“Across the Atlantic Sea, and I’m a genius genius. I believe in God and I believe that God believes in Claude, that’s me,” goes the lyrics to a song in the musical “Hair.” I don’t know what God believes in, but the New Testament God doesn’t believe in ISIS, or terrorism, or killing innocent people in his name. The New Testament God is love. The Old Testament God is another matter.
My brother-in-law took on the challenge of reading the entire Bible cover to cover. When he finished, he said that the Old Testament God reminded him of George Steinbrenner. Vengeful, vindictive, bad-tempered and just plain nasty. I don’t know what God ISIS worships, but Allah is not on their side. Ask any rational, religious Muslim and you’ll hear the truth.
