To some people, there are no Innocents, only ‘Guiltys’ worthy of Death for having been Born

(((And no, I’m not going to link to his blog. Its not cowardice as has been charged. The idea presented is more important than the person who presented it. That and he says constantly that he doesn’t and won’t read here anyway. -kia)))

Very interesting proposition

“If one searches the Scriptures they will find no examples of God killing innocent people. In fact, compared to God’s holiness, there is no such thing as an innocent person at all. As the Bible says, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), and the wages of sin are death (Romans 6:23a).” -Another Amateur Internet Apologist 

James, would you consider the newborn baby in 2 Samuel 12 to have been guilty of sin and thus worthy of God’s judgement in torturing it for seven days before killing it shortly after birth?

“And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord . And Nathan said unto David, The Lord also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.  Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.” 2Samuel 12:13‭-‬14 KJV

Please tell us how the Just action was to Forgive without penalty or atonement David, the rapist of Bathsheba, and adulterous killer of Uriah, and yet kill the newborn child. 

“And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:  All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.  And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.” Genesis 7:21‭-‬23 KJV

“All flesh”, I guess that would include all the animals that didn’t make it in the Ark (which are sinless even by Christian theology), all the children and babies under the ‘age of accountability’. 

“And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.  And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.”Exodus 12:29‭-‬30 KJV

And I suppose all the children and beasts (animals) of Egypt were guilty of grave sin just for having been firstborn? 

No examples of God killing the Innocent in the entire Bible? Puhlese! Either you are not reading your Bible or you are redefining the definition of guilt and innocence. James, you’re kidding yourself and lying to your readers. The God of the Bible kills anyone, anytime, for anything He chooses at that particular moment or juncture to kill. Anytime, for any reason. 

It’s a very good thing He’s a fictional character in a Horror story called the Bible. But it’s not True, it’s not Reality. It’s just more Astounding Bulls#!t from the Bible and those who defend this monster described in its pages.

  1. Yes the sin of being born. In any case even if people are guilty, what is a fit punishment for the crime?

    Folk like James are so brainwashed they are not able to take off their God glasses to ask if it makes any sense. This clip from the 1983 movie Wargames is poignant to the situation:

  2. So, by reducing God to your little level of thinking, you truly believe that you are justified in your wrong, naïve and simplistic thinking 🙂

  3. If perfect “love” can include killing children for the crime of being born, then “love” has become such a meaningless term that it would best not be used at all. No, if there is any sense in claiming that God is “love”, then at the very least, “it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” (Matthew 18:14) How sad it would be if a good human father knew better than to give a scorpion to a child who asked for bread, but the God of “love” could muster no more compassionate a stance towards real children.
    The story of David’s first child with bathsheba is reason #2771 why good Christians shouldn’t read the Bible without their minds (and hearts) switched on.
