For a psych paper a friend had topic of incest and we got into deep discussions about it. And we got into religions view of it. I talked about how as catholics incest is taboo, pointed out Leviticus and said i would search from more.
But then the conversation went into Adam and Eve paradox. The resources and previous discussions on the net weren’t very helpful. In general it seems to be roughly this answer
scroll down to the incest question. And there are so many things wrong with it. Gods law doesn’t change i thought, but according to this it does. he’s okay with incest then not okay then okay again? And according to this the genetic decay began from noah which means shouldn’t that incest not have been okay and there would have been major problems?
My only quam is that in the past incest is okay but it’s not okay now why?
A secondary question, how come king David can have multiple wives and concubines and be a “key child of god” but today we can only have one partner? 2 Samuel 5:13 which is direct contradiction to Genesis 2:24 and Deut 17:17.
Sorry about my constant questions but i tend to think alot and observing answers on this forum helps me deal with my own questions.
