yell me something about god's law.
after moses dictates the 10 commandments,with one of them being 'thou shall not kill',
why does moses tell the isrealites to kill every one in their way to the promised land?
maybe thats why the palastinians (philistines) are so pissed at isreal!
The Israelites were God's judgment on the Canaanites for over 400 years of idoltry and sinful practices, such as human sacrifice, etc. In fact, the Israelites left Egypt when they did because it was part of God's prophecy to end the Canaanites time of grace. Their "iniquity was not yet full." Genesis 15:16. One of the reasons the Israelites had such strict laws was to keep them from falling into the sinful practices of the Canaanites.
It goes to show that God is not a kindly old man winking at sin. When he says it will bring punishment for sin, he means it. Fortunately, he offers free forgiveness and mercy in Christ, but if people are too stubborn to take it, then they get the wrath of God their sins bring. The moral of the story is, don't waste that time of grace.
The Pharaoh is also a good example of how God works with unbelievers on a small scale. Pharaoh kept hardening his heart against God until finally God said, okay, have it your way then, and made it so Pharaoh's heart remained hard. Typically, unbelievers want to blame God, but again, Pharaoh brought it on himself after repeated, personal warnings.
