Question about Moses - Discussion #2

When Moses thought he was Egyptian royalty, he despised the Isrealites. We saw images of Moses beating the Isrealites worse than most would treat animals. When he learned he was actually an Isrealite himself, he saw his old actions and old beliefs with new eyes. He was confused and had to face the knowledge that he was one of the very people he hated to so much.


What does this tell you about hate and racism? How do people get to a place inside themselves where they hate people they have never met based on superficial qualities? What are your thoughts? How was this possible for Moses? How is this possible in our world?


What is God's role in all of this?
