The Evil Ways Of The Canaanites

The sins of the Canaanites were at the boiling point and Joshua was to completely destroy them lest Israel inherit their evil ways. Some of the abominations happening in the land were temple prostitution, father and son committing sexual acts with the same prostitute, child sacrifice, homosexuality, idolatry, and on and on. God spoke about their evil ways throughout the entire Old Testament. Lev 18:25-30 `For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. `You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you `for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), `lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. `For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. `Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the LORD your God."
