Hi, I am just trying this out, as I want to be bolder with my witness for Jesus, and love considering these questions with others. I live in Albuquerque. I want to improve being able to speak about the reasons for my faith and I love to learn from others and consider the questions that are so important.
I loved the child’s question and the other responses about did God commit murder with the flood. The verses I might add are Genesis 6:5, 6. It grieved him at his heart (KJV). This also brings to mind II Peter 3:9, and so many verses where we are reminded of his “longsuffering” such as the Psalms 86:15 and Ex. 34:6, 7. Compared to men who “hated Me without a cause” John 15:25, Ps. 35:19; 69:4. I guess for me it helps to think about Who God is and his character, justice and mercy/grace. Just things to consider.
