188. So you believe whatever is in the Bible is absolute truth
Well, yes. Just read the Old Testament. God's wrath is a terrible thing, He destroyed many villages, towns and peoples because He was furious with their behavior and as well as wiping out the whole world with a flood for the same reason. What people don't understand is, He created the world and he can destroy it whenever he wants.

So you believe God did all these things because this one particular book, the Bible, says so, and the Bible is the "inerrant and infallible Word of God", and not to be questioned.

I don't see your believing this, and regarding the Bible as being absolute truth not to be questioned, as being any different from a "good German" in the 1930's accepting and going along with whatever Hitler said as being absolute truth, not to be questioned. The God you depict is an arbitrary tyrant with a character not any different from that of Adolf Hitler.
