As Christians we are suppose to defend God, the Bible and the Christian movement when faced with criticism.
But I'm sick and tired of defending what I find indefensible in the Bible.
There is no way I'm going to defend the genocide of all those people that the Israelites massacred on their way to the Promised Land.
I DON'T GET IT!!!! Why does God want his people to do his dirty work for him??? All He has to do is to shut up the wombs of his enemies, causes fire and brimstone to fall on them, turn them into pillars of salt, cause them to all die from some incurable disease.
Why? Why did God ask his people to kill women, children and even babies.
Any of you disagree with this - consider this - if you do believe this is true - then You would have no compunction to go out and slaughter your entire neighborhood if YHWH told you to - or go kill your relative's entire family - including his kids because he stole something and disobeyed God. Think about that.
