Are you American? We did the same to 70 million Indians. This doesn't make me the one that did it, nor does it speak to my life here in this day and
age. Are you European; Serbian; Russian or whatever? Doesn't matter. Your people did horrible things.
Did God order this? The Son of God is Adam, the father of mankind and Adam the Christ. We are all produced from Adam and we are also his forefathers
as Adam hangs on a cross. The Lord of the OT is the Son of God, the first born over all creation.
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,
so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to
himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
1 Cor 15
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[f]; the last Adam, a
1 Cor 10
16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation
in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
We are all from ONE loaf.
No need to blame Adam. You blame yourself in the process. Job knew this:
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
since the root of the trouble lies in him,[g]’
29 you should fear the sword yourselves;
for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,
and then you will know that there is judgment.
Careful blaming God for the error. The root of the trouble is not in God. It is in the one that also redeemed us from that error. He paid your

You know, it i hardly surprising that there is a hatred in the past of the ancient Israelis. You have to remember that, according to the very book
from 700 B.C. you mentioned, God ordered the Hebrews to come in to the land of Israel and kill every man, woman, and child of the Caananites. These
ancient people you put on a pedestal (and I do not hold modern Jewish people responsible for those actions) are guilty of genocide, pure and simple,
no sugar coating. They also conquered a land that was not theirs absent a several thousand year old book legislating their taking of the land.
It is time that Jewish and Christian people look these things in the eye and call it for what it is. I showed my good Jewish friend Jeff the passages
in the Bible talking about killing everybody because they were inpure, had the wrong beliefs, and would pollute the race of David. His response,
"Sounds just like Hitler."
