If god needs to be protected - then god depends on the protector. And if god depends on a protector - then that protector must be more powerful than god. For this reason, men defend their god.
i guess this is covered in idols made of wood too btw. I mean you are like literally saying what Yah is saying in those passages. See we have forgotten the significance of "unpronounceable" and Unknown God now, any god whose name you can pronounce, and you can say you "know" enough to "love" (or hate) or accuse of "obvious mistakes" is a god made of wood, basically
As much as I enjoy that line of thought, I can't agree. Small children will loudly defend their parents, even though the parents are obviously more powerful.
Verbally (rather than physically) defending something has more to do with ego, than with the "something" being defended.
