If he gives life, what's the problem with him ending it? Is hunting deer to prevent them from suffering a worse fate with over population, murder? Do you really think if there's a god that he's on our same level in the food chain? Probably not.
It's sort of like if you had a bunch of monkeys that you wanted to make like men. If you're breeding them, would you not do some selective breeding at certain points along the line? If a certain group of them were being contrary to your goals for their species, would you not stifle that line?
Where do you get this at? As so far as I have ever read, agreement was never the issue, it was obedience. In that particular instance, there were plenty of signs and lesser plagues given before hand to turn the Pharaoh’s mind. He was too damn stubborn. Again, God gave them their lives and all their riches, and even allowed Israel to serve them, but when it was Israel’s time to go, Pharaoh refused, and refused, and refused. Pharaoh knew that god was god and was real and even knew what god wanted him to do. There was no disagreement in who god was in what he wanted. He just didn’t want to. It also wasn't as if Pharaoh said no the first time and god started killing right away. God went through a fairly long list of signs and plagues, but Pharaoh’s mind was not swayed, his heart was hard. Even so, in the end, there was nothing that God took away, that he didn’t also give them in the first place.The Great Hippo wrote:"Why the fuck is anyone in their right mind defending a creature that kills your children because you disagree with him?"
The important question in my mind is: “Why the fuck would anyone in their right mind talk shit about someone they don’t even know, who quite possibly gave them their very life?” But I guess that’s just my point of view.
