Reread my post carefully to see that your opening statement is erroneous. Perhaps your mind was befuddled when you made it.<quoted text>
Well then, the Nazis were the "flood of choice" in 1940 then weren't they. Just as innocently mindless as the butchers of the Midianites, all in the cause of God's mysterious ways, right?
You miss another point. Moses claimed God was instructing him. Mohammed made similar claims for his butchery. But the point is, imagine YOU are a Jewish soldier or a committed Nazi or a Maoist and your inspired leader tells you that killing little boys is necessary. Ever seen the sickening footage of Milosovic's men taking 8000 young boys out to be shot? They too believed they were acting for the glory of a greater good.
A man CANNOT commit acts of butchery against young innocents for ANY reason and be acting for the good. I would hope that if you thought GOD himself had commended you to kill an "evil little boy", that you would exercise your God given right to refuse God!
And you would know that I am right, except your brain is befuddled with the same cloudy dogmatism that forces you to try and justify evil acts.
I notice you carefully, if not skillfully, avoided declaring that any except the Jews of Moses' day acted directly on God's orders. In fact, you even tried to obscure the case of the Jews. Why is that do you think? You too seem to overlook the resurrection in formulating your reasoning. I note that is another thing you didn't mention. How can you expect to arrive at a proper conclusion without considering all the related factor?
Provide Mohammed's claims (quote him) if you think it was the same as Moses.
Following inspired leaders in contradiction of God's standing instructions is bad policy (Jim Jones, David Koresh, etc.).
