God murder

Recommended Posts

God tells us thou shall not murder , yet in 1 Corinthians 10:8(KJV), he kills 23,000 in one night? 

I though God forgive you when doing a sin , this is a harsh example of God going to rain down on you if you commit fornication, can someone explain ?

Please define to me what the definition of murder is.  This is important to understand why God does what He does and to understand if God broke one of His own commandments (Ex. 20:13), so after you define that for me, I can proceed to answer your question.

The apostle Paul was referencing Numbers 25 where disease women form Moab had infiltrated the camp and were intentionally spreading disease and a false sex cult religion. God had promised to protect the people of Israel if they were obedient to his law and covenant but if they partook in the sins of the people around them and rejected his laws then God said they would also partake in their punishments of sexually transmitted disease that had been placed upon the wicked who practiced fornication as a form of worshiping their false Gods.

Exodus 15:25-26 And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, 26 and said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

We see the same today. While our particular sexually transmitted viruses we have today are not as bad as the one they experienced we still see that those who sleep around will most likely contract and carry many STDs while those who only have one sexual partner, with their union protected by the marriage covenant, will not have any STD. In this we learn that STDs are a punishment from God upon those who reject his word. We are God's creation so he can do whatever he wants with us. In His creation he set certain things in motion to fulfill certain functions (viruses, bacteria, and other very small creatures, etc) but because of the sinful environment man has created these things can mutate and or get into places that they shouldn't be that can harm us. If we do not follow His warnings then He will allow theses things to harm us as a form consequences of our rebellion and freewill.
