Seeing that you've asked...

If you interpret the bible literally, than yes he would have done. But one thing that I'd like to ask is what do you mean when you say that you can feel his presense? What can you feel which isn't being felt by your senses responding to physical stimuli in your surroundungs?

What you say about loving is correct, but that still doesn't refute the fact that God need not test us at all.

Why need you see the changes so much? There probably will be a change to some degree anyway. Personally, I think that the bible would be better off without said passages because there would be less to critisize it for; less things which will offend anyone with morals.
