Pastor Adam Ericksen introduces the merciful God of the Old Testament. While many Christians believe the God of the Old Testament is violent and vengeful, Adam highlights the mercy and compassion of God in the Old Testament. Jesus quotes Hosea “For I desire mercy, and not sacrifice”. These two strands weave through the Bible – mercy and sacrifice.

Adam references the book Heavenly Torah by Abraham Joshua Heschel for illustrations of violence in the Old Testament blamed on God but directed by humans.

“One Question with Pastor Adam” is a Raven Foundation production.
