For four thousand years God never gave two hoots about the world of mankind that is suggested by john 3;16 and how do we know that ? simply by looking at his dealings with mankind for the first 4000 years of his dealings with humans as shown by the "Old Testament"
1. God only dealt with a couple or a few individuals early on in the O.T.
2.God only dealt with one family line whom he chose above anybody else .
3.This family line the Israelites became a nation whom God dealt with exclusively.
4.To the exclusion of every other peoples on earth ,he favoured who became the Israelites and he obviously had a hatred for any other people and was instrumental in trying to get the Israelites to commit genocide on many occasions against these people who God had never taken an interest in .
5.Jehovah God on numerous occasions instructed the Israelite`s/Jews wipe out the Amorite`s , the Hittites ,the Jebusite`s ,etc ,etc, and with the blessing of him not to feel sorry for them kill old man woman and child and do not feel sorry for them.
Jehovah god actually gave the Israelites /jews sanctions to commit genocide amongst these nations in the "Old Testament "
So it sort of contradicts what is said in John 3: 16 doesn`t it .
