The only Sin Onan committed And God Struck Him Dead.

Genesis 38:8-10 then Judea said to onan sleep with your brothers wife and fulfil your duty to her as a brother in law to raise up off spring for your brother.

But onan knew the child will not be his so whenever he slept with his brother's wife he spilled his semen to the ground to keep from providing off spring for his brother.

10: what he did was wicked in the Lord's sight so the Lord struck him dead.

To me in morden day sense I will say that onan committed the sin of masturbation or maybe he wasn't willing to reproduce for his late brother, and thinks he could constantly Sleep with his wife and this led God to anger.

Now let's assume onan actually committed two sins. Remember we are not trying to judge Onan and also believe me God is always justified in everything.

So what could possibly have happened in the case of onan?

Well according to the passage if I were to understand this in the best possible light, I will say that onan committed the sin of masturbation. If not what else could spilling of seed mean?

My take on this Or should i say that God Struck onan because he was a rapist. Or am I twisting the Bible Just to aliviate my conscience and have adequate time in the bathroom when deep down my mind is telling me that onan actually committed the sin of masturbation.

Well onan case he didn't love his brother's wife, instade of putting her away he kept on sleeping with her,but didn't want to have kids with her, thus he pulled and prayed And his seed spilled on the ground.
