God has always had his sovereignity... that has never changed.
Jesus was likely a vegan. He caused no harm within his ministry, though his childhood might be in question.
He said not one Tith of the law will pass...
the commandments still have not been changed.... because they all had to do with love... that has never changed.
Perhaps the commandments were given by God, but much of the OT was written by men with agendas IMHO
I agree 100%. I meant when are we humans going to stop judging God and let Him be sovereign.
You're forgetting the times He ate fish with the apostles
No, He said not one jot or tittle would pass from the law till all be fulfilled, and I came to fulfill."
CORRECT!!! Love is the fulfillment of the law. Check out Romans 15. Christ's two commands were 1. Love God, 2. love your fellow man. That's it, that's the reason Christ said His yoke was easy and His burden is light. 2 commands instead of 613.
The heptadic structures underlying the text destroys that idea. It would be impossible for any human to duplicate the coding structures of the text. Check out the discoveries by Dr. Ivan Panin

mm, you do bring up an interesting point on meat. Man was never suppose to have it. God gave it to them after the flood because, well, there probably wasn't a whole lot of plants.
Now I don't know if fish have no pain, but I think Jesus may have caused pain from, say, turning the tables over. He took out the whip, literally. Also perhaps emotional pain. I imagine at least someone got hit by something flying about.
And on what authority do you say that? 500 years ago the best scientific minds were all Christian. It changes per generation, but there is no indication that religion is for the weak minded.
Do you simply ignore the 1.2 billion Chinese whom overwhelmingly gobble up atheism as a state belief? Not all of course. But many do.
No, religion is neither for the weak nor the strong. It is a choice. And has no proof to your intelligence. Richard Dawkins is a very smart atheist. Sir Issac Newton was a very smart Christian.
