I am writing something that I feel I should have done long ago but I never really got round to or was too busy answering this Old and New Testament
arguments to even consider doing my own.
A lot of people have been using Old Bible Jewish laws to topple the rest of the message of the Bible and use contradictions and all kinds of so called
smart thinking, but we know these threads do only one thing and that is create large replies that can span many days. I am not saying I am an expert
on this but I know enough to patch the holes in faith that many seem to escape the net.
One of the reasons for this ignornace is lack of teaching and the more society forgets the larger the army of ignorant quoters on here and everywhere.
So just to clear a few things up I thought it may help a few, even if its a minority these days.
Anyway I will try and explain things which in a way make sense; well I hope it does anyway.
Just a few pointers before going into essay size explanations.
New Testament supersedes Old for laws and actions and attitudes but there is still prophecy to fill even for today.
First off the Old Testament was just that - Old, something’s changed and not everything applied anymore once Christianity and Jesus came to save our
The Old Testament was for the Jews only; it was their own bloodline that dealt with it, not other races or peoples.
The Jews today still have their own prophecies to fill which involve the Return to Israel and times of persecution that comes with it.
Why is race and tribe important? Because through the Line of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, King David and other bloodlines related to Mary who gave
birth to Jesus the Son of God.
Why so many wars and killings and commands from God?
One reason like the flood of Noah was the corruption of bloodlines, the fallen Angels wanted to mix human bloodlines to save themselves. Genesis 6 and
This happened in Moses times and of course with King David with Goliath. Not all battles were against man, Even good Angels sometimes helped out if
they were in trouble.
If that was not bad enough we know what happened when Rome found out when a new King was born, they slaughted all the infants.
Contradictions people may say relating to the Old Testament and Bible Quotes showing why not;
Matthew 5:17: Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets; I came not to destroy, but to fulfill.
Galatians 3:13: Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law.
Colossians 2:14: Having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us, he has taken it out of the way,
having nailed it to the cross.
Deuteronomy 24:1-4: When a man takes a wife and marries her, if she then finds no favour in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, let
him then write her a certificate of divorce, give it to her, and send her out of the house.
Matthew 19:8: Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that
anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery.
Matthew 5:38–39: You have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” But I tell you, do not resist an evil person.
But because the purpose of Jesus filled all other harsh realities through his sacrifice he was able to mend old laws that was otherwise quite harsh
and barbaric for some societies, but even so these laws were just torches that were passed on from generation to generation of Jews to keep God and
It is true that the character of God never changes, but due to the sins of mankind, God’s relationship with his creation has changed dramatically
over time. The story of creation in Genesis tells us that after God created mankind and his surroundings, God reflected on his creation and felt that
it was “very good”
Galatians 3:19,23-25: Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions… Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law,
imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by
faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God…
2 Corinthians 3:13-14,17: Moses put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away.
But their minds were blinded… the veil is taken away in Christ… Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is
Hebrews 7:18-19: A former commandment is annulled because of its weakness and uselessness, for the law made nothing perfect; but on the other hand, a
better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.
John 8:3-11: The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, "Teacher,
this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?" …Jesus bent down and
wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, "Let him who is without sin among you be the
first to throw a stone at her." And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with
the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one
condemned you?" She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more."
Secondly it’s okay to drink wine and eat what you want, wine was used to clean a bad stomach Timothy2 and Jesus made wine from water.
Christianity is not as backwards as people think, but I feel on ATS people use references that they do not understand.
