Item Description...

The greatest puzzle in Christian theology is the difficulty encountered when someone makes an attempt to account for the strength of evil in the presence of an almighty God of love. How could corruption permeate the kingdom of such a perfect Creator? Many early Christians solved this dilemma by believing that the Designer of the old man is not the same One who fathered the new, spiritual man. The theologian's most difficult question is this: How could the God of love kill babies? This book solves this difficulty by documenting many distinctions between Israel's God of wrath and the Christian God of Love. Many early Christians were able to see that Abba, the Heavenly Father of Jesus, actually bore little resemblance to Israel's fearsome God. These early Christians believed the Heavenly Father was only revealed for the first time through Jesus, just like it is stated in Matthew. They also were aware of Jesus' assertion about his Heavenly Father that he never desired the death of even one child. When they learned that Jehovah once killed a multitude of babies in Egypt, this became a significant example of one of the many clear contrasts between Jehovah and Abba.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Tree Only Bears Good Fruit  Feb 8, 2007
Ray Embry says that in our society, if a man went through a village and systematically killed people, it would be very difficult for him to prove himself to be good and loving, yet Jehovah committed this exact atrocity in Egypt and Canaan, and yet there are many who claim he is both "good" and "loving". Embry continues, confrontingly;

"With such an inconsistent application of words, the distinctions between good and evil become unclear. We can say: The devil is evil because he might hurt people. What are we saying if we claim: Jehovah is good, even though he hurt people? Until we insist on more consistency in our use of language, we remain susceptible to a system of governance that subtly blurs semantic distinctions until in the end evil is being called good. ...and it is possible that we might wind up holding up as our highest ideal a murderer if we fall victim to the subtle trick of switching definitions." (p 49)

Shocking words, yet so vital that we hear this message in the world we know today! The book contains a beautiful message about a God of pure love - no punishments, no snakes, no storms, tsunamis or earthquakes; just pure compassion! Rather, it is humankind which projects its revengefulness and sinfulness onto God and onto the NT, which is not the true picture of God himself.

My only complaint is that the text could have been worded and worked in a tighter way, but it still gets 5 stars for its message and uniqueness.
