You are deliberately avoiding simple well known facts like you tried to do with the straw man assertion.

And you seem to be deliberately avoiding answering a simple question. Do you or do you not believe that slaughtering men women and children in an act of genocide is wrong? Why the reticence on this, what are you afraid of?

This has already been explained to you.....SIN...

What you have missed is that the destruction was punishment for SIN, something that God has always done when necessary.

The Old Testament demonstrates the awfulness of sin.

We need to see sin in the same awful light God does.

Another Christian who isn't about to let the teachings of Jesus get in the way of their Christianity. You know, the whole do unto others and let he who is without sin business, just gets in the way of self-righteousness. Good luck on that prayer, you are probably going to need it.

Nothing has been explained to me. I have asked if you fundies believe that the mass slaughter of men woman and children in an act of genocide is acceptable and I have asked what you think of a person who is capable of going from child to child, infant to infant and running each of them through with a sword. The silence from you fundies on this has been deafening and all you can come up with is "sin". You believe that your god ordered the extermination of a nation and that is genocide.

Is there any chance that one of you fundies will man up and actually answer my questions?

Good news. Jesus NEVER said a single word about homosexuality, and the verses bigots pervert to CLAIM the Bible views sex between consenting gay adults as a "sin" don't actual do that at all.
Jesus isn't the problem. Bigots blaming their hate on the one who gave us one rule--love your neighbor--they are the problem.

9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,

Based on law. There's no contextual ambiguity. You avoid answering directly when you know you have no honest options that don't agree with me. Weak.
There are man's laws and there are God's Laws. Now you know.

BTW, this distinction carries the greater weight of the two forms of identification.
The application we should take from this is that even though this man was a brother to Jesus Christ Himself, the most important distinction any disciple could have would be that of a "bondservant of Jesus Christ."
Yeshua did not come to induce ANY form of bondage, but liberation.

" ... preach freedom from bondage ... "

" ... to declare the year of jubilee of the Lord ... "

Jude...."a bondservant of Jesus Christ"
Before identifying himself as the brother of James, Jude chose to first proclaim that he was a "bondservant of Jesus Christ."
There was lots of that going around.

Ever read "The Shepherd" by Hermas?

The guy who pushed for the compilation of a canon, Ireneaeus, considered it to be canonical.

Learn.

You would take the word of Wiki (which is NOT always right and not biblical) over the Word of God.....
No matter how you twist it or turn it....we are under the New Testament and Paul is NOT a false prophet.....
Check the footnotes.
