent
about the sins of man", i.e. uncaring (about the misery and suffering caused by sin) and thus unloving (and thus by implication, that the bible is
wrong about God in this respect, thus it's also an argument against the bible as being a reliable source for information about God, hence my 2nd
comment on the previous page). And painting him as someone who craves violent entertainment as much as your average human.
As we meditate on Jehovah’s activities, we need to avoid the tendency to judge God by human standards. This tendency is alluded to in Jehovah’s
words as recorded at Psalm 50:21: “You imagined that I would positively become like you.” It is as one Bible scholar stated over 175 years ago:
“Men are apt to judge of God by themselves, and to suppose him restricted by such laws as they deem proper for their own observance.”
We need to be careful not to shape our concept of Jehovah so as to conform it to our own standards and desires. For serious answers to the question
what God wants from us, see previous page or my commentary in the other thread recently made with this question. This comment is primarily a follow up
on the explanations regarding God's mercy and justice mentioned on the previous page (which also partly addresses the claim of 'indifference'/apathy
regarding God, or perhaps I can call it a clue, for more details see the link at the end):
Is there a contradiction between God’s justice and his mercy?
In reality, rather than contradicting each other, God’s justice and his mercy work together and contribute to the saving of lives. Justice and mercy
are two facets of his perfectly balanced personality. (Psalm 103:6; 112:4; 116:5) By undoing the wrongs of the wicked, God is showing mercy toward the
rightly disposed. That evidences his perfect justice. On the other hand, being fully just, Jehovah in his mercy allows for the
limitations of imperfect humans. You might put it this way: judgment where needed, mercy wherever possible. In the prophets’ messages, you can find
many statements that bear out this perfect balance, showing that God wants people to gain life.
