Holiness

I hate the Old Testament. 

Well not all of it, but portions of it. God seems so angry,  right?

Well, it may seem unfair, but what's shocking about the Old Testament is that it is fair.  We see God executing fairness towards humanity. It's just that fair doesn't go well for us. We come up short and undeserving every time. We see a holy God displaying uncompromising holiness and it's terrifying (the good news is we see an ever-unfolding revelation of mercy as the story goes on).
