Most Christians have been taught that the Bible is the word of God and is a guide book for believers on issues of morality, and ways to train up our children in righteousness. God is portrayed as our heavenly father, whom earthly men should pattern themselves after. So, let me ask this simple question using the Bible as my guide book: Is this an example of a loving father….?

 

Deut. 22:28-29 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold (seize) of her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

 

I should hope that no sane person would say yes. Just imagine, a young girl is seized and raped by a man, all the man is required to do under God’s law is to pay the girls father 50 pieces of silver, then the man is obliged marry the girl he just raped and never divorce her! All I can say is fortunately our “loving” heavenly father doesn’t make the laws in our modern society. It’s time to wake up, take off the blinders and see what the Bible is really saying.

 

Here are a couple more biblical examples showing how a father would rather give his daughters to be raped in order to protect the honor of his male guests. The truly sad thing is that there is not one scintilla of rebuke for the actions of the father….they are in fact condoned!

 

Gen. 19:5-8 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them. And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

 

Judges 19:23-25 And the man, the master of the house, went out unto them, and said unto them, Nay, my brethren, nay, I pray you, do not so wickedly; seeing that this man is come into mine house, do not this folly. Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing.

If these verses aren’t enough to make your blood boil, I think you better read them again. This is the Bible that children in Sunday school and their parents in Church are being taught is the word of their loving heavenly father.

    Hello Rose,

    Just wanted to make sure I was clear about your stand on Gods Word; you are not in agreement that it IS His Word – right?

    Hi Dan,
    That’s right. The God of the Bible is wholly constructed from the minds of men. It makes no sense to think otherwise.
