Eric Seibert describes God as an instant executioner in certain incidents where intermediaries are not used. He considers the instant executions by God as use of excessive lethal force and unwarranted for the offense involved. For instance, why does God kill Judah’s sons, Er and Onan? What about the death of Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu? Why was Uzzah killed for trying to save the ark from falling off the cart?
