let me discuss another special issue (my last one) from the closed "convert-me"-thread.
if you read the old testament what you is a vengeful, racist, sexist, and jealous deity.

1 Samuel 15:2-3
The Bible describes His way of being. Sometimes, the Bible says "God is ...". In my opinion, this is a description of his self. The self-descriptions, however, are limited to a specific number of characteristics. Nevertheless, many people start "finding" many more. If it's positive, it's ok, I think.
However, if it's criticizing, it means pretending to sit in judgement on God, I think.
Even if the Bible describes how he ordered the killing of an entire people (see Numbers 31:17), it speaks on the level of *actions*. That doesn't mean that it is anybody's right to infer from this action of his to the entire *person*, that is to say that he actually was racist. His reasons to order a killing could be multiple, we can only have a guess about it.
With sexism, it's the same, I think.
When Jesus tells his disciples to go to the Jews only, this meant it wasn't their task to preach to the other nations. As a comparison, VW USA only sells their products to USA, that doesn't mean VW is a racist company, as VW USA simply has its working field in the US.
That was easy.
Now let's turn to 1.Sam15, when the Lord ordered the killing of Amalek. The Amalekites were so enormously dangerous to Israel, Saul later was killed by an Amalekite BTW, that God wanted to have them out of the way, in my interpretation.
Have a good day
