Is God Good?
Jesus tells us that there is none good but one - that is God Matt 19:17. Is good truly good? How do we explain all the violence in the Old Testament where God is apparently drowning millions to death, sending fire upon whole cities and incinerating them plus commanding His followers to genocide whole nations. Is God truly good?
In the Old Testament the following Bible verses are given.
Thus says the LORD of hosts: 'I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.' " 1 Sam 15:2-3
This appears to be saying that God commanded the complete genocide of the Amalekites with specific instruction to slaughter nursing babies. Is this what God is truly like? How is this anything like Jesus?
How do we make sense of this?
The Bible tells us that God would destroy man in a world wide flood because of his wickedness. Gen 6:7. Christianity teaches that God caused the flood to come on the earth to wipe out potentially millions of people.
Can you picture people running in terror as the God of the universe seeks and destroys those who have resisted Him? Small children in terror gasp their last breath, mother's shreaking in terror as their lives are snuffed out.
Did God really do all this? Does this represent His character? This presentation explores the Bible truth that sin affects the earth and sin causes the earth to react. Climate change is real but it is not carbon that causes climate change - it is sin.
Learn the truth that the flood was caused by man through the elements of nature. Carefully read the story and learn the truth on this subject.
