A REALLY weird ethical dilemma of Marriage and Incest

Postby Philip » Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:24 am

OK, according to Scripture, once a person is married, he is to remain married - except in very specific circumstances.

And incest is an abomination.

What to do?

What are the odds of this happening?

Just a guess. I figured it's about the same odds as successfully navigating an asteroid field.

Yep. Can't imagine such a cruel thing to find out. Better now than after they have a child with some server genetic-caused deformity.

As for the asteroid avoidance - wonder how those aliens traveling at the speed of light manage to avoid them? y:-? Maybe they hit the brakes and swerve? What?

lets see the red flags:

1) born on the same day

2) look a lot alike

3) both adopted

4) have a lot in common

I think BigHamster may have been referring to this:
So they made their father drink wine that night, and the firstborn went in and lay with her father; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. 34 On the following day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine tonight also; then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve [ag]our family through our father.” 35 So they made their father drink wine that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. 36 Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. 37 The firstborn bore a son, and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. 38 As for the younger, she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi; he is the father of the [ah]sons of Ammon to this day.

Genesis 19:33-38
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Adam and Eve's children certainly had sex with their siblings - who else? Unless...

Actually, I was referring to the possibility that we could all be the progeny of Noah's children after the flood. That would make us all ~50th cousins.

Consider the earth shattering implications of this....... I could borrow $50 from you all and never pay it back. After all, what are cousins for :-)
