It is very important to understand the economy that is how life was lived versus the ideal of how life was to be lived of any given culture and people The Jews were too live under God s economy This was in stark contrast to what they had seen in Egypt and the natural bend of humans to live No one is condemned to Hell before they are born but to prevent a nation from having a number of children born fatherless this statute was put into place to convince the male and female to not engage is sex and produce a child that will be subject to this statute

This is a very harsh rule, but what ever God commands must be GOOD, by definition. If He commanded me to kill all my neighbors, I would have to do it. If He commanded my neighbors to kill me and my family, I would gladly present myself and my family to them and smile with joy whilst they cut off our heads or stone us, what ever seems appropriate to our loving, but just God.
