Man brother why so harsh and condecending. That's not even called for at all.
Yes Randy, Moses did warn Pharaoh a great number of times but does that suddenly justify a "Loving" forgiving and merciful deity to become a child murderer? I think not. Seems another instance of cognitive dissonance working itself out through justification. People don't want to come to the conclusion that the God being dealt with in the Old Testament is a mean angry wrathful child murdering psycho and so they go "Well the Pharaoh could have just stopped the whole thing, it was his fault
Yes it is, reason being, we turn the cheek everyday. Everyone loves anything that doesn't have to do with God. If you say I believe in God/Jesus your a nut job, or 50+ posts come up bashing you. I just cant take it any more. This sheep just took out his hammer. As a Christian I can't keep sitting by while fakes, and wannabees post outlandish things. If you don't know what your talking about don't post about it. It's simple really. If people where not lazy and just took 10 to 20 mins of their time, they could make a post that has some facts, instead BS
But see that's the thing, why does it disgust you to see people believing differently?

Someday he`ll realize that not all people with other opinions than him are satanically-motivated. Chocolate may help to alter brain-chemistry accordingly.

It just doesn't go together. Wrathful and merciful, patient and yet jealous, wait a minute here doesn't this guy sound like the other deities of the Middle East back then? The more you look at it the more flawed the God of the Old Testament becomes until he's completely out of character from what you learned God was in Sunday School (supposing you went). The God of the Bible sounds more than a little mentally unstable

Man I'm really hijacking this thread, I'm done unless boy wonder here finds some scripture to back his claim up.
‘The Lord is a man of war; the Lord is his name.’ – Exodus 15.3
You shall annihilate them - Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, Jebusites – as Yahweh your God commanded you.’
If God is all knowing, and knows the future, he would have been heart broken from the start Randy.
I believe in a higher power or "God",
Flaw 1: God is supposedly loving and merciful, yet sees fit that every first born CHILD of Egypt is to be mercilessly killed, this punishment is said to befall all who do not spread the blood on their doors, this would include innocents (who are, I remind you CHILDREN). Rather than punishing Pharaoh for his sin God punishes the most innocent of Egyptian people.
Flaw 2: All Loving merciful God sees fit to damn people to an ETERNAL pit of fiery torment. God offers absurd choice “Either serve me or burn forever” and then remains utterly silent and says nothing causing men and women to end up serving a morally bankrupt Church Doctrine.
Flaw 3: God commands the Hebrews to slaughter every living thing in Jericho, I assume there were children living there also.
Flaw 4: and 4.1 Slaves are taken in several cities as the Israelites make their way to the "promised land". We are to believe God condones slavery?
