"I don't think that either one of us claims absolute authority, so we are on that same page. Why would either one of us want to dominate the other point of view by way of deceit, threat of violence, or violence?"

I claim the Word of God, the Bible, is Holy and Supernaturally God-Inspired. I claim it is the very Word of God and has absolute authority even when I do not understand everything. That is the knowledge I have. I know.

How do I know? It is supernatural. It is accurate. Prophecies. pre-recored events have been fulfilled. There are more prophecies that will come to pass.

"I really think (believe or know) that the mess human beings are in is caused by this power the few have over the many whereby the many are led to believe in a very powerfully destructive lie that incorporates everyone into the routine of crime."

The Bible teaches that man loves darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil. Otherwise if man were good, then those few that maintain power would do good for mankind.

They say it takes a village to raise a child because those that seek power must remove the structure of the family unit that was ordained by God. When the authority is removed from the family, who is now the authority? The village? i.e. the state. And they are raising the children. When I was little kindergarden was 1/2 a day and it was a new thing. Now we send 4 year olds to all day government school. To be taught what? That their allegience is to the village instead of to God and His Word by Whom all blessings flow. Who does God tell children to obey? Their parents. Whose authority is being undermined by the village that IS raising the children?

But I suppose I digress. Because this topic is about a God that orders the death of children.

The Harlot and her family that was saved from Jericho. These are her words:

Joshua 2:9 And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faintbecause of you. 10 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. 11 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. 12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shewkindness unto my father's house, and give me a true token: 13 And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death. 14 And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will dealkindly and truly with thee."

They are words of faith and trust in the God of Israel. She KNEW that God had given their land to the Israelites. I know that God did that too.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

It all belongs to God; God can do, and God will do as God pleases.

When Joshua defeated Jericho, it was not a long drawn out torturous event. It was a swift event. It was over and done as fast as it started. There was not sorting of life by age or sex or kind. Both human and animal of all sexes and ages were destroyed and God commanded it to be done exactly so.

These things are for an example to us. Rahab let a scarlet cord out of her window to mark her place so that none of the people inside her dwelling were destroyed. That scarlet cord represents Christ. There is a scarlet cord that runs throught the Bible. It is pointing to the redemption of man by the Son of God.

This is what I know.
