can anyone explain why the christian god commands the butchering of children and the unborn ? and can anyone explain how folks believe these are the words inspired by a loving benevolent god ???

The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open. (Hosea 13:16 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hosea%2013:16&version=NIV))

Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey. (1 Samuel 15:3 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Samuel%2015:3&version=NKJV))

and of course there's noahs "flood"

i understand killing donkeys because they can talk .....
