    Read about the people the Jews warred with - they were very barbaric and brutal people. God had a plan of salvation through Jesus, a Jew, and in order to fulfill that promise he had to keep the Jews safe. Thus they had to at times eliminate tribes who posed a dire threat to them. Furthermore, Jewish law in Deuteronomy ruled that before going to war, the Jews HAD to offer a peace first, in whoever made peace with the Jews, the Jews were bound to keep it (Joshua 2:14).

    God would withdraw his protection when the Jews became idol worshipers and such, but would always restore them in time. But God absolutely had to keep the Jews from disappearing, because if they had been slaughtered by their neighboring tribes then ultimately God could not have fulfilled his promise of redemption through the Jewish bloodline, and that would have means that all mankind would have perished.

    because God was giving their land to them. Its not like they were innocent, if you read the Bible, the heathen which were driven out were sacrificing to devils, even sacrificing babies and forcing children to pass through the fire.

    Just so you know, the God of the New Testament is going to destroy people eternally, which is alot worse then being attacked by warriors.

    God is just, and unless we conform completely to his 10 commandments, we cannot be trusted in heaven, and human beings unfortunately cannot obey the 10 commandments, this is why we need a saviour. When you see a Christian who goes out of their way to help people, who gets mocked for being a Christian but will still happily go up to the next person he meets and talk about Jesus' love for them, who doesn't lose his temper and is ever temperate, always living the law of love, then you see someone who has the gospel.

    God bless!

    There has always been wars and always will be because nobody will ever totally agree about certain things but that doesn't mean God commanded there be wars that's man excuse to annihilate one another.

    Jesus said he came to bring the sword .... not peace. Read the Bible

    MATTHEW 10 v 34

    "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword
