a lot of His teachings use the OT as basis'
He had to use the scripture everyone else used to relate to people of the time... And he actually used very little of the OT...
You are supposed to draw the OT in through the spirit, not through the senses. The pharisees also thought God was dreadful, but Jesus showed
them His mercy. I have also found outside sources of what Jesus said, but I would never claim to have known all of His words as the are endless. St.
John said if all the things He had said and done were written the world could not contain them.
And you are free to believe whatever you will...
The Law is for sinners, people who live by the grace of Christ are not subject to the law.
Grace was not taught by Jesus... that would be Paul...
The punishments were for those who refused to do as God wanted them to do, having known the law
Right... Follow me or endure my Wrath.... That is not a loving Father...
If the God of the OT was wrong why did Jesus comply with His laws and call Him "Abba"?
Did he really though... The law and all the prophets hang on two commandments....
How many commandments did the OT God give? And lets not forget levitical laws which were supposed to be from God as well.... 600 some odd laws of
Did he stone the adultress as the OT God commands?
Did he consort with sinners and prostitutes?
The Prophets words were harsh because the Law of God is severe.
The prophets words were harsh because they did not know the true God... which is why Jesus came in the first place... to set people straight... and
they still didn't listen
God is a Father, but He is also the Just Judge towards sinners.
Killing women and children is just?
Don't take scripture literally and personally, or you will end up feeling insulted by God every time.
I don't feel insulted by God... because the OT God is NOT the true God...
