I'm not "cherry picking" based on what I like or don't like. I have an understanding of context. There's a huge difference. I'm not going to argue with you about this anymore. I'm not "cherry picking" things, I'm speaking truth based on knowledge of context. That's not even close to being the same thing, and I don't appreciate your judgemental attitude. You don't know a thing about me, so don't presume to have me pegged based on one thing you disagree with. Edit: I see now that you aren't a believer, so I'm definitely not going to argue with you about something you know very little about. I've taken multiple college level courses on studying the context and culture and meaning of the old testament, so I think I know a bit more about it than you. You should do some more learning before you come in swinging with claims that make no sense.
