Clearly, in reading this article, you can only walk away with the confirmation that 1.America IS Babylon.
2.The "God" on the dollar bill that supposedly points to proof of America being a "Christian nation" is not THE God of biblical scripture.
3.America will always prioritize and value something else over and before the majority of human lives.
4.Biblical end times is playing out before our very eyes, and in our life time!
Lastly, I want to correct not only the author of this article, but also so many more people as well who use verses like the one linked in the article, to justify anti-God feelings and thoughts. The author says:
"This is the biblical justification given for why Israelites should exterminate Canaanites, the worship of their gods, and their customs from the Promised Land."
The article in a link cites Deuteronomy 7:1-5. Verse 2, and the reason for their use of the word "exterminate" reads:
Deuteronomy 7:2a And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
I contend the word improperly translated as "destroy" should read another connotation of the same word which is "ban", isolate, or "seclude", which is more reasonable given the following verses:
2b thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them
["Mercy" is better translated as "favor" when taken in context with the rest of the verses]
3 Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to his son, nor shall you take his daughter to your son. 4 For they will turn away your son from following Me, so that they may serve other gods. So the anger of the LORD will be kindled against you and will destroy you suddenly. 5 But you SHALL deal with them in this way: you shall destroy their altars and break down their images, and cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire.
I do not believe God is calling for their extermination, but their isolation from those called according to God's holiness.
I believe God is saying:
"Don't let them play on your emotions when you banish them. They will corrupt you and your children, and then YOU as well will be judged. Here's what I want you to do. Isolate them, burn and break down their idols, images, altars and places of worship so my people wont get infected."
