Cindy, how can you defend a god that ordered the slaying of children? How the slaying of babies EVER be justified? Isn't a fundamental christian beleif thta all children are innocent and this is exactly why abortion is wrong?
Tell me something, if a political leader ordered the deaths of the babies of his enemies, is he good? If say Bush said 'We have the taliban in custody, now we are gonna execute them and especially their children. I have given the US army soldiers orders to kills babies'
Is he good and merciful? Is it just to kill babies for sins they did not commit?
1 Samuel Chapter 15:
2 This is what the LORD Almighty says: `I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt.
3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, suckling children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.'"
compare that with this verse:
16 Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin.
seems like god needs to follow his own advice. So far I see no good argument that God is good. From what I see he is mean, spiteful, wrathful and merciless
He also created evil...did he have to create evil? If he didnt have to create it, then why did he? If he did have to create it, why are we punished for it?
God created evil, the bible says so:
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Until you can justify the slaying of little babies, I wont beleive in your blood-thirsty religion.
