14. Not Everything Biblical is Christ-Like

Summary: “God is Love” is confirmed by the teachings, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. What are we to do with some of the scriptures that suggest God is telling people to kill, to go to war? There is a progression of understanding in scriptures from a principle of unlimited vengeance (70x7), to limited vengeance, to limited forgiveness, to unlimited forgiveness (70x7 again).

Jesus says love and forgiveness is the true revelation of God’s nature and character which we should imitate.
