Wink Holy? Just? Omni?

I often see thiests saying that God cannot tolerate sin because he is "Holy" and therefore anyone who has not been saved through Christ must burn in Hell forever, which is God being "just".
Question #1 - Exactly what does "Holy" mean and does your Bible give a clear definition of Holy,especially why God cannot tolerate sin?
Question #2 - If God cannot tolerate sin, aren't there Biblical instances where he causes people to sin and says evil was created by him? (if that is so, that would make him a hypocrite and "unjust")
Question #3 - If God is so big, powerful, and loving(all that omni stuff), why would such a small thing as "sin" bother him? (Seems like he could live with our short comings, after all he is so omni, but no, He is "Holy" and cannot. Seems too far-fetched for me!

If he is truly "omni"everything, then I guess he'd know the answers to those questions a little better than we would, right?

I go no further on this topic 'cause it tends to get a hair circular, besides this is not really a post about Biblical Archaeology, etc, and belongs in another area.

Respectfully,
Ish

It probably belongs in the "Existence of God" forum.
