No, that’s great. I’m encouraged that you want to go to scripture for the answer. Too often we as Christians end up relying on our feelings, or our logic, or “the way it’s always been” – instead of going to God’s Word.
Sometimes it’s inconvienient, sometime it hurts, sometimes it seems unfair – but God is always right. Jesus had an overwhelmning devotion to the scripture, and I have a feeling that Jesus Christ – “God in the flesh” – would have some insight on this.
