God Seems Evil in the Old Testament: Some Old Testament passages make God sound really evil, particularly when he has people massacred or annihilated. How come God just doesn't do it himself? God Not Good All the Time: Is it legitimate to say that "God is good all the time" in light of all the terrible judgments in the Old Testament? [I Samuel 15]. God Sends Evil Spirit: When the Bible says that God sent an evil spirit, how do you understand that and harmonize that with a good God? [I Kings 22:22, Job 1, I Samuel 16, Judges 6-9, Judges 9:23].
