'For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a day of sabbath rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it is to be put to death.'
So people who work on Sunday should be killed? This is the student room and I presume we all have a decent amount of intellect- so how can anyone who says the Bible is a great moral compass defend this verse, I'm actually curious for an answer. If the old testament is the sacred word of God, then how can he command such evil deeds. I do not care if you Christians follow the New testament now and disregard the OT because you can't disavow the OT and the fact of the matter is it was written by God. You can't deny that and I want someone to directly answer this.
Its not Islam so it can't possibly true that violence exists in the Bible too. What a discovery that quote will be for some.
Christians do not have to obey the laws of the Old Testament except those which are reiterated in the New Testament. Christians recognise that the Old Testament was written specifically for Israelities and Jesus' teachings overruled the Old Testament.
As far as I'm aware Christians don't have to follow the Old Testament. What Jesus said was on the whole pretty agreeable..
Most of the bible is a joke in my opinion. People cherry-pick the verses they like, the ones that portray the Bible as a book of love and compassion. They almost entirely omit or at least ignore the Old Testament because it's too violent and claim it's antiquated and unrepresentative of the real Christianity. Anyone who believes the Bible is a guide to morality is blatantly overlooking crucial elements of the book itself and thus are way too stubborn and adamant to be rationalized with.
I'm more interested in who Hannah is and why you hate her tbh. Please explain
This is from the Old Testament - it is not supposed to be followed by Christians today.
Even Jews, who do follow similar teachings, definitely won't kill anyone for working on Fridays!
Christians don't have to follow the Old Testament, since it is outdated and does not apply to modern day faith..
