Hi Joe,

correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems one of your biggest sticking points with accepting God as a righteous being is the fact that in certain portions of the Old Testatment, God orders that entire populations be destroyed, including infants, and in your mind you cannot conceive of a God that could order the destruction of infants and still be considered "good" or righteous, from your perspective.

If you don't mind, I would like to offer a perspective on that thought, if I in fact, I understand it correctly...

and it is all about perspective...i.e. Hitler was an infant at one point...would you consider destroying Hitler as an infant, knowing full well who and what he would become, to be an unrighteous act?
