I love the Bible! It is an amazing book! Parts of the Old Testament read like a soap opera and the prophesies are just amazing. And the New Testament is so wonderful! My favorite woman in the Old Testament is Jael - you will just have to read and find out why and I also like a woman who is in one of the apocryphyl books of the Bible - Judith. I have not read all of the apocryphya yet, but have read some just to read the stories and some of it I can see why it is not included in the canon of the Bible because it does seem different, but I really liked the story of Judith. and Jael. They were very faithful and strong women. I like Ruth a lot too. And Rahab.
As far as Lot is concerned, from what I recall, he and Abraham split up and Abraham let Lot chose which way to go and Lot went in the direction of the better pasture land (someone please correct me if I have mixed this up with some other story) and Lot wound up living in Sodom which was an evil city. So, he was living in corruption. Abraham wanted Lot saved out of there because they were family and I suppose he cared for Lot, but as is shown by the story, Lot and his family had been corrupted by living in such a corrupt city.
...be strengthened with power through His Spirit into the inner man, that Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be full of strength to apprehend with all the saints what the breadth and length and height and depth are and to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God. Eph. 3:16-19
