Abrahamic religions have a conundrum. One the one hand, they would like to do away with the bloody troublesome parts of the Old Testament. On the other hand, if they do away with any parts of the bible, that may start a process that won’t finish until all of it has been done away with. Therefore, the Abrahamic religions are stuck with the Old Testament passages as bloody as they are.
Religious practitioners then become very adept at skipping over the bad parts and concentrating on the good parts. It is amazing how bible-study lesson plans skip and leapfrog throughout the bible trying to put together a story about how God is all loving and kind.
