The problem is not what you say.

The problem is with Solomon who wrote Proverbs 9:10 and a lot more of the Bible. He wrote 3,000 proverbs and 1,000 songs while he was in the midst of 1,000 debaucheries with his 700 wives and 300 concubines. He is not one of my favorite people. Only afterward does he say in Ecclesiastes that "all is vanity and vexation of spirit." Yet, he wrote some of the most beautiful passages in the Bible. How could such an amoral person write this?

Ecclesiastes 3
1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
