Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
There are a lot of things about the OT God that are hard to accept. Joshua engaging in genocide, the nuking of the twin cities (Sodom and Gomorrah), and I happen to like shell fish and cheeseburgers.
There is also a lot of wisdom and poetry in those books, especially the psalms.
There is a lot of wisdom in the New Testament. What Amos said is interesting but I do not understand it.
