The New Testament contradicts itself on whether Christians should believe in the Old Testament or not.Crocodile Bani said:Most of the quotes above are from the old testament which as far as I am concerned, if you believe in Jesus and are a Christian, are completely irrelevant to you. Never understood the term Judeo-Christian because they are completely different faiths.
Jesus has said, ?The Scripture cannot be broken? (John 10:35). He referred to Scripture as ?the commandment of God? (Matthew 15:3) and as the ?Word of God? (Mark 7:13). He also indicated that it was indestructible: ?Until Heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the law, until all is accomplished? (Matthew 5:18).
On the other hand, Paul declares the old testament as being outdated, ?By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear? (Hebrews 8:13). So, whose words do you prefer, Jesus's or Paul's?
I use Judaeo-Christian when I'm talking about the bible as a whole. The Old Testament is not purely Christian, even though Christians may abide to it.
