An example of human stupidity.

Some skeptics point to this verse, where Lot offered two of his daughters to a pack of homosexuals who were at his door, threatening to rape Lot’s two male visitors. Of course, the homosexuals did not take him up on his offer, and the visitors (angels) were very capable of protecting themselves. The Bible does not hide human stupidly; it reveals it so that we will not make the same mistakes. We are told that all of Scripture was written for our instruction (see Rom. 15:4; 2 Tim. 3:16). So, be instructed. If rapists come to your door, don’t offer them your daughters. That’s crazy.

Genesis 19:8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.

    Thanks for the reminder! I think we get so used to the idea that the saints in the Bible “always” did the right thing that pointing out their stupidity helps us not only to not do it but also helps us to forgive ours.

    What is really crazy is the Angels didn’t stop the gang of men from harming Lot’s daughters. God just doesn’t make angels with any moral fiber I guess. It is a shame that the Angels didn’t use this as a teaching moment. Also this story shows that God was wrong in thinking that Lot was righteous. No reasonable person would give their daughters up to be raped.
