Advocating wars?

This seems like a safe place to ask about some of my questions about the Bible. Not sure if just myself, but I've always wondered why God (who is supposed to be a God of love) is telling people (basically) advocating for wars and killing. I thought thou shalt not kill?

Something I wondered a lot too. I always heard that it was because God was full of wrath in the old testament, but not in the new testament. Although, I'm not entirely sure if that is accurate or true. Would be good to get that cleared up for me too!

I think it depends on the context. But God definitely doesn’t like death

@skyblue Right! It says that in Ezekiel 18:32
