Debate is to challenge, There are scriptures that stretch our reasoning and to meditate on them, is to expand our understanding. So here's something to get our teeth into. Moses was given the tablets of the law from God and the believers were called to obey them, and disobedience brought judgement on the perpetrators. This however, didn't appear to apply to God. Cain murdered Abel (thou shalt not kill) what did God do about this? It wasn't an eye for an eye, even though Cain was punished for what he did, God put a protection on him in the form of a mark, warning off anyone who wished him harm. Then there was Abraham, who lied to Abimelech regarding his wife Sarah, he told Abimelech Sarah was his sister. ( you shall not bear false wittness) Abimelech was furious after trying to make Sarah his wife and facing God, who told him the truth. Abraham was mightily blessed by God. Jacob stole Esau's birthright (you shall not covet and you shall not steal) and he did it by deceiving his father. Jacob was mightily blessed by God. David sent Uriah to the front line of battle so that he would be killed, because he, David, had committed adultery with Bathsheba, Uriah's wife, and he wanted her for himself ( you shall not commit adultery or murder). Although David paid a price, he was blessed by God. So it seems that God's ways are most definitely not our ways. Any thoughts?
