I have no issue with the works as a text. It's very interesting, as we have a line of development we can see in a section of history for a group that's still around in the present day. Due to their nature we don't have a lot of writings from tribal peoples from ages past. But as far as morality... Look, in Exodus Moses takes God to task over his behavior. God and Moses makes it clear that the Plagues of Egypt happened so that God could show how powerful he is. He could have done it differently, but he purposefully hardens the heart of the Pharoah show he could demonstrate how powerful he is. And how does he do this? He kills kids. The first born of everyour family, that doesn't have the lambs blood on the door. The children of families that had very little idea, or no control, over the treatment of the Hebrew in the tale. God kills children just to make a point. He didn't have to, that's true even in the story. But he does, again just to show how powerful he is. And when his chosen people enter a land he gave them, well there were already people there. Instead of telling them to move, or moving them himself, his chosen people are told to slaughter them. And then divide up the spoils between them. And those spoils include children, little girls. Children. Who are to be concubines for the conquerors. I don't like using the word evil. I really dont. It's got to much baggage. But the killing of children, the taking of children as slaves. That is something most of us can agree is evil. I don't see a moral lesson in that, not a good one anyway. The only redeeming element to the story is, the Exodus account is mythical. But being a tribute culture we can know that woman being part of the loot, probably happened. That Jesus said some nice stuff doesn't expunge this. It's still part of the text. And Jesus himself states that not one jot or tittle of it was changed. He meets with Moses, even. As an account of human development, I have no issue with any part of the works that make up the Christian Bible. As a work that claims to be a source of morality... it only works if you ignore most of it that runs against modern sensibilities.
