The righteousness of GOD in process with covenant partners and in all divine judgment are topics, today.  A fighter at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Belmont” (Level 1 with 95 points, a member since August 21, 2016) posted the following:

 

How is he a fair god if,according to the bible,he chose a group of people (Jews) over others and led them into a wars over other people?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?  When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.  Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.  Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.  Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?  Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.  Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit:  for why will ye die, O house of Israel?  For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD:  wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.  (Ezekiel 18:  25-32, King James Version, KJV)

“Belmont”, mature Christian believers do not agree with you that a sovereign Creator—who has put forth all that exists; who is a “god of Judgment;” who “owns and possesses” every living creature and created being; and who engages the living through communication, exchange, and personal interaction using ongoing relationships (e.g., covenants, fellowship, friendship, Incarnation, inheritance, judgment, rebirth)—can be correctly evaluated and questioned using finite tools and operations that are subject to human error.  Because GOD is a spirit, the content, process, and substance of GOD may only be known using spirit matter and operations that arise from interactions among and within the various aspects of spirit that are the divine makeup (for example, faith, holiness, longsuffering, meekness, wisdom, and wrath against sin).  Many aspects of eternal being remain holy, sanctified and separated from created beings and living creatures.  Mankind may not even have the idea that divinity exists, let alone that Deity may be challenged and condemned, except through  operations carried out by divinity.  Consider again the following Scriptures:

(1.)   Ezekiel 16:  48-50, King James Version (KJV):  48 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.  49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.  50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me:  therefore I took them away as I saw good.

(2.)  Isaiah 55:  7-11, KJV:  7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts:  and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.  8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.  10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:  11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:  it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

(3.)  Ezekiel 18:  20-23, KJV:  20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:  the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.  21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.  22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him:  in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.  23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD:  and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (4.)  James 4:  8-12, KJV:  8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.  9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep:  let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.  10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.  11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law:  but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.  12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy:  who art thou that judgest another?)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
