What if He appears omnipotent to us puny humans, but he's not really, and he's just some big strong alien dude who told us to worship him after showing us some cool magic tricks and we bought into it?

Basically I'm saying how do you know God's legit and not a liar? Since you're source of him being God is purportedly His word, You're literally taking him at his word. What if he lied. What if God is just a big space Donald Trump who lies about s*** and people eat it up w/o asking for evidence or proof or whatever?

hmmm

I TOTALLY get your point. Really I do.

But...

...Donald Trump could never produce the sort of self-giving, all-encompassing, eternal commands which Jesus gave to His followers. There's a reason why Jesus said that the one who hears Truth, hears His voice, and "the voice of another they will not follow."

I have full confidence that human beings have within them the capacity to recognize Truth. When you look out into the world and see the masses follow Hitler, Trump and/or any other corrupt leader, know that people are suppressing Truth. They are fully capable of understanding, but they choose to ignore/suppressing it.

***Disclaimer - I have no qualms against Trump in the sense of partisan angst. I'm just continuing that example.

To follow up and address the topic more directly:

I do not follow God because He told me to do so. I follow Truth, and it has led me to God.

"Anyone who is of the Truth hears my voice."

What if Satan really created the world, and God's the bad guy who's going into the pit for eternity, and he's just trying to get as many people to follow him as possible by getting everyone to pray in HIS NAME, which upsets the real god, Satan?

If God were a liar, he'd tell better lies. And in any case, what's the motivation to lie? Doesn't make sense from any angle that I can see.

what's a better lie than "I am the omnipotent creator of the universe you must worship me"?

Saying that, but in a way that everyone knows it was you that said it, and they actually believe it. We definitely do not live in a world where an almost-god has told that kind of lie.
