Pharoah was responsible for the hardening of his heart. Recommend you study this story a little more in-depth.
Bullshit. The story has god stating several times
that he will harden Pharoah's heart. I made a topic on this a while ago, so I'll just copy and paste from that.
The LORD said to Moses, "When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.
Then say to Pharaoh, 'This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son, and I told you, "Let my son go, so he may worship me." But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.' "
You are to say everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out of his country. But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt, he will not listen to you.
Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites. And the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of it."
Exodus 9:12But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart
and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said to Moses.
Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "I have sinned against the LORD your God and against you. Now forgive my sin once more and pray to the LORD your God to take this deadly plague away from me." Moses then left Pharaoh and prayed to the LORD. And the LORD changed the wind to a very strong west wind, which caught up the locusts and carried them into the Red Sea. Not a locust was left anywhere in Egypt. But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart
, and he would not let the Israelites go.
Exodus 10:27But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart
, and he was not willing to let them go
The LORD had said to Moses, "Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you—so that my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt." 10 Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart,
and he would not let the Israelites go out of his country
Pharaoh will think, 'The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.' And I will harden Pharaoh's heart
, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD." So the Israelites did this.
*(skipped some stuff here)*The LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt
, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly
The story states over and over that god worked his magic on the Pharaoh. How could Pharaoh possibily be responsible for the hardening of his heart? The story is unambiguous about Pharaoh being mind-controled most of the time.
