Check out this video from Dr. Paul Copan addressing one of the most challenging and difficult questions for most Christians - "How can the God of the Old Testament be a loving God and command the wholesale slaughter of entire civilizations, including innocent women and children?".
Dr. Copan gives one of the best and clearest responses to this question that I have heard to date. It's about 80 minutes in total, but it is well worth the time.
Take good notes and remember his responses so that you can have an INTELLIGENT FAITH when asked this question. God bless you all!
