    He didn't like the political leaders of Egypt and that's what caused his brutal infanticide the 1st time, let's say he came back now and didn't like Obama or the leader of some other country and murdered everyone's first born.


    Would you still love and worship him?



    (Disclaimer: I don't believe in God or that this actually took place, but am assuming so for the sake of argument)

    For the sake of what argument in particular? What's your goal in this thread?

    He did not like that Egyptians were worshiping false gods (all Egyptians),not just the leaders.
    God gave signs to show that he was the only true God and they refused to believe and would not release his people. They were warned and still they did not believe, so he killed the first born, but told his people how to protect theirs.
    If you love and believe in God, he would never do this to believers.
    Obama is a Christian.
    God's people are free now with their own state. So this would never happen now days.

    So the people of an area should be punished for the religious views of their political leader?

    That's a pretty disgusting justification.

    I like questioning norms and assumptions of our culture, do you have an answer?

    We're all on a message board, we could all be doing something more constructive.

    What about the whole 'god hardened pharaoh's heart' so he would not let them go? That's always sounded to me like pharaoh believed, and god changed his mind.

    Of course, this whole thread is silly, the OP question ridiculous, so I wouldn't take it amiss if you decline to respond :)

    Ok, so correct me if I'm wrong.

    If God came back today, and killed 75% of the populations first borns (aka all the non-christian's first borns) you would still love and worship him just the same?
