Hi meekerdb  

Picking and choosing can sometimes be incorrect. 

When you try to find the meaning of a verse from the Bible, 
ideally you should find the meaning from the Bible as a whole.

There are some errors in fact in the Bible, but IMHO it is  
inerrant with regard to faith and practice. By inerrant, I mean that 
it is completely consistent along those lines.  You have to take it as 
a whole. 

By which you really mean that one must use their own moral sense to pick and 
choose a reasonable subset of ethical advice, which they can then claim that 
God commands. 

The Israelites were all waiting anxiously at the foot of the 
mountain, knowing that Moses had had a tough day negotiating with 
God over the Commandments. Finally a tired Moses came into sight.

good news is that I got Him down to ten. The bad news is that 
adultery's still banned."
