IS GOD LOVING, MERCIFUL AND JUST?


raphael2Christians think their god is a loving god who is merciful and just. Most of them are as sure their god is loving as they are that he exists. But what does the Bible say?

In Genesis 7:21-23, God drowns the entire population of the earth: men, women, children, babies, and animals.

In Exodus 12:29, God slaughters all Egyptian firstborn children and cattle to punish the Pharaoh

In 2 Samuel 12:15-18 God kills David’s baby to punish David.

The Bible has dozens of examples of God committing murder, including mass murder, of unjustly punishing people and of inciting the Hebrews to kill, to take slaves and to rape.

It is plain this is not a loving god. It is a vengeful god who places a VERY LOW VALUE on human life. So why are Christians so certain that their god is a loving god?

Maybe it’s because they WANT him to be loving or because they are told God is loving and they don’t bother to read their own scripture? I don’t know. Perhaps they will tell us?
But, if they are so wrong about this crucial aspect of God’s character, what else have they got wrong?

    Is a judge who punishes a rapist by sentencing him to prison unloving? The administration of justice does not necessarily preclude love as a characteristic of the judge. This is a false dichotomy. You may disagree with God’s justice but you cannot say his justice is by necessity unloving (see judge example above). Thanks.
