WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NATIONS THAT THE YISRAELITES DIDNT WIPEOUT LIKE YAHUAH ORDERED THEM TO? THEY ARE SOMEWHERE STILL AROUND.

Charlie Frank. I agree, but if you think that 's bad consider verses 16-17 which advocate outright genocide. Deuteronomy 20:16 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: When the Germans attempted this last century the word they used was 'Lebensraum ' - Living space for Germans instead of Jews, the difference being that the Jews very sensibly declined to execute this 'divine ' command. In principle however the intention is identical. The moral problem with christians interpreting Jewish scripture however is that many of the former also accept the authority divine revelation. So when Hitler excused himself by claiming that he was only doing God 's work, such christians are in a poor position to refute him! Especially when we also consider 1 Thessalonians 2:14,15 . . . the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: After some 2000 years of this kind of defamation is it any wonder that eventually somebody decided to take matters into their own hands with or without God 's explicit permission?

my feeling is that God demonstrate a great deal of power and authority over enemies of His people. He reduces the warriors by accommodating all excuses that people will ordinary put forward as destructing them in their course of duty. he wants nothing but the best and free hearted of warriors. This apply to us in the sense that if we are chosen by Him, He will be by our side in the wake of the great attack by enemy. He never panics and weights the number warriors against the enemy but free spirited hearts against the enemy. In short if He is in charge I must let go completely of my worries.

God is truly our only source.

Charlie Frank. I think we need to consider this in terms of the Israelis only as they are directed to secure the promise land. these directives help us too , figuratively speaking as we battle for our own promise land . further more, God has instructed his people on the way to treat slaves, strangers , and members of households.

verse 14 if they go in to this city and kill all the men and take the women and children for themselves don t that make them like the egyptions that persecuted them and held them captive can someone give an explination on how this makes them any different
