Question for Christians and Muslims, how do you reconcile God being good with the atrocities that he committed/commits in your sacred text?

-Noah's Flood (global genocide)
-Killing of the firstborn of Egypt to make pharaoh let the Hebrews free (while letting Ramses live)
-Ordering Joshua to slaughter the Canaanites and take their women as slaves
-Burning all who don't believe in Hell for eternity

  • That's easy, there's God and there's the Devil. Good and Evil. Firstly for God death it's not the end, Humans believe it's the end & that death is bad and nothing after.

    SOO God it's our Father & as every good Father He wants as happy & safe & We as kids like to disobey and do stuff our way cause We want to or think it's better. & as every good Father He needs to give us lessons so we can learn & sometimes You need to scold Your child for something they done wrong, not just because they don't something You didn't allow them or didn't want them to do but because You fear for them, for they well being and so they won't do it again.

    BUT all the text You put wrote it down is from the Old Testament, there was one rule -> Eye for an eye. & than there was no Jesus, so every sin that the christians did they had to make an offering, sacrifice of blood to wash away there sins, blood as in taking away a life from a lamb that was so the people knew that sins are dangerous and they cost a lot = a life.
    For Noah the times were bad & the people sinned & didn't give a fuck about other people so God punished them ( but first He always warns the people)
    For Egypt God told Farrow that it was time He free the Hebrews & God warned Farrow of the consequences of not doing so. But Farrow did everything to not let them go. Every time God punished Egypt He would give a chance for Farrow to free the Hebrews but Farrow was stubborn sooo it ended how it ended. Almost same thing was with the Cannanites they sinned God would scold them so to show His power & who is God He used Joshua.
    Conclusion: MAn kind aaaaalways but aaaalways turned away from God. People are pour they all crie to God, God helps them the time passes & the people forget about what He did & go their ways. God could say " Fuck them all let Satan have them I'm out" But noo, He sends He's ONLY son to suffer paying for our sins so We ALL could be saved.

    NOW for the hell part? God's not burning anyone anywhere, that's why God DEMANDED for every christian to spread the gospel. Hell is the kingdom of Satan, Satan hates us for being the "apple of the eye of God" & other family drama.

    The rule is: You walk with God, God can protect You. You don't give a fuck about God? because of Your free will God can't interfere in Your life so You're like fresh meat for the Devil. & He'll be soo happy to burn You for eternity cause well what's the best way to hurt someone? Hurting the ones they love the most, Us.

    1#Killing of the firstborn of Egypt

    First, the Egyptians were far from innocent. Pharaoh had murdered all of the infant Hebrew boys by drowning them in the Nile River (Ex. 1:22). Egypt had grown rich by enslaving the Jewish people for 400 years (Gen. 15:13). While Pharaoh carried out this plot, the Egyptian people benefited from his decision to enslave the Jews. Now, the Egyptian people were being held culpable for standing idly by, while this was happening. God had promised to curse those who cursed Israel (Gen. 12:3). If God did not act, he would have been reneging on his promise to Abraham.

    Second, while Pharaoh killed every Hebrew infant boy, God only judged the firstborn of Egypt. God’s judgment was mild in comparison to Pharaoh’s judgment. Moreover, the text never states that Pharaoh’s edict (to kill the Hebrew infants) was ever rescinded. It’s possible that the Pharaoh was currently killing the Hebrew boys at the time of the plagues.

    Third, some Egyptians escaped from judgment with the Hebrews. Exodus 9:20-21 demonstrates that some of Pharaoh’s own advisors were spared from judgment, during the plague of hail. Exodus 12:38 states that a “mixed multitude” of people escaped Pharaoh along with the Israelites. If these escaping Egyptian households were struck, it isn’t likely that they would flee along with the Israelites. Moreover, even the instructions for the Passover meal mentions the “alien,” who decides to participate in the Passover supper (Ex. 12:19). Therefore, when the text says that “all” of the Egyptian households were struck with a plague (Ex. 12:29), this no doubt refers to those unbelieving households.

    it is helpful to remember that the tenth plague is not the first plague. That is, no matter how we understand the events of the tenth plague, it is critical to remember that God did not start with this plague of death, but rather, this plague followed nine specific warnings and clear demonstrations of power.

    God did not just send Moses to Pharaoh and without any warning, have the firstborn sons of Egypt struck dead. No, there was a whole series of events that led up to this terrible disaster in Egypt.

      Furthermore, it should also be noted that the tenth plague was not God’s idea, nor was it the idea of Moses. The destruction of the firstborn sons of Egypt was something that the previous Pharaoh had visited upon the people of Israel 80 years earlier when the Egyptian army killed all the newborn sons of Israel two years old and younger by drowning them in the Nile or by the sword (Exodus 1:16). This is an example of sin cannibalizing itself, so that the sins of the fathers fall upon later generations.

      But beyond even this, after the ninth plague, Pharaoh told Moses that if Moses came before him again Pharaoh would kill him (Exodus 10:28). In a way, then, it was Pharaoh who had given the ultimatum of “win or die.” Pharaoh had lost every confrontation against the God of Israel, and so now Pharaoh decreed that the contest was over and even though he had lost, he would still not let God’s people go. The only way forward, then, was to finally and ultimately break Pharaoh’s pride.

      He could do all that sure but it would defeat the purpose and it would defeat the reason of having faith.

      It would not defeat the purpose of dispensing justice and there is no reason to have faith. Faith means believing things with no evidence; it's not a virtue nor is it justice to send those who have no faith to hell. Justice is having a punishment of the same magnitude of the transgression. You said that god is just even though he sent people to hell because he laid out his rules and said that if you don't accept me than you chose hell (the fallacious "god doesn't send you to hell, you send yourself to hell" argument) and that he is just because the people made the choice to reject him. But you could also argue that those who wound up in the prison camps in North Korea sent themselves their for speaking out against the Dear Leader Kim Jong Un.

  • God made us in his image. We all have some evil in us. God made rainbows as a sign that he will never flood the Earth again. Even he recognized that in reality he did kill innocents too.
    I'm a little evil, so I understand if God was too.

  • Humans were created by a star god, not PRIME CREATOR. Thought our current star god Lucifer passes himself of as such in his texts the bible, torah, koran
