The Bible presents its god, Yahweh, as having amazing supernatural characteristics:
1) Omniscient- It is claimed that this god knows all, past, present and future. One very interesting bit of knowledge that this god is claimed to have is found in Mt 7:13-14. This verse teaches that man's ultimate destination is either heaven or hell. And that this god knew before creating the first human, that if he went ahead with this plan to create man found in the Bible, that this version of man would be so flawed that most would wind up in hell.
2) Omnibenevolent- "All-loving, or infinitely good, usually in reference to a deity or supernatural being, for example, 'God'. Its use is often with regards to the divine triad, whereby a deity is described to be simultaneously omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent. This triad is used especially with the Christian god, Yahweh." (yourdictionary.com). And in conjunction with this alleged omni characteristic it is claimed in 2 Peter 3:9, that he doesn't want anyone to perish, i.e., wind up in his eternal hell.
