About Matthew 5:17 (Jesus said he has not come to change law)
So I asked a theist, who apparently went to school for the topic of Christianity, why god would endorse slavery (and was going to get to the other insane things that the bible says to do) but he/she said that god made a new covenant with man in the new testament, and that that stuff no longer applied. Although he/she still said genesis is true. Then I gave this link, and just says it was a different time and that things were different because Jesus died on the cross.

I asked for the verse this new covenant was in, and apparently it's scattered. This is the link he/she gave me.

I gave this verse, but apparently god didn't "change", what changed was that he sacrificed his son..
Quote:Matthew 5:17
"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."
After all that he/she brought up a personal experience. Isn't it frustrating when someone thinks they heard god/jesus/angel tell them something? They just hinge the entire debate on that, and it's completely ridiculous. They really don't understand the brain enough to claim they know it was god/jesus/angel that spoke to them. There is such a thing as auditory hallucinations.

EDIT: he/she said that the slavery and such did not apply because jesus said he was not here to change rules. Apparently the slave stuff wasn't rules, same with stoning people for tons of silly things. The ten commandments are safe because they are laws

What do you guys say against this argument that some things don't apply
any more because of... Any reason really. What reasons have you heard
for this, and why are they bullshit? Thanks Smile
