Your blind acceptance of everything is lazy and dangerous. Jesus will not be pleased.

It has nothing to do with rejecting half of what Jesus said, jimmie. That is your view. It is about accepting ONLY those things attributed to Jesus that are consistent with the Spirit of agape love He unambiguously revealed by His life and especially His death.God is NOT schizophrenic. God IS agape love and anything not compatible with agape love can NOT be from God or Jesus, period! You accept a schizophrenic God because you accept the corrupt interpretations of vengeful men who did NOT have the Spirit of agape love (Who IS God).

You have drawn a line in the sand for God, based on how you feel God should be.

No, jimmie, Jesus drew the line and He made it unambiguous by His death. He smote no one. He even loved His torturers and murderers because they knew not what they did. That is the TRUE NATURE of God. How can you reconcile that unconditional love and acceptance with your belief about a vengeful God who required blood sacrifices to appease Him??? Do you even try to know God using the "mind of Christ" ro do you continue to use the ancient Jewish understanding of God?? As aChristian you are supposed to use the understanding of God revealed by Jesus. You will have to explain why you did NOT question the obvious differences, contradictions, and inconsistencies.
