Don’t blame God 

Spencer Bradford (“Is God violent? is not the right question,” Jan. 20), is correct that this is not the right question. Nor is it the right answer. God is not the one who is violent in the Old Testament stories. The people of Israel did the killing they wanted to do and then rationalized that God told them to do it. Don’t blame God for your own bad behavior.
