During the recent attacks between Israel and Palestinians innocent children were killed. Israel’s leaders express regret for killing innocent children but contend Hamas situates itself among innocent people, making such causalities unfortunate but necessary.
Alarmingly, in the Bible we read about a God who kills innocent children. God demands the life of David’s newborn son in recompense for Uriah’s life (2 Samuel 12). God also kills the first born of Egypt. (Exodus 11:4-8)
More than ever, the world needs a liberal Christianity which reads the Bible honestly and critically.
