    Nevertheless that is the position I am taking. So for all intents and purposes that is my position.

    It can also mean there is mutual agreement, given the details.
    Which could be why the issue never has to come up.
    It depends upon what the issue is about.
    That's the topic for the discussion, imo.

    I'd want to know why it was inserted.

    I can see why you like this idea. It means you can avoid all the horrible parts in the Bible and just stick with the bits you like.
    The problem with this approach is that YOU have to decide which bits you like.
    That makes YOU the moral judge, which means God is not.
    It also throws suspicion on the bits you like and puts you at odds with other people who like different bits.

    If you believe the Bible is the word of God, then I really can't see any justification for ignoring the bits you don't like.
    And God might be very upset with your judgements !

    I think your attitude highlights the whole Holy Scripture problem.
    If God wants to communicate with us, he should find a better medium than some ancient Hebrew stories.

    Agreed

    But to add , jesus also rebelled against god , after his so-called resurrection .

    Excellent point. God is like a useless lifeguard on a beach who watches a child drowning and does nothing to help.
