Exodus 5-11

Moses asks the Lord why he ill-treats his people.  It is a very good question that I don’t have an answer for.  Being challenged can certainly make us stronger, more rounded and dynamic individuals but there is no need for ill-treatment.  People have indeed been made in the Lord’s image, and ill-treat other people daily.  Again, I come to that question, to what purpose?

If we are to take this section of the Bible literally, then I’m going to scream inconsistencies again.  If all the Egyptians animals die from disease (Exodus 9:6), how can they then be covered in boils (Exodus 9:10) and then killed by hail (Exodus 9:25).
