Looks like you're disobeying your god's instructions.

Perhaps it's because you know his orders are evil.

Yeah, that guy your god had killed for picking up sticks sure was cruel. I guess the 70,000 Israelites killed by your god because he was miffed about a census were also cruel.

I nearly forgot about the millions of children and babies your god has killed. Man, they sure were cruel.

E.g, God killed many egyptians for trying to capture back and enslave the Hebrews. God lead the hebrews to overtake kingdoms which were not kingdoms of God and kingdom's God probably wanted for his people to live joyfully.
That'll be the thousands of innocent people your god killed because he "hardened Pharaoh's heart". Your dumb god did this on a number of occasions. If he hadn't have done that, the Hebrews would have been released a lot sooner.

The trouble with your god is that he just loves to torture and kill and that makes him evil.

Pharaoh would never have tried to capture back the Hebrews if your god had left him alone..

"And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand."

It's a sick and twisted religion these people have.

After all, no country is entirely evil and even in the worst societies there are plenty of good people.

It's a simple fact but one that appears to elude that dumb bible god.

Really? Because it appears to me that human nature did not change one iota after your imaginary flood. Assuming that there were a flood as described, in spite of the complete lack of evidence, and the impossibility that so much water could magically appear and later disappear, there's absolutely no evidence that such an event worked any change in human behavior.

Let's take it a bit further. If Noah and his family were all good, as you contend, and all the bad people were killed off, why would your benevolent god not use that as an opportunity to simply forgive the 'original sin' and move on. It would seem to make the whole narrative of needing to create and then sacrifice a son completely unnecessary.

In the absence of proof that the flood effected a change in human behavior, it is a story about your god gratuitously killing many people in a fit of temper.

Can you please give me the full the story of all those verses instead of picking out one verse.
E.g It's like you reading a sentence in a book saying "kill them" and saying the knights are the bad guys in the book because of one sentence and not checking reason.
And i'm not stalling, I'm debating.
Also, just saying, God does bad things for good reasons. So yes, God does do bad, but good always comes out with it.
I gave you the citations, chapter and verse. If you thought that antecedent verses provided some justification, you could have looked them up and quoted the mitigating passages. You did not. You cannot, because such mitigating verses do not exist in the real bible, only in your fantasy version, where all the bad bits are magically excised or turned into harmless pranks. I suppose it helps create that fantasy that you've apparently never read the actual bible. If you had, you would know that the offense most of the vanquished and slaughtered people committed was that they lived on land the Jews wanted. Much like the Palestinians of modern times.

If only you knew of an all powerful deity that could improve behaviour without genocide.

PS Your example proves you are a hateful psycho.
