God new evidence

GOD: new evidence


Evil Canaanites?

(Ethnic Cleansing in the Bible #4)

What's in the series?      Previous: Cities or Citadels?'       Next: A Chance to Turn?

We find it difficult to accept that a good and wise God could command the killing of the Canaanites, as described in the Bible.

But the Canaanites were evil. They practised infant sacrifice, bestiality, incest, and ritual prostitution.

So rather than saying that a good and wise God would never command this sort of thing, we need to look at it from the other side, and say that given the moral corruption of the Canaanites, a good and wise God had a morally justified reason for commanding what he did.

Fourth video in the series 'Ethnic Cleansing in the Bible?' with professor Paul Copan, author of 'Is God a moral monster?'
