No I don't. Jesus never affirmed that God killed people as Moses did. His affirmation of Moses was in other respects.
That not only is not my entire motivation, but not even my partial motivation. My entire motivation is that some of the things Moses said about the acts of God contradict the character of God as Jesus described it. I don't think one can consistently believe both. I know that this last statement is denied by some on this forum. They affirm that God is pure love but ALSO totally just (by which they mean that He kills people or tortures them because He MUST punish sin). I think that is descriptive of a schizophrenic god. My belief is that any discomfort that God brings upon people is entirely for the purpose of bringing them from a sinful life which harms others as well as themselves, into a joyous and righteous life which brings well-being to others as well as themselves.But basically your entire motivation for rejecting Moses is simply that you don't like what he said.
