Can you picture Jesus using genocide as Noah’s God did?

The O.T. God has been described as the vilest God imaginable.

The N.T. shows Jesus as a much softer and gentler and loving God.

Many say that Jesus is God even though there are many who dispute that notion for a number of good reasons.

For this O P, I will assume that there is a Trinity. If you are a Trinitarian, then you would have to see the non-judgemental Jesus who would not even stone a prostitute, as the judgemental O.T. God of Noah’s day, --- who will even drown babies and children.

How do you reconcile the O.T. God with the kind, gentle and forgiving Jesus?

Some will point to a new covenant but God himself says that nothing he says will ever be retract and Jesus himself referred back to the old covenant in the bible so let’s not argue that please.

Can you picture Jesus doing the vile things that scriptures say he did in the O.T.?

Try reading the verses BEFORE the actual flood to see what God was observing and WHY He caused the flood and saved Noah and his family.
You know, context.

So you can really picture Jesus as the O T prick. Ok.

So much for the God of love that you prefer to see kill than cure.

Nothing like God taking the satanic moral low ground.

Some people claim that Jesus IS the God of Noah.
Most can somehow see Jesus drowning all those children and babies yes.

They also have to see him as torturing Kind Davids baby for six days before finally killing it.

Thy especially love to visualize that.

Context does not explain why a God who can cure as well as kill chooses to kill instead of cure and takes the satanic moral low ground instead of the moral high ground.

Try again.

A warm place with no memory.
Jesus was just a man.

Noah's Ark was (presumably) just a boat.

Faith in allegory has always escaped me.
Always.

God hit the reset button. Do you honestly think he wouldn't do so again ? Look around you people we are mired in sin. He gave us Jesus to help us live.

Indeed.
Literalists are to be pitied and so are their victims.

It is my view that all right wing literalists and fundamentals hurt all of us who are moral religionists, --- as well as those who do not believe. Literalists hurt their parent religions --- and everyone else, be he a believer or not. Literalists and the right wing of religions make us all into laughing stocks. Their God of talking animals, genocidal floods and retribution has got to go. So must beliefs in fantasy, miracles and magic. These are all evil.

They also do much harm to their own.

Why not complain about mortality altogether?
Live forever and never get sick.
In fact, never get hungry, tired, thirsty, cold, hot, run out of breathe.
In fact, why did God create a creature that even needs to breathe?

Where do he complaints begin or end?

If we need a reset, why would you want God to kill instead of cure?

Why would you want him to take the satanic low ground instead of the moral high ground?

Why do you think he would not do the right thing?
