Okay after reading the OP of this thread it was very hateful.
The new testament was the good news, of Jesus christ's death and ressurection. If Jesus christ was here in real life and seen you casting stones at
gays he would call you a modern day Pharisee.
Jesus came to fufull the law of the Old Testament , if you are follower of Christ why use old testament laws? If you do follow old testament laws you
disobeyed Jesus teaching. He brought a new law called love thy neighbor. This is why christ ate dinner with sinners and even shocked his own
Pharisee's always throw stones, jesus christ would never throw a stone at a sinner.
I'm not a Christian but use to be baptised forcefully and read the new testament because if I didn't I would be punched across the face or have a hot
large metal cross burned on my back or arm.
l still have the two cross marks on my back and little marks on the arm when I was burned at 8 years old from my grandma for committing a sinful act
of watching non Christian TV or a refusal to read the word of god, I did it again watching tv and was burned again. Did I tell you how I was baptised?
I didn't want to go in the salt water, so i was forced to hold my breath for 3 minutes underwater by her hands smudging my face against the ground,
inside of small pool covered in salt as she was praying and chanting words with a pastor.
When I was 12 , I had a nude magazine and was caught, my grandma taken me to her church and prayed with a pastor, then brought me home and locked me
inside of my room for 4 days only drinking water, when she opened the door to let me out she said I can eat but had to eat words of her prayer on
paper before I could have real food.
My non Christian mother thrown her in jail for child abuse but even still did bad things when I went to visit her, she even denied I was at her house
when I was reported missing for 4 days. The pastor of her church was serving a life prison sentence for murdering his wife and kids, later on
eventually, the pastor was crazy to because he was also there during my baptism when I was forced underwater screaming without breath.
I'm terrified of crosses but still respect Christians, not all of them because I know they all are not the same.
