LQ, thanks for your answers. I am really enjoying the conversation.
I understand the difficulty you must be facing. As I posted earlier to HavocWing, whether you believe the Bible to be true or not, if we are going to discuss the God of the Bible, especially his actions, motivations and any contradictions that may be in the Bible, the conversation will be more productive if we assume, for the sake of the conversation, that God is real much like we would assume the characters in the Harry Potter books are real if we discussed their actions and possible (true to character) motivations.
