When I was younger, and I read these scriptiures, I saw that this was a genocide. It is. But there was a delay “until the inquity of the Amorites is complete” My worry, my fear, i that these very people who Joshua removed from the face of the earth– and ther is a high probability that they were punic, and thus the evil of Carthage was among them. where children were sacrificed so that the trade would flow — is nothing compared to the evil that has been legistlated by my government.
The Papists have many faults, but on this we should be shamed: they have stood against the evils of abortion and euthanasia. Perhaps that is one reason that it is under attack, from within and without.And not just them; the other faithful congregations are under attack because COVID.
But if God did not spare Israel, who he chose, and removed from Egypt, and gave to them a good land, he will not spare us.
7 “When the Lord your God brings you into the land that you are entering to take possession of it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations more numerous and mightier than yourselves, 2 and when the Lord your God gives them over to you, and you defeat them, then you must devote them to complete destruction. You shall make no covenant with them and show no mercy to them. 3 You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, 4 for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly. 5 But thus shall you deal with them: you shall break down their altars and dash in pieces their pillars and chop down their Asherim and burn their carved images with fire.
6 “For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. 7 It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the Lord set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, 8 but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, 10 and repays to their face those who hate him, by destroying them. He will not be slack with one who hates him. He will repay him to his face. 11 You shall therefore be careful to do the commandment and the statutes and the rules that I command you today.
1 Timothy 6:11-12
11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
There are those who are promoting that we offend the almighty and demadd that the Almighty, who is without flaw, tolerate this, for if he does not tolerate evil he is evil. This is arrant nonsense, If we don’t want to be evil, we don’t allow it into our lives.
The enemy wants us addited to evil habits. He does not want us doing things that might (horro) make a differnce. He is makign it harder, much harder, to get things done.
But we were not promised a properous life. We were promised instead that the world would hate us, in the hpe that it will demoralize us. Brother Didact writes (NSFW)
The Truth of our God spreads. The fire rises. And evil trembles.
If you wonder why your life seems to be getting harder by the day, and why the old rules don’t work anymore, there is a very simple reason for this. You have devoted yourself to the Truth, and your Enemy hates you for it. So he throws ever greater obstacles in your way to make you despair and give up hope.
DO NOT let him win.
He has already lost. He knows it, and he knows that we know it. All he can do is inflict maximum collateral damage at this point. His methods are fearfully effective and dangerous, but his defeat is inevitable. Simply by enduring, and persevering, you will beat him.
That is why this site exists – to help you beat him.
Here at Didactic Mind, we don’t do Noble Defeat. We don’t do Honourable Surrender. We don’t play by the Rules of Nice. Around here, we believe in SMASHING THE ENEMY’S TEETH IN with a mailed fist, and then curb-stomping him.
And when I see the evil that is now marketed as essetnial to a health system — the killing of the inconvenient and those in the womb — I want to do some percussive dentistry.
I have to pray, fairly constantly, to keep the wrath in check. FOr letting ot pit and devoting this elite to destruction is not going to lead to revival. It is not my job to seek veangeance, but Gods.
And he has sequitsite timing.
So do not let your passions become a vvector for evil. Instead, pursue righteousness, and God will deal with the rest.
