    Oh, you are right, I did ask that question. I didn't intend it as a personal accusation against you. you are correct I don't know you. However, most people, if being honest, are aware that they they are not immune from self-centered thoughts or behavior.

    For one thing, the scriptures repeatedly state that God is fair, merciful, righteous, holy, good, loving, compassionate, and patient so in light of His character any killing would have to line up with these qualities and perfect justice. Secondly, the scriptures never indicate that God plan is eliminating evil from this present world.

    I'd say that the God who created heaven and earth is the One who defines "good and moral", not you, me, or any finite human and this God knows how to offer salvation to any who fall short of His perfect goodness and morality throughout human history wherever they may have been at in their understanding and knowledge.

    Are you saying you never have a selfish thought or ever behave in any self-centered way?

    Most people in the world have knowledge of the Abrahamic God.

    Why do you presume they have no knowledge? If they truly have no knowledge they cannot even testify they have no knowledge.

    So God says that he is holy, good, king, loving, compassionate and patient.. and he's not going to eliminate evil but he will administer perfect justice to you.

    What church do you attend?

    Does it matter? Clearly he believes in the Abrahamic God.

    What is selfish? Wanting only the best for my kids or wanting to eat something nice?

    No need for selfish thoughts, just get on with life
