Saw this on reddit this morning.
You are assuming, apparently, that Christians read the Bible. Not so much. If they did, there would be many fewer of them around. Your quote is taken from the Pentateuch, which, I assure you, most Christians avoid quoting, lest they sound like raving lunatics.
Of course Deuteronomy is the Torah of the Hebrew Scriptures. You'd be best addressing that question to Orthodox Jews, not Christians.
Now, for homework, go and research what the general treatment of rape was in the nomadic tribes of the time in that part of the world. Then consider whether Deuteronomy was an improvement.
Humanity has learned about ethics and about God slowly, in gradual steps. The Bible is in part a history of that developing understanding.
It makes little sense to point out how Pythagoras was wrong on points. Of course he was! What's remarkable is that Pythagoras made advances over others at the time, and some of those advances and especially that way of thinking is worth learning from and remembering. Humanity has learned math and science in gradual steps, too.
current price of silver in us 23.70 an ounce X 50 = 1185.
ah Professor Robert. You escaped the other thread without answering my question. SO I will hijack this thread and ask you again.
Based on the vast molestation coverup perpetrated by the Catholic church and the Vatican, do you feel it should be dismantled?
Meant to post this link.....Do watch the video.
Seems like “Professor” (?) Roberts picks and chooses his morals from the Bible. Well why don’t you take your own advice Rob –
“Of course Deuteronomy is the Torah of the Hebrew Script. You’d best address that question to Orthodox Jews, not Christians”
Well it seems what you’re saying is –the Torah isn’t relevant. If the Torah’s not relevant then:– Genesis isn’t relevant. If Genesis isn’t relevant – then original sin isn’t relevant. If original sin isn’t relevant, then Jesus isn’t relevant. If Jesus isn’t relevant, then Catholicism isn’t relevant. If Catholicism isn’t relevant, then you’re wasting your time and life!
You only live once. This is not a dress rehearsal for a big after party. Once you past on, you will no longer exist. Stop wasting your time defending folklore and bronze-age myths. Live your life.

Perhaps our understanding would be greatly improved if these supernatural beings would make an appearance every few hundred years or so. Verifiable evidence is a wonderful thing for those seeking understanding.
don't you know that religious love to pick and choose bits of the bible?
