In another question, What is Salvation all About and is it Necessary?, the discussion turned toward the question about the differences in the way God is presented in the Old and New testaments.
In the Old testament God is presented as being jealous and vengeful. God ordered the slaughter of thousands and thousands of people.
In the New Testament God is described as long suffering and gentle and patient. God loves all of us. In fact he loves us so much that he “sent his only begotten son…”
So why do you think there is such a dramatic difference between the way God is described in the two parts of the Bible?
