I wouldn't be too hasty in reading anything into God or the Bible. I have no problem with anyone living by the ethical principles it lays down, for their own sake, if that's what the reader agrees with; but I don't see the use in arguing something that can be interpreted to encompass both the argument and the counter argument. I'm sure there are a lot of things in the Bible that weren't thought to mean what they're thought to mean now, before scientific investigation came up with undeniable answers, and those things were probably interpreted as meaning the opposite to what they do now, at the time. Same goes for God, if you ask me; the whole thing is just so full of holes that it defies understanding, except by admitting religious 'mysteries' or something; and if that's the case, there's no arguing one way or the other. It's why there are no conclusive arguments for or against God, and why nobody can truly convince anybody but themselves, or so I think.
