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.
One thought on “Why bother with the Old Testament?”
Mean? Violent? Vengeful? I think there’s much more to discover about the God of the OT.
