Does the Bible Really Condone Genocide?

By J. Warner Wallace Published on June 27, 2020

What are we to think of the Old Testament passages in which God seems to command the destruction of entire people groups? Does God approve of (and even command) genocide? In this video from J. Warner’s “Quick Shots: Fast Answers to Hard Questions” series on RightNow Media, J. Warner answers this common concern related to the claims of Christianity.

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors.
