Who are we to judge God?

The following question was a response to the OP here:

See the OP. The topic is not scriptural interpretation opinions or assumptions, but logical arguments. That being said, however, what judgments about God have you made?

Have you judged that:

  1. God exists
  2. God is good
  3. God is love

“It is simply incoherent to concurrently maintain that you believe God is good but that you also cannot judge God.”

Have you judged that:

  1. God is the God of Islam, or
  2. God is the God of Buddha, or
  3. God is the God of the Lord & Savior of all, Jesus Christ

Have you judged that:

  1. God is a miracle worker today, or
  2. God retired from working miracles

Have you judged that God is:

  1. a puppet master & we are all just His puppet toys He plays with like a child with dolls who keeps & loves some but others throws in the trash or fire forever, or,
  2. a lover who grants humans libertarian free will to choose to love Him back

Have you judged that God is the:

  1. savior of all human beings, or the
  2. annihilator for eternity of many, or the
  3. torturer for eternity of many

What judgments about God have you made? Is it possible you are wrong about any of them? Have you ever been wrong about them or anything else?

Have you judged that Love Omnipotent is a torturer of billions for eternity, when in truth He will actually become “all in all”? What would that say about - your - judgment of God? Would God be pleased that you characterized Him as a monster?

Lk.12:57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right? (- Jesus)

Prov.31:9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

“God made us with a judging mind. Every day we are constantly judging—she is smarter, he is nicer, that car is better, this is a better buy, that tastes better, this is healthier. But is there a time to judge God? “Because for every matter there is a time and judgment…” (Ecclesiastes 8:6)."

1 Cor. 2:15a But he that is spiritual judgeth all things…
