Obey Your Jealous God if you wish

The LORD passed before [Moses] and proclaimed, “The Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”
– Exodus 34:6
This was the verse of the day from Sojourners (A pretty good Christian organization as they go.) There’s the big G patting himself on the back; not an endearing quality. Seven verses on he tells Moses “ye shall destroy their (all the other tribes) alters, break their images, and cut down their groves.” In the next verse he proclaims himself to be “a jealous God.” A few verses later “Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee…”
Nothing wrong with eating unleavened bread but worshiping a god who is jealous and egocentric and teaches hatred??? Happy Passover.
