#1. Question About Women Singing.
  Dear Mr. Davidy,
Thanks for your reply. I appreciated it, but I do have one more question that doesn't pertain to that article, but it's just something
that I'm wondering about. Two years ago I started college and one of my professors said that there are verses in the Bible 
where God told the ancient Israelites to murder and commit genocide on whole people and even kill the children. I told Mom about this
 and she told me that Mr. Armstrong said that there are somethings we just don't understand, but that God did love those people and
someday they will be brought back to life. Mom said for me not to worry about that, but I still don't like it or understand why those people
had to die. It just seems like lately, well, since starting attending university, I sometimes wonder if the Bible is really God's word like we've been taught.
I mean I do believe in God and everything, at least I always thought I did for sure, for sure. Now, things seem much more complicated.
Okay, if you have time and can respond, please do. If not, then I understand. My question is, if God is so loving, which I do believe he is, I just can't
understand at all, not at all! how soldiers in the army could be ordered to kill all the people including the children.

All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
