Joshua 6:21; Deuteronomy 2:34; 3:6 OTBDC: How can God, holy, righteous, of love, all-powerful be justified in the destruction of cities and the killing of men, women, and young children?

The historical record reveals that the men, women, children, old and young of the Canaanite cities captured by the Israelites were to be reduced to complete destruction. (Num. 21:1-3, 34, 35; Josh 6:20-21; 8:21-27; 10:26-40; 11:10-14) This has rightly brought about concern from Christians that the Hebrew Old Testament seems to be inundated with a sense of cruelty and senseless slaughter.

God, Guns, & the Bible

Should Christians Own a Gun? The act of self defense in association with the use of a gun is a topic that remains highly controversial amongst society - especially Christians.

GENESIS 2:4 OTBDC: “God” is used in Genesis chapter 1, while chapter 2 changes to Jehovah God. Does this mean that there are two different authors of Genesis?

On the other hand, any verse that contains the Tetragrammaton (Jehovah, Yahweh), God’s personal name, is attributed to yet another writer, “J” (“Jawist”).
