What God loves and hates is fairly consistent throughout "right hand path" religions.

God loves fairness and hates injustice.
God loves mercy and hates cruelty.
God loves truth and hates lies.
God loves wisdom & knowledge and hates ignorance.
God loves healthy, constructive behavior and hates unhealthy, destructive behavior.

You could say I chose my God because He hates what I hate, but I don't think that's a bad thing.

Not to get into a huge debate here. But for example, the God of the old testament tried to keep humans from the tree of knowledge, so 4th point is debatable.
The story of Job brings your 1st into question. His use of fire and brimstone raises questions about #2.
Also not sure why you disagree but then in your comment you agree?

Adam and Eve lived in paradise, without the knowledge of pain and death, good or evil. But, against the advice of God, they chose to know good and evil, and one cannot truly know something without experiencing it, so they could no longer live in paradise.

The story of Job has a happy ending. Ultimately it's a parable about not letting adversity shake your faith.

I disagreed because there are things I choose to hate. Refer to my OP for a shortlist.

So God advised them "against" knowledge yet your list claims he loves knowledge and hates ignorance.

God knew that eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil would mean they would have to experience pain and death, and God did not want that for them.

Now that we live in the world of good and evil, knowledge and wisdom are necessary to do what is good and avoid the pitfalls of evil.

Not to belabor the issue, but it seems to me that you are right in your last comments here and that it still brings into question your assertion that 'god loves knowledge', when he clearly tried to keep knowledge from his creation, regardless of his loving reason for doing so.

He did not 'love' knowledge, he sought to keep it to himself - with good reason! but still.

I don't claim to know the mind of God, I was just explaining my understanding of that story.

Clearly, in this world, knowledge is power, and wisdom is necessary to use power responsibly. The value of those things is obvious to me, I can only assume it's obvious to you too.

Interesting. But, you somehow 'know' how people 'choose a god'?

How is it that came to choose nothing?

It's almost comical the way some people spend so much time trying to convince people to stop believing in God because they think it's stupid. Meanwhile, they want you to believe in what they believe.

atheists hate a lot. I have been verbally and emotionally abused by many of them throughout my life. Granted, you, as an individual might be fine. You probably are. But, please,please don't act like atheists are above hatred,pettiness,etc. They aren't. In regards to "choosing a God that hates what they hate".... I did the opposite. I found and follow a God of love,tolerance,acceptance. Do people use God to cover or justify hate, of course. It sucks because it makes others distrust and hate them instantly,thinking they are all the same.
