When we study scripture, we must approach it in context and with discernment. It is important that we ask the right questions and challenge the areas that do not seem to align with the loving God that we know. We must consider that divine truths have been written by the hands of humans, who will make mistakes. In times before our own, humans knew less than they know today, in a world less evolved; leaving the only translation of the Word of God to be based on what their experiences were and the social norms and culture of their time. Some things make absolutely no sense to us in the modern world that we live in today. Others, we take with us until the ends of time. We offer love and grace for knowledge and experience that was not available to biblical scholars due to living in a different time and welcome the old ways of understanding into new loving life; hearing God still speaking in the world today. There is a loving God, who equally loves and cherishes each life that walks this earth.
