1 Samuel 15

[1] Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.
[2] Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
[3] Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

So many liberals think they are better than God for this part of His history as to think that God wanted to destroy every one in the wicked tribe ............... Still God commanded Saul to destroy man women and child of this wicked tribe who were the enemies and of Israel and of God as the spiritual devil used the Amalekites to defeat Israel ........ So Saul only killed the people and keep the best sheep and cattle and then disobeyed God and these cattle and sheep came back with the spiritual authority of the devil which God needed to destroy for His plan for Israel .......

To make it clear, God can hate as much as He loves, so that's a lot of hate because His love and mercy are so rich -- for those who obey of course.

If you really stop and think about it, even God does not have free will. He does have a will, the will of the spirit. God can't do things contrary to His nature which is love. Therefore He is not free to do things against His nature.
Which one of you two are wrong or just out right lying?

How do you read the Scriptures? Does God seem to be "just love" to you? Perhaps, given your city-data name, you would agree that the God of the Bible has great wrath.
