Does God seem angry to you? Why does there seem to be so much more anger, hurt, death in The Old Testament? Is that the case? What about the death of men, women, even children? What about the flood? What about what people refer to today as Genocide? Even Richard Dawkins himself preaches how God is a jealous, wrathful, moral monster. Is this so? Did Dawkins dig into the whole text? Does he understand Gods plan through Abraham, and just why many were being wiped out? Are your own questions with God and why many things unfold accurate? Is it Gods will for people to suffer?
