For those of you that know the story - you can skip the intro
and fast forward to about the 7 minute mark.
So. The guys at The Bible Project copped out. I'm not surprised. Kinda disappointed though. My problem with this is this about that: I'm not a prude, and I won't stand for being lied to, or deliberately misled.
So - anyone - correct me if I'm wrong. I am asking about all this because I don't know - but here's the story as I understand it. Unlike the Bible Project guys, I am not going to shy away from something because I am afraid that thinking about it might give me some unpleasant conclusions:
A traveller takes up lodging in a strange town. Some drunken, Jewish queers circle the house and call the man out so they can sodomize him. So he says no way - take my wife instead? So, he throws her out, she gets raped and killed. When they're finished, he picks up her body, cuts it into 12 pieces and sends the pieces out as some kind of invitation to his allies to make war on the town. They go to town, wipe it out... almost decimating the entire tribe that lived there. But then, just to prove they're not all bad - they worry about finding wives for the last few that they didn't kill?
Can somebody tell me that I misunderstood that? I am not trying to be a dink or offend anyone... but I am looking at that, and I can see why Hitler hated joos! HAR HAR HAR!!! So what is the Christian stance on them? Are those mutts really God's chosen people? I am trying to take my faith seriously but this - this is a figurative intellectual pie in the face! I am starting to have some serious reservations about this faith business.
The rotten wood is starting to burn.
