Deuteronomy 10:18-20 is about as clear as we have seen or Jesus’ command to love God and love others. Early on, God demonstrates that he cares for those outside of the nation of Israel. It’s important to remember this as more people and more nations will be slaughtered. I don’t claim to know why God does what he does, but I do know that he will receive anyone who chooses him. It reminds me of the debate over heaven and hell. Some people choose to believe there is no hell and others say they don’t believe a God of love would create a hell. All I have to say is, “Have read the Old Testament?”
