Here you go all good believers, remember you asked for these verses. AND I can give you chapt. & verse on all of them.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:27
Oh and Those breaking the sabbeth, cursing or blaspheming, adultry, not being a virgin on the wedding night, and let us not forget the rebellious son........are to be stoned Most of these verses are in Deut. with Numbers 15-32-56 covering the one on the Sabbeth.
Remember Jesus was a Jew and said," He did not come to abolish or change the law but to fulfill the law." Matt.5-17-8 In otherwords, being a Jew, the Old Testement laws were His laws and He expected all those who follow Him or believe in Him to obey the laws in the old testement. However, I would advise ignoring these religious laws. Murder by stoning by religious decree is still murder and we are enough of a civilized society to look unkindly on such actions.
By the way, I do not feel sorry for those who have chosen to believe in a book that portrays the supposed Creator of the Universe as a cruel, prejudiced, arrogant, insane nutball. After all the mental capacity to assess and judge good...
So??...It was Jewish law and Jesus was a practicing Jew. Jewish law consisted of more than "10 commandments"
All Old Testament levitican Laws. The only "laws" that came from God were the 10 commandments which Christ stated remained. He also stated that he brought a new covenant, this would supersede the previous covenant made with Moses. A new covenant, that is the key. Bringing up old Levitican law to Christians..... Levitican law "may" apply to Jews, but it doesn't apply to Christians, as much as I am sure you would like it to, to make your job of crapping on Christianity and Christians easier, but you're wrong.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
When Christ referred to "not coming to change the law" he was referring to mans laws, laws like Leviticus, laws of the land like Roman laws. As a matter of fact when Christ was asked if the Jewish people should be paying tribute (taxes) to Caesar, his reply was to "give unto Caesar that which is his, and unto God that which is God's." In other words, you still payed your taxes and obeyed the laws of the land.
Now, if you were as knowledgeable as you say you are, you would never have brought up stoning period. Christ made it perfectly clear what he thought of stoning, or do you not remember/know .
I'm sorry dear, but your arguments are old and weak. They take OT Jewish laws and traditions and try to apply them to Christianity. Judaism and Christianity may be rooted in the same history and have the same "founding Fathers", but they went their separate ways during the time of Christs life.
