Welcome to Opposing Views Friday. This is the place where I post a question that invites your comments and views on various subjects. The floor is open to you with only three simple requests: 1. Keep your comments short (one thought at a time is helpful) 2. Be respectful and 3. Stay on topic!
In Genesis 15:16 God remarkably tells Abraham that his decendents will be sent to Egypt for four generations because the sins of the Amorites “has not yet reached its full measure”.
In Genesis 18:20-21 God says He’s going to check up on the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah to see how bad they are. They are judged and destroyed.
The book of Jonah is about how God sends a messenger to the Assyrian capital with a message – repent or perish.
The Babylonians, the Egyptians, the Persians, they are all variously judged in the books of the Prophets. Either through war (as in the case with the Amorites) or with natural (unnatural) disasters (as in the case with Sodom and Gomorrah).
The question I want to put forth today is this: Does God still deal with secular unbelieving nations today as He did in the Old Testament or was there a fundamental change in God’s dealings with the secular nations after the cross? Or what?
