58. God doesn’t fight anyone
God is present from generation to generation. He is now with Joshua. Joshua thinks God is fighting the people of the Amorites:
“They fought against you, but I delivered them into your power. You took possession of their land, and I destroyed them before you.” Joshua, chapter 24, verse 8
Joshua assumes that God is fighting in war with them. But he does not fight Joshua’s war enemies.
God has never been in their wars. God has never destroyed anyone. He has no weapons. It was the people of that time who believed that God was in their battles and gave to them victories against humans.
