You can't questions the morals of God without excepting what he says as true. If you don't believe in what he said is true than to pick apart what he
said is foolish.
Some things that you need to understand before you question God about Job or Exodus.
1. No one is innocent, not one.
2. God Punishes everyone he loves.
If you cannot grasp or at least accept these two concepts than you cannot grasp the concepts in the bible. It really is this simple.
If you can accept these two things than you can see that God was teaching discipline to his servant Job. Proving that he loved Job, and understand
Job also received twice is much after because he remained faithful to God through his discipline.
The children killed by God are not the ones to suffer. They died in their sleep; the day of their judgment came that night. We should all pray to
die in our sleep. God was proving to the people and to Pharaoh that there was only one God. And that God was not something visible like a man but
rather something that cannot be seen. I am pretty sure Pharaoh knew he was not literally the immortal son of the God Ra.
Since he refused to repent and turn to the truth he and the people that believed him were punished. Proving that they were also loved by God, because
he punishes all that he loves.
You can't pick apart the bible anyway you choose and expect to understand anything it says. You must first accept many concepts that are difficult to
understand as truth. This is faith, believing in that which is difficult to understand. God wants you to understand him but you refuse to accept the
building blocks of the book that he provided.
Until you stop judging the bible and start listening to what it says you will not find the truth in its pages. He has given you all the tools you
need and explained the difficult to understand things simply. Even though I don't completely understand the two points, and many more, I accept them
as truth. Once I was able to accept them then the rest of the message became clear.
