Is it moral to kill when a cure options is available?
It is said that God can do whatever he likes. He is after all, God. He created everything and can destroy it at a whim if he chooses to do so. I do not believe this but will grant it as a truth for this O P.
Given that God can kill or cure, and given that we are to emulate, follow and try to be like him; it would seem that we too are to believe that sometimes it is better to kill than cure. I cannot think of any good situation to do this but that is just me. Perhaps you can.
Scriptures show God killing many or having men kill many. Scriptures show God curing on a few occasions but killing seems to be his preferred method.
Life, be it from God or nature, should be venerated. God does not seem to venerate human life even as he claims man to be his most precious and loved creation and even placing us above the angels. This indicates that he should venerate our lives yet it does not seem to.
In our human world, if a doctor who could cure his patient decided to kill him, he would be jailed and considered an evil person. In the believer world, a God who could cure and decides to kill is considered good and praised for his killing. A double standard. I hope that we will all agree that for a human to kill, when a cure option is available, is evil and immoral. If you do not; please do not reply.

Does your God need to have good morals or does it matter?
You've thrown this OP onto at least three other boards and I don't see that it sparked much debate. Didn't really get into the issue of kill or cure.
If you're looking for something to counter the believer claim that God can do whatever he wants because he's God, then you need a better OP. Especially since you already granted it as truth for the sake of this topic.
Scripture comes in handy when supporting claims concerning God.
As written, I don't see this as good discussion material.
