Questions I have About God and the Bible

Is God Selfish?

Just posing the question makes one a little nervous. It seems so wrong to think of God as selfish, maybe a different word would help; but the implication of some scriptures seems to be God is all about God. Is God self-centered? Does He care mostly about Himself and only about us when or only if it impacts Him? Is He a petulant, uncaring, completely transcendent being? Or is He a loving, compassionate and kind King who loves each of us as a special and unique creation?
