I can't really say for sure that they are different, of course, I can't even say 'for sure' that god exists at all. However, there was a change in either how god behaved in the old testament vs the new OR in how the liberal media was spinning his actions. ;-)
Let's review a couple of the classic hits god had during the old t.
Turning Lot's wife into a pillar of salt because she turned around to look at the town she was told to leave. Sure she was told not to look back but this clearly demonstrates not only god's anger problem but also suggests he has a problem with insecurity. Incidently, Lot's wife had looked back to see the destruction god was exacting on her town of Sodom/Gomorrah...he killed everyone in town except Lot's family...except, except Lot's wife.
Then, one of my favs, God does his psychotic game show host routine and convinces Abraham to kill his son Isaac as a burnt offering. Just before Abraham slices his own son's throat god stops him and tells him he was just kidding...use a goat instead.
You just can't find this sort of Wes Craven/Stephen King style entertainmnet in the new t. ;-)
