How Does a Loving God Justify the Holy Wars of the Old Testament?

Core Christianity

Christian talk radio with Pastor Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier

February 17, 2020

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. I have been reading the Old Testament and I see where the Ishmaelites have the crescent moon. What is that all about, and does this have anything to do with Muslims today? 2. Is it wrong for a Christian to do good works to prove to themselves that they are saved and have Christ? Or should they obey because they have Christ already? 3. I know that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, but I struggle with the way God is portrayed in the Old Testament. I have a hard time making sense of God using Israel judging nations through wars where women and children were killed. 4. Who are the spirits in prison in 1 Peter 3:19? Is this a kind of purgatory? 5. How do you understand the passage in Romans 8 where it says that the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with groans too deep for words? Resources Knowing God by J. I.
