Atheists like to mock Christians by accusing them of not obeying God’s law regarding stoning a child who back-talks to h/her parents. Or they like to say that we should be killing all the people in the next town over because that’s what the Bible tells us to do. It’s scary to know they actually believe what they’re saying. No one reads the Bible more literally and more carelessly than atheists and because of this, they actually think that the Old Testament Law is still in effect. That leads to more than a few questions.
If the Law was still in effect, why did Jesus touch dead bodies
If the Law was still in effect, why didn’t Jesus wash before eating
If the Law was still in effect, why did Jesus harvest on the Sabbath
If the Law was still in effect, why did Jesus touch people with leprosy
If the Law was still in effect, why did Jesus turn ceremonial water it into wine
If the Law was still in effect, why did Jesus touch an unclean (bleeding) woman.
All these laws Jesus ignored but held in high esteem the law that marriage was between a man and a woman and that marriage should not be broken apart.
All these laws Jesus ignored but also said that He came to fulfill the law which could be narrowed to two points:
Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and
Love your neighbour as yourself.
Why do atheists advocate keeping the dietary, cleanliness and holy day laws (which Jesus ignored) while advocating breaking God’s law regarding marriage and love (which Jesus upheld)?
Atheism, confusing to the core.
