....what the heck have I gotten myself into . Its something me & my jw sis are doing together...but separately. In our own private time. She gave me this list that you're s'posed to write the date you read each section, about 3-4 chapters each night. I slacked for the past 3 days (not gonna tell her that)...now I'm up to Genenis 28. HoLY CRAP...am I missing something??! The whole friggen thing shows God as a little brat (please god do not strike me with thunder for saying that ). He kept killing people! Its so weird to imagine the the 2nd set of people had a feud & one murdered the other. Was sin that quick? Cain killed Abel out of jealousy...it doesnt seem true. Lot's wife peeked back & was turned to salt...then his 2 daughters did the dirty deed with him while serving him wine so they could make babies. EWWWWW Oh, check out this link if you want to see a comic's HILARIOUS description of Lot's life.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0r7syc1BSg (can somebody post this as a clickable link? the language is a tad raunchy, you've been warned )
As a sidenote, in Genesis 21....Abraham threw Isaac a party on the day he was weaned. Check out the history on that and find out what other religions believe about that (I checked out the Jewish & Baptist websites). IT WAS A BIRTHDAY PARTY.
I am sincerely doing this believe it or not. I don't believe the Bible (duh, obviously)...but I have never read it & kinda feel like a hypocrite. My husband said there's a way to read it, not cover to cover, but starting from 'start to finish'...does that make sense? Am I supposed to find a different book of the bible to start at?
