Wrong on so many levels.  I mean, there's the ethical thing, which doesn't really need to be pointed out.

But if God wanted to kill the guys, would He really need to wait til He was asked?

Yea didn't the dude ever hear of "Judge not, lest ye be judged"?

A god that has to wait to kill people isn't a god worth worshipping in my book. Cheesy

He doesn't have to wait, sometimes he just really hates someone and needs to deal with it, but other times, he chooses to be polite about it.  Makes his followers feel better.  Proves he answers prayers and that sort of thing.

Thus demonstrating clearly that some fundie ministers have apparently secretly had Satan substituted for Jesus in their beliefs. Sad

One of my dear friends often says, "There are more satan worshippers in some of the fundamentalist churches than anywhere else."

Her reason for saying this is due to the fact that it has been her experience that many Fundies can go on and on about the Powers of Satan and cannot quote ANYTHING connected to Jesus, His life, or Teachings--- thus they are actually giving all powers to Satan and worshipping him.

That's the thing that's always gotten me about the story of the Israelites.
I mean think about it .....

From God's POV, it would be much simpler to just *snap* they're gone, you're there; than to explain the plan to this guy standing out in the desert and then go through all the theatrics of the pillar of fire, parting the sea, etc.

That doesn't bother me so much.  Besides, what better way to get people used to the idea of doing what you say than to get them walking through a big wasteland? Smiley

And really, what mother hasn't stood over her child as they cleaned their rooms, when it would be so much easier to clean it themselves.  But the child needs to learn.
