I have searched and searched and searched, but I can't find the trope I'm using, so I think it doesn't exist. Contrary to popular opinion, Judaism doesn't see God as being perfectly good. It is well established in Jewish theology that God is the source of both good and evil. When prayed to we appeal to God's good side (merciful, compassionate, etc.), but He simultaneously has an evil side (vengeful, jealous, etc.). Perhaps this isn't a trope because it is so rare. I cannot find a single religion in the world that views deities in such a way and I don't think I've ever seen it used in fantasy. Can anyone correct me on any of these points? Is there a God Is Good And Evil trope that I can't find? Are there other religions that see God in this way? Is there a fantasy story that uses this? Edit: The title is a typo.
