Text So why does god get glorified for this? You could sit and blame the pharoah but how many of those children had anything to do with the events
surrounding this story. Why does god get a free pass to murder children?
Why does God get a free pass? Because He is God. I think you have missed the point in life. You can't give God anything much less a free pass.
It is God who gave you the free pass. In all reality it is God who should fry all of us and not that we should fry God.
God created us and gave us free will to do anything we wanted to do. But He never ever told us that there would not be rules and regulations to
follow with free will. Along with the rules and regulations He also told us the punishments for disobeying those rules and regulations.
That's the problem today with people just as it was back then. We do what we want and break rules and regulations every day. Both against our own
government and God Himself. Death is part of life and everything that lives must eventually die. Just because you live to be an adult does not make
it any less or more to God. Eventually all must die but we value this life far more than we value eternal life.
God gave Pharaoh, as well as all people, the opportunity to live forever in His kingdom. That is a gift. Now whether you or I take advantage of this
opportunity is our right of free will to do so or not to do so. Pharaoh and his people had the same free will and the same rights as we do today.
Now if I experienced what the Egyptians experienced and saw all of those plagues that happened, I most certainly would have been smart enough to have
realized that this God of Moses was no match for me.
Are you saying that God did not give this guy and his bunch a break? You mean to tell me that ten chances are not enough to change your mind? If
your saying that, then I sure don't think you are in your right mind and I sure don't think the Pharaoh and his people were in the right mind
Let me ask you a question. Do you believe that God had ever loved Adolph Hitler? Think about it. Did God ever love Esau who was Jacob's twin?
Mal 1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness. Did God ever love this Pharaoh that we
are talking about now?
Rom 9:17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name
might be declared throughout all the earth.
What about the holocaust? Could not God have prevented it from happening? And yet Jews curse God today just as they have always cursed Him. All
people curse God every day by not following the rules and regulations. Search the history books and you will see these and worse atrocities by
the scores. And then when it comes to dying we all cringe in terror and blame God. We all think we are big shots just like Pharaoh thought he was a
hot shot but wait till we suck that last breath.
Why are little kids any more to God than big kids? What if God would make it a rule that little kids would have to become 21 years old before they
could ever die? Would that help matters ? Little Adolph grew up and became a big Adolph. Did that help matters? Little Pharaoh grew up to be
big Pharaoh but did that help matters? Little Esau grew up to be big Esau and we all know that didn't help matters. What makes you think the
little Egyptian kids would have been any better? All of those Egyptian first born were not little kids. Most were grown people and probably some
were in the Pharaoh's army. Would those who were little kids have grown up to be servants of the God of Moses? Hardly think so. Probably would
have grown up to be a Pharaoh spear chucker just like the big kids. I know that I would think twice before I would ever pick a fight with a God who
created me. Stupid is what stupid does.
