Exodus 9 and 10 has God inflicting all sorts of plagues on the Egyptians. There are locusts and darkness and dark locusts. There’s also weather. That’s right, God uses hail to inflict pain on torment on slaves and livestock. Very merciful of the the merciful God. It’s important to remember for all those Trinitarian Christians out there that Gentle Jesus was there inflicting pain and suffering on the good and bad alike. How’s that for a loving God?
