There are portions of the Bible which trouble even the most faith-filled of us – stories of blood, brutality, and barbarism. Those stories and commands provide opportunities for the enemies of God to attack His goodness and ethics. This series explores some of those troubling passages. These lessons are provocative and intense but aim at the core of who God is.

Elisha's She Bears
Did the prophet really unleash two bears to kill a host of little boys? For making fun of his baldness? How sensitive can a prophet be?
Nadab and Abihu
Did God execute these two over a simple exchange of fire? Fire is fire, isn't it?
Could God really create a place where people will be tormented forever? Where's the love in that?
Uzzah and the Ark
Was he really executed for an involuntary reflexive action?
How could a just God order His people to slaughter whole nations, including women and children?
