Under Christian theism, God is the standard of morality, his qualities of goodness, justice, patience, love, etc. When he issues an "edict", it has moral authority, as it comes from the creator of everything who has these qualities. 1poorguy implicitly affirms that if such a God existed, he would be such a standard.

Under Christian theism, God's personal preferences are given precedence for no good reason. Making 1poorguy more powerful wouldn't make his personal preferences more 'moral.' This extends all the way up to the power of a God.

Because you guys keep using the language of objective morality.

There is no language of objective morality. A morality sourced from a thinking being's personal preferences isn't moral, no matter how powerful or non-powerful that thinking being is.
