Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
Agreed, Frogprince and Burke. Good point made! I do not deny the entire Old Testament by any means, I just object to the more negative parts of it. There are some magnificent and inspired sections in the Old Testament. It's the portrayal of a wrathful, angry, vengeful God that I am not in sympathy with. Such a God makes no sense to me. Such a God would merely be a mirror image of the very worst in human nature, and the worst in human nature is rooted in fear. I hardly think that God is fearful or jealous or anything like that...
