Why did God authorize the killing of innocent children?

(Joshua 6:21, 27) “They exterminated everything in the city with the sword: man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and ass. The Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the land”.

Does God authorize the killing of innocent children today? How would you support your answer?

The Changing Face Of Homelessness


An older article but still timely. Don’t be so quick to write off someone who’s homeless as being a deadbeat or drug addict. When you see a homeless person why not take the time to find out why they’re in that situation. Perhaps there is something you can do to be of assistance, other than pray that God intervene on their behalf.

People who work with the homeless say they’re seeing more families, more women and children, and more people who were knocked down by a job loss, divorce or domestic violence – or by jobs that paid too little and medical bills or housing that cost too much. They are also seeing more people who have jobs that pay minimum wage or less and can’t afford housing.

Shelters are teeming with veterans and teenagers, people struggling with mental illness and substance abuse, people who have been homeless for years, and new arrivals who never imagined they would be homeless.
