A simple question..
Why do you ignore the word of your god in the old testament for the word of someone your god specifically warned you about, aka Jesus.
It is well known that the old testament warns of false prophets, people claiming to speak the word of god, devils with magical powers to deceive etc…

Don’t you think it’s a bit funny you actually ignore your god completely and overshadow him with some other dude, does that even make sense?

Your god and bible is very clear that you must not cherry pick the word of the lord. So why follow the bible at all if you cant follow it all, if you truly believe it then you would believe that you are going to hell.

Who is this question aimed at exactly? I am not a Christian, but even I know that Christian's would counter with the fact that Jesus fulfilled many predictions in the Old Testament. And, he evolved the religion into a different form than the Old Testament. Whoever believes in him has eternal life. The Old Testament was based on a series of acts and sacrifices to garner an in with God. The New Testament is based on a believe in Jesus to gain salvation.

So, Christians would not see any contradiction in their believe system.

Please elaborate on your point?

I'm only replying because you are such a fun one.



The Bible is a collection of books many of which have been left out by ignorant and selfish power hungry MEN for their own political reasons. I follow Jesus and his teachings. There are only a few books in the Bible that deal with him. The Bible does nothing more than attempt to merge two faiths because one was birthed from the other. But followers of Jesus understand that his ultimate sacrifice fulfilled the Laws of Moses and anything pertaining to them is to be addressed by Christ and Christ alone. He has more authority than Moses.

I am a follower of Christ. Not an observer of the religious teachings found in the Bible.

I will wait for you to pick your jaw up off the ground so you can post another one of your "questions"

I have an answer for ya...

read and understand what Jesus taught...

What he taught makes it impossible for him to be a false prophet/teacher

I gave you an answer in my post. But, I sense you are not really looking for an answer, nor have you done a great deal of research on the subject.

Actually, there were several prophecies attributed to Jesus that failed to come true. Here are two among many:
Matthew 10:23, Jesus told his disciples that he would return before they could go over all the cities of Israel with the gospel. The gospel has since been preached all throughout Israel, & continues to be so with christian television now, & still Jesus hasn't returned.
Mark 14:62, Jesus told the high priest that he would live to see Jesus' second coming. Of course the high priest died before Jesus returned.
Like I said, there are several other ones, all of which Christians who have encountered these discrepancies and asked their religious leaders about them have the same weak responses. The fact is, if you take these "prophecies" literally, Jesus was a false prophet.
This is not to mention either the several "prophesies" taken from the Old Testament that were severely altered to seem to vaguely fit the supposed acts of Jesus. Many of these were based on a terrible understanding of the Hebrew language. The most famous example of which is the mistranslation of the phrase "he was born of a young woman" into the virgin birth myth. Which was penned almost a century after the supposed birth of Jesus anyway. Another great example of how Jesus doesn't fit with the Messianic prophesies of the Hebrews was the fact that he was supposed to be a conquering king, who would place the Jewish people above all Gentiles and subjugate them forever.

Why would you ask for 2nd hand info when you can read up on it and have your answers. It just requires a little common sense to figure out. Notice the Korn and the Torah similarities to the Old Testament. They even mention Jesus in them. As a prophet of God that escaped the cross, not the foretold Messiah.

I travelled back in time before the OT was finalized and one of the guys whose book was going to get rejected told me they would say that and that they were full of it.

Maybe you should stick to things you actually have at least 2% knowledge on.......

Muslims knows more about what the Bible actually says about Jesus than you do.

Very very funny....... all I can do is smile. ATS gives me so many laughs some days.

Its impossible to ever understand a fiction book, your ideas are only opinion; just like mine but at least they have some biblical backing as other people in this thread have clearly shown.
If the devil is the love of materialism, isn’t jesus the materialism of god and 'love'?

The bible is fiction FULL STOP
Biblically speaking my opinion has more legs then yours.

So basically what your saying is that you are an adult who believes in fairy tales and you want us to take your opinions seriously?

The old testament also prophecies that the Jews will reject the messiah and that the gentiles would hold Him in high esteem.
