Did God command killings in the Old Testament or was that a misunderstanding?

Another thought provoking post from unkleE

the Way?

Arguments rage about the Bible and how we should interpret it, especially about the Old Testament. Conservative christians are often critical of those who take a “liberal” view, which conservatives see as destructive and unfaithful, while sceptics tend to see the conservatives as not following the evidence.

Is there any way to break through on this question? Are there any clues in the Bible itself?

It turns out that there is much food for thought.

Another thought for the day…

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 

Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, but test everything that is said. 

Hold on to what is good. Stay away from every kind of evil. 

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. 

God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.
