And what would you call Abraham marrying his sister?<quoted text>
God says never, ever, can these people be a part of Israel
These people were the result of incest. Defective from the start. The daughters of Lot got their father drunk and had sex with him. These people are the result.(Genesis 19:30-37). So even if the argument can be made that racially these were "kin" to Israel, genetically, they were twisted. God always has a reason for His commands. We should never second guess the ways of God.
And the religious leaders of today want to say that God doesn't know what He's talking about.
Shame on them
Here's where it gets interesting. Let's see what God has to say about this subject
None of you shall approach any one near of kin to him to uncover nakedness. I am the Lord. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father, which is the nakedness of your mother; she is your mother, you shall not uncover her nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife; it is your father's nakedness."
Holy cow! The Bible just gave us the explanation of what happened to Noah.
The Bible will interpret itself, if given a chance
Canaan was the result of incest. That's why the Children of Israel were never to intermarry or mix with them. Just like the Moabites and Ammonites, they were a cursed race from the start due to incest.
The Israelites were told to destroy all the Canaanites before occupying the Promised Land. But they didn't. Joshua 16:10 tells us that the Ephraimites didn't drive out the Canaanites and they dwelt in the midst of them, "but have become slaves to do forced labor." Joshua 17:13 says that the tribe of Manasseh did the same thing, kept the Canaanites in their midst, "but when the people of Israel grew strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor, and did not utterly drive them out."
Just like God had said, through Noah, centuries before. Canaan became the slave of Shem.
Isn't God's word wonderful!
Ten for God
Zero for the critics
How would you describe Adam and Eve's populating the earth?
And so Lot got drunk by his daughters so it was not his fault he had sex with them. Just like a drunk driver is not at fault, as he was drunk, for killing other drivers or pedestrians. Good logic. Answer that in your own words if you can, not eternal cut-and-paste.
