Contradictions

By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for our brethren.” 1 John 3:16

You shall fear the Lord your God and serve him, and shall take oaths in his name.” Deuteronomy 6:13

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7

For the Lord your God is a jealous God among you, lest the anger of the Lord your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the dace of the earth.” Deuteronomy 6:15

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! For his mercy endures forever.” Psalm 118:1

Then if you walk contrary to me, and are not willing to obey me, I will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins.” Leviticus 26:21

Wait a minute… am I reading from the same book?? What poor character development… Am I supposed to like this guy or hate him? If the Hunger Games trilogy was this confusing they sure as hell wouldn’t have made a movie out of it let alone used it to try to convince an entire population that it was based on warnings from a time-travelers first-hand experience in the future. Although, because it is not so poorly written, I’m sure I could start by drawing parallels to the god of Christianity, lure in some innocent believers and then eventually create my own religion. Hmm… there’s an idea. I could probably get a real following from that….
