You are quite correct Saltheart!
The whole fictional account is flawed in many ways, including the outright promotion of the acquisition of wealth and property as being good!
In fact, the account goes to great lengths to say that GOD ALMIGHTY blesses with MATERIAL wealth.
So how does that translate to Witnesses in JW org today? The GB keep saying that it is NOT the personal aquisition of status or wealth that proves one's value in God's eyes?
And as you point out, the ACTUAL people are not important, it is just their "value" as a commodity that is highlighted (applies to both the children and the slaves etc)
BUT, this "factual biblical account" is supposed to prove that "Jehovah is Loving??"
Why did Jehovah even need to place a wager or have this bet with Satan anyway??
