Notice the similarities between Judges Chapter 19 and Genesis chapter 19? In Genesis chapter 19 two angels arrived in Sodom in the evening and they planned to spend the night in the town square. But Lot insisted they go with him and spend the night at his house. Then, in the middle of the night the men of Sodom came to Lot's house to have sex with the two angels. Lot offered his two virgin daughters instead... see the unfortunate similarities? Social protocol of the time - protecting a house guest at any cost - unfortunately carried more authority in Judges Chapter 19 than God's law and moral convictions. Obviously this is an extreme case in Judges Chapter 19.... Yet, is it possible that in today's world social protocol of our time can sometimes carry more authority than moral convictions? Will we stand tall today and protect someone when this is the case? We will stand up for moral convictions over social protocol today? An image is below for Judges Chapter 19 verses 16 & 17 - "That evening an old man came home from his work in the fields. He was from the hill country of Ephraim, but he was living in Gibeah in the territory of Benjamin. When he saw the travelers sitting in the town square, he asked them where they were from and where they were going." Elenora

This perfectly illustrates the nature of the Christian Bible as being a collection of beautifully presented fairy stories, each with a moral purpose and sound advice on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

It is not a collection of fairy stories. How do you know that they did not actually happen? There are lots of historical evidence that prove the true existence of the Bible and of its stories. And yes, it does teach morals and values; more reason why it is a good book and not of blasphemies.

Can it! The Christian Bible is just one of the many collections of exhortations grabbed by religious fanatics to try to control everyone else.

Bibles (be they Jewish, Christian, Islamic, or anything else) are just the written thoughts of a few individuals, as interpreted many years later by other individuals. They have nothing whatever to do with truth.
