The Word of God has a spirit to it that is within its letter. We talk about the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. It is the same with God's Word. Often the letter of the Word makes little sense to people today compared to when it was first given to humanity. It will seem to be without relevance or self-contradictory or downright wrong, but in a deeply symbolic way it's talking about what is happening within a person when they seek to live their life along spiritually sound lines. This symbolism is quite clear and has been revealed for 250 years now in the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.

Too many abominations: stoned for using 2 different types of threads? No more blends! 2 different crops in same field, cursing, disobedient children, sabbath working = death. Sell daughters into slavery, eating shellfish or pork, owning slaves.... sounds like a great world.

Yes. I like Sharia.

The Bibles "teachings" is to respect others and have as much, or more, concern for them as you do yourself. I don't see a problem with that.
Answer #6 | 23/07 2014 11:07
No because then Christians wouldn't be able to cherry pick the Bible like they always do. Also, millions would suffer at the hands of Christian again.
Answer #7 | 23/07 2014 11:12
Yes but it won't be strict as many people love to sin. The only time it would be good is in heaven.
Answer #8 | 23/07 2014 11:08
No. Human nature is to muck up everything. Remember when Jesus came the people were very "religious" which was the exact problem:They obeyed the laws but they didn't love God. They only feared His punishment.

FIRST, discern between Bible and scripture (2 Tim. 3:16-17). Currently they are not the same; especially in USA.

Laws are for law breakers. So laws should not be required! Christianity in its simplest form is doing what is right for the most with out causing unnecessary hardship on others. If we are looking to share what we have in excess- then no one would be stealing. So yes if the world followed the teachings of Christ the world would be better off. There would be no crimes. Christianity is about defining what is right and perfect. Laws only define what is wrong!

Sure, why not? You would be my slave, and if I beat you seriously enough to fracture your skull, rupture your spleen, cause massive internal bleeding, and let you lay there in untreated agony "for a day or two" before you finally die, the Bible says that there shall be NO punishment done to me.
