Why would God "desire" as He is sovereign?

Because he is a personal being, with a will. Is God's personality inferior to a human's?

Personality
Desire
Will
Love
Hate

Is it possible these attributes are extensions of anthropomorphisms? 

If Augustine was correct, is it possible he didn't go far enough?

A sovereign creator who knows the end from the beginning and who will always get His way, is it possible these attributes are just a way to "toy" with us since the outcome is predetermined?

Do you have a point? (I'm asking that question existentially.)

... is it possible...

Is it possible you are asking these questions  because your brain has been replaced with low-fat cottage cheese? Possibly, but I wouldn't stake a theology on it.

Ransom's Rule #1 - When you can't comprehend a question, ad hominem attacks are acceptable.

"Is it possible" questions are almost always deflections. At least when I employ a logical fallacy, it's obvious and I'm not pretending otherwise.

At least you gave me credit for using "low-fat" cottage cheese.
