Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt.
And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more. - Gen. 11:4-6
For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. - Gen. 12:12
These verses show that the mass murder of innocents, children and animals too, by God is premeditated by God.
And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. - Gen. 12:29-30
These verses show that the mass murder of innocents, children and animals too, by God is not only premeditated by God but also executed by God. Yet, "God is love".
Interestingly, there's a huge internal contradiction within that part of the story as well:
God tells the Israelites to smear some blood on their doors. That way, when God, full of love no doubt, is going around doing his killing of innocent children, animals and soforth, he'll remember not to kill anything Israelite too.
The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. -- the bible
