It is me again with my questions, haha. Please bear with me.
Can someone explain to me why God is very very angry, wrathful and downright hateful in the OT?
Reading through the most of the NT I say: Oh, well, he is a nice guy and I would gladly be associated with him. Reading some of the OT I really go back to my earlier state! He is hateful and very unjust.
For example why will God puish an entire nation for the sins of its king and handful of wrong doers responsible for the enslavement and Ill treatment of the Jews.
Why would God cause the killing of 3,000 Jews because they worshipped another God? How is that any different from Islam’s Hadd Al Reda ,(Killing of apostates).
Why would the merciful God exterminate the Caananites and kill even women and children! Guys, even the messed up Mohamed daren’t do such a horrile thing.
Why would he kill Uzzah, yes he broke the law, but why should this award death?
Why many mitzvots in the OT ends with you will die, too many deaths for a deity.
I left Islam because it had some thirst for violence and killing . Why should I believe in a religion that preaches the same.
From my earlier discussion here, I guess you don’t believe the Bible to be infallible as opposed to fundamentalist Christians.
So I guess you would come up with much better ‘justifications’ and so.
Also, is there a way to get in touch with a Catholic priest and Apologetic?
Thank you for your patience.
