the bible is a letter from the creator to mankind. It highlights the importance of Jehovah Gods Universal Soverighty, the only means for salvation through Jesus Christ and the hope for the earth by means of Gods Kingdom.

Here are some bible stories that caused me to question it.

The first Jew, Abraham married his own half sister Sarah and he had sex with her for years and years until they had a child of incest named Isaac. Yet the Jews bible fails to condemn this incestuous sex. In fact, it calls the incestuous man 'the father of faith'!

Lot, another Jew, got drunk and had sex with both of his daughters, knocking them both up with two sons named Moab and Ammon. Yet the Jews bible failed to condemn him. In fact, it called him 'righteous Lot'!

David the Jewish king, committed adultery with a woman, Bathsheba, then he murdered her husband Uriah, a loyal soldier in his army. The Jews bible calls David,'a man after Jehovah's own heart'!

There is something drastically wrong with the Jews bible, a book that praises men who commit incest with their sister, drunken incest with their daughters, adultery, and murder!!!

certainly shows the imperfections of man, and the temptations of the devil, Jehvovah allowed a lot for the whinning whinging Jews, in fact it is God himself that calls them a hard necked lot. Sarah was Abraham's half sister, and back in those days I guess it was not uncommon as man continued to produce his own, it was not disapproved by God, and the line of the promised seed came through these two faithful worshipers of God. Gen 3:15, Luke 21:22, Rom 15:4; Acts 24:14.

The bible tell of the protection of the promised seed, that was of primary importance, we may not understand why God allowed some things, but no injustice or evil is ever in God heart. Deut 32:4

Most importantly it was Jesus Christ that constantly quoted from the Hebrew scriptures, showing his approval of all that was written. Matt4:4-10; Luke 4:17-21; Luke 24: 27, 44,45.
Surely we cant claim to be the reader of hearts. Prov 21:2;

Adam married a woman out of his own flesh.

Cain and Able probably married their sisters.

pharaohs of Egypt married their own brothers and sisters.

Cleopatra married her own brother.

I wasn't until the Law came in with Moses, that incest became a... sin.

And God brought it in because of the weakening of the human gene, because of in breeding, and the break down of the gene due to sin coming into the world.

The fact that Noah got drunk , as well as Lot, was not a practice, these men were in the habit of doing, but was after great stressful events in their lives, and just shows Gods word is true, when he says "no man is good all the time and never sins."

David too, was confronted with his sin, he too was not perfect, but unlike Saul who tried to hide his sin and present a good image, David took the counsel and asked Gods forgiveness.
He was forgiven, but his was punished, and his heart was broken when his son revolted against him, and was killed.
Who could not fail to hear the anguish in his words " Absalom , Absalom my son , my son, Oh may I have died , I myself instead of you."

It also shows the authenticity of the Bible as the Word of God, because it pulls no punches and just tells the honest truth.

We are all sinners in need of the shed blood of Jesus Christ our Lord.
