The New Testament is NOT the word of God!!! - God is not that Stupid!
Jesus said He would Come Back to his Generation. "What happened, Jesus???"
Assuredly I say to you, that this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Mark 13:30
Truly I say to you, there are some standing here that will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in the Kingdom. Matthew 16:28
Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Matthew 24:34
Christians Make Up Translations
KJV – For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. (Psalm 22:16)
The real translation:
יז כִּי סְבָבוּנִי, כְּלָבִים: עֲדַת מְרֵעִים, הִקִּיפוּנִי;כָּאֲרִי, יָדַי וְרַגְלָי.
17. For dogs have encompassed me; a company of evil-doers have inclosed me; like a lion, they are at my hands and my feet.
Where is the lion part of the translation??? “Like a lion” refers to King David being pursued by his enemies who are often referred to as a lion (as in Psalms 7 and 17). And the Hebrew word “hiKipuni” means they pressed me on all sides, holed me up.
“pierced my hands and feet”??? What a blatant fabrication. What a joke.
Just Another Fraudulent Translation
The Christian New Testament;
''A deliverer will come out of Zion [Israel] and he will turn away
ungodliness from Jacob . . . when I take away their sins."
(Romans 11:26, citing Isaiah 59:20) (NKJ)
Again, a total fabrication of what the Old Testament says by totally changing the translation to falsely claim that Jesus takes away sins. Even the Christian’s own translation of the Old Testament doesn’t say what is quoted in the Christian New Testament.
The Christian Old Testament;
"A redeemer will come to Zion and to those who turn from
transgression in Jacob." (Isaiah 59:20) (NKJ)
The correct translation is;
''A redeemer will come to Zion, and to those of Jacob who repent
from willful sin." (Isaiah 59:20)
The New Testament is the Word of God? It’s the word of a fraud.
“He [Jesus] came and resided in a city called Nazareth, that what was spoken through the prophets might be fulfilled. ‘He shall be called a Nazarene.’” (Matthew 2:23)
Where in the Old Testament does it say this??? … IT DOESN'T SAY THIS ANYWHERE !!!! It doesn't even say this anywhere in the rejected gospels.
Where else has any prophet written this or has anyone else claimed to have heard this from any prophet??? It is an utter FABRICATION.
Also at the time of the writings of the books of the Old Testament there was no such place as Nazareth.
New Testament Can’t Count Again
Then Joseph sent and called his father Jacob and all his relatives to him, seventy-five people. Acts 7:14
There were 70 people (Jacob & all relatives) entering into the land of Egypt which included the one born right before they entered Egypt.
46 All those who went to Egypt with Jacob--those who were his direct descendants, not counting his sons' wives--numbered sixty-six persons.
47 With the two sons who had been born to Joseph in Egypt, the members of Jacob's family, which went to Egypt, were seventy in all. Gen 46:26-7
The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy in all; Joseph was already in Egypt. Ex 1:5
[Moses speaking here to the Israelites:] "Your forefathers who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the LORD your God has made you numerous as the stars in the sky. Deut 10:22
A Fraudulent Verse of a Future Event with a Past Tense
The Christian New Testament
"Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have
prepared for me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had
no pleasure." (Hebrews 10:5 citing Psalm 40:6-8) (NKJ)
What a FRAUD. Just a total substitution of a phrase that is not even close to the actual translation. “a body you have prepared” compared to the correct version “my ears you have opened.” The Christians get the translation correct when they translate their Old Testament.
The Christian Old Testament
"Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; my ears You have
opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require."
The verse of the Old Testament is in the past perfect tense but the Christian New Testament falsely writes the verse referring to some “body” future event and then uses the past tense. This is another example of Christians trying to convince anyone that the writing in the Old Testament prophesized Jesus as the Messiah. No, not the Old Testament, only their fraudulent New Testament.
He will be the Messiah in the future
The Messiah will reign over a restored Jewish homeland and bring about a utopian world of universal peace and universal knowledge of God. (Isaiah 11:1-9; Jeremiah 33:14-16; Ezekiel 34:23- 30, 37:24-28; Micah 4:1-4; Zechariah 8:23; Psalm 86:9 … and more.) Jesus did not fulfill this when he was alive which is admitted by the Christians.
To say he will be the Messiah in future … the same can be claimed by any false prophet…… and is.
Taking up Snakes and Drinking Poisons
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:16-18
I hope Christians don’t think that because of this verse they are immune to the harmful effects of snakebites or drinking deadly poisons.
Believe …. or be condemned! Just “believe” a nice vague statement that could mean anything. But you must “believe”……. or else you will be condemned to HELL for eternity!!!!!!!!!
Flowing out of Your Belly
"He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." John 7:38
Jesus says that those who believe in him will, as he himself puts it, "have living waters flowing out of their bellies". Well that sounds like lots of fun, but there is NO SUCH SCRIPTURE in the Old Testament or anywhere else that says anything close to that! Just another one of many fraudulent quotes of scripture.
Jesus Can’t Count
In Matthew Chapter 12 the Pharisees asked Jesus for a sign. He answered that like Jonah being in the stomach of a whale, so shall he be in the earth three days and three nights.
As for Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so shall the son of man (I thought he was the son of god) be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:30-40
Jesus was buried Friday afternoon before sunset as seen in Matthew 28:1
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. Matthew 28:1
They rested on the Sabbath as seen in Matthew 28:1
Jesus was allegedly resurrected Sunday morning at dawn.
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. Matthew 28:1
Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. John 20:1
Conclusion = NOT three full days and only two nights.
Two days and two nights John 20:1.
Matthew, Mark, & Luke say;
Three days and two nights. Mark 16:2, Luke 24:1, Matthew 28:1.
Jesus said,”that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the anctuary and the altar.” Matthew 23:35
Correction Jesus – Zechriah was the son of Jehoiada, not Barachiah. (2 Chron. 24:20-21)
“…How he [David] entered the house of God in the days of Albiathar the high priest and ate the showbread …” (Mark 2:25-26)
Correction again Jesus – Ahimelech was the High Priest at that time, not Albiathar. (1 Samuel 21:2)
Jesus said …
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink … He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living waters. (John 7:37-38)
Correction again Jesus – there is NO SUCH SCRIPTURE in the Old Testament. That is why the Christians never give a citation for this quote by Jesus.
Honor thy Father and Mother. Not Jesus
Jesus didn’t subscribe to the commandments to;
1) Honor thy father and mother, and
2) to promptly bury the dead.
Honor your father and your mother as Hashem, your God commanded you, so that your days will be lengthened, and so that it will be good for you upon the land that Hashem your God, gives you. Deuteronomy 5:16
… you shall surely bury him on that day … you shall not contaminate your Land, which Hashem, your God, gives you as an inheritance. Deuteronomy 21:23
Then another of his disciples said to him, ‘lord, let me first go and bury my father.’ But Jesus said to his disciple, ‘Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.’ Now when he got into a boat, his disciples followed him. Matthew 8:21-23
Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! Matthew 12: 47-49,
31 Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. 32 A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.” 33 “Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked. 34 Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Mark 3:31-34
20 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.” 21 He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.” Luke 8:20-21
Mark Characterized Jesus as a False Prophet
Mark in his writings stated that Jesus was fulfilling a verse in the Book of Zechariah 13:2-7.
All of you will be made to stumble because of me [Jesus] this night. For it is written: I [God] will strike the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered. Mark 14:27
Mark conveniently left out the part in the verse he was quoting from the Old Testamet that says God will strike the shepherd who should not live because he will be a false prophet who will speak lies in the name of the Lord. Mark [in the "Word of God"] identified Jesus as a lying false prophet that should not live.
And if anyone still prophesies, their father and mother, to whom they were born, will say to them, 'You must die, because you have told lies in the LORD's name.' Then their own parents will stab the one who prophesies. Zechariah 13:3
When He (Jesus) Sins?
The Christian New Testament (NKJ) Hebrews 1:5:
"I will be to him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son." (Hebrews 1:5, purporting to quote 2 Samuel 7:14 in the Jewish Bible)
Note how the translator capitalized the word He and Son. This is to justify the Christian fantasy of three Gods in one God (the Trinity). But the translator fails to do the same in the translation of the Christian Old Testament. Also note how this Father-Son statement was deliberately taken out of context. The New Testament deliberately left out the rest of the verse where it says “when he sins.” Christians say Jesus was without sin!
The Christian Old Testament
"I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men." (2 Samuel 7: 14) (NKJ)
The more accurate translation is;
"I shall be a Father unto him and he shall be a son unto Me, so that when he sins I will chastise him with the rod of men and with afflictions of human beings." (2 Samuel 7: 14)
The "son" referred to by the prophet Samuel was King Solomon, (King David's son) not Jesus. King Solomon built God's House, the holy Temple in Jerusalem. The book of Chronicles in the Old Testament clearly reveals the identity of this son:
CHRONICLES: "His name shall be Solomon ... he shall build a house for My name and I will be a Father to him and he will be a son to Me." (1 Chronicles 22:9-10)
Did You just Lie, Jesus???
8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.
9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. John 7:8-10
Get the Disciples Straight
Nathaniel – a disciple in Book of John -- but -- NOT in Book of Mark, Book of Matthew, Book of Luke or Book of Acts.
Joseph of Arimathea – a disciple in Book of John -- but -- NOT in Book of Mark, Book of Matthew, Book of Luke or Book of Acts.
Disciple Jesus Loved – described in Book of John -- but -- NOWHERE ELSE. Name was hidden.
Thaddeus – a disciple in Books of Mark and Matthew -- but -- NOT in Books of Luke, John, or Acts.Book of Luke, Book of John or Book of Acts.
Simon – is called the Canaanite in Books of Mark and Matthew. He is called the zealot is Books of Luke and Book of Acts. In the Book of John there is no Simon but Judas is called the son of Simon.
Judas – Book of John described as the son of Simon. Book of Luke described TWO Judas’. Book of Acts described Judas as the SON of JAMES.
Only one Judas is described in Books of Mark, Book of Acts, and Book of Matthew. Two Judas’ – described in Book of John and the Book of Luke. The second Judas in Book of John is described as “not Isacariot.” The second Judas in the Book of Luke and the only Judas mentioned in the Book of Mark and Book of Matthew is described as “Isacariot.”
The Book of John and Acts only named eleven disciples.
How did Jesus Choose his Disciples?
The Books of Matthew and John say that Jesus chose his disciples several at a time from different locations. The Books of Mark and Luke disagree. They say all disciples were chosen at once.
Matthew & John: One or two of his brothers (uncertain), fishermen from Galilee, several followers of John the Baptist. Matthew 4:18, 21, 8:19 John 1:37, 40, 43
Mark & Luke: Called unto him his disciples and of them he chose twelve. Luke 6:12-13 Mark 3:13-14
Who was it at the Receipt of Custom?
Who was the man sitting at the receipt of custom that Jesus called to be his disciple?
Matthew: It was Matthew Matthew 9:9
Mark: It was Levi Mark 2:14
The author of the Book of Matthew doesn’t seem to be Matthew. Why would he use his name as it it were someone else instead of the first person “me”?
Paul’s 13 Apostles
Paul described the people who saw Jesus after he had “risen.”
… he [Jesus] was seen by Cephas, and afterwords by the twelve … then he was seen by James, and afterwards by all the apostles. 1 Corinthians 15:5-7
A question for Paul is, Are "the twelve" different than "the apostles?” Cephas is associated with “the twelve” so that makes 13 total.
The ninth and tenth chapters of Isaiah are not about any messianic prophecies. They are an historical account by Isaiah about King Hezekiah, AKA the prince of peace. The verses are in the past tense. Isaiah described how God saved King Hezekiah (one of the greatest Jewish Kings) and the Jewish People from King Sannacherib of Assyria's massive military attack more than 2700 years ago.
The Trial of Jesus is NOT Believeable
John says No Trial
According to John there was no trial of Jesus. One man "advised" the Jewish leaders to kill him.
and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jewish leaders that it would be good if one man died for the people. John 18:13- 14
Mark and Matthew describe a trial.
64 But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked him, "Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?"
62 "I am," said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."
63 The high priest tore his clothes. "Why do we need any more witnesses?" he asked.
64 "You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?" They all condemned him as worthy of death.
63 But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God."
64 "You have said so," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."
65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy.
66 What do you think?" "He is worthy of death," they answered. Mark 14:61-64
Jesus claiming to be Christ, or the anointed one, or the Messiah is NOT Blasphemy under Jewish law. Jesus said several times that he was the “son of man.” Even if he said he was the son of God, isn't every male on the planet the son of God? But more to the point, every anointed King of Israel was bestowed the honorary title of "son of God." Psalm 2:7. This title is NOT a claim of deity.
The two "Christian" gospels of Jesus having the described trial would be blatantly against Jewish law. They say the trial occurred in a private residence. The Sanhedrin was prohibited from trying a criminal case outside the Temple grounds. The Sanhedrin conducted trials in the Hall of Hewn Stones in the Temple. The trials had to commence and finish during the day time (No night trials as alleged with Jesus). Jewish law prohibits capital convictions on self-incriminating statements. The law requires two fully qualified witnesses. No exceptions. The Gospels claim Jesus was convicted solely on his testimony alone which clearly violates Jewish law. The creative writers of the Gospels were not familiar with Sanhedrin law.
New Testament says Jews were not permitted to execute a person?
Not so New Testament writers. The Jews did not have to turn over a person to the Romans to be executed. Mark 14:64, 15:1, 11-13; Matthew 27:1, 2, 20 . The New Testament writers themselves later cite executions by Jews during that period as permissible.
1 The high priest tried, convicted, and executed Stephen. Acts 6:12 15, 7:59.
2 A woman about to be executed in the Temple, John 8:2-11.
3 Paul didn't want a Jewish trial so he insisted on a Roman trial. Acts 25:11,15
4 Paul stated that the High Priest gave him authority to put to death the saints by "I cast my vote against them. Acts 26:10
5 King Herod, a King of the Jews, executed John the Baptist. Mark 6:27
6 King Herod executed James, the son of Zebedee. Acts 12:2
7 Historian Josephus reported Jews condemned to death by the Sanhedrin during the Roman occupation.
8 Josephus also revealed that the Sanhedrin could actually execute Roman citizens for entering the sanctuary of the Temple. Antiquites of the Jews, 14:9:3; and Wars of the Jews, 6:2:4, both by Josephus.
In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Hebrews 9:22
The only law I can think of is Leviticus 17:11 which deals with the prohibition of the consumption of blood.
There are many examples in the Old Testament where sins were forgiven without any "shedding of blood"; the story of Jonah, the story of the golden calf, the story of David and Bathsheba. Aaron used incense to atone for sin and a plague. The poor could bring fine flour to atone for sin. But blood sacrifices at the Temple was only used for the atonement of unintentional sin. Blood did not atone for intentional sin.
Romans Crucified Jesus but Jews were Responsible???
Notice how the Constantine New Testament made sure to blame the Jews for the death of "the Savior of mankind", instead of the real crucifyer in the story the Romans. Just another Christian contradiction.
Was It Lawful for the Jews to put to Death Jesus?
The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die. (John 19:7.)
The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death. (John 18:31.)
Christians Just Changed the Verse a Little Bit
The Christians try to claim a prophecy of a coming Jesus by changing the translation of the verses to the future tense. The Christian translation capitalizes the word Son to show a God. Also note Jesus was never called Counselor, God (mighty or otherwise), Father (everlasting or otherwise), or prince of peace anywhere in the Christian Bible.
Christian Old Testament NKJ (Isaiah 9:6-7)
"For unto us a child is born, Unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
"For a child has been born to us [past tense], a son [not "Son''] has been given [past tense] to us, and the dominion will rest on his shoulder; the Wondrous Adviser, Mighty God, Eternal Father, called his name [not "His name will be called"] Sar-Shalom [Prince of Peace];
And at the end of Isaiah 9:7 the Christian translation was changed to suit their Jesus is a God theology instead of a correct translation.
Christian Old Testament NKJ
… establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever, the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
… establish it and sustain it through justice and righteousness, from now to eternity. The zealousness of Hashem, Master of Legions, will accomplish this."
Nice try Christians.
The Holy Ghost was bestowed on. . . or … before … or after … Pentecost
19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together…
22 And when he had said this he breathed on them, and said to them, receive you the Holy Spirit. John 20:22
Day of Pentecost
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come they were all of one accord in one place. . . . And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:1, 4
3 He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.
4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 1:5
None of the Biblical passages about the Messiah mentions that he will be resurrected from the dead. Even if someone is resurrected – this does not necessarily qualify him to be the Messiah. The prophet Elisha resurrected a child, and Jesus allegedly resurrected Lazarus. Does this qualify the child or Lazarus to be the Messiah? Just like the Christians say there are three persons in one God, does this now mean there are three persons in one Messiah also???
Was Christ Tempted in the Wilderness?
And immediately [after Christ's baptism] the spirit driveth him into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness forty days tempted of Satan. (Mark 1:12, 13.)
And the third day [after Christ's baptism] there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee. . . . Both Jesus was called and his disciples to the marriage. (John 2:1, 2.)
Christ preached his first Sermon on the Mountain or on the Plain???
And seeing the multitude he went up into a mountain, and when he was set his disciples came unto him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying. (Matt. 5:1, 2.)
And he came down with them and stood in the plain; and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people . . . came to hear him. . . . And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples and said. (Luke 6:17, 20.)
Was John in Prison when Jesus went into Galillee???
Now, after that John was put in prison Jesus came into Galilee preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. (Mark 1:14.)
The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee. (John 1:43.)
And after these things came Jesus with his disciples into the land of Judea. . . . And John was baptizing in Enon. . . . For John was NOT YET cast into prison. (John 3:22, 23, 24.)
Were Christ’s Disciples Commanded to go forth with a Staff and Sandals???
And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse; but be shod with sandals. (Mark 6:8, 9.)
Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses; nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats,neither shoes, nor yet staves. (Matt. 10:9, 10.)
Was John the Baptist Elijah???
This is Elijah which was to come. (Matt. 11:14.)
And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? and he said I am not. (John 1:21.)
Was the Woman who besought Jesus from Canaan or from Greece???
And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. (Matt. 15:22.)
The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation, and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. (Mark 7:26.)
Did Luke insert Someone into a Family Tree???
And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years and begat Salah. (Gen. 11:12.)
Yes, Luke inserted Cainan into the linage.
Which was the son of Sala, which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad. (Luke 3:35, 36.)
Was Christ the only one to ascend to Heaven???
No man hath ascended up to heaven but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of Man. (John 3:13.)
How about Elijah?
And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. (2 Kings 2:11.)
Christ’s Witness of Himself is True or Not True.
I am one that bear witness of myself. . . . Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true. John 8:18, 14
If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. John 5:31
It’s not Us, It’s YOU
19 "Why go ye about to kill me?"
20 "The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee? John 7:19-20
Should We be Afraid of those that wish to Kill Us???
Be not afraid of them that kill the body. [Luke 12:4]
Yet Christ himself was afraid of those that wished to kill him.
After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. John 7:1]
Paul liked the Military Butch Haircut
Doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man have long hair, it is a shame to him? 1 Cor 11:14
Isn't Jesus portrayed as having long hair and a beard??? Old Testament says -
And no razor shall come on his head; for the child shall be a nazarite to God from the womb. Judg 13:5
All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come on his head; until the days be fulfilled in the which he separats himself to the Lord, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow. Num 6:5
Paul Didn't Like Women
It is good for a man not to touch a woman. [1 Cor 7:1]
For I [Paul] would that all men were even as I myself. . . . It is good for them if they abide even as I. [1 Cor 7:7, 8]
But what about this …
Marriage is honorable in all. Heb. 13:4]
For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife. [Matthew 19:5]
And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone: I will make a help-meet for him. [Gen 2:18]
And God said to them, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth. [Gen 1:28
Jesus Only Benefits the Uncircumcised
Behold, I Paul, say to you, that if you be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. [Gal 5:2]
It's righteous to be uncircumcised??? Here is God speaking in the Old Testament - -
This is my covenant which you shall keep between me and you and your seed after you: every man and child among you shall be circumcised. [Gen 17:10]
Much Prayers.. you need to and you don't need to
Because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. . . . And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night to him? [Luke 18:5, 7]
Because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. [Luke 11:8
But when you pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be you not therefore like to them; for your father knows what things you have need of before you ask him. [Matthew 6:7, 8]
New Testament has new Divorce rules
But I say to you, that whoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery. [Matthew 5:32]
When a man has taken a wife and married her, and it come to pass that she found no favor in his eyes, . . . Then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. [Deut. 24:1]
Servants, obey in all things your masters after the flesh. . . . And whatever you do, do it as heartily as to the lord. Col. 3:22, 23]
Be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also, to the froward. [1 Peter 2:18]
Forget about It
Be not you the servants of men. [1 Cor 7:23]
You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. Matthew 4:10
Neither be you called masters; for one is your master, even Christ. [Matthew 23:10]
Obey your Rulers they are God's ministers…..wait… strike that
Let every soul be subject to the higher powers. For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God. Whoever, therefore, resists the power, resists the ordinance of God; and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. . . . For this cause pay you tribute; for they are God's ministers, attending continually on this very thing. [Rom 13:1, 2, 3, 6]
The scribes and pharisees sit in Moses' seat; all, therefore, whatever they bid you observe, that observe and do. [Matthew 23:2, 3]
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake; whether it be to the king as supreme, or to the governors as to them that are sent of him for the punishment of evil doers. [1 Peter 2:13, 14]
