It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday! I’ve mentioned many times on this blog that Jesus is not the peaceful, loving character he’s made out to be by most Christians. He did not bring about a more peaceful time. The New Testament is not a better version of God than the Old Testament. I’ve used Matthew 5:17 several times to show that Jesus was not here to abolish the Old Testament law, but to accept it as fact. This verse is not the only time Jesus states the Old Testament law must be followed.
“It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law.” – Luke 16:17
Moving heaven and earth is easier than changing the law of the Old Testament. Those are the direct words of Jesus and if you believe in Jesus, you must accept this as truth. Jesus, the peaceful, loving character Christians say makes sense of the Bible, promotes slavery, rape, and killing of innocent babies and children. He does so by re-affirming the truth of the laws in the Old Testament. Jesus of the New Testament is no better than the God of the Old Testament.
