When one reads the Bible in order, things make more sense. The God in Genesis does things a certain way, and it works out more consistent. The God in Jeremiah is consistent, within Jeremiah. The Bible is a collection of books, like The Book of Jeremiah , with different authors and the way they each wrote about God reflects that. Even if we had all these authors in the same place at the same time and witness the same events, they might describe it differently and emphasize different things said.
