If you are referring to these passages. That is not rape. A man can hold a woman without raping her. If you have a father, husband, boyfriend, or close male friend, are you going to accuse them of rape if they hold you. These folks try and distort these passages by replacing the phrase “lay hold on her” with ‘seize’ or ‘rape’ to give the impression that the Bible condones rape. The phrase “lay hold on” is transliterated from the Hebrew word taphas which basically means to hold. That is the primary meaning There are four different words for the word “seize “ in Hebrew... Yarash- to seize, dispossess, take possession off, inherit, disinherit, occupy, impoverish, be an heir Laqach - to take, get, fetch, lay hold of, seize, receive, acquire, buy, bring, marry, take a wife, snatch, take away nasha- to beguile, deceive Katecho - to hold back, detain, retain You do the math. If you’re going to have sex with a man, the chances are he’s going to hold you. Am I right? Does that mean you’ve been raped? Of course not. In a couple of different bibles they go even further than using the wrong word “seize”. They just come straight out with “rape”. That’s nasty. Be aware. Do your own research, use your own world experience. and above all, use common sense (before they try to ban it) This is the logic, the Bible is the word of God The Bible condones rape God condones rape Therefore theists condone rape Don’t fall for it, even if you keep it to yourself. They are atheist anti-theists, who are desperate to kill any notion of God. If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; 29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekelsof silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.
