Now, it's been pointed out that Christians are free from the law of the OT. This is true, but Paul talks about this freedom in First Corinthians
10:23 when he says everything is permissible. However, he goes on to say that not everything is beneficial.
4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought
you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to
walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.
Many if not all Christians basically worship Jesus as if he himself were god. Obviously he is not god and for many reason's all outlined in the bible
itself. Yet we have imagery of Jesus on a cross, clearly in violation of commandment number 4.
"You shall have no other gods besides Me... Do not make a sculpted image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above..."
It is also a prohibition against making or possessing objects that one or other may bow down to or serve, including any artistic representations of
God or symbols thereof, including crucifixes, or any sculpture of a human being.
The coming Messiah was one who would bring full observence of God's law's. Not change them.
The coming Messiah was one who would bring the hewbrews back to Jerusalem. Not have a new religion formed in his name only to persecute and disperse
the Jews out of the holy lands.
The coming Messiah was one who would be a direct descendent of David, not born of a virgin pagan demi-god conception.
The concept of a trinity does not exist in the OT, this is an NT invention by Jesus or more apropriatley, those who wrote the NT 30 years after his
unprophecied death. Which is another thing that does not exist in the Messianic prophecies of the OT.
Christianity is nothing more then those who don't want to follow God's "old" law's. But instead would rather follow the laws of some man born of
a sinful woman who commited adultry. They would rather follow a man who couldn't even follow the traditional law's given by god.
All this and with the given fact that not a single Christian on this planet (or atleast none I've met or talked to online) even bother to follow what
Jesus says. Instead, they'd rather twist the bible's teaching's for their own disgusting purposes. Commit hate crimes against gay's for instance.
Kill abortionist doctors. Wage "holy" wars. THOU SHALT NOT KILL.
Christianity should be condemned. Not for it's teaching's, but for those hypocrits who can't even bother to LEARN. There are so many hypocrits who
proclaim to have so much knowledge of the bible, and yet show literally nothing. They have to spend an hour to find a verse or they idiotically sit
there can claim you don't know what your talking about and violently insult you for it. Most if not all of you are nothing but a bunch of
And before I get a crap load of insults and judgments made against me or condencending attitudes in an attempt to belittle me. Or a bunch of childish
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and
Love your neighbor as yourself. So in everything, do to others as you would have them do to you.
Go ahead. Prove me wrong. Show me that those christians here on ATS aren't a bunch of hypocrits. Show me you have no problem following your God's
word without the damn BS.
