- Matthew 5:17King James Version (KJV)
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
So Jesus wasn't getting rid of the law or was he? Either you still should be keeping the law (keep kosher, kill your wife if she wasn't a virgin, kill your kids if they talk back, kill a witch, kill the gays, marry your rapist, marry your dead husbands brother... ) or God changed his all knowing mind again (but he knew he was going to do that right?) after sending himself down on a suicide mission where he prays to himself... Read the bible... it's makes the religion look bad... and it isn't written by the disgruntled people that left the group.May 13, 2012
- Oooooooh all this is in the bible ,i love how people get offended by this. The thing is its in Old Testament once Jesus came in the picture in New testament things changed.May 14, 2012
- Hows that Shemekia? Jesus stated he did not come to destroy the Law, and his only stance on marriage was basically that you should leave your wife and follow him in order to get rewarded. Although I do recognize the reality of a monotheistic religion that transformed into one where you believed Jesus was the son of god or they killed you.
I don't get how the Christians managed to eliminate the Law WHILE telling us that the fictional Ten Commandments still apply.May 15, 2012
- ok umm we arent in the year 3...WTF is the point of this. You just poved the oppositions point. Notice they all are between a man and a woman, or set of women. Who ever made this made no point.Jun 6, 2012
- Actually, there are quite a number of protestant denominations -- UCC, Unitarian Universalist, several flavors of the Society of Friends, various folks -- who have been performing weddings for same sex couples for many years.
It's just not even controversial for many of us anymore.
One of our UU churches got shot up over it a couple years ago, and it didn't deter us, it rather solidified us that we are on the side of Love on this one, if Hate comes through our doors with murder on its mind.
We were in the vanguard on race relations and quite a number of other progressive causes, and within my memory, I remember my more conservative Christian brothers and sisters going though these same convulsions over "miscegenation" -- the marriage of blacks and whites -- in the 60s.
It may be hard for you younger people to believe this, but it's true. The bible was used to support that as unnatural and against God's will also. But oddly, that's rarely spoken of (at least, in public!) any more. Except perhaps when someone sees a Cheeerios commercial before they've had their coffee and their medications...? :)Jul 22, 2013
- It should come as no surprise that most protestants do not consider UCC etc. to be Christian churches, mostly because they explicitly reject the words of the Bible.Jul 22, 2013
