OK, what about the children of Egypt, God killed every firstborn son, right?
That has been answered for you and your long lost twin brother of a different mother in the past at least twice 
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Well, I'm sure it's buried  somewhere in some 8000 word copy and past job.

As for me, I view it as immoral and unjustified.  Others can rationalize all they want, won't change my view.

You can argue it yourself someday at the throne.

Sad to be so damn smart you are to lazy to read and learn.

But then you are not interested in learning or having a honest exchange. You just want to stir the pot. That is just plain childish on your part.

I read plenty of stuff that I find interesting.

If someone asks a question, I provide a succinct response with my point of view, not some 8000 word tract no one reads.

As for having an honest exchange, well, I'm chuckling.  Post another photo.  It's predictable.

I'll answer it God not only killed the first born son of man but the first born of everything throughout the land of Egypt.  Unless they had the blood of the chosen sacrificial lamb on their door so the angel of death would pass them by. Sound's familiar doesn't it the blood of the chosen sacrificial lamb saving people from death?

Pharaoh had been warned and seen Gods power with nine other plagues but still still refused to obey.  He made a decision to disobey God and paid the price as those who disobey have in the past and will do so in the future

You and others still do not accept the responsibility of your decisions but want to blame God whose word is written in a book telling people what the results of those decisions would be.

You're like a kid playing with matches who keeps getting told he will get burnt but doesn't listen.

At least we all agree that God kills children under the age of 6.

Here is a rather weird tale:

 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two female servants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”
But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”
27 The man asked him, “What is your name?”
“Jacob,” he answered.
28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel,[a] because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”
29 Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.”
But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there.
30 So Jacob called the place Peniel,[b] saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.”
31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel,[c] and he was limping because of his hip.

How silly you count words to whine about.

Even more childish is your demand that people respond how you want. That is  part of why you lash out, it reminds me of a child holding its breath if it does not get its way.

Sad and pathetic.

Judah got a wife for Er, his firstborn, and her name was Tamar. But Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the Lord’s sight; so the Lord put him to death.

Then Judah said to Onan, “Sleep with your brother’s wife and fulfill your duty to her as a brother-in-law to raise up offspring for your brother.” But Onan knew that the child would not be his; so whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. 10 What he did was wicked in the Lord’s sight; so the Lord put him to death also.

I didn't think a Biblical passage should put someone to sleep, but perhaps that is a good response in reality.

I can see why Sunday School more often focused on the New Testament along with selected stories from the Old, like Samson.  I think as I got older, like 12 or so, it was entirely New Testament.  They may have preferred that some select portions of the OT remain unread.

 At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses[a] and was about to kill him. 25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it.[b] “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. 26 So the Lord let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.)
