God threatened his children: "I will spread shit on your faces and throw you out like dung." Malachi 2:3

Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and caste them from thee. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out. Whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6-9, Mark 9:42-48, Luke 17:1-2

Moses commanded that all the women who had experienced sex be killed, but the soldiers could keep the virgins "for their own use". These women were treated like animals, as the Lord directed. Numbers 31:17-18

Elisha had just inherited the power of God, and was eager to experiment. As he was walking, some boys mocked his baldness. He put a curse on them in the name of the Lord, and two bears came out of the woods and killed the children. II Kings 2:23:24

If a man has a stubborn, rebellious son who continually will not obey, the son should be stoned to death. Deuteronomy 22:18-21

He who has wounded testicles or an amputated penis, shall not enter the congregation of our God... and no bastards either! Deuteronomy 23:1-2

And it came to pass that King Saul's daughter fell in love with David, but David was too poor to provide a dowry. "No problem" the king said. "Just bring me 100 foreskins of my enemies." David, with God on his side, was an overachiever and killed 200, then carried out the mutilations to provide the divinely blessed dowry. I Samuel 18:14, 20-28

If two men are fighting and the wife of one intervenes to help her husband by grabbing the testicles of the other man, cut off her hand without pity. This is God's command. Deuteronomy 25:11-12

"If you people don't follow the guides for gracious living summarized in The Bible, and the advice of your religious leaders, this peaceful and ever-loving God will gladly vent his wrath upon you. You will be besieged by unimaginable plagues and terrors, you will be forced to cannibalism, even eating your own children and babies. You will drink your own piss and eat shit." Deuteronomy 28:45-63; Leviticus 26:29; II Kings 18:27; Isaiah 36:12
