Kill All the Children – I Fail to Understand the Cruelty


Exodus 12:29-30

{12:29} And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that [was] in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
{12:30} And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for [there was] not a house where [there was] not one dead.

Malevolent deity, or self-loathing author?


I am a moral being. I value life.
