Why is it when (some) Chrisitans are faced with something disagreeable in the Bible they start blubbing about it being Old Testament,not the New???
If you do not believe in the OT because the teachings of Jesus contradict nearly all of it,then get rid of it!
That means no Genisis,no Flood,no 10 Commandments,no 7 Deadly Sins,etc.
You can't just pick and choose the parts of the Bible you like or agree with!!
Yes you can, Jesus did. The Old Testament is exactly that, OLD TESTAMENT. The OLD story of the Jews falling into idolatry and out of favor with God. It is also in there because of the various prophecies made about the Messiah which were fulfilled by Jesus.
i dont know if you realize this or not but the G-D being that did the actual physical creative works and made the universe and the dinosaurs and adam and eve (who rejected Him) and then dealt with able, enoch, noah , shem,abraham, isaac and jacob/israel is the same One that became the physical human Messiah----see john 1:1-19.He made all the physical lawsthat we need to keep if we want to stay healthy.the old covenant was made with israel which it broke over and over again------the murder of the Messiah ended that covenant between them-----just as death ends a marriage and means a spouse can remarry without committing adultery so now a new covenant is in the works BUT the laws and the prophecies of the old covenant are still in full force and effect--------they are not done away ! you better ask G-D to give you the strength to help you stop sinning before you end up becoming ashes------see 2peter2:4-10

Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."

And you've quoted this without your face turning red? I'm sorry, but if you want to accept that book literally then don't be hypocrite and accept the whole deal. That is, never eat pork or seafood, avoid at all costs a woman when she's having her period, kill everyone who dears working on a Sunday, don't wear clothes of mixed fabrics (because it's also an abomination), kill your child if he curses you, don't cut your beard, etc etc etc.
The book of Leviticus is nothing more than a manual for Israel's priest with a set of moral rules to distinguish Jews from pagans.

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind
well we are descendants from incest. adam and eve and their 2 sons. where did their sons wives come from? noah's ark. it was noah, his wife and his sons wives who were saved. so first cousins had to sleep with first cousins. and there had to be a black wife, ans asian wife, an indian wife and so forth to account for all the races. then there is the story of lot and his daughters. lets get real. two daughters take sympathy on their dad because mommy has been turned into a pilar of salt. they get him drunk so they can sleep with him? sounds like to me that lot raped his girls and then blamed it on them considering that he woould have been killed for it.
right now at this time G-D is not forcing anyone to keep Their laws but that is going to change when Messiah comes-----we will be forced to do what is right and not allowed to make other people miserable like it is now.
