There are many parts of the story we are reading (scripture) that make us uncomfortable. I believe it is not the actual story but that is conflicts with a preconceived notion of what we expect.
I’ll again wager that most of us have been told what we believe, we believe what we have been told/taught. THEN we have taken that understanding and applied it (or at lest tried to) the stories we read. So, yes, many have read the Bible. Do you see where I am going with this?
Can this God really be my God? It can unsettle us, especially when read through our current understanding western thinking eyes. This will be an interesting thought to ponder. Elohim said let Us make man in Our image. So maybe another look, a fresh look, an open look, and we might get a different glimpse into the Image we were created…
