Laws of War

How should God’s people wage war?

I would argue that they shouldn’t. But in under the Old Covenant, they surely did. It should come as no surprise that God gave the Hebrews laws of war. In this episode, I talk with Adam Terrell about those laws and how they might apply today.

Adam is the host of the Theocracy Podcast.
