    Did God Commit Atrocities By Ordering The Killing Of Entire Cities Of People?

    I am amazed at how some make outlandish claims that the God in the Old Testament seems to have so many divergent personalities; cruel, unjust, mean spirited, kind, loving, gracious etc. I think there are, however, two major areas which we humans (myself included)  have a...
