OK. So it’s not that earth shattering. But we hope to build it up bit by bit into something really worthwhile.

To begin with, I’ve made available a short piece trying to answer some tough questions related to the sermon I’m preaching on Sunday. I’m preaching from Deuteronomy 7 where God prepares Israel to conquer the promised land. Here, as one commentator puts it, ‘Divine love and grace stand at the core of a chapter commanding total destruction!’ (Christopher J. Wright, Deuteronomy; p 106). I’d love to hear your thoughts on my wrestlings!

  1. The other “attack dog of contempory atheism” (Dawkins) informs readers that:

    “When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly half way between. It is possible for one side simply to be wrong.”

    This statement is perfectly suited to explaining Deuteronomy 7.

    The opposing points of view in this case are the Israelite’s adoption of the Commandments versus the sin and idolatry of the Caananites. Without labouring the point, it is possible for one side simply to be wrong.

    But I doubt this was an argument that occurred to Dawkins.
