Well, do you expect the bible to make sense? :lol:

It does if you consider those parts as war propaganda used to get "your" people ready to kill their enemies. The Koran has some Suras about killing Jews, too. The problem is when you believe that those statements were written by an all-knowing God of universal love.

Mixed in with the smiting and sinning and "thou shalt nots" is some very deep stuff. Recommend you read Job and then Carl Jung's "Answer to Job" for some interesting psychological insights.

You mean when Job asks the important question: "Is there any taste in the white of an egg?"

Metaphors. "The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat." The meaning of suffering.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Metaphor:Innerplanetary time travelers.

From the Book of Fazer:
1:1 And they spake, and said "Lord, the mortal has divined our secret, whatso shall we do?"
1:2 And the Lord was wroth, and said "Smitest him with the lightnings, and the thunders, and the terrible destruction, lest he speak of this to the other mortals."
1:3 And they quailed before Him, and one spake, saying "Lord, the lightnings, and the thunders, and the terrible destruction were to be repaired after their use on Soddom and Gomorrah, and a low-bid contract was entered, but the contractor has finished not the work, and says that it will be yet another eon before it is done."
1:4 And they quailed and abased themselves before the Lord when this was said.
1:5 And Satan abased himself with the rest but hid his mouth that none should see his smile.
