Yes , new testament is all about tolarance and it's aproch is changed radical from the old testament.
How ever the new testament does make refrence to the old testament, numeros refrences.
The old testament even anounces the coming of christ, you got that at the end of the old testament.
So they are linked.
1 What many dont udnerstand is that the bibile it's self is not a single book, it has been asebled from many smaller books .
2 The bible may not be translated correct, so it may be interpreted in the rong way.
3 Some of the books were not even included in the bible, and they should have been, for example books that were writen by woman, books that contained
texed inapropiate for the church, it was done by constantin the grate when the bible was asebled.
4 The church is responsable many times for aletering the original text or substracting words.
Think of this, a creative force will always be the bigest one, it is hard to create things, it is so easy to distroy them, god has always been a
creative force, I too think that cristian religion has gone bad, I think the creator of the universe wants us to be free, and let's us chose if we
want to belive in him or not, he does not presure any one, the curch does and it has done that in the passed, one of it's horible aspects was the
incuisition, I think the church no longer represents the true god, for the bible it's diferent I think because it is composed of many books, If one
person would of wrote all of it I would understand, in some aspects of the old testament from some books good is harsh for example in geneses with one
of the man that has commidet a crime, he is mad that one of the man has made a sacrifice in his name and has sacrificed an animal in the name of
So there is many aspects of the old testament ,some of them show a contovercy , so I dont think the bible should be viewd as bad material.
