The words and deeds of Jesus are many as recorded in the New Testament.
Which words and deeds if any cause you to accuse Christ of being nasty or racist or xenophobic or a liar ? Check the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
That would be the main issue for me on how God was manifested for the Christian.
That would be my guiding principle on evaluating the character of God.
Do you think that should also be the guiding principle for other people ?
Or should the guiding principle be that we look out for a vile, nasty, xenophobic, liar who uses "God" to dignify his sins, and let that inform us of God's character ?
