Joshua and Pain

Some thoughts Joshua and the problem of pain

  1. We all deserve to die
  2. Part of what makes us so mad is that we want everyone to experience God's grace - but God never promised this
  3. The stories standout because they are the exception - not necessarily the norm
  4. Grace is offered to all - but we must be willing to accept it.
    1. Rahab
    2. Gibeonites
    3. lots of small towns that were not destroyed.
  5. In spite of the flaws, we want God to let us be us
  6. Instead, we need to let God be God
