This is what the Lord says: 'About midnight I will go throughout Egypt. Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the slave girl, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well. There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt—worse than there has ever been or ever will be again.'
(Guess the Lord killed a lot of children in only one night.)
I was curious what you think about this "event" ? I remember I heard this when I was a cute little kid and didn't understand much of the world. I heard it a lot more times later on since I went to a catholic private school for 8 years, but I could never agree with it nor could I understand how someone would want to follow a god who killed innocent children.
I do understand that it had a purpose, call it a "greater good", but I can't bring myself to support the killing of firstborns, who had nothing to do with the situation itself.
How was it for you, when you first read that part of the bible? Could you just accept it? Did I get something wrong? What are your thoughts on this?
