Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Questions and Objections

<< Neil H. said... As Thomas Paine put it, rather more concisely, this was "an order to butcher the boys, to massacre the mothers and debauch the daughters." There are many occasions of the Lord waxing wrath against the people of Israel, never mind the numerous tribes that they came into conflict with who were massacred or enslaved. The oddest example that springs to mind is in Exodus 32 . . . Which suggests that the Lord committed an evil act in contemplating wrath of which he only repented when Moses promised to conquer the lands on his behalf. How could he repent unless he had done something wrong in the first place? >>

If you think that's bad, how about the fact that God has proclaimed the death sentence upon every man, woman and child. It gets worse. Eternal damnation in a terrible place called Hell awaits everyone who has done evil. Everyone. The day will come when absolute justice will be done. That's wonderful news . . . if you are not a criminal in God's eyes. And if His judgments upset you, here's a verse for you to think about: "All of God's judgments are righteous and true altogether." I trust Him and I am not at all offended by anything He does. You don't, and you are offended. There’s a reason for that. Let's now talk about your sins for a moment. Have you ever lusted after a woman? Have you lied or stolen or used God’s name in vain? If you are like the rest of us and have done those things, you are a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart (see Matthew 5:27-28). Then who are you to stand in moral judgment over Almighty God! Delusions of grandeur, indeed. Humble yourself Neil, and you will see things as they are.
