Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Is God Guilty of Murder?

"No one argues that Mein Kampf is a hateful book full of racist lies but for some reason the Bible is immune to this, especially by its readers. Interestingly both books are big on genocide." Andy Duchemin

The "God kills children" argument is a favorite among atheists, and I concede that there is no disagreement. God killed almost all of the human race through the Noahic flood. This included men, women, children, and no doubt puppies, and cute little kittens (another favorite among atheists). Only those animals and people who entered the ark were saved from the Judgment of God. He also told Joshua to kill every Canaanite man, woman and child. All of them. So if you want to make a moral judgment against God, you do have a case.

But it would be wise to gather even more evidence to make your case against God watertight. The Bible says that God also proclaimed the death sentence on the entire human race--every man, woman and child. This death-sentence included all of the animal kingdom as well.

So there you have it. You now have multiple billions of deaths for which you can directly blame God.

So what are you going to do about it? Should you spread the word that you have evidence that God actually kills people? Or should you just keep quiet, because (as a professing atheist) remember, you are supposed to believe that He doesn’t exist.
