For some reason my heart just can't get away from my faith no matter what I do. I don't consider myself in any religion but I have taken it upon myself to really study and understand the bible. I do a daily devotional for woman and of course most things I get and see but it seems that they "pick and choose" which verses. That particular verse sounds great but I go further and read the entire passage.
So anyway, this day the devotional quoted Joshua 6:2. The idea was to think about if God has given you something that you knew would happen before it did and did you take it as a blessing. The other thought that was written in this devotional was how we may not understand some things but God is working behind the scenes. Ok, I get that but....
In reading Joshua 6 did God really approve of killing all those people? Maybe I need to go back some and figure out why this happened in the first place but I don't see the justification in this at all and on top of that save the prostitute because she hid the spies?? It seems more like man's idea of a story rather than an inspired one to me.
