Why bother with the Old Testament?

The God of the Old Testament is so mean. He’s violent. He’s vengeful. The “God I know” wouldn’t ever be that way. The “God I know” would be more like this:

“I know that you are a merciful and compassionate God, very patient, full of faithful love, and willing not to destroy.”

Yes, sir, give me the real “God I know.” Give me that “New Testament” God.
