Quote# 2724

He [Pharaoh] could have prevented the death of the egyptian children at any time, but his pride was like stone, and he wouldn't give in. You all really need to get away from this 'lets make God like us' arguments. Report God to child abuse services? W[hat]t[he]h[ell], this is God, not your next door neighbor. You can't base his actions on human understanding and societal standards, it won't work!

Ummmm, so what was all that shit about 'God' hardening his heart. Pharaoh was gonig to let them go quite happily according to your stupid fairy tale on several occasions, but each time 'God' hardened his heart.

He also did it to Sihon, King of the Amorites, because apparently he's a bloodthirsty cunt!

Mr Wolf

Exodus 10:20 (New International Version)

"20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let the Israelites go."

God threatened to kill the first borns if Pharaoh didn't release the Hebrews, but he also deliberately made Pharaoh not release the Hebrews so then he went and killed a bunch of innocent children... Why the fuck would i want to worship this God?

"He [Pharaoh] could have prevented the death of the egyptian children at any time"

Since this 'event' never happened, no he couldn't.

You're conveniently forgetting the part about God hardening his heart so that he could make an example of them.

Yeah, except that the Exodus never actually happened in history. Or I should say, there is zero proof other than the book of mythology.

Your god is like a blood-sucking demon god...
Just out of curiosity, does He kick back with the Old Ones on the weekend? Nah, He probably chills with the Aztec Gods...

Ummm. NO. Your god set Pharaoh up, just like he set up Lucifer AND Judas. He hardened Pharaoh's heart. If your god is so "omnipotent", and he knew all this was going to happen, he could of stopped it. But he didn't, did he? Just to further some 'save a chosen few to kiss my ass' agenda, otherwise known as the "greater good" (ooohhhh! how I HATE that phrase!) I am SO glad I got out of that cult when I entered college and learned about Paganism.

Another myth for the terminally stupid.

Exodus is a forgery dumbass.

So if God came down and murdered your whole family, you'd just accept it because he's God and can do whatever he wants?

I hate to break this to you, but Exodus is bullshit.

The story insists they must go through tribulation(s) God ONLY FUCKING DEMANDS hard times before, in process and after for Moses' ever fickle people.

Except that God was explicitly stated to have hardened Pharoah's heart, making his refusal an extension of God's word. Otherwise He could have just revealed Himself to the Pharoah directly, made him a loyal servant instead of Moses, got shit done efficiently. But no, the choice was an illusion and the entire act was all according to the script of a self-obsessed playwright that wants you to blame the characters themselves for their hopeless situation and poorly written personalities.

And if the Pharoah had disobeyed God's word and freed the chosen people immediately, averting the plagues or even embracing God himself what then? Was he good or wicked for defying God to aid His cause and spare all of Egypt considerable suffering?
