Ive read these stories before but it amazes me how retreading them it looks so different. How simple men can change gods mind. If you want to read numbers 14 go ahead I'll just throw in a few verses. Israel rebelled and god said this... 11 The Lord said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.”
then Moses replies ith this... 13 Moses said to the Lord, “Then the Egyptians will hear about it! By your power you brought these people up from among them. 14 And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, Lord, are with these people and that you, Lord, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. 15 If you put all these people to death, leaving none alive, the nations who have heard this report about you will say, 16 ‘The Lord was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath, so he slaughtered them in the wilderness.’
Well god forgives them but still punishes them but not with genocide. My question is how does this happen this god lets a mere human who can not begin to understand or explain his Omniscient ways talk him down, and why does the treat of what people think or say change his mind. He is godif he wants to wipe them all out why not? We can look into the story of Noah and see how he wipped out everyone so we know that's not the problem.
