Godís Acts of Destruction

God is light and Life. In Him is no shadow of turning. But to say God does not have the right (or moral capability) to turn flesh to dust is to ignore that the appearance of death to God is an illusion.

For example, if a wicked man ďdiesĒ he is already dead. Therefore God isnít turning a life to dust if he is put down. Meanwhile, the righteous have eternal life. God cannot kill him by turning his flesh to dust, even if He calls His son to come home, because he can never die.

God takes the righteous to spare him from needless suffering. He takes the wicked when his cup is full.

To say God does not destroy like man because his destruction is passive ignores the fact that King David was guilty once of just such an act. David didnít actively attack Uriah. David withdrew his protection from him in the heat of battle by using his men. Murder is often disguised as malicious indifference.

To not save a life when you can is to kill. God can save every life that he takes, setting Himself apart from man.

Godís destruction is benevolent, as is the ferocious protection of parents and angels who are made in His image. He is not set apart from sinners by His passive love, but His consistent, righteous love.
