W.L. Craig argues God does what he wants


W.L. Craig Argues God Does What He Wants.
Why his argument flops.
 
@3:00 W.L. Craig, Christian apologist, responds to atheist Sam Harris, who mentions biblical barbarisms.
@4:00 Craig says, "Those things can't show that God doesn’t exist; they might show “the Bible isn’t an accurate record of what God is like. In writing the narratives, the ancient Israelites got it wrong about God." 
 
Dobbie says: Well, then, for one thing, W.L. Craig should abandon the doctrine of biblical inerrancy.
Earlier, he allowed for Bible inerrancy. Later, however, he explains that "in writing the narratives, the ancient Israelites got it wrong about God."
W.L. Craig hasn't decided his mind.
 
Moreover, in behalf of God's actions in the Bible, @5:45 Craig says, “God is not bound by the same moral duties that we are.” 
 
Dobbie says: So then God causes destructions, after all. How typical of W.L. Craig to turn his own statements around.
Besides, one wonders why God commands warriors to destroy city populations when he could hurl a lightning bolt, thereby doing the job himself. 
 
I ask, Will the real W.L. Craig please stand up.
