And what about the death-penalty for adultery?
It reflects a zeal for thoroughness in “purging this evil from the midst of you”, removing threats to the all-important marriage relationship.
It reflects someone who is incapable of thinking of a solution less violent and barbaric.
I don't recall of any "Gods" ever writing any laws...
I have heard of "men" writing laws and claiming it was under
God's instruction, but that's something less than an
actual God taking pen to paper.
This! Also even though the scriptures are metaphoric and always pertaining to inner things, our inner Michael defeats our inner dragons. Nonetheless there may be places where astronomy, astrology, past cycles and occult information, (there are a few dark things in there as well) and there may be twists of words, that don't express things clearly, on purpose by Rome along with some twists on morality, again by Rome, or the Jewish Scholars, but all going back to Sumar/Annanuki stuff.
So, this could be a set of rules from the slavers/ptb, but I can also see some inner meanings and metaphors as well.
For Mother, is the right hemisphere of the brain, the subconscious, and the pineal. Father is the left hemisphere, the conscious and more ego based part of us, and the pituatary. The offspring is The Son, or the flowering forth of the thalamus region, with the veil rending, and the son of man becomes the Son of God.
So, here could very well be a series of warnings about allowing your inner work and diretion to be polluted or nade unwhole, by other ideas, contamination akin to adultery. And so we are to go within. The wedding of the male and female is to be inner seeking and doing the work one came to do, overcoming the body suit , ie beast and gaining understanding, compassion, temperance, and love/wisdom. And overcoming ego. Shrugging off the temptress, temptations and the outer programs.
So I can see both some twists from PTB AND inner meanings here.
However, aside from being faithful, caring about making others happy more than self, and never harming another, abandoning family, causing such pain and suffering amongst spouse or children, and all that it means to grow up, which is a true integrity virtue, the harsh punishments never ever came from God. God is Love, only SATURN/SATAN, harms or smites.
And the freedom to leave dysnfunctional relationships is also God given. Inner wisdom reveals that.
