How Does God Feel About Violence? by gideonjeta(m): 9:19am On Sep 04, 2022
VIOLENCE is widespread and has many faces. Aside from war, there is sports-related violence such as boxing, wrestling etc gang-related, school-related, and work-related violence as well as violence in movies, films. There is also domestic violence in many families. But how does God feel about violence?
Violence has a long history. The first act of physical violence by a human that is recorded in the Bible is described at Genesis 4:2-15 when Cain killed his brother, Abel. How did God react? The Bible explains that Jehovah God punished Cain severely for taking the life of his brother.
How should Christians conduct themselves in a world that is filled with violence? Christians should avoid association with those who promote or perpetrate violence. Christians are also warned to avoid all forms of uncontrolled anger, even verbal violence, as stated in Ephesians 4:31. Psalms 11:5 says "Jehovah examines the righteous one as well as the wicked one; He hates anyone who loves violence.".
So, it is clear God hates those who promote and practice violence without remorse.

No, he does not! 1 John 4:8 says God is Love. A loving God cannot love violence,that's why as stated in Bible verses mentioned earlier, he does not like those who are violent.

Proverbs 16:4
The LORD has made everything for His purpose—even the wicked for the day of disaster.

It seems the god of tanakh is different from the Chrestian god in New Testament.
