Do You Know Anyone

Do you know anyone BUT atheists who think that the Old Testament Covenant still applies to how Christians should live today? Anyone? Anyone at all?

No. I didn’t think so.

Atheists, the ones who deny the existence of God.

Atheists, the ones who deride the Bible as a worthless Bronze Age Book.

Atheists, the ones who tell followers of Jesus how they should be living their lives.

Over the last year or so, I’ve posted, almost on a daily basis, verses from the Old Testament (atheists don’t even know that the New Testament exists) that appeal to followers of God to show mercy, fairness, kindness, and gentleness to aliens, neighbours, family and servants. 100's of verses have been posted.

Yet -

Atheists tell Christians that if they aren’t stoning their disobedient children, they are somehow not following God.

Do you know anyone with the logic of atheists?

How about Jesus?

"It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid."

"'till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass passes

And didn't Jesus criticize the Jews for not killing their disobedient children?
Mark 7:8-13

I could post a hundred verses about verses from the Koran about kindness... doesn't mean there still aren't odious verses.

I will tell followers of Jesus how they should be living their lives.
If you Christians aren’t stoning your disobedient children, you are somehow not following God.

Where are atheists recommending this? I think we're just pointing out that the "God of the Old Testament" is supposed to be the same being, and that it's very odd how cruel He is early on compared to later (when He's only mildly cruel). Maybe like so many men, the birth of His child inspired Him to relax a little, but no one twisted the arm of Christians and told them to include these disparate stories in the Bible.

Many Christians claim that the Bible IS the inerrant word of God, which implies that ALL of it is binding on everyone without exception.

Some in America would like to make the Bible (and all of its contents) the only basis for assessing whether any laws are correct or not. With the Bible over-ruling ALL of what they call (mere) man-made laws.

Books with such titles as Total Truth, and Above All Earthly Powers promote this POWER SEEKING conceit and agenda.
