One has to be a bit careful here because some Christian sects insist on an "Inerrant" Bible, and do include the Old Testament in that inerrancy. This is used for all sorts of things like proving that God is against homosexuality (something that's much more explicit in the Old Testament than the New).

 

It's arguable that the main differences between Christian sects is the picking and choosing of what's open to interpretation (and it should be noted, "inerrancy" is mostly a way to say that your interpretation is the only true one, which mostly goes down a No True Scotsman logical hole).

 

As an administrative note, A-wal was banned quite a while ago for unrepentant trolling and won't be back to reply (at least we hope not). You might wish to continue this discussion over in the other thread about Old vs. New that you already have open. It's certainly an interesting theological discussion.

 

 

The bible is so simple you have to have someone else help you misunderstand it, :phones:

You are right.  I realized later that I did overdo that.  Brain and mouth do not work in conjunction.  After all, it was Catholic bishops who gathered their choices of books together to form their Bible and they do use parts of the OT for teaching or inspiration.    Thanks.
