Quote# 1119

[Replying to people who don't understand how killing every firstborn infant in Egypt could possibly be justified]

God has justification and I am owed no explanation. Thats the part of humility which Christians must grasp.


All I can say is God does what He does for the 'greater good'.

"It is God's will" is only a satisfatory answer for the brain dead.

Well, that's honest. Belief in the Bible is inane enough but Christians who say they don;t understand Gods myserious ways are easier to take then the ones that say the Noachian flood or the Egyptian slaughter make sense.

Also these people are less likely to go into ridiculous arguments trying to support such insane scenarios

"for the 'greater good'."

You must understand the primitive mind. To the primitive mind, if an enemy kills a member of your family, you kill a member of his family. Vengeance is from group to group. The idea of individual rights and justice simply did not exist in those days. The myth of the "Ten Plagues" was the ancient Hebrews way of getting symbolic revenge against their former captors, the Egyptians. Of course, it never happened, so there is really nothing to explain outside of the motivations of those who created the myth.

Somebody forgot to tell the Egyptians because they never noticed.

Knuckling under a brutal, tyrannical leader isn't humility. It is an act of common fear.

Knuckling under an invisible, insubstantial leader whose very existence must be taken on faith isn't humility or even common fear. It is abject cowardice.

Imagine; "humility" and "Christian" in the same sentence.
