Recap: The original conversation grew out of a conversation about God's power. FA asked if Judges 1:19 gave me any trouble.
The LORD was with the men of Judah. They took possession of the hill country, but they were unable to drive the people from the plains, because they had iron chariots. ~Judges 1:19The trouble FA sees is that, if God is all powerful and he was on the side of the men of Judah why were He/they stopped by iron chariots? Can iron stop God?
Wrap Up: I never thought this verse was saying iron stopped God. I interrupted the "loss" as the army not trusting God or God allowed them to lose. There isn't enough to say what the author was meaning. I don't think he was communicating that God was limited and the writers intent should be considered in the interpretation process.
