Did God Approve of Genocide in the Old Testament? (Season 3 Episode 24)
This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, the best Christian podcast on the web, we answer the question: Did God Approve of Genocide in the Old Testament?
When God commanded the destruction of entire cities in the Old Testament, was he condoning – even commanding -- genocide? By what right did God destroy so many human beings on such a large scale?
In this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and special guest Dr. Nicolas Ellen discuss how the Old Testament accounts of widespread destruction are not contradictory to God’s righteous character; rather, these stories put His character on display – His perfect justice and mercy.
But how could apparent genocide say anything good about God? How do we understand these Old Testament passages and learn from them? These questions and more are addressed in this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, as Dr. Richard Caldwell and Dr. Nicolas Ellen take us to God’s Word.
