Vagon said: "Today's Christian Memory Verse"But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 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." (Gen. 19:4-8)
This seems very interesting to me. What is God saying here?"
Ray responds: "Vagon...good question. God is showing us the some people are stupid (as Lot was in this case). It's a good lesson. Thanks for bringing it up."
So, just to check the meaning of this, it's perfectly acceptable to do something that a child would know was unconscionably wrong, as long as you're being stupid. There will be no negative comeback, and you will not be held accountable for your actions.
Like to see that in a court of law:
'Your honour, I realise that committing genocide is wrong, but at the time I wanted to know if shooting people would result in their tears being made of pewter.'
'No problem; dismissed.'
Incidentally, acccording to Biblical law that if the two daughters are, as he says, virgins, then they're obliged to marry their rapist. One wonders how this is worked out in a gang rape situation? Does the first rapist become the husband and thus all the subsequent rapes become adulterous? And are they subject to the law that says that if a woman is raped within the city walls she should be stoned to death because she clearly didn't shout loudly enough? The viciousness and illogicallity of these immoral 'laws' rapidly becomes too heavy to manage.
Meanwhile 2 Peter 2:7-8 calls Lot 'righteous' and 'justified'...
Not a newsflash, but 'The Bible; a crock of rancid shit'.
