Whats better then a family debate?
The issue I have is this. If its about free will and HOPE that we come to God and place Thee in our hearts, WHY was all hope lost for these nations
that supposedly 'did not know God'. Are you saying God lost hope, not only in these nations, but also their children? And why, if this was Gods way
of letting us know which God was right, WHY then when Jesus came (God in the flesh, right?) all of the sudden, Gods attitude has changed? There were
still 'false' Gods in the time of Jesus, but now all of the sudden, God has grace? With in these nations that were doing wrong in Gods eyes, there
were children. Was there no hope for these children??? And look at all the wrong things Gods people did do. How many commandments did they brake?? Oh,
but God chose them, so he shall forgive them and keep hope in them because they were chosen, right?
And if its all about our 'free will' where in the world was the respect for those nations that did wrong for their FREE WILL. Were they not supposed
to have free will? God gets upset and impatient since they didnt obey? This sounds like a forceful God...
God in not like us, changing his mind all the time. God is consistent. To say God did take that land from the nations that were doing wrong just
because he CHOSE Abraham (who did not walk a straight road) and also God made 12 tribes out of a man who was helped by his mother to trick his Father
(Isaac) to receive the inheritance...why was God only forgiving to them but not to these other nations? If this is Gods work,how prejudice is this?
How hopeless he was to these other nations? Why didnt Jesus fulfill the promise and take the land and give it to the ones who were to inherit it?
Wasn't he to fulfill the promise? Ah, but Jesus was about Gods grace, so the promise I guess wasn't meant to be kept. If God meant for true 'peace
on earth' he would not continue to separate man into groups, he would not continue to point out our differences, he would not look at ONE nations, he
would reach out to them all. I guess all the OT hero's were so special that their wrongs were not wrongs enough to be killed, like the other nations.
Do you really think there is blood on Gods hands due to the loss of hope in a nation AND their children? Why wouldn't God show them grace in the OT?
Ah, oh yeah, because it wasnt time for grace yet, it was a time for the LAW. OK, so God brings the law, do not kill yada yada....and then he instructs
them to go against the law he gave, but Im sure God made a excuse for this somewhere.
Best intentions here mother
