Could someone please explain to me why the **** Christians actually give a damn about the Old Testament?
As far as I know, it's basically the New Testament that should be followed, since it shows the teachings of Christ, not Jewish folklore/scriptures
#368 to #351 - sleepingriver (05/31/2012) [-]
It is about how Jesus fulfills the Jewish master story, the relationship of God with the Jews and the messianic expectation( God sending down a messiah to save the Jews and establish his kingdom on Earth). Christians believe that Jesus was the fulfillment of this as Jesus was the a descended from the line of David (Davidic Covenant an agreement between God and King David where if the Jews believe in God they will be a Jew at the throne of Israel. He also linked to the line of Abraham, that is stated in the beginning of the Book of Matthew.

Everything in the New Testament is either the oral tradition or written tradition(or both Biblical scholars aren't sure do to the lack of archeological evidence to support theories) of what Jesus taught about is directly related to the Old Testament. Jesus in the Gospels in the Bible redefined what Jewish laws mean. Ex The story of picking wheat on the Sabbath, he gave a different interpretation of the book Leviticus about work on the Sabbath. Jesus interpreted it as work necessary for survival (cooking carrying food water)was acceptable to do on that day. Compared to the norm was that you could not do any of that day.

The stories of the Bible are intertwined immensely, so it is important in a theological perspective to have both volumes in the same book can allow comparisons between the two interpretations of the same ideas about religion.

I know what Jesus's part in the prophecy is (not to mention the Jews shunned him as their Messiah, therefore they don't really wanna hear of him)

But since the New Testament is contradictory in many points with the Old One, it still seems absurd to me that Christians (that follow the New Rules of Christ) refer to the old laws
#424 to #369 - soluvy (05/31/2012) [-]
The New Testament is essentially the new laws and thats what Christians are supposed to follow, but many seem intent on following the much more wrathful teachings of the Old testament (i.e. hating gays, not accepting other religions). Even though we don't follow the Old Testament, its go to know our religions history

A bit off-topic, here's irony for you:

Scroll down, you'll see me posting more or less the same statement, being raped by red thumbs

Abraham is the father of (nearly) all monotheistic religions.
User avatar #347 to #342 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (05/31/2012) [-]
AND he is first mentioned in the Jewish scriptures/Torrah
User avatar #355 to #347 - tylermcall (05/31/2012) [-]
Yes, but Christianity is basically Judaism but continued with Jesus Christ.
User avatar #356 to #355 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (05/31/2012) [-]
Well I figured quite a while ago that Christianity is nothing more than a Jewish sect

But try explaining that to a Christian, especially who believes that their faith is the only true one
User avatar #357 to #356 - artillerysmith (05/31/2012) [-]
Yeah, my religion could easily be called "New Age Judaism". Instead they named it after this son of God guy.
User avatar #358 to #357 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (05/31/2012) [-]
Because how it's called it's oh-so-relevant...
User avatar #359 to #358 - artillerysmith (05/31/2012) [-]
It just doesn't bother me that my religion is built on top of another religion. This Jesus guy is pretty cool.

User avatar #346 to #339 - bosskiss (05/31/2012) [-]

#462 to #346 - theydontlikeu (06/01/2012) [-]
way to just throw a meme at me that doesnt even fit the context of what i said, im not sure if youre dumb or just retarded. youre the one that wants to open a link to see a picture close out the tab hit next and open a new link cuz otherwise its repost. like its a big deal that you get "thumbs" for someone elses work. cuz those are worth something right?

when you post a picture
-you don't support the creator with web traffic, Profit made out of ads
-you steal somebodies creation/comic and show it off on a website with the idea it's yours
-he COPYRIGHTED the picture. that means it isn't allowed to post it somewhere else or to do anything with it without permission
-Ad­min says post a link if you have a copyright protected image

when you post a link
-you help the creator with webtraffic, profit made out of ads
-you give somebody credit for the things he made
-he get's the feedback/appreciate on his website instead on a random website he probable never heard
-you can't be sued for distribution of copyright protected material

#472 to #469 - theydontlikeu (06/06/2012) [-]
how does that make me mature or immature? lets count the things you have failed at in this thread, 1. sarcasm. 2. logic. 3. being an adult. 4. not being a faggot
User avatar #473 to #472 - bosskiss (06/06/2012) [-]

User avatar #477 to #476 - bosskiss (06/09/2012) [-]
if you read comment #463 you will see i made a valid reason to my comment

you replied with #468 a comment which tries to change the object, and not going into my valid reasons

now ask yourself who is the one who is ignorance and doesn't read a comment fully?
