17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
6 I the LORD do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed.
24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.
do yourself a favor...if you really are at peace with chucking the bible....then why haunt threads like this? if youre doing it for pure mental masturbation....fine....i like that too....but with every post your losing any semblance of intellectual activity or thoughfulness. Just saying 'duuh, what about THIS? errr...what about THIS?' Its just lame man...really lame.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
do you know what context is? do you know how important it is that things be taken in context? can you imagine living your life out of context? it would be a disaster wouldnt it?
The point of all this is that Gods principles...much like the principles of physics which are inextricably connected with the nature of God, CANNOT ever change.....but like water can take several forms....like light can be both a wave and a particle....and other metaphors.....Gods strategy....his methods....CAN and often WILL change and adapt to the situation.
NOT to mention that israel was a direct theocracy (form of government) and God was their king and direct ruler, making them subject to direct communication, blessing, and judgement
if humans can do this...would you expect less of an omnipotent God? or is it easier and more convenient to put your idea of god in a box where hes easy to manage?
those two verses, taken out of context as they are, are both very clearly dealing with the same thing....Gods mercy. IT doesnt change.
Show me a contridiction in the Old Covenant compared with the Old Covenant.

Gen was written before the law was written. The Law was delivered to Moses about a thousand years after Abraham. Yes Abraham was a lier he said his wife was his siter so they would not kill him and taker her. You can not hold someone to the law before the law was written. So show me another conflict.
Youre simply upset that i can very easily and quickly point out the copious errors presented so far....or are personally riled at the things ive said for your own reasons.
