Why? It sounded like you knew what the Bible said, so I asked.<quoted text>
Two different contexts. Both under the OLD COVENANT where GRACE was not available.
Under Moses' law, a person gathering sticks on the Sabbath was to be put to death.
Sin offerings in blood were made then. Death was a penalty for some transgressions.
In the OT, God demanded the destruction of whole nations including women, children and all the animals. It is one question I will ask when I get there: why.
Yes, they are both OT, and yes, they say opposite things, but I don't see where the context would change the meaning of either.
Neither do you.
In the OT, you claim God/Jesus had no problem killing children, and their children, and their children, up to the fourth generation, all because an original parent sinned.
That's visiting the sin upon the innocent mothers too, like mothers are only an afterthought.
Call it grace, call it whatever you want, that's like worshipping a god with as much compassion as Adolf Hitler.
Thankfully, your psycho god is just as imaginary as the nice gods.
