Natural Justice and Atonement

In the life of Saul and Agag

The slaughter of the Amalekites including women and children is one of the most difficult stories to explain in the Bible. Why was this commanded in the name of God?

How can this story be understood in the light of the cross?

The mystery of the cross explains all other mysteries. In the light that streams from Calvary the attributes of God which had filled us with fear and awe appear beautiful and attractive. Mercy, tenderness, and parental love are seen to blend with holiness, justice, and power. While we behold the majesty of His throne, high and lifted up, we see His character in its gracious manifestations, and comprehend, as never before, the significance of that endearing title, "Our Father."  {GC 652.1} 

Satan introduced a counterfeit justice system that infected the entire universe. The demand for punishment for transgression became almost universal. How is it possible for Satan’s justice to meet God’s mercy in a meaningful manner that opens the heart of man up to God?

The wonders of the cross explain all this and more. Read and discover the truth of this question and be set free from the horrendous belief that the God of Jesus Christ directly destroys little babies
