God's actions are not evil. He is incapable of evil & He is not accountable for fallability like humans are.<quoted text>
Doesn't the flood story undermine the claim that God is benevolent? In that story, God doesn't seem to know that when it made humans it made them flawed, then decided to kill them all except for one family, and afterward humans were still flawed. God is hardly portrayed as either omnipotent or even omniscient. Doesn't God know the consequences of it's actions? Because if it does, then it's actions are pretty much evil.
It is human arrogance that portrays God's actions as "evil". He knows what he's doing.
