Exodus
2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.
2:12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

Genesis 38:8-10 NASB
Then Judah said to Onan,“Go in to your brother’s wife, and perform your duty as a brother-in-law to her, and raise up offspring for your brother.” Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. But what he did was displeasing in the sight of the LORD; so He took his life also.

Ok, I suppose I shouldn't be laughing, but it's still funny. I can be confused about the Bible, but I understand it was written in a time when incest was probably more common and accepted. The Bible does have some excellent rules to live by though. Whether it was truly God's word, or very wise with a desire and intent on making humans civilized and moral, I don't know, but over the ages, the good book has helped many survive and endure life's most difficult obstacles and hardships. Here's one that I think is worth remembering:

1 John 4: 7,8:

"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."
