Egypt at the time was perhaps the only world super power. It a modern army that could take on any nation. But this empire was built on idol worship and God hated it.Do christians actually read the bible?
Exodus 4:21 And the Lord said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.
22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:
23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.
I have been going over and over this and it just does not make any sense! God sends Moses to Egypt to free the slaves and he tells Moses to tell pharaoh to let his people go. All the while, god is making it so that pharaoh will not let the people go!!!
Imagine a father telling the mother, not to allow their children to go outside. When the children go to the father to ask, he sends them to ask the mother. When the mother, following the fathers orders, refuses to let the children go outside, the father beats the mother for not allowing them to go outside! 10 times this happens, 10 beatings, before the wife finally ignores the husband's orders and lets the children go outside!
Are you people crazy or what!?!?
God accomplished two task with Egypt. One was to free the slaves and second to break its back. And so Egypt was broken and it never recovered to its former glory. Today it is a third world country.
Do Atheist ever read the bible? If you did you would understand. May I use your own words?“Are you people crazy or what?”
I wouldn’t call you crazy for lack of knowledge but just willfully naive.
