Ken Temple lies about his Bible and is caught red-handed

At BloggingTheology, the lying Christian propagandist Ken Temple was caught lying about his own Bible when asked about concubinage and slavery. Like a typical Christian hypocrite, Temple was criticizing the Quran for allowing concubinage. When confronted with the fact that the Bible also allowed it, Temple attempted to lie like most Christian apologists. First, he was shown the example Numbers 31:18 (the Midianite virgin girls taken by the Israelites). He responded that they were taken as “wives”, not as slaved (as if that makes it better). Next, he attempted to explain David and Solomon’s numerous concubines by claiming that God did not approve of the practice but allowed it. This is where he was caught red-handed. God did not actually condemn the practice of concubinage. Indeed, in regards to David, the only sin he was criticized for was how he dealth with Uriah. In other words, keeping concubines was NOT condemned as a sin! See the comments below.

  • God allowed David and Solomon to do that, but God did not approve of it. 1 Kings 11 is clear that God is displeased with Solomon’s sins of multiplying wives and concubines. God split the kingdom of Israel into 2 parts because of Solomon’s sins.

    Except it was not like your god and the little Midianite virgin girls.

    “Have you allowed all the women to live?” he asked them. 16 “They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the Lord in the Peor incident, so that a plague struck the Lord’s people. 17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.” (Numbers 31:15-18)

    “God allowed David and Solomon to do that, but God did not approve of it. 1 Kings 11 is clear that God is displeased with Solomon’s sins of multiplying wives and concubines. God split the kingdom of Israel into 2 parts because of Solomon’s sins.”

    Oh, you are such a liar! Are you so shameless that you will lie about what your Bible actually says?

    Let’s read 1 Kings 11, shall we Pennywise son of Satan?

    “King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh’s daughter—Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. 2 They were from nations about which the Lord had told the Israelites, “You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods.” Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. 3 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and t/hree hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray.”

    So, it was about taking the foreign women as wives because they would lead Solomon astray that God was condemning, not the specific act of having concubines.

    Furthermore, later in the chapter, God even says that he will not take Solomon’s kingdom away during his life. Why? For the sake of his father, David, who also had numerous concubines!

    “Nevertheless, for the sake of David your father, I will not do it during your lifetime. I will tear it out of the hand of your son.”

    Notice again how God seems to really have a problem with punishing the children for the sins of their fathers.

    And as for David, we know he had concubines. So what did God say about David?

    “For David had done what was right in the eyes of the Lord and had not failed to keep any of the Lord’s commands all the days of his life—except in the case of Uriah the Hittite.” (1 Kings 15:5)

    WOW! So the only thing David was criticized for was his dealing with Uriah. But as for the KILLINGS, the CONCUBINES, etc.? Meh. David “had done what was right…”

    You are a liar Pennywise. You are a child of Satan, the father of all lies.

    @ Kennywise I mean Ken

    First off the Jews have concubines, ol:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilegesh

    Abraham(as) had a concubine, as did Jacob(as) (2 in fact), and neither had any condemnation. As did David(as), as did Solomon(as). pausing here the text of Exodus 21:7-10 says NOTHING about taking concubines it ONLY refers to wives which are a different status. NEITHER does 1 Kings 11 as again it says WIVES not concubines:

    as did YHWh’s hordes rampaging the Levant. As did ALL these people:

    This is REALLY a losing battle to fight. Just because you adopted Roman paganism (again) to determine your relationships don’t try to condemn what God has allowed.

    “the Midianite virgin girls taken by the Israelites). He responded that they were taken as “wives”, not as slaved (as if that makes it better).”

    in a hypothetical scenario, lets say that a hebrew found a beautiful woman and let her go because she was not pleasing. now what does “pleasing ” mean?

    sexually
    unable to have a kid ?

    lets say the woman is dumped.

    now what ? the text does not say that she received a certificate of divorce. this means her status has not reached the level of jewish wife.

    her job then is to find

    1. a job
    2. prostitution
    3. another man

    from 1-3 which one is more likely ?
