It's Old Testament.

Doesn't count, for Christianity that is.


If not for the foretelling of Jesus arrival in the old testament and his being of the line of David there would be no Christianity. Jesus showed respect for and taught the old law but others were fulfilled by his coming and no longer needed or do not apply to Gentiles.

The old testament does count.

Matthew 5:17-18 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished."

However, man had misinterpreted the Law and Gods will. The Pharisees also followed the Law, but they were hypocrites and they did not get it right. In Matthew 12, for example, Jesus heals a man and plucks the heads of grain to eat as his disciples were hungry.. on the Sabbath. The Pharisees question his actions, as these things were thought to be forbidden on the day of rest. He responds by telling them (among other things) that it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.

Love thy neighbor as yourself and all that.

Point being, I find the old testament extremely important for many reasons. Jesus followed God's will perfectly. My belief is that if I am to call myself a Christian, then I am to try my best to live life as Jesus did.. and Jesus did follow the Law.

This also comes to mind, upon reading the discussed passage in Deuteronomy.

Romans 14:22-23 “So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves. 23 But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.”

I would not ever find it okay in my heart to stone or kill a person. It is not an act of love, it does not come from faith.


So then, why the 180 degree change in the god of the OT, to the god in the NT? Apparently, Jesus DID'NT fulfill all of the law. He broke the Sabbath, he didn't stone people to death, he reached out and healed the ones the priests would have said were unclean, and Jesus got really, really, ticked off at the temple practices of animal sacrifice. Mad enough to make a whip and drive all the people AND animals out of there. He also quoted from the prophet Jeremiah, "if you had known what this means, that I desire MERCY and NOT SACRIFICE, you would NOT have condemned the innocent!" (the innocents were the animals).
All of the above were COMMANDED to be performed by YHWH.
If those were YHWH'S commands, and Jesus didn't do them, then how can he have fulfilled ALL the law of YHWH.
Oh, and one more thing....why are you listening to Paul? He's a false apostle. If you want to see the criteria for an apostle, then go read Acts. chp 1. Matthias replaced Judas. There were only ever supposed to be TWELVE apostles. Read Rev. 21 if you don't believe me. Paul would make 13.
Paul had the same evil spirit as YHWH....and Paul continued the whole blood sacrifice theme into the NT from the OT.
Jesus wasn't a blood sacrifice to appease his father's wrath. He was murdered by the corrupt priesthood, for challenging their power and control over the common people...namely through the whole animal sacrifice cult they started.
Do you want to know what his SOLE mission was? "To bear witness to the truth". That's straight from his own mouth.
Go read where Pilate is questioning him ( I think it's in Luke).
So, Jesus was MURDERED by the priesthood, for TELLING THE TRUTH and showing everyone WHAT GOD WAS REALLY, TRULY, like. THAT'S why he told the Pharisee's and Saducee's that they worshipped their father the DEVIL.
Well, who did the priests worship??? YHWH. Huh.....kinda telling, don't ya think?

Ummm....noooo....if not for Saul of Tarsus (aka Paul the false apostle), there would be no Christianity. Christians seem to think Jesus came to start a new religion. He didn't. That's all Paul's doing.
Jesus came to set the record straight on what the MOST HIGH God was truly like. That's why the god of the OT and the Father Jesus represented are so radically different.
Ask yourself something, if Jesus was constantly saying, "my words are not my own...and the works I do, the Father does through me"....then, why the heck did the Father, who actually was speaking and working through Jesus...all of a sudden change his tune into all this mercy, love, and kindness? YHWH was killing, smiting, annihilating folks/animals/children all over the dang place.
Either YHWH is an imposter (or made up by the corrupt priests), OR God is bipolar.

If those were YHWH'S commands, and Jesus didn't do them, then how can he have fulfilled ALL the law of YHWH.


Because YHWH said that the time would come when he would put the law in a man's inward parts:

[QUOTE]
"But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. -- KJV, Jeremiah 31:33

"And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. -- KJV, Jeremiah 31:34
[END QUOTE]

So, look at it this way. God puts the law in your DNA. So, you no longer have to follow some "ritual" to learn about the law. Jesus came with the law already inside him, just as God said would eventually happen. He came preaching "forgiveness" , again just like the LORD said he would. He ushered in the new season. Only some people recognized who Jesus really was,

[QUOTE]
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. -- KJV, John 1:1-14
[END QUOTE]

So, the WORD of God was made FLESH--law in the DNA--and walked about the earth as JESUS. Calling out his own to follow him. So, all those that also had the law in their inward parts recognized the truth, and followed Jesus.

[QUOTE]
"Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word." -- KJV, John 8:43

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him..." -- KJV John 8:44
[END QUOTE]

That same "murderer", however, was just YHWH. He told us he would stop murdering and start forgiving when the time came. But, not everybody understood. All didn't have the "law" in their DNA, yet. The new DNA would spread over time to more of the population, so that in the future, more people would understand. So, Jesus just left the "message" with men, and told them to "Preach the Gospel" to all the world. As the Gospel spreads, the new DNA also spreads, and those with the right DNA immediately recognize the truth in Jesus' message when they hear it, because it "matches" with what is already inside them.



So, Jesus was MURDERED by the priesthood, for TELLING THE TRUTH and showing everyone WHAT GOD WAS REALLY, TRULY, like. THAT'S why he told the Pharisee's and Saducee's that they worshipped their father the DEVIL.
Well, who did the priests worship??? YHWH. Huh.....kinda telling, don't ya think?


Well, you can't MURDER Jesus. He has eternal life. They thought they murdered him. Because they didn't understand. But, the disciples knew. So, basically, God let the Priests carry out their judgments, to show everybody what type of Priests they were. They got satisfaction from believing this man of God was really of no God since he couldn't even save himself from the cross. Those Priests didn't get to see Jesus raise from the dead. It was deliberately done, so that they would continue to walk in darkness, and remain clueless.

God wasn't ready for all to understand, just the chosen, remember.

So, can you pleeease tell me how YHWH is loving, patient, kind, keeps no record of wrongs....yada, yada (as Paul defines love)...and a murderer at the same time? (because god is LOVE...right?) While we're at it...why don't you tell me how Paul can call curses down on those who don't believe "his gospel"? Um, I don't think Jesus ever...and I mean EVER cursed anyone.
On top of that, YHWH had to murder his own son (or allow him to be), to placate his wrath to let the guilty go free. Whoo wee!!!
Such an awesome god! Seems a little incompetent in my book. Why all the theatrics anyway?
You know what I think? We DO have the "DNA" as you call it, of what is right and wrong, already indwelling us from birth.
It's the Cosmic law of Right and Wrong.

Can you honestly tell me what HIS message was, "san's Paul's crap"? I'm dead serious. Explain what Jesus said and did, with out Paul's BS. I really want to see what you come up with...really. Gospel means "good news" by the way. So, what was Jesus' good news?

Oh yes they did murder Jesus. He laid his life down, because he was able to take it back up again. He KNEW they were going to kill him.
Ask yourself this ONE HUGE important question...WHY did they kill him?? Scratch the indoctrination you've been fed....WHY did they want him dead? God didn't need to prove a point to a bunch of dumb arse priests who wanted to keep their power.
WHAT did Jesus do and say that spooked them so bad? You REALLY need to know the answer to that question. You also should find it on your own.

Jesus did things that demonstrated that men did not know everything. So, that men would understand that there was more to this world than that which they could see and understand with in their current state.

That was just to get their attention. Then he left the message that some would be saved, along with the "signs" that would indicate to those that could understand how to tell if a person was saved. By their actions, you can tell if they are not saved. By your own understanding, you can get peace knowing. You can't speed up, nor slow down the process. But, you can get mental peace just knowing what will be.

"But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. " -- KJV, Matthew 24:13

We still don't know everything. I'm sure back then they wondered about a lot, as well.
You haven't really answered the question. I know the "Christianese" answer. WHAT did Jesus actually teach that upset the priests? What did Jesus actually do, that upset them?
Christianity teaches that the scribes and Pharisee's were legalistic and teaching manmade traditions on top of the Mosaic law. That would be true. But, here's the kicker....YHWH WAS legalistic. There were so many laws, rules, orders of death for the slightest infraction, laws regarding the "clean and unclean"...etc., that the priests running the temple were doing EXACTLY what the Torah told them, along with the oral traditions they had passed down.
Go read the OT and see what I mean. Read Leviticus. That should give you an idea of how blood thirsty and legalistic YHWH was/is.
Then, here comes Jesus, who went against every single one of those said "laws". Jesus even contradicted the law of YHWH by saying things like, "you have heard it said, "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, but I say to you, do not resist him who is evil...." Just read Matthew Chp. 5. Most of that chapter is Jesus contradicting YHWH'S laws. So, how could Jesus have followed the law perfectly? He not only didn't follow them, he also taught the opposite of them.
Not only that, but Jesus REALLY ticked off the priests and scribes when he made a whip and drove all the people selling animals AND the animals out of the outer courts right before the Passover. If you read the different accounts in the gospels, this enraged the priests and elders.
Jesus totally flipped upside down, all the control the priests/elders had over the people. The reason so many were AMAZED at his teachings, was because it was totally antithesis to the laws of YHWH.
Which brings us back to the original OP.....stoning unruly children. Christians can perform all the apologetic mental gymnastics they want with it (and do), but bottom line is, THAT WAS A COMMAND from YHWH. Yet, the Father that Jesus represented was completely different in character. Jesus said, "if you've seen me, you've seen the Father". Not that he was "god in the flesh"....he was filled with the HS and the WORD of the Father dwelt in him. So, everything coming out of Jesus' mouth and every miracle he performed....was spoken/done by the Father. That's why Jesus constantly gave the credit to his Father.
So, tell me....how is the Father of Jesus the same as YHWH???

Oh, and something else to consider.....HOW could Jesus forgive sin, if he hadn't actually shed his blood on the cross yet?? Remember, the Christian doctrine (according to Paul), is that there is NO forgiveness unless you have accepted Jesus as your "lord and savior". There is NO forgiveness without the shedding of blood. (which ties into YHWH ordering the sacrifice of innocent animals and ties into Paul's "the blood of Jesus" cleansing us from our sin.
What about the water baptism of John the Baptist? Why was John baptizing people and they were being forgiven of their sin....BEFORE Jesus even came on the scene??? Now you understand that's why Jesus asked the Pharisee's the question, "was John's baptism from heaven or from men?"
He flipped it right back on them, because they wanted to know "by what authority was he doing these things?" What things? He was doing everything OPPOSITE to YHWH'S laws. John was baptizing with WATER....not telling people to go to the temple and sacrifice an animal. He was offering a DIFFERENT way to repent and be forgiven. Jesus NEVER condoned animals being sacrificed...he hung out with all the sinners/outcasts/women. He was compassionate on those YHWH would have rejected.
So, can you see WHY Jesus was so radical to the people??? Can you see WHY the chief priests and elders plotted to kill him?

YHWHs laws were never meant to be so rigid, man made them brutal

Jesus knew the laws and how they should be applied because He gave mankind the laws

a reply to: Raggedyman


I never said that. I said that there was forgiveness of sin, BEFORE he died on the cross. There are even instances in the OT where God offered forgiveness by simply repenting and turning back to God.
So, why the need for Jesus to be a blood sacrifice?
John was baptizing people who were repenting and they were being forgiven of sin. So, once again, why did Jesus need to be a blood sacrifice?
Which is what I was pointing out....Christianity makes it all about the cross and the "blood of Christ cleansing us from sin".
Then, you have Paul preaching nothing but grace...of which Jesus never taught or even used that word. Jesus taught TWO things...Love God with all of you, and love your neighbor as yourself. He said ALL the law and the prophets hinged on those two commandments.
I don't see a whole bunch of love in YHWH ordering a man to be stoned to death for picking up sticks on the Sabbath, or the genocide of whole groups of people...down to the infants and animals, as well. Oh, but if the Israelites saw a woman who was still a virgin, they could take them as spoils of war.
Or, how about Moses coming down from the mountain with the 10 commandments (one of which is "thou shall not kill/murder"), then because they worshipped the golden calf, this occurs....
Who is on God's side?" (Exodus Chapter 32 verse 26)

Moses asked, and the Levites stood beside him. He then ordered them to

"kill your brother, friend, and neighbor." (Exodus Chapter 32 verse 27)


He then announced that this was the day of the institution of the Levitical priesthood because by killing their brothers, friends, and neighbors,

"you have brought a blessing this day upon yourselves." (Exodus Chapter 32 verse 29)

Umm...ok, so it's ok to kill if YHWH orders you to. Just ignore that commandment "do not kill" when it's convenient to YHWH.




YHWHs laws were never meant to be so rigid, man made them brutal


See above, RM.




Jesus knew the laws and how they should be applied because He gave mankind the laws


Ohhhh....so, in the OT, Jesus commanded women stoned if caught in adultery OR given a bitter herb to drink and if her stomach swelled and rotted, she was guilty, breaker's of the Sabbath stoned to death, unruly children stoned to death, women to be raped by being forced into marriage after being taken as a spoil of war (after her whole family is slaughtered), animals to be slaughtered by the hundred of thousands to cover the sins of the people OR just because it was a sweet smelling aroma to YHWH.
I could go on and on.
Maybe it's you who should go read your bible. And I'm not your "gf".

Here's the paradox you have to figure out.

If YHWH says the time will come when all will be "forgiven" , even "all sin".

Then how can the previous law "eye for an eye" be maintained together with "forgiving".

Can you "forgive" someone, and still require "their eye for your eye" ?

YHWH said he would forgive. It was written in the LAW that the Pharisees had in their scriptures.

Yet, when JESUS came, and did exactly that, starting forgiveness, the Pharisees couldn't recognize that this was the same YHWH's law that was in their books already.

They had become so "tuned" to doing "rituals", that they forgot what the rituals were there for.

It can't, and no. That makes absolutely no sense...and it's not a paradox. It's ridiculous.

Oh yea, YHWH would forgive if you brought an innocent animal to the priests to butcher. Or, if you did everything he commanded...like kill, rape, and pillage.




Yet, when JESUS came, and did exactly that, starting forgiveness, the Pharisees couldn't recognize that this was the same YHWH's law that was in their books already.


LOL...no, they were ticked off that Jesus was hanging out with the very ones YHWH excluded (women, deformed people, those riddled with demons, tax collectors, sinners, etc.) And Jesus threw a HUGE wrench into their very lucrative animal sacrifice business at the temple.




They had become so "tuned" to doing "rituals", that they forgot what the rituals were there for.


NO, they were doing exactly what was commanded by YHWH in the Torah!
Here is what he told the priests/elders..........
John 8:42-47New King James Version (NKJV)

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”

The one's running the show, the Saducee's/Pharisee's/Scribes worshipped YHWH and followed his laws. Jesus just told them WHO that really was.




They had become so "tuned" to doing "rituals", that they forgot what the rituals were there for.


The rituals were put there BY YHWH. For goodness sakes, can't you see that the Father that Jesus represented is NOT YHWH?

Moses book of law was lost and that's not surprising given that Moses wouldn't have had printing presses while walking the desert for 40 years. 2 Kings 22 tells the lost book was latter found by a priest called Hilkiah in 639-609 BC but some scholars argue the deuteronomic code of deuteronomy differs in tone and narrative style from the preceding four books of the Pentateuch (Source), So I'd be suspicious of Deuteronomy being recreated from the minds of politically motivated priests given that even Genghis Khan might be kinder to disobedient children than God if Deuteronomy is correct. The way I look at it is that any book that pushes fear instead of love is not spiritually motivated.

Not really, just one father with differing aspects to his personality.

However, there is no denying the plurality of 'Gods' in the Old Testament. We cannot just accept thet the "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..." is some kind of abberation, where God spoke in the plurality just for the sake of it or a mistranslation...because it isn't.

I have tried to read as many versions of the OT as possible, with my limited knowledge and understanding of the bible. It's hard work, to say the least and I haven't even looked at the New Testament. In my mind, there is the God who created everything [although, again, I don't believe that He created everything in existence] and there is the jealous, scheming...and quite insane...God who hoodwinked people into following Him alone, to the detriment of their health and safety.

In my opinion, these verses depict a time in history that was brutal and required more than we could possibly imagine in order to survive. These extreme laws were given in order to preserve the Israelites as a people and a civilization. Without them, they probably would have all died out and the civilization ended.

In the previous chapter of Deuteronomy 20, we see the Israelites being commanded to kill the surrounding pagans that were committing "detestable" acts in the name of their pagan gods...

Deuteronomy 20:16-18

16 However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. 17 Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you. 18 Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you will sin against the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 32 explains this in more detail. I find it helpful to read the surrounding chapters to get a better understanding of what's being said and why.

Deuteronomy 32:45-47

45 When Moses finished reciting all these words to all Israel, 46 he said to them, “Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. 47 They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.”

As corrupt and "detestable" as the world is today, we're about to witness where all of it leads when we don't put an end to it. Civilization as we know it will never survive by continuing to go down this road we're on.

Having the Bible recommend killing disobedient children is entirely new to me. Can someone explain how Christians and Jews rationalize it?


By following the command given to Christians as found in 2Tim 2:15, I know this is not for any Christian, living at any time, by rightly dividing the word of truth, the Holy Bible, we see this is one of many commands, statues, precepts, and laws for "ALL ISRAEL" while they were in the land, given them by Moses.

Mal 4:4 ¶ Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.


No Christian could ever justify practicing this verse today.

Israel today will not do this because they are secular. And if it is practiced in the Millennial Kingdom it is because they are commanded to do such from God.
