Ethnic Cleansing

Please, are you ready to THINK? Are you ready to ask QUESTIONS? Here we go:
1 Samuel 15 New King James Version (NKJV)
15 Samuel also said to Saul, “The Lord sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the Lord. 2 Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. 3 Now go and attack[a] Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’ ”
Now please, try to look at this in a very graphic way. Close your eyes and imagine the Israelites slaughtering almost every single human being and animal in Amalek: little children, tiny infants learning to crawl, elders in their 80's and 90's, weak and trembling, 15 year olds, 35 year olds, dogs, sheep, etc... Slaughtering not with gunshots. Oh no! Gunshot death can be quick and less painful. ...Slaughtering with knives, arrows, swords, axes, etc...
Now see the blood spilling... Look at the 6 months old children with arrows through their necks, in great pains, bleeding and dying slowly. Look at the 17 year old boys and girls with their hearts split open by axes, bleeding, in great pains... Look at the pregnant women with their heads split in two, on the ground, panting, motionless... Look. See. And think. Then come to me and tell me that our Heavenly Father actually gave such an instruction to the Prophet Samuel! Come talk to me. Come tell me it's all hidden in mysteries. Come! Give your nod of approval to ethnic cleansing. Come! Now compare that "god" with the God Jesus Christ presented. Are they the same? Come! Talk to me. I'm listening. Thank you!
It is important to understand that Samuel was a human being just like you and I. He had his own limited viewpoint of God and his own biases. Yes: Some of his instructions were from God. But some simply originated in himself, even though he may have believed they were coming from God - just like we see in "Men of God" today. And it is possible for true believers to sometimes fall into the temptation of believing a doctrine of demons and claiming it to be a teaching or an instruction from the Eternal Paradise Father. We are duty bound to immerse ourselves in the study of, "The Nature of God".
