Spoiled Brat of the Divine II

How long did it take for God to lose control of His divine wrath, or to be sadistic and plain mean?

The Book of Exodus

The Book of Exodus is truly horrible. God regularly kills, maims, destroys, or instructs others to do so. He lies, tricks, and purposely MAKES people to do things that are not in their best when God purposely hardens Pharaoh's heart. God has zero control over His anger or over His apparent desire to do some pretty fucked up shit.

In this post I really did not pick videos that were specific to each verse. I was simply so disgusted with Exodus that I picked videos that discuss God's many shortcomings and ridiculously absurd behavior and instructions. Enjoy these verses from the Book of Exodus that portray God's complete and total unworthiness to be worshiped by anyone.

Exodus 3:20 "So I will stretch out my hand and strike the Egyptians with all the wonders that I will perform among them. After that, he will let you go."

Exodus 3:21 "And I will make the Egyptians favorably disposed toward this people, so that when you leave you will not go empty-handed."

Exodus 3:22 "Every woman is to ask her neighbor and any woman living in her house for articles of silver and gold and for clothing, which you will put on your sons and daughters. And so you will plunder the Egyptians."

Exodus 4:14 "Then the LORD's anger burned against Moses and he said, What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you."

Exodus 4:21 "When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go."
Exodus 4:23 "...and I told you, Let my son go, so he may worship me. But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son."

Exodus 4:24 "At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met Moses and was about to kill him."

Exodus 5:22 "Moses returned to the LORD and said, Why, Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Is this why you sent me?"
Exodus 9:6, 9 "And the next day the LORD did it: All the livestock of the Egyptians died, but not one animal belonging to the Israelites died."
     "It will become fine dust over the whole land of Egypt, and festering boils will break out on people and animals throughout the land."

Exodus 9:19 "Give an order now to bring your livestock and everything you have in the field to a place of shelter, because the hail will fall on every person and animal that has not been brought in and is still out in the field, and they will die.'"

Exodus 11:10 "Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let the Israelites go out of his country."

Exodus 22:24 "My anger will be aroused, and I will kill you with the sword; your wives will become widows and your children fatherless."

Exodus 31:14 "'Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it is to be put to death; those who do any work on that day must be cut off from their people."

Exodus 32:10 "Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation."
