I started out to write a short piece about how Moses must have been called a “self-hating Jew” when he castigated his fellow Jews for worshiping the golden calf.
But I was startled to discover that the Jewish God had ordered Moses to murder 3,000 sinners.
Obviously this was not the true God, not the loving God Jesus preached to the world.

From Exodus 32, we learn that the ancient Israelites suffered from ADHD. Moses had only been on Mt. Sinai a few days when they got restless and began to worship a false god. They built a Golden Calf and became debauched:
When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the Lord.” 6 So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings. Afterward they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.
God got wind of this and went crazy. He promised to destroy them.
“I have seen these people,” the Lord said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people. Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.”
Moses begged Him to calm down and be patient. God collected Himself and gave Moses the Ten Commandments.
But Moses too had a short fuse. When he saw the Hebrews worshipping the Golden Calf and partying, he “burned in anger.” He smashed the tablets containing God’s Commandments.
