Also, this was not God approved. There are many "sins" that happened before the Mosaic law went into effect where God did not punish the person. There was not as of yet a written code.
I'm beginning to see a familiar religious theme, especially a JW theme: The "Truth" isn't always true, cause it's not 'new or 'current'light. Mosaic Law MUST have been the NEWLIGHT...back then. Common Human Sense, wasn't good enough?
Because something is recorded there, that doesn't mean that God approved of it. Lot's daughters schemed to get Lot drunk and to have sex with him. If anyone was to be punished, then it would have been them.
Shame on God! Didn't He think people of faith might NEED accurate info to base their lives on?
How do you know that they did not get him extremely drunk, cover their faces, and then come to him?
Extremely drunk ? Like falling down drunk? I've seen a lot of drunks, they have a difficult time being amorous, ladies just have to lay there, guys...have to want it. Sorry, no matter how ugly, that's how things work.
Noah was a drunk, too. All the others were drowned. A common theme.
This was the distinction Peter made—not that Lot was perfect, but that he remained uncontaminated by the actions that were prevalent throughout Sodom. Like Christians today who strive to walk in the light, though they are imperfect (1 John 1:5-10), Lot was a righteous man, who also made some memorable mistakes.
So, "he remained uncontaminated", I guess Sodomites did not rape their own kids? "Mistakes"...memorable mistakes !!!??? That's special...
No one is justifying Lot's sins or his daughters. Their sin was recorded and what a shame that is for them.
Sorry. I know your faith is hanging on the Bible really being God's Word, but, don't ya' think a true god would make sure he was represented -- truly ?
It upholds Lot as someone respected by God. God sent his angels to save Lot and his family. Lot was spoken of as being righteous. He did some pretty bad things, but comparing him to the rest of the city, he was righteous.
I don't believe for one second...that not one righteous person could be found nor the idiotic assumption that 'EVERY man, from young to very old' surrounded these supposedly helpless angels to have sex with them. ALL of them were homosexual ?? Sounds a lot like The Flood, "not one righteous...", then, when God "saw what He did, He felt regret..."
What...was He drunk, too?
