Seems Kind of Bad

It seems kind of bad that God killed Ananias and Sapphira after Jesus' death when Peter was spreading his ministry. He was telling people to sell everything and give it all to his ministry and when this husband and wife kept some of their money rather than give it all to Peter. They were killed by God and fell to the ground dead at Peter's feet.

Of course to tell the whole story they were deceitful about it rather than saying they would not give every penny.

Still....kind of harsh wouldn't you say?

I'm also curious in the Christian sects that promote becoming rich, how they justify not giving a larger percentage of their money to the church than 10%, especially after what happened to Ananias and Sapphira.

We all ought to die, death isn't harsh!

But that has to be seen as a miracle.

After having seen all miracles, one that holds a penny after a command is not keeping the commands, at least he got to be honest.

Not judging them though, God is the judge.
