It's All In The Interpretation

I assume you are referring to this line:

***The God of the Bible is amorphous, contradictory, and so forth.***

The first and foremost reason is the way in which that god has been interpreted and reinterpreted throughout the ages. The picture most have on him now is vastly different from the one people had five hundred years ago. In a truly constant and divine book, I don't think we should see this kind of mutation (evolution?) Moreover, god evolves in the Bible itself. In the OT, he was a vengeful, jealous warrior deity, but in the NT he must have had a midlife crisis or something because he made a whole about-face on that whole genocide thing. If god is truly omnipotent, I don't think he would be capable of changing his mind in such a fashion.

Plus, there are some contradictions in the bible that contradict other things it says, if you'd like me to post them.
