Well im listening to Jesus and im worried that he failed to mention many evils inflicted against the week in our society. Ive already stated many times jesus did not condemn slavery nor pedophilia, nor racism, nor oppression of women and many things. The simple answer is he didnt because Jews of that time thought along those lines. Its that simple.
How could Jesus fail to see any of those things ? How could this god fail to see or predict the future and realise it would be smart and avoid much pain to spend a few lines of condemning these evils ?
Except that he did not fail to speak against anything. In addition to the couple things I pointed out already (which are just a bare minimum)... His words cover every possible evil you could think of... because love covers such (as does the golden rule... unless you, (whomever) are twisting that to suit yourself - in which case you are revealing what is in your heart, are you not?) Same as it reveals what is in the hearts of people, when they use that as an excuse (well, he did not come out and directly say that I can't do 'such and such') to do whatever they want. Like finding a loophole. But you can't hide what is in you, from God.
Problem is almost nobody listened to Jesus for the remainder of the NT
Even IF that were true... (it is not... but people do fail and sin... all people... including those who follow and belong to Christ)... that is on them, is it not? That is not on Christ.
THe apostles refused to even eat, talk to gentiles etc for much of the NT until much later. Somehow they seem to have formed a very different opnion to the one you "read" from that text. THis same idea can be found in the 10Commandments, where it says not to steal,
but then the next page the jews kill and steal from their pagan neighbours. THe problem is of course the 10C only apply to equals their fellow jews. We see the same in the American constitution, where all men are created equal, but the problem is in 150 years ago
everybody knew the "men" did not include blacks.
Actually, I think the problem is that you fail to see many of the things that were written into the law, because your eyes are searching for what is wrong, so that you can prove (to yourself? to others?) that God is wrong, does not exist, whatever. There are laws written that protect the rights of the non-Israelite as well.
Delegating someone as less than 'men' so that you can find a loophole in the law, is also on... men.
You will then see that what i post easily outnumbers what you post.
Does that really matter? Is that how you determine what is true? Why? What makes THAT true?
You go ahead and do what you have to, but you might want to consider if your parameters here are truth, or just what you want to be truth.
Not only do you have to be right that 'I have more than you' makes you right; you have to be sure that you understand everything you have decided is on 'your side'. From past conversations with you, and even this one (considering orphans), you do not understand half of what you think determines your 'pov'.
IF god does not change then why does his laws change ? The truth is Jesus said the Torah was perfect and will never change in Mat 5.
HIS laws do not.
But not everything written is from him (or has remained as it was originally given)
Christ made this clear as well when he described how the law of divorce was given BY MOSES... because the hearts of the Israelites were too hard to accept the law of God. (no divorce, other than for adultery)
So they got an 'addendum' added, that would cause the least harm, according to what their hearts were willing to allow.
I've given you this scripture (from Christ) a couple of times, but if you want me to quote it again for you, then I will.
(again, all quotes are from you)
