Genocide of the Amalekites

1 Sam.15:2-3 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "I have decided to settle accounts with the nation of Amalek for opposing Israel when they came from Egypt. Now go and completely destroy the entire Amalekite nation--men, women, children, babies, cattle, sheep, camels, and donkeys."

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

We define God as kind, merciful, loving, and compassionate. However, we have to come to terms with the fact (since the Bible is accurately 100% the Word of God) that God has another side to his character.

The Jews committed genocide of the Amalekites and the city of Jericho. The Jews were just as bad as the Nazis. What is the difference? Because God is on the Jews' side?
