Questions of Life: 2 of 7: Can we love the Old Testament God?

Psalm 103 According to Richard Dawkins: “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
Although not all of us might express it quite like Dawkins does (!), many people question whether such a God should be worthy of our worship and love. Listen in as we consider this question together.
