I recently was talking with some people who were attacking me for believing in God and the Bible. They were saying that if you really believe the bible then you must believe God is unloving, vengeful, and stuff like that. Not just that He is loving and merciful.
God is above all. His understanding and logic is beyond ours. He is Loving, but sometimes in His love there is correction and many things we might not like.
But just as Lincoln said we must accept all of it.
2 Tim. 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
