Bible, Day 19, And what’s wrong with these people?

Genesis 16:1-18:33

Summary: God keeps making promises and we see the beginning of the end for Sodom and Gomorrah

16:11-12 – Um, is this a good thing? It seems he will live a hard life? And did Hagar want to have JJ Abram’s babies? Sarai is just going to pass her along like a good book to share? I guess that is a yes, since Hagar started to despise Sarai, although this version of the Bible isn’t exactly clear what Hagar is despising Sarai for- but one could guess.

17 – I like how cutting off the foreskin/genital mutilation had borne the PC euphemism of circumcision.  And why is God so fickle about what he wants as offerings for adoration, promises and covenants? Is it so hard to just promise? What is God doing on his side? Why is his word taken at face value? How in the fuck is genital mutilation of any benefit of him other than his rather large ego? I guess that’s it?

17:12 – “For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be [genitally mutilated] including those born in your household or [a slave]” Ah, euphemisms.

Also, Abram to Abraham, and Sarai to Sarah.

18:20 – So do gods have to physically go places to hear things? He can’t hear all things or know all things from some perch somewhere? 28-33 – OH MY GOD, WHO WROTE THIS SHIT030
