    Simple really. Aslan arrived at his conclusion by picking and choosing snippets of Old Testament text suggesting a vengeful or warlike God, while ignoring, the text of the New Testament which demonstrated Jesus’ teachings and actions turning the other cheek and loving thy neighbor, including enemies. He often uses only parts of passages that seem to reflect his viewpoint when the passage in full absolutely refutes his work. Look it up, plenty of rebuttals that show this guy for the simple liar he is.

    This guy is only getting attention from people who themselves have no knowledge or understanding of the historical context of early Christianity. It’s grist for the ignorant.

      If you mean the Christians™, just say “the Christians™” already!
