Isn’t God the world’s greatest mass murderer?

Then the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies! Isaiah 37:36
            185,000 people is a lot of people.  Today, it’s the entire city of Knoxville Tennessee.  Yes, God killed a lot of people but he’s not to be put into the category of mass murderer.  A mass murderer kills for his own reasons, selfish and disturbed.  God kills for a good reason, his purpose, so others will know he is God.  God saves lives when he judges armies and nations.  He’s God and he created life so he has the right to remove life also.  His purposes are good, not selfish.
