Annihilating the Canaanites: Was that Right?



It is common in the Bible for God to use one people to punish another people. Israel was punished by God through the Philistines, Assyrians, and most notably the Babylonians and the Romans. In the case of the Canaanites, God was using Israel to punish their sin. However, it’s important to note that in every case God uses a sinful people to punish a sinful people: there is no case of good guys versus bad guys, and each time God afterwards punishes the instrument of judgment that He used.
