If you found out that God commands humanity to wipe itself out, would you start killing everyone you could?

. . .

I'll even grant you a solid assumption that God has never communicated this to any human being up to this point. What's your answer?


I didn't want to let this hang any longer, though I'm not sure I'm actually ready to answer it. You're asking me to dig a little deeper into these questions than I have, which is good (for me at least).

I still can't decide what I'd do. The right thing to do would be to load my shotgun. Whether I could actually bring myself to start killing people is another question.

So to be clear, given my presuppositions, obeying God's commands is the moral thing to do.
