Slavery is A-ok. Assuming you're a member of one of the three major western monotheistic religions... Man, Indiana Jones was a dick

What the 			****		? The reason I posted that was because it's annoying when people take the bible literally and use that literal interpretation to make christianity look like an evil religion. I'm not trying to promote christianity or degrade it, I think it' just ridiculous when people antagonize other religions. But I guess I'm the asshole. Why don't YOU grow up, 			********		, and think before you spew some 			********		 on a comment. It's people like you who perpetuate stupid arguments over nothing, but I hope you feel like the better person for wishing misery upon me for no reason. Have a nice day and eat 			****		.

This law is no longer in effect. A half hour of Google would tell you that, but...I guess that's too much work for atheists.

Jesus' death was the fulfillment.

Fulfilled = Finished.

Finished = Does not need to continue.

YOU try again.

it also means to achieve or realize something, I.E. He wanted to fully realize the laws of the prophets upon humanity. Please try again.

You can't just believe some make up rules from a book you say is sacred and then go back and say which ones are God's will and which ones are not according to what you want.
#13 to #8 - skateabuga ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
The reason Christians don't follow that set of rules anymore is because the Old Covenantal system, that involved such harsh punishments, has been done away with. We are under a new covenant. Jesus said in Luke 22:20, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood." This new covenant was prophecied in the Old Testament in Jer. 31:31, “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah." It is referenced in 1 Cor. 11:25, 2 Cor. 3:6, Heb. 8:8, 9:15; and 12:24.
I am not a Christian. I am atheist. Do some research

Explain then Matthew 5:17-5:20, in which Jesus explains that the Old Testament and the Law of the Prophets is still true and just

"17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven."
#22 to #19 - skateabuga ONLINE (04/16/2013) [-]
The Old Covenant agreement between Christ and ancient Israel was actually a marriage agreement, or covenant. In Jeremiah 3:14, God said to Israel, “I am married unto you.” Though He did later divorce her (3:8) for unfaithfulness, the marriage remained binding until Christ’s death. Christ’s marriage to, and divorce from, ancient Israel followed Old Testament law—see Ezekiel 16:38 and Deuteronomy 24:1.
I'm not here for a religious debate. I'm not here to rebuttal but simply to explain to you further something you may not quite be able to grasp. The bible itself is determined by the reader. Make the word your own. Don't just believe what you've been taught or what google has told you. I'm out

"For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus said this in Matthew 5:18-19
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law" also said by Jesus in Matthew 5:17. At another point he said he came not to do away with the law. If that was all invalidated why would the old testament still be quoted at all? No one who is really familiar with the bible would say that. I don't know why it's said so much
#49 to #13 - foulsmell (04/21/2013) [-]
The New Testament is worse than the Old. It's not 'til gentle Jesus meek and mild that the concept of Hell and eternal punishment of the dead is introduced. Christianity ain't off the hook, yet.
User avatar #43 to #8 - ssurtrebor **User deleted account** (04/16/2013) [-]
I'm not, and nobody is. There's a pretty simple and clear set of rules in the Bible, and it continually astounds me that nobody ever gets it.
#21 to #7 - anon (04/16/2013) [-]
the bible is totally full of **** regardless. We know that there was no adam and eve, no worldwaide flood and no israelites in egypt. Half an hour of google will show you that, but i guess thats just too mmuch work for christians.

Well, they found Noah's ark in Turkey, so there's that.

No they didn't, if they did it would be big news.
User avatar #36 to #32 - studbeefpile (04/16/2013) [-]
You can look it up yourself broseph.

It didn't make big news because Turkey has a highly atheist government that won't allow their press to publicize such things, much less allow other countries' presses to look at it. However, as usual the internet doesn't give a **** about such censorship; there are some videos on Youtube about it:

Well, you could take the word of that guy claiming you can build wood into ice, or you could consider that the ark they found is made out of gopher wood (which cannot be found in that region of the world) and the little pellets inside were essentially petrified animal feed. However, we've all heard plenty of lies, so I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm certainly not saying you're right.

Correction: This the law in two of the three major monotheistic religions, Judaism, and Christianity. In Islam a slave owner can not strike his slave, if he does so he must give the slave his freedom. He must also share his food with the slave, clothe him well, and a slave can only be asked to work for a limited period of time (roughly 30-45 minutes) after his master has slept.

The original translation actually says Servant or Maid. JUST SAYING!
#3 - anon (04/15/2013) [-]
You shouldnt compare these quotes to today.
This was the first law, where a master could be punished for harming his slave,
so compared to those times, it was a good law
#4 to #3 - anon (04/15/2013) [-]
We wont compare to old quotes when they will stop using old quote to try to dictate things for today such as the "definition" of marriage and what is "wrong" according to the bible.

Well, in the Bible, they were slaves to the egyptians and God freed them. God doing anything in the bible won't mean a whole lot to an athiest, but in the context of the book, God freed the slaves.

It's an argument none of that ever happened, I was just saying that's what it said in context.

Regardless of how right or wrong it is, or the fact that it's no longer in effect... how the hell did this make sense to anyone in the first place? It's literally the same thing except the slave / servant / maid / whatever the **** dies a couple days later. It's like saying if you kill someone by shooting them in the head and they die instantly, you are to be punished, but if you kill them by shooting them in the stomach and let them die over the course of a week, you're innocent. Not stirring up **** , but legitimately wondering what the point behind this is.

Why is there a need for distinction of the gender of the slave?
