2. I grew up in an Evangelical family.

More and more I'm convinced that for Evangelicals, Jesus is just Santa Claus for slightly older children. The Yahweh of the OT who cast Adam and Eve out of the Garden, drowned the Earth and nearly every living thing on it, burned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah with everyone in them, drowned Pharaoh and his soldiers when the battle was already won, and tortured Job to win a wager with Satan is the one they love.

They're just into tormenting and smiting, and damning to eternal Hellfire.
