It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday!!! The Bible is a book of morals to lead one’s life by, right? Well, let’s take a closer look at those morals found in Genesis 25:6
“But while he (Abraham) was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.” – Genesis 25:6
There are a couple of morals to unpack from this verse. First, Abraham has concubines outside of his wives. This is all approved by God as Abraham is adored by God. Without Abraham, the Bible doesn’t exist! None of what follows after Genesis is possible without Abraham! God approves of Abraham’s taking of concubines to spread his seed. That’s moral number one passed along in this verse.
Second, Abraham gives gifts to the sons of his concubines and then sends them away so they are not interfering with Isaac. Think about this. Abraham is forcing his other sons to leave the land because Isaac is his favorite. This is moral number two. Pick a favorite son and fuck over the rest.
A book of morals? Nope. Read the Bible and you quickly learn these ‘morals’ are horrible ways to lead one’s life.
