I see...so it's not a contradiction, but rather just plain evil. Also, in this instance, how are these killings not murder? What is your (or your God's) definition of murder?
Maybe this is getting OT which is a no no, so I'll try to tie it back together. If Jesus existed (which he did not) and was ,as most of his followers claim, a man of peace and love*, then it seems exceedingly unlikely that, as God (also non-existent) he would actually be a bloodthirsty murderer.** Therefore, in my Godless opinion, No, Jesus is not God in the flesh.
* "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. (Luke 6:26:)
** They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB) youch!!
Grillo, it can't be thou shalt not murder, because you kill things almost daily yourself that you don't see... do you consider stepping on innocent bugs, and ants murder??? If that's the case then you need to propose a new law.
Other than that you are taking scripture out of context... God told the Israelites to destroy the Amorites because if they did not, they would rise up again and destroy the Israelites... which is exactly what they did because the Israelites disobeyed God, and spared the Women and Children.
God was protecting His own people, and if you would've spared the murderer of your family only for him to come back in 10 years to kill you and your restored family then there isn't much else I can say, because that would be illogical.
