Baby Killers

Picture this:

You are a soldier of Samuel's army and God commanded you, "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass."  - 1 Samuel 15:3
Now suppose that you entered the Amalek's site and you see a 3 month old baby being held by her dead mother's arm. You aim your spear to her innocent heart but was moved by your conscience and you didn't kill the baby.

You didn't obey the Lord, that is sin since God commanded you to kill even babies. 

Now, is not killing an innocent infant an immoral act because God commanded you to do so?
