Your god is very rigid about some things. Others, not so much.
God really liked Lot. And he didn't seem to have a problem when Lot offered up his virgin daughter to be raped by a mob. Why was your god ok with that? And then, this poor young woman, who was betrayed by her own blessed father, not surprisingly ends up having some questionable sexual interests. And her father remains blameless?
Your god also really liked Abraham. But he told him to have sex with Hagar. And rewarded him with a son for doing it.
There are certainly those here who know the scriptures better than I do, but it seems to me that your god seems to give his favorite widgets a different set of rules than the rest of us.
Can you clarify why this is?
I'm really hoping not to get a "it's impossible to know god's will" answer. Because it seems really clear that he is sending very mixed messages.
And that brings me to my favorite question. Clearly, lots of adherents find lots of different truths in the scriptures. And they're all really sure that their interpretation is the right one.
So why did your god write such a confusing rule-book? Wouldn't it have been better if he had said what he wanted to say, in a way that everyone can understand?
