Hi,

But why a mauling from bears?

Of all the things that God could have done to protect, to deter however you may wish to think of it - why evoke the might of bears? I really struggle with this.

There's plenty of other manifestations of God in the Old Testament - ones that aren't so violent and are actually, far more "glorious" for want of a better word, and these are ones that (potentially) may have provided some converts in the process?
Just imagine those 42 seeing a burning bush that would speak to them - how awe inspiring would that have been?

So I struggle to understand why God deliberately chose to use two female Bears to maul 42 humans?

He can doing anything can't he?
There's nothing that is beyond God's power - so why the Bears?

Hoping you can help me with this.

Neil

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
