I remember growing up preparing for the number 2 talk and reading over the verses. One time I had a chapter in Joshua to read. I started reading and I was like "WTF? God wanted to kill thousands of children and babies and animals but keep the "virgins?" Yeah, ok.
I was only 12 at the time but I got it. It was apparent to me this was not inspired by "God."
If you have 30 minutes, watch this 3 part serious. And get ready to wet yourself.
