I also thought that Yahweh was the Jewish god, yet Christianity does not have Yahweh following his own law. Christians have Yahweh murdering his own son as a sacrifice that goes against most sane laws.
God didn't kill Jesus. Jesus was crucified, like many other victims of crucifixion, because ruling authorities failed to forgive and take mercy on sinners, as Jesus preached. Sin is judged through natural patterns of cause and effect. We can forgive and have mercy on each other because we are all guilty of sin and thus condemned to death. What Jesus did was bring us realization of eternal life through rebirth.
Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
Deuteronomy 24:16 (ESV) "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.
God, it seems to me, has screwed up creation and wants to blame the creation for his own
The creation includes the possibility of sinning, but it excludes the possibility of sin failing to cause harm. I.e. you can choose to steal, but you can't prevent your act of theft from causing loss/harm to whomever you steal from.
That is simply the interaction of free will with deterministic causation. Some interactions involve free will while others involve mechanistic determination. It isn't true to say that you don't have a choice when you do, or that a falling stone has a choice whether to keep falling or stop in mid-air.
Both free will and deterministic causation occur within the creation. Free will may itself be a product of deterministic mechanisms taking place within the brain, but somehow that doesn't prevent us from having and exercising choices in certain situations.
Saying that God 'blames' us for things is a projection of human egotistical logic onto God. When an apple falls out of a tree and hits you on the head, it is not because God 'blamed' you for standing under the tree at the moment the apple fell. On the other hand, though, if you were standing under the tree because you were picking apples in an orchard planted by choice, and you made the choice to work in the orchard, and you made the choice to stand under the tree even though you knew that apples were ripening and falling regularly, etc. then you could probably extrapolate some pattern of causation that attributes blame to various moments of decision-making, AS WELL AS to the natural phenomena that helped the apple fall, such as ripening/softening of fruit, gravity, wind, etc.
All those various factors interact to cause effects, and they include human choices/actions as well as natural forces and patterns of causation. By attributing the entirety of the universe and all its causal complexities to God, you can blame God for everything and anything, but it would be like slipping and falling when you walk into a local store and then blaming the CEO of the corporation. I.e. it would be sloppy logic.
