The Old Testament had many verses that were countered by the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament, but to include those wouldn't support the message you are preaching.

Yes, I just cherry picked some verses that suggested we kill our scandalous neighbors. It suited my needs at the moment, but we make memes, is that not what we do? I have heard from Christians that Islam is an inherently violent religion, while ignoring the violence in their own sacred text, and I am sure Muslims get told some w**reable stories about us as well. Taking quotes out of context from The Bible or The Qu'ran can make either religion look foolish and/or evil. I was not trying to bash any ones beliefs, just looking for some stoning bible quotes to go with a Monty Python stoning template.

This can be a difficult forum as context is limited and no one sees a wink and a smile. Your right individual passage out of context do have that effect, which is why actions more important. I must admit I was attempting to word my reply in a way to show the atheists/agnostics preach much the way any religion does.

Its all good, I'm the same way, I don't have many lines but I do have a couple based on my beliefs. Its still a struggle sometimes to temper the harm you can do defending them vs the harm that can be done not staying true to them. I have so many times typed a long reply just to erase it. I'm preeeeetty sure we don't see eye to eye on everything, but we can see eye to eye on what's funny out there. For what its worth, I didn't see you as "that guy".

Jesus didn't "counter" those passages. He "fulfilled" them and expanded on them to draw people to maturity.
God is unchanging. The God of the new testament is the same God of the old testament.
As to the comments of "would he trust paper" lol The God who created a universe ... no, he is not sitting on his hands going "Oooooo, paper! What was I thinking letting them use paper!?" :-D

Yes, I knew that was a poor choice of words there and frankly a little surprised I haven't been called out on it sooner. It is sometimes hard for me to explain how I believe and why in way that is succinct. That response was originally 3-4 paragraphs and then shortened. Having grown up in a family that went to church at least 3 times a week I have very strong beliefs, but they don't always line up with organized religion.

And bad ones! Anti-christian jesters like to cherry pick verses from the bible.. and misrepresent them.. especially when talking about extreme punishments noted in the old testament. Those punishments, like death for adultery. . Are not practiced today. . But in the koran.... different story! Go get ' em jsouper! ;)

And there is a reason the bible calls for those particular deaths "under the law". The marriage relationship is mirrored in our walk with Christ (since we are the bride of Christ). And apart from Christ there is death.
But, of course non-believers will race to those passages because they do not understand them. Ironically and sadly, since they have no savior, those passages and more are what they will bear at the judgment. Blood is ALWAYS required for sin. I however, am not without sin so it is not for me to throw the first stone or require that blood.

wow...how do people become jesters for renouncing the Bible as flawed and not the perfect word of God that the church and people of faith claim it is...it's described as the word of God and yet you cherry pick which passages you take literal and which ones you dismiss as outdated or misrepresented. You have to accept it ALL as the word of God or dismiss it as a work of fiction...yes it's a good work of fiction and it has some good messages in it but to dismiss skeptics just because you disagree. I studied the Bible and am well versed in it and the problem is that by it's own writings it is a contradiction. This is a work of man, used to control a society that needed direction and the Bible and Christianity filled that need and brought a social order to people that had none, the same thing happened with the Qu'ran which also was used to control a society that needed a social structure and allowed the people to be controlled. Only man would do such things...sorry but the God I believe in would not preach love and have passages of exclusion. If indeed we were given free will, then the sins of the past were a direct result of how we were made and we should not have to seek redemption for that flaw was created inside us. It's a paradox that the Bible created through interpretation. Do you think an all powerful God would entrust his words to a medium like paper that could so easily be damaged. If I was programming humans to have free will and knowledge then why would we have need for a book at all? There maybe a God who either created us or assisted us become what we are today but I'm pretty confident that you won't find him in a book.

I find much inspiration in the bible.. and believe it was all inspired by God. I also believe you get from the bible what you open up to receive. A skeptic can read anything and still not believe. . Because his mind was made up before reading or looking at it. My life before picking up a bible and reading some incredibly wise passages that touched and changed me.. was not on a very good path.. and for a long time. The bible has changed many lives. I hope you continue reading it.. and get touched as I did. Because I was a man who feared nothing and no one, and had a violent streak I am not proud of, .. i opened the bible and read about Samson. The next day.. i started with genesis and read the entire bible. Best thing I ever did!

I am sure the homosexuals and "witches" and the "non-believers" would agree that it changed their lives as well back when they had the Salem witch trials and stoned gays and witches to death along with the millions killed during the Crusades and the Inquistition. The bible is a good piece of literature with some good and bad points of view. I just think that a supreme being would not have trusted such a task of documenting his exploits and his son's to such a flawed creature such as man.

But we are not very flawed,... created in HIS image. I am sure there were different perspectives of teachings then,... as they are now. Not sure where you live,.. but I am in the bible belt. Put 100 Baptist preachers in one room,... give them a few verses to read,... and they all interpret it differently! ;) And they all have followers whom agree with their interpretation. I look forward to getting all the answers from Christ himself,... I plan to be there someday and get His take! ;)
reply

OK so if we are all created in HIS image why do we all not have the same blood types, the same color of eyes, the same heights, the same weights, the same IQ, the same in each and every way. So where did these flaws come from or perhaps we were created by multiple Gods, at least that would make sense because without a genetic mutation that altered us into a different being there should be no way our blood types would change unless there were other people at the time.

You can do some research,... I did and found a slew of info, but be prepared for a variety of answers. The answer to your question that I liked & best appealed to me was the tower of babel when God confused the language. As people migrated with their own, and around the world, there was obvious genetic changes that were carried from before babel,.. and inbreeding within their own. The migrattion played a role as well, where melatonins in the skin became factors depending on the regions,.. cool,... hot,... less clothes, more clothes having an effect etc. I think you will find some interesting reads brother! ;)

Btw,... I know we may differ on faith issues, but im interested in your responses to your own question,... in what do you believe accounts for the different races, skin colors etc. There seems to be a lot of theory,... nothing definitive. Thanks for not being a nasty critic by the way. Ive read some heated and insulting comments on this issue over my time on imgflip,.. and real life conversations. Some become @ssholes when their opinion is not accepted as fact.

I believe in evolution attributed to divine intervention...I believe in a higher power but not in the bible. I believe that the power that "created us" was a sudden force that was also the same type of force that created the earth and the universe. I believe that the life that we know as human was in fact a possible terraform-like process where a comet which crashed into the earth which killed off the dinosaurs also carried another form of life in its frozen mass. Hitting the earth causing climate changes and new life to appear. I have no real proof that is what happened but it seems just as good a theory as an entire universe being created in 6 days. I think God is a scientist and created and recreates as suits his divine will. I think he is far too busy with other worlds to be here babysitting us. It is only arrogance that makes us think that we are that important in a universe so vast and so full of possibilities.

Have to reply here,.. out of reply options below. I upvoted all your comments, even though not my meme, because I respect opinions when someone is not an @-hole. Thanks for that,... opinions are not facts as I can see you agree by your comments. My opinion isAlso, the universe cannot be self-caused nothing can create itself, because that would mean that it existed before it came into existence, which defies my logic. No known mechanism would cause a big bang .. without something divine causing it.. that I can see. This universe can't have any properties to explain coming into existence, because it wouldn't have any properties until it actually came into existence. For me as a Christian, this is only explained in the bible. Gods thoughts are higher than my thoughts, so im unable to explain this in a manner to make everyone a believer, but for me, it makes more sense than an accident. I appreciate your comments! I find other perspectives interesting,.. especially how they arrive at those conclusions. Thanks for sharing your deas. ;)

just an opinion, unlike so called experts I can admit we have no real idea of the creation of the earth whether it was design or a cosmic event without purpose...we're all just living on a rock trying to find meaning in the world. I don't have the answers, but then again there is no book with all the answers either.

when you study the bible, if you really want to know the truth behind those sacred scriptures you must not study it with the eyes of man, the eyes of man are tainted by sin and without the spirit you will will never see. The ignorant and blind will never see because he chooses to be blind, it is he who seeks the knowledge that finds it. 1 Corinthians 2:14: "The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned". why do you think we go out into the streets to preach, why do you think we dance and sing like madmen at church, why do you think that we are willing to give up our lives for Christ. We do these things because we have seen things, and felt things only the holy spirit can give. We saw these great miracles and manifestation of gods power only because we believe in god, salvation is not an obligatory thing it is voluntary just like believing is voluntary. Many atheists have told me there is no god because of the lack of scientific evidence which is complete stupidity, god does not work in the realm of science and logic, he works in the realm of the spirit and the unknown. Although in your eyes we look like idiots because we believe in angels and in a powerless figment of our imagination known as god. But if you take time to see things through our eyes, and instead of going on the internet to look for things to disprove god, why don't you look for things to prove him, God is there and he is watching and moving, and doing great things, miracles happening, angels appearing, prophecies coming to pass. The prophecy of the fig tree has come to pass among many more, i tell you we are in end times just waiting and begging Christ to come, we are like in the times of Noah except this time god will come with fire and not water. i pray that god open your eyes so you can see the marvelous things that come with god, and that i may see you in the heavens and together we can praise god almighty for all eternity :)

You know, fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And you thought it was a good idea to make a meme making fun of God's Word where he killed young people (not "children") for disrespecting and making fun of God's newly appointed prophet?
And let us make sure we make this distinction ... Elisha did not kill these people, God himself killed them. They were God's to do with as he pleases.
God is not JUST the warm fuzzy, lovey dovey, I love you so much, yes I do, yes I do, yes I do, shmaltzy little god people make him out to be these days. God is GOD the author of your every breath. The cells in your body hold together by His will.
I say this to you because there are things you are missing. If you choose to take that event as you are seeing it now then it is a choice. But if you want to know "How could God do such a thing" I suggest you look into it a bit more. Better still talk to someone face to face who can answer those questions.
God bless.

still as I stated the Bible is not the word of God and it is not perfect and I am sure a perfect God would not create such a flawed testament to his works and his sons life and more importantly his death which is the whole basis of the religion. The Old Testament was written for the Jewish faith and the Christians created the New Testament because of Christ and his teachings of peace and how he died to absolve us of sins. However even the New Testament is full of contradiction for example: Jesus' last words

MAT 27:46,50: "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, eli, lama sabachthani?" that is to say, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" ...Jesus, when he cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost."

LUK 23:46: "And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, "Father, unto thy hands I commend my spirit:" and having said thus, he gave up the ghost."

JOH 19:30: "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished:" and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

Again, you need to sort out presumptions from what's there. None of the three citations state that they're quoting Jesus' _final_ words; that's only your own inserted presumption.

In addition, you're not correct that Jesus' death is "the whole basis" of Christianity. It's his resurrection.

And finally, "the Christians" who created the New Testament were (with the exception of Luke) lifelong followers of the Jewish faith. They became Christians because they acknowledged that Jesus was the long-promised Messiah.

that's exactly what they are stating by using quotes and then saying he dies after...if you are going to deny that then no wonder there are so many different interpretations of the same events...and just an FYI you cannot have a resurrection without a death

OK... suppose I told you "This evening I came home from work, bought my cousin a Christmas present, and went to bed." And then I said, "This evening I came home from work, got my son some supper, spent some time on Imgflip, and went to bed". And then: "I came home from work, waited up for my wife, and after she got home I went to bed."

Have I contradicted myself? Of course not. All 3 statements are accurate, they simply include different details. (OK, OK, I haven't gone to bed yet... but give me some slack, it's on the agenda. :) )

But anyway, apply the same common sense to the Bible. Matthew said the statement he quoted was at "about the ninth hour." John said the statement he quoted was after "he had received the vinegar." Luke doesn't mention any particular before/at event, so it's an open question whether Jesus died immediately after, or a minute later, or even longer. No contradiction. Just different details from the whole sequence.
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
you are not quoting anyone are you? if someone says he said "I am dying" and then died. That means that was his last words. They didn't he said "I am dying" then told others other statements or that he mumbled incoherently then died. It's pretty clear that they are documenting his final words but then again all this is documented decades after his death and from hearsay. Before you try and explain contradiction and witness accounts perhaps you need to know the definitions because I am thinking you are unclear on sentence structure and quotes.
reply
0 ups
Take a closer look at the quotes you presented above. Matthew recorded two times he cried out, not one. The first was when he cried out, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" For the second cry, Matthew doesn't record the words. So what were the words when he cried out again? Seems like the Luke quote, since Luke also mentions a loud cry (without saying, you'll note, that it was the ONLY loud cry).

Now look at the John quote: "...he said "It is finished" and he bowed his head and gave up the ghost. No "then" in there at all... so your example that uses "then" is irrelevant. "It is finished" could have occurred any time between drinking the vinegar and when he died. It's no different than if I said, "I got up, and said "Good morning" to my wife, and went to work." (Your conclusion would have to be that I went to work without my glasses, teeth unbrushed, and in my pajamas.)

Put it all together:
1. Ninth hour
2. "My God, my God..."
3. Drinks vinegar (this is after he said "I am thirsty" -- you left that one out)
4. "It is finished."
5. "Father, unto thy hands..."
6. Bows head, dies

Easy as that. Google up "seven last words of Christ", you'll find any number of sources that present this overall order; it isn't just me cooking it up on the fly.
