IS GOD CRUEL? IS GOD LOVE?

 
 

 INTRODUCTION

For centuries atheists, agnostics and even some believers, have described the God of the Bible as a very stern and cruel Being. Some influential thinkers have stressed that the "God is love" idea is especially contradicted by some of God's works as described in the Scriptures. A God of love, they insist, would never wipe out humanity as Yahweh did during Noah's time, nor would He have destroyed whole cities simply because of their immoral behavior. Furthermore, they assert, a loving God would not have used a favorite tribe to wipe out Canaanite men women and children simply because their ways did not please Him.

No doubt, the God of the Bible is responsible for the events described above and for many other events that, when looked at superficially, do appear quite perplexing. But was God really cruel, or is there much more to His actions that unbelievers have seen or refuse to see?

In this site, events that appear to show God as cruel are analyzed thoroughly. The analysis is done in a thought-provoking "What if God...?" way. That is, the author will hypothesize what would have happened if God had not intervened in each case the way He did. This exercise will make it abundantly evident that God handled each situation with  both wisdom and justice.

This is a work in progress. In the future, it is hoped that other challenging questions will be tackled, so as to help undo some of the doubts that unbelievers have sown in many minds.

 If you have any questions or comments, feel free to communicate them with the author who will do his best to address them as time permits.
