so you believe that people who sin really dont want to sin at all and have a great desire to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength but God is forcing them to do otherwise against their will? genesis 6:5 doesnt agree with you as well as psalms 58:3
God forced eve to do something she absolutely did not want to do? genesis 3:2-6 says otherwise.
what abraham did with his son was pointing to what Christ did on the cross. abraham loved God enough to give up his son and God loved His chosen people who would believe in Him enough to give up his son for their sins.
i believe i already explained that God destroyed nations because of their sin and yes, he used various means to do so, including people and nations.
however, this was all during the old covenant of moses when God was clearing out nations for israel to possess the land. israel, however, rebelled against God by committing idolatry with other nation's gods and so God punished israel by various means, one of those means was sending nations against israel to conquer them and enslave them.
there is no command for the new covenant church of Christ to go around killing anybody. though we are commanded to ex-communicate unrepentant sinners in 1 corinthians 5.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
