Capital Crime: Picking Up Sticks – I Fail to Understand the Cruelty


Numbers 15:32-36

{15:32} And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.
{15:33} And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.
{15:34} And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.
{15:35} And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.
{15:36} And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Malevolent deity, or self-loathing author?


I am a moral being. I value life.
