by Debi Pearl – No Greater Joy magazine – How to Teach Your Children to Know God
Editor’s note: This is just another very dull piece of word salad about the book of Joshua that Debi Pearl is studying. What makes it noteworthy is that Debi proves clearly one of the things that seems to be a sad truth in fundamentalism – that if there is a way to link sex to something or someone in a negative way then they will. Yes, Debi went right to the practice of bestiality in this piece.
The deed God was asking of Joshua and the children of Israel was so horrific, he sent his own angelic captain to give Joshua clear instructions. Joshua would need bold courage to do such a thing, so he would need to know for sure it was God giving the order. Joshua would have to simply believe when God said everything was contaminated to the point of poison—accursed!
Some may ask, “How could God be so insensitive as to kill even the children? And why kill the animals? And why destroy the goods and valuables when they would be such an aid to the children of Israel who had been traveling all these years?”
We are not told the reasons God acted thus, but due to the fact that in some future conquests they were not required to destroy animals and inanimate objects, it is a fair guess that this particular city was infected with disease that would be spread though the personal objects taken from their homes. Even darker is the thought that the people of Jericho practiced bestiality, so the animals had to be destroyed. God didn’t explain it, but when God speaks there is good reason behind it.
