Most Powerful Violence In The Old Testament quotations
The violence in the Old Testament and New Testament is descriptive.
The violence in the Koran is for all time and it is prescriptive. And Mohammed said "I have been made victorious through terror.".
Many who are convinced that God is non-violent simply dismiss the Old Testament accounts of God commanding or engaging in violence. I don't consider this to be a viable option, for Jesus treats the whole Old Testament as the inspired Word of God. My cross-centered interpretation of these violent portraits allows believers to affirm that God is non-violent while also affirming that all Scripture is "God-breathed.".
