God’s Judgments are True.

God instructed Israel to put these people to death (see Deut. 20:16–18). Skeptics often accuse God of sanctioning genocide. However, if God treated any of us according to our sins, we would not only be put to death (see Rom. 6:23), we would be justly condemned to hell. All of God’s judgments are true and righteous altogether (see Psa. 19:9). None of them are unjust, including this instruction to Israel.

Joshua 16:10 And they did not drive out the Canaanites who dwelt in Gezer; but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites to this day and have become forced laborers.

One Response to God’s Judgments are True.

    God sees things very differently than we do. We think how horrible it was that even the children were killed–but those children had NO hope of knowing God, because of the grievous sins they would be brought up in. Rather than allow them to suffer horrible eternal punishment, God spared them and took the innocent little ones into His Kingdom.
