The Christians, though, sought to help god out by inventing the Satan character who explains where the evil in the world arises and tries to let god off the hook for the problems of the world. In almost works save the they claim god created Satan and thus everything lands up back to god who has to carry the can for the evil.
I've give you all a more detailed reply (and reply to my other threads) later tonight (a bit busy today) but I will say this:
If every part of Scripture really was inspired by God as the Bible claims, I would think that God would want to paint the best possible picture he could of himself, to show that he is both just and loves his creation. Especially concerning the Old Testament, in truth, I don't see that to anywhere near the amount I would think or like. So I think that the words of the Bible are more about the followers of God trying to promote a certain agenda. As I've said elsewhere: how can they really be certain they were hearing God, if they thought they did? Our brains lie to us all the time.
I will also bring this up in my other current threads (as I feel it's relevant), but I made a thread on the Christian forums regarding God's more violent actions in the Bible in contrast to John saying "God is love". The responses... well, some of them baffle me and I'm just not sure how to respond to them at the moment (nor do I currently have time to):
