This verse and so many others only make me want to study further. I wouldn't say God is schitzophrenic nor psychotic...
Then my strong advice to you is this: Do not read and study the Bible. Do not research it, look things up in it, or even read it like a book. You would be shocked to discover just how schizophrenic and psychotic the God of the Bible really is. However, if you cannot resist, as I could not, click here and read:

"Organized religion is THE deception that keeps us in fear of God and rejecting his grace. Religion keeps you from knowing God and keeps you blind as to what God is really like! Sadly, some confuse religion with Jesus, and walk away from them both, God and religion are separate entities that get intertwined together by man. ALL pagan religions are controlled by Satan! The elite created religion as a tool for control with a hidden agenda that aims to blind and misguide you away from the truth."
People go to church, they go through the motions, and then they forget it until the next time. Religion in the true sense is only mentioned once in the Bible in James 1:26. It is an external form of an inward work of God in the soul. Every other place it is mentioned, it is in a bad sense. It was religious people who cried, "Away with Him! Crucify Him!" This form of godliness is blinding people to their sins, and the need of our Saviour. There is a vast difference between religion and salvation. Salvation is what God has done and does do, for and in, man. Religion is the opposite. Many think their religion is going to get them to heaven; so they pursue it faithfully. What an awakening it will be when they are brought before the judgment bar of God, and they learn it's too late. Jesus died to open the way for them, by the faith in His blood, so they could have entered into heaven. Timothy is exhorted "from such turning away." It means to "avoid or shun them." Forsake trusting in your religion and turn your helplessness on the Christ who loved and died for you. LINK
"Every major religion in the world has been manufactured or infiltrated by the Illuminati to enslave and brainwash society. In essence, religion was the first form of mind control. The indoctrination of the masses by a "Trojan Horse" false religion has allowed the Illuminati to take control and work in secret for many, many years." Link
The problem is that nowhere does the Bible speak about “accepting Jesus as your savior”.
What does John mean by “receiving Him”? It means receiving Him in total. Not just as our savior and the one who blesses, but as our Lord and Master, as the savior and the righteous judge. It means accepting the conditions He set which includes “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24). John also qualifies receiving Him with two additional conditions. We need to believe in His name and we need to be born of God. This is far more than simply signing your name on a piece of paper. This involves the greatest miracle of all – when God through His mighty power transforms a sinner into a saint.
The Bible is clear that only those whose names are written (by God) in the book of life will be saved. And He does not write any names there that have not been washed from their sins by the Blood of His Son. God’s plan of how we are to be saved: the Blood of Jesus shed at the Cross of Calvary. LINK
