  • The Sins Of The Canaanites: Blood-Lust, Murder, Incest, Sex With Animals

    JAG Writes:

    The takeaway point in all this below is that the God of the Bible was totally
    justified in giving His command to Israel to totally destroy the Canaanites.

    _______

    The Canaanites Were Not Salvageable --- They Had Sunk To The Very
    Bottom On The Immorality Scale:

    {A} Cold Blooded Murder.

    {B} Incest With Close Family Members.

    {C} Murdered Their Own Children {Molech}.

    {D} Blood-Lust Gory Murder Religious Ceremonies.

    {E} Sex With Animals.

    God's purpose was to get rid of all that up there and replace it with the
    religion of the nation of Israel which prohibited all such vile sins.

    "The Lord said to Moses, speak to the Israelites and say to them, You
    must not do as they do in the land of Canaan where I am bringing you.

    Do not follow their practices." Leviticus 18:1-3

    "Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways {listed in Leviticus 18:6-23}
    because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you
    became defiled."

    "For all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before
    you" Leviticus 18:27

    ". . . the detestable customs that were practiced before you came" Leviticus 18:30

    So what were they doing that was so bad?

    Here is the list of the sins of the Canaanites:

    (1) They were having sex with their close family members. Leviticus 18:6

    (2) They were having sex with their mothers. Leviticus 18:7

    (3) They were having sex with their sisters. Leviticus 18:9

    (4) They were having sex with their grandchildren. Leviticus 18:10

    (5) They were having sex with their aunts. Leviticus 18:14

    (6) They were having sex with their daughters-in law. Leviticus 18:15

    (7) They were having sex with their brother's wife. Leviticus 18:16

    ( 8 ] They were having sex with their neighbor's wife.. Leviticus 18:20

    (9) They were having homosexual sex. Leviticus 18:22

    (10) They were giving their children to be murdered in sacrifice to Molech. Leviticus 18:21

    Now The Canaanites Had Sunk To Bestiality.

    (11) The Canaanites were having sex with animals. Leviticus 18:23

    (12) Their women were specifically mentioned as having sex with animals. Leviticus 18:23

    There was a total of 6 tribes that were practicing (1) through (12) up there:

    Hittites Amorites Canaanites Perizzites Hivites Jebusites All 6 tribes are generally
    referred to as the "Canaanites." Deuteronomy 20:16-18

    The command of God to the Israelites in Deuteronomy 20:16 "do not leave alive
    anything that breathes" was applicable only to these 6 tribes that were practicing
    (1) through (12) listed up-post.

    All the other many tribes and cities that were living at a distance from the Canaanites
    were to be offered an opportunity to make peace with the Israelites and were never
    the object of total annihilation as was the 6 totally corrupt Canaanite nations.

    See Deuteronomy 20:11 and Deuteronomy 20:15 on the offer of peace to be made
    to the nations living at a distance from the Canaanites.

    The reason for the offer of peace was that these nations living at a distance from the
    Canaanites were morally salvageable and they were accordingly shown mercy if
    they would agree to make peace with the Israelites.

    Repeat . . . The Canaanites Were Not Salvageable --- They Had Sunk To The
    Very Bottom Of The Immorality Scale:

    {A} Cold Blooded Murder.

    {B} Incest With Close Family Members.

    {C} Murdered Their Own Children {Molech}

    {D} Blood-Lust Gory Murder Religious Ceremonies.

    {E} Sex With Animals.

    "washed her hands in human gore" . . . .

    Start quote.
    "Consider the bloodlust and violence of the Canaanite deity Anath, the
    patroness of both war and sex.

    The late archaeologist William Albright describes the Canaanite deity Anath's
    massacre in the following gory scene.

    The blood was so deep that she waded in it up to her knees -- nay, up to her neck.
    Under her feet were human heads, above her human hands flew like locusts.

    In her sensuous delight she decorated herself with suspended (human) heads
    while she attached (human) hands to her girdle.

    Her joy at the butchery is described in even more sadistic language. Her liver
    swelled with laughter, her heart was full of joy, the liver of Anath (was full of)
    exultation.

    Afterwards Anath was satisfied and washed her hands in human gore before
    proceeding to other occupations."
    End quote.

    The above quote regarding Anath is from Is God A Moral Monster: Making
    Sense Of The Old Testament God, by Paul Copan, page 159

    So?

    So in light of all the above up-post, the following seems very reasonable , , , ,.

    "However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an
    inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy
    them-the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites
    as the LORD your God has commanded you. Otherwise, they will teach you
    to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you
    will sin against the LORD your God. __Deuteronomy 20:16-18

    , , , , , in light of: The Sins Of The Canaanites: Blood-Lust, Murder, Incest, Sex
    With Animals.

    CONCLUSION: The God of the Bible was totally justified in giving His
    command to the nation of Israel to totally destroy the Canaanite tribes
    because they were not salvageable. Blood-lust, murder, close family
    member incest, sex with animals.
