How can an unmerciful genocidal deity be the foundation, and guide, for a religion of peace?


Isaiah 45:7: I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create EVIL: I the LORD do all these things. (KJV) Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

    The give and take here is awesome. The argument in here is strong: the Old Testament God seems one of hate and cruelty. But, in my opinion, and as Lone77star wrote twice already one needs to know what is the original intent of those cruel actions?

    Right! No peaceful deities=No peaceful religions. Its all an elaborate smokescreen, fed to induced minds...which, through indoctrination, refuse to think and see the obvious.

    In other words...we should just pretend that we are incapable of reading and understanding plain English. Video seems kinda like a self-help program. Mind tricks to motivate people into believing the improbable. I prefer Chicken Soup for the Soul

    Fair enough. What about this one: 1 Samuel 15:3 (NIV) Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”

    Thanks

    Pedro, Thanks for your answer. It does seem blatantly clear that the New Testament God and the Old Testament God are not the same entity. However, someone saw fit to connect them. Why did Jesus say what he said in Matthew 5:17?

    Link,

    Yes it is obvious that followers of these religions cherry pick until they find enough verses to support a peaceful loving God, then rigidly support that position, while ignoring the 5 ton elephant in the room.
