But it's a little disingenuous to claim the Bible to be the literal word of God, and still feel the need to gloss over the bad parts(Old Testament), and instead offer up the better parts(New Testament)...
ya, i love how naysayers spend half their time talking about how it isn't true or valid, unless it can be used against God and his followers, then it's the Gospel truth and POOF..has validity...talk about disengeuous...it's also sad how most can't comprehend that God works through broken people and people of faith.... Exactly why Christ was ridiculed and ostracized for mingling with those considered less than desirable characters of the day. rape, slavery, etc..it's no wonder they wandered for forty years, and only two men made it into the promised land..and to take that a step further, all those things you mentioned STILL happen to this day in the muslim world, yet not a peep...


...you don't know what you don't know....unless you've put the time into studying the Word, of course it's not going to make total sense...there are much deeper meanings and contexts...most of the OT was written for Jews IN THAT TIME PERIOD. NT for the Jew and Gentile.
