So I have been reading it daily, ( although some days I miss and then play catch up. ) Yes I said MISS. I am not perfect. Oh and did I mention IT IS A HARD BOOK TO READ???
Anywho as I read it I get all these questions in my head that make me go REALLY???
Sara and Abraham did not have kids, so she GAVE her SLAVE to Abraham to marry and have kids with.
Ok right there I have questions. 1st, why were there slaves? 2nd UMM that is Polygamy and I thought God was against it
then Sara becomes jealous of her slave and tells Abraham to send her into the desert away, so he does.
Yep another question.
so after allowing her husband to commit adultery they now send her and the baby away KNOWING they might die, and they have no issue with it. Then God tells her ( the slave ) to Go back to Sara and basically be mistreated. REALLY?
then after all that he rewards them with many descendants to become a great nation.
Ok do you see my dilemma? I mean how does one read this and NOT think something is fishy?
I know it all comes down to Faith, But then I think WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE FAITH? am I damned to Hell? What if God gets angry with me because I am to dense to understand his word?
yes these questions run through my head and frighten me. And to top that off I believe that men and woman are Born Gay. So then if they are, does that mean that God Loves them? ( which I whole heartily believe God does ) but then others will say NO THE BIBLE SAYS ITS WRONG...
Ok so it does. So why is that wrong but Abraham, and Issac and the rest of them having many wives NOT wrong?
Oh I am so confused. So if any of you feel the need to help explain any of this to me that would be FANTASTIC....
