I completely understand where your coming from and those two scriptures are not the only one’s that have been corrupted by man. I believe that many
of the versions passed down have intentionally been changed and you can only guess who is behind it all. I believe in the old testament as far as it
is translated correctly and at one point there is no question in my mind that parts of the old testament have been mistranslated.
But over all if you look at the bible and you follow the prophecies of many of the prophets like Isaiah and such you will see that things of our time
have been foretold including things of the past. This did not come from man but God, most of the bible is the word of God and I completely agree with
you and with mystiq about the bible being altered to make God look bad and evil. That was exactly the plan of Satan and it has seemed to turn people
away and worked. Not all of the bible has been altered/ mistranslated most of it is good and accurate but there are a lot of parts found in the old
testament that have undoubtedly been intentionally changed to destroy people’s faith in God.
Follow the words of Jesus Christ in the new testament, he describes what kind of God we have, the most loving God possible, his love for us is greater
than we could ever have for anyone being human in the flesh. Greater than we have for our children and loved one’s.
Jesus even said. Who among you would give your son a stone if he asked for bread? Something like that, then said. If you who are wicked men know how
to love your own children how much more would your Father in Heaven love you and give to you what you ask. Jesus taught love in the purest form
possible, if you read the New Testament you could see that it is love in the purest form and that is how God is, exactly how Jesus taught us to be and
how he lived his life. He forgave everyone even those who killed him, no man has a greater love than to lay his own life down for his friends. In
which he happily did for us because he loves us so much.
My point is this, there are many faults in the Old Testament that are there intentionally to to destroy the bible and make God look evil. That has
been the intent of Satan from the very beginning, destroying the word of God and the faith of men. You really need to overlook a few of the scriptures
that are undoubtedly wrong. You and I both know that a loving God would never use those words and make those commandments because we know what is
right and what is wrong and clearly what was said in those scriptures is not of God and wrong. Those scriptures have been corrupted and only Satan
would want us to murder, kill, destroy and commit incest etc.
God is full of continual Love,
Long suffering towards men,
Continually forgiving and blessing us,
Even those who commit evil are being looked after,
God is the most merciful, loving being that could ever exist.
Jesus had written that God feeds all things, the very breathe of air and of life is a continually a gift from God to man. He shines light in darkness
and gives to all of us freely. All things we have are so easily overlooked at times and taken for granted they all come from God. He only wants us to
be happy and make the right choices in life so we can someday live with him again. He is there for us always, so don’t let a few scriptures get you
down and turn you against God because of corrupt men who intentionally ruined parts of the Old Testament in order to destroy faith in God. Skip the
parts that you know deep down inside are not of God and move to the light and good parts.
The New Testament is full of love and a message of truth and peace. You know as well as I know deep down inside what is right, I have struggled myself
many times with these same things but I do know God is there for us because my prayers are continually answered by him and I feel his protection and
love. I have been amazingly lucky in my lifetime and was saved from accidents that should have taken my life. Some people call those things miracles
NDE’s change your life forever, I know that he is there and exists and I leave you with that testimony.
IF at the end of the day you just don’t want any part of the good parts of the bible in any way shape or form but you still do believe in God and in
a loving God then pray to him continually and he will be with you and bless you. Just don’t give up on goodness and God.
God be with you.
Love and Light.
