Why ignorant pos? Please explain what Poppo said that was wrong or inexact. Have you any knowledge at all of the bible?
Whenever people wish to degrade the Bible, they point to the old laws and their penalties, claiming them to be the product of a harsh and unloving God. Yet, if you understand the purpose of these laws, you'll see that they weren't really harsh or oppressive, because nobody was really required to follow them, other than those who freely chose to live in the land of Israel.
