I don't quite understand god's motive

Canyon Shearer says [in a comment to Evolution: A Fairy Tale For Grownups]:
God created the world for four major purposes:

First is the creativity and power of God; he created an infinitely big universe where no star, no human being, no snowflake is exactly the same as another.

Second is to show us how bad sin is, that it has led to the death of everything, that it causes unbelievable suffering, and that it is contagious.

Third is to show us that good can only come from God, and apart from God, not even the angel Lucifer can put together a working planet, having been labeled the ruler of this world. He demonstrates perfect justice, mercy, love, hatred, and a myriad of others.

Fourth is to put these three together; it shows how amazingly good and genius God is, that he is capable of saving us from sin but only by willingly going to the cross and taking our punishment, then showing his power by defeating death and bestowing his goodness on us.

How could God possibly love his enemies if he had no enemies?

Why does god need to show off to his lowly human of how great he is? I don't understand the motive of god creating this universe and man, ... etc!
