    They were brought up worshiping dungy (disgusting) idols, and viewing them as their gods - their prime dependency, those they give their allegiance. Guilty.

    Do you think these children are innocent?
    Child suicide bombers in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict - Wikipedia
    According to Amnesty International, "Palestinian armed groups have repeatedly shown total disregard for the most fundamental human rights, notably the right to life, by deliberately targeting Israeli civilians and by using Palestinian children in armed attacks. Children are susceptible to recruitment by manipulation or may be driven to join armed groups for a variety of reasons, including a desire to avenge relatives or friends killed by the Israeli army."

    Why not read the words of this boy to his mother. Watch his video.
    Jordanian boy pledges to be martyred for Jerusalem in viral video.

    Perhaps you can give your answer to the targets stabbed, shot, and blown to bits, as well as those threatened.
    Really, who are the innocents?

    So? Is Jehovah so threatened by "other gods" that even those who have done no wrong, those who are truly the most vulnerable among us, even they are eligible for his writs of summary execution?
    That is called goal shifting, and I find such tragedies to be the failures of their culture.

    Apparently you do not know the Bible very well. Please read Ephesians Chapter 2, and Chapter 4 verses 17-24 (Ephesians 2; 4:17-24)

    Skeptics are always crying foul, whenever anyone uses an example to drive home the nail in the coffin.
    The point is, children who are raised or trained to give their allegiance to a sovereign - whom or whatever that may be, will usually be loyally committed to its cause, as evidence shows.
    Some are loyally committed to life long vengeance.

    Moreover, if they do not know what is the right course, they ignorantly believe that their cause is good, and they are completely committed.

    Seems you are making a distracting attempt at deflection.
    Failure of culture is/was not foreign or elusive to the Egyptians.

    Yahweh/Jehovah says he is jealous.

    Yes.
    You can consider this article to see how the Hebrew and Greek words are applied.
    *** it-1 p. 1258 Jealous, Jealousy ***
    According to Biblical usage, “jealousy” may be a positive or a negative quality or emotion. (Proverbs 14:30; Zechariah 1:14) The Hebrew noun qin·ʼahʹ variously means “insistence on exclusive devotion; toleration of no rivalry; zeal; and or; jealousy [righteous or sinful]; envying.” The Greek zeʹlos has a similar meaning.— 2 Corinthians 11:2; 12:20.

    Jehovah’s Jealousy
    Jehovah describes himself as “a God exacting exclusive devotion.” (Exodus 20:5, ftn; Deuteronomy 4:24; 5:9; 6:15) He also says: “Jehovah, whose name is Jealous, he is a jealous God.” (Exodus 34:14) Over what and with what kind of jealousy? Not with the envious, selfish jealousy of humans. It is a jealousy, a zeal or ardor for his holy name, concerning which he himself says: “I will show exclusive devotion for my holy name.”Ezekiel 39:25.

    We must remember that the Hebrew and Greek words were in use before our modern English. So where we have the tendency to limit their usage, that was not the case in ancient times.

    Children are not responsible for being enslaved as child soldiers, no. They do not fully understand what is occurring and it's being coerced.

    And instead of doing something to save them, god had them killed anyways. Which he does time and time again, like an impatient monarch itching to declare "off with their heads." Fortunately, we have gained far greater moral and ethical insights since the Bible was written, and we have declared having people summarily executed is a crime.
    And just because I disagree and label god's judgements as cruel, wicked, and unholy doesn't mean I'm unaware of what his "word" says.

    I don't think I said anything to the contrary. Did I?
    Does that mean they are innocent? What does it mean to be innocent?

    There you go again... claiming to know the facts when you were not there and have no idea what took place, even though it is written.
    I am going by what you claim - indeed it is clearly evident from your own words, post after post, that you know very little about what God's word says.
    But We should expect that from one who reads it so critically, and claim God does not exist...

    Why do you claim Jehovah did nothing to save them?
    Jehovah always does something to help save e-ve-ry person... including you.
    Please, read Exodus 1:15-21, Exodus 9:20, 21, and Exodus 12:37, 38) 37 

    This is Jehovah - a God merciful, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness, an truth. A God righteous and just,,, with whom there is no injustice. The scriptures say these things, and it's evident in his acts.
    It's about the heart Shadow Wolf. A bitter heart sees no good in anyone whom they direct hatred toward.
