However, you chose to see the Torah events as good/bad, which is the first step to misinterpreting the text. Take a position, what would you have done. Otherwise, you are seeing everything at arm’s length, as opposed to taking it to heart.

I disagree with you here, Bob. My approach is backed up by Nachmanides, as he states in his famous letter:

Torah should always be learned diligently, so you will be able to fulfill it’s commands. When you arise from your learning reflect carefully on what you have studied, in order to see what in it that you can be put into practice.
