In reading the scriptures, it is clear that God has some serious anger issues, not to mention insecurities. How does he deal with anyone who displeases him in the Old Testament? He not only kills them, but their children, and their children's children. He can't stand the fact that there might be another god out there that people might want to worship, so he kills them and destroys all monuments to those other gods. He decides that all humanity deserves to be wiped out.
His son, the reasonable one, steps in. He says "Father, don't do anything rash. Let me go down and try to reason with them." And so he does. And just when you think all is well again, just when you think the old man has mellowed in his old age: we get Revelation.
So what is this guy's problem? Why is he so pissed off? Was it because he didn't have a father? A tumultuous childhood? Too much violence on TV?
