Taste of Seminary: A Genocidal God?

Dr. Todd Daly
The Old Testament contains several passages where God commands the annihilation of an entire people groups—men, women, children, and animals. These divinely-sanctioned instances of ‘violence against the innocent’ seem to run contrary to other Old Testament passages speaking of God’s mercy, and especially difficult to reconcile with the ‘gentle Jesus’ who renounces violence in the New Testament. What are we to make of the charge that Christians worship a genocidal God? This lecure series is free and EVERYONE is invited to join us!
