Various religions have their own philosophies. I'm sure others have along the same lines. For example, LaVeyan Satanism has its own several rules, some of which are along the lines of the 10 Commandments.

However, God is said to be the image opposing Evil, which is Satan, but if God can be Evil, he could be more so evil than even Satan. He can BE Satan. He's omnipotent.
He also has the ability to simply not exist.
Being omnibenevolent and omni malovent makes little sense for one being to be both. It's akin to saying "that tree is all oranges and all bananas". You cannot have both in one.

True, god theoretically could be worse than satan is.

If he killed himself now, then he'd exist in history, however, if he killed himself prior to his existence, or somehow killed whatever thing(s) may have made him, then he would have never existed. Somehow he always existed, therefore, killing himself at any point in time will render him existing in history, hence he will have existed.

Being perfect would imply not failing, yet you're saying to be perfect, then you have to fail... . I'm not following you on this.

So you'd have never forgiven yourself is you did indeed kill someone with an opposing view? You're breaking plenty of biblical passages, such as to love everyone, not to judge, not to kill, etc... .
