Any Bible scholars around?

I wasn't really looking for psychedelic roots of Judaism or Christianity in this thread to be honest. I've read a lot about that and yeah it makes sense, but that's not what I'm trying to figure out here. 

I guess I'm trying to understand the logic behind some of these stories and the whole thing maybe. I mean we are told as christians to strive to be like God, yet the entire old testament is just page after page of examples of God behaving like a murderous psychopath. 

Why did God need to create the world anyway? Was he bored? Needed some light entertainment? Or just to feel Superior to someone? 

How do the angels or seraphim fit into the picture?

There is God, unloved, and not integrated, but that is still God.

Also, I am still trying to finish reading it so I should have no opinion actually :)

Fear, guilt, shame are products manufactured by a lack of love. I don't know that this is necessarily a Bible problem.

 

Words and understanding may not be the best tools for working on wounded spirit or feelings. 

 

The Bible says that God is love, though so maybe he's on the right track.
