Why is god slaying the sons of Egypt for the sins of their fathers considered just?

I thought people were solely responsible for their own sins.

    It is one of the most heinous acts ever committed in any mythology - slaughtering all the newborn males for the "sins" of one man.

    They are. But Jehovah had to apply sufficient persuasion to Pharaoh to get him to let the Israelites go. Would you rather that the Lord have destroyed all of Egypt? That would have been overkill -- literally.

    And no, the Lord did not harden Pharaoh's heart. The Inspired Version of the Bible shows that Pharaoh hardened his own heart, which one would expect from someone who was raised to believe he was a god.

  • You have it backwards. Not every Allie in WW II was good and not every Nazi was evil. But Nazism was evil and the Allies liberated from that. You get stuck with the people you stand with. Call it unfair but it is that way in all of life.If a flood hits your town it hits good and bad

    and there is the fact that what is good for one might be bad for another.

    As the Creator of life, God alone has the authority to take life.

    Your question is sort of like asking if you baked a cake, and for whatever reason, threw it in the trash, were you being unjust?

    For the same reason it's just for us to take reparations from the white man today.

    The son enjoyed the wealth of his father's crimes.
