Biblical Terrorism II

It is also worth noting that from a Biblical perspective the discussion in the prior post on this topic does not seem to depend on any conclusion that what Moses did was participate in good violence, and good war. The voice from the whirlwind tells Job that human answers to the questions generated by the acts and orders of God are wrong and that, furthermore, God himself offers no explanation. Job must wait and endure. God's answer to Job is not "What I do and what I tell you to do is good," it is "Do as I say because I am God, and I'll do as I like for the same reason."

Hey, who does he think he is? ... God?
