Deuteronomy 18:9, 10 . . .When you are entered into the land that Jehovah your God is giving you, you must not learn to do according to the detestable things of those nations. 10 There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire,. . .
Jeremiah 32:35 . . .Furthermore, they built the high places of Ba′al that are in the valley of the son of Hin′nom, in order to make their sons and their daughters pass through [the fire] to Mo′lech, a thing that I did not command them, neither did it come up into my heart to do this detestable thing, for the purpose of making Judah sin.’
if you knew there was a city where everybody in that city was a rapist, pedophile, murderer, horrible, horrible people, would you rather if God continued letting them go about there wicked ways? Or would you rather God put His foot down, and slay the wicked?
There is much more to it than this, I am just beginning to scratch the surface.
Nonbelievers are so quick to judge and jump to conclusions without doing any amount of thorough research....for a group who prides themselves on knowledge and wisdom, they sure do lack any significant amount of insight....
(Psalm 139:16) . . .Your eyes saw even the embryo of me, And in your book all its parts were down in writing, As regards the days when they were formed And there was not yet one among them.
(Exodus 21:22-25) . . .“And in case men should struggle with each other and they really hurt a pregnant woman and her children do come out but no fatal accident occurs, he is to have damages imposed upon him without fail according to what the owner of the woman may lay upon him; and he must give it through the justices. 23 But if a fatal accident should occur, then you must give soul for soul, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 branding for branding, wound for wound, blow for blow.
"For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all",. . .
Joshua 24:15. . .Now if it is bad in YOUR eyes to serve Jehovah, choose for yourselves today whom YOU will serve, whether the gods that YOUR forefathers who were on the other side of the River served or the gods of the Am′or·ites in whose land YOU are dwelling. But as for me and my household, we shall serve Jehovah.”

Ok this is the insanity I grew up with as a Jehovah's Witness, answer me this, what freaking God who created everything picks a favorite people? Ridiculous, utterly ridiculous. God is love, but he'll pick these people over you, God is love, but he loves the smell of burning flesh, yum! God is love but if you learn the knowledge of good and bad you will be punished, if you worship another God you will be punished, if you don't follow the comments some dude wrote on a stone supposedly, you will be punished and you will be punished thoroughly.
The god of the bible sounds like a bipolar dictator to me. No thanks, I believe in love, I don't believe in Monsters.

Of course not. the mentioned god is a fraud, and his (or its) history of slaughter and destruction prove it. The only thing worse than this supposed deity is its followers who don't question the validity of its claims or motives.
