Canaanite Genocide

Posted: November 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

Last Wednesday night I attempted to give some guidance on how to think through the ethical and theological implications of God commanding his people to go into the land of Canaan and take over, destroying all of the inhabitants. This is an issue that the new atheists and many skeptics will bring to light in arguing that if God is real, He is not good. I think, as I argued, that there are answers to these questions that are fair and legitimate and that flow out of a biblical worldview with biblical assumptions about God and mankind. You can check out what I said in the “Resources” tab under “Collide 180” or you can check out a discussion here by some of the faculty at Dallas Theological Seminary on the topic. It is 40 minutes long but you can skim through the topics discussed and go straight to them if you’re interested. Check it out at: http://www.dts.edu/thetable/play/genocide-old-testament-chapel/
