Why do you supposse so many Christians of today want to distant themselves as much as possible from that god?
It could be, that having denied themselves of an accurate understanding of the Hebrew texts, they flip and flop like a frightened flounder whenever the subject comes up.
After all, Frank, many who call themselves believers have an understanding similar to yours about Genesis, ch. 3. That's where the God dishonoring doctrines of predestination and reprobation came from. Happily, God will soon set those beliefs in their proper place.
