This law is no longer in effect.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.

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.

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

It's just occurred to me that religion is just about the nerdiest thing you could be in to. Trying to decipher in detail what the correct interpretation of what is said in there holy book.

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."

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

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.

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.

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.

Fulfilled = Finished.

Finished = Does not need to continue.

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.

This law is no longer in effect.

Yet, the bible is the eternal word of Yahweh.

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 ****.

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.

I'd just like to mention that the Jews were slaves in Egypt when they became "Gods chosen people."

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.
