According to the Bible, God had to wipe out humanity with a flood and basically start over. He also had to appear on Earth to die and be resurrected to atone for the sins of humanity much later on.
Basically, the Bible is saying that God didn’t get things right the first or the second time. He had to make some big changes to steer things on a better path.
That being said, there are claims that the Christian version of God is perfect.
Biblical evidence seems to suggest otherwise.
If God is perfect and the events of the Bible are at least somewhat accurate, He must be toying with us. That calls His love into question.
If God is not perfect and the events of the Bible are at least somewhat accurate, maybe He is trying His best to keep things functioning well on Earth for humanity in a loving way.
No matter how you look at it though, it seems to be an impossibility that God is both perfect and loves humanity – at least according to the Bible.
Speaking of the accuracy of the events in the Bible, there is a fantastic show being aired in North America these days that explains how scientists know what they know about the universe. It’s called “Cosmos: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY“. If you are able to find a way to watch this series, I highly recommend it from what I’ve seen so far.
What better way is there to learn more about God’s Creation than to study the verifiable evidence that exists all around us?
