I cannot comprehend the lengths some people are willing to go to justify the actions or lack of of their resident deity. I have on numerous occasions heard how destroying the Canaanites or Amalechians was moral and justified course of action.
The endless tirades of God not wanting to interfere with free will and how that is such a valuable thing that it overrides human suffering are just nauseating. Yahweh had no problem meddling with the free will of the Pharaoh but apparently things have changed...
Hi Alias, I would like to hear a clarification regarding the story of Exodus. In that story Yahweh hardened the Pharaohs heart so that he could not see the fleeing Jews. If that is not meddling with free will then I don´t know what is.
Your answer about church using that kinda texts to control the people I just could not understand. It is from the Bible after all.
