Obviously, slaughtering thousand or millions of people in the name of God was probably not what He had in mind in order to show His greatness or Love. So where was He? You have faith that His Holy Spirit guided in creating what we call the bible. You have faith that He guides the devout with the Holy Spirit and that He is with you in your most difficult times.
So then where was He when the innocents were being killed in His name? Surely He would not stand behind such a massacre? And clearly He did not side with the non-believers or else the Crucibles would not have happened.
Note: i am NOT bashing. almost every time i ask a question someone seems to think i'm being a troll. That is not what this is about. This is about me making my best attempt to "seek God".

Humans seem to be naturally violent to me, especially in history. I don't believe God had anything to do with wars and persecutions. I believe in God, but I do not believe God has any personal interactions with humans or earth. anyway, no religion is innocent. the ancient Hebrews killed other religions, the early Christians were killed by the pagans, then the pagans were killed by the Christians -- catholics persecuted protestants, then protestants persecuted Catholics. Orthodox Christians persecuted the Jews and then the Atheists persecuted Orthodox is Russia. It goes on and on...

anon :54 that's called bible hopping. And when you do that around this site you have to "read the entire passage" as not to take it out of context.
And to the OP that was not God, but crusaders in the name of their own twisted religious views of right and wrong.
