Yes, it does. Why? As I’ve said many times before, ALL monotheist religions have this problem. And since you are an Atheist, Registered and Certfied, I don’t think you are in a position to appreciate this.
Let’s just say, Abrahamic religions were not constructed with disciplined theological consistency in mind. One part of the Old Testament clearly shows that the sins of the Father are visited upon the Children. And then another part clearly says that the sins of the Father shall NOT be visited upon the Children. Well? Which is it?
Many times I have pointed to the hardening of the Pharaoh’s heart; it is a powerful lesson, because it is discussed in Exodus … and it is discussed by Paul in Romans 9! And no matter how you look at it, whether you are a creationist or not, it’s just something you have to Live With:
 Pharaoh is just about to agree to Moses’ terms - - Hallelujah!
 But just in the nick of time, God stops him! - - Wha?
 He makes Pharaoh’s heart hard, so that he says NO! one last time. - - Uh oh
And why does God do this Wonderful <awful?> thing? So that God can show how powerful he is!
 God wipes out all of Egypt’s first born
(slaves, masters, royalty, peasants, and all the animals too!). - - Come on! No. He. didn’t!?
 Oh yes… he did. What’s more, he got the same sacrifice that Moloch would have insisted upon!
Did Moloch get the idea of taking the first born from Yahweh? - - Ugh… let’s change the subject.
