Theologians have designed God with a variety of properties. God is just. God loves us. God has always existed. God is perfect God is three persons in one God has infinite power God knows everything God is outside of space and time God created the Heavens and the Earth etc. From the Bible, we can also discover that God sometimes has regrets (about the flood) gets angry (with the Israelites) likes a contest (with Satan) etc. The latter properties are not usually included in the theologian's list. Just taking the theologians favorite properties, it seems that for a very long time, God did nothing, then suddenly burst into action and created the Universe with all it's beauty and dirt. But given that God is perfect and therefore has no need to get anything, such as food, fun, medicine, warmth etc. it seems that he cannot have any desires, needs, objectives. In short, he cannot have any motives. If he has no motives, then it explains why he did nothing before the Big Bang. After all, if one is timeless, then one cannot spend time ! I can see why Superman needs to fight the Joker and rescue Lois Lane but I can't see why a perfect Superior Being needs to do anything.
