Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent. Full Story

Christianity says a non Christian man can kill his wife and children also non Christian, get caught go to jail say rub a dub dub Jesus convert and he go to heaven while his victims are in hell or purgatory! This is true and you know it.

Such a sick twisted evil religion!

And Jesus specifically said he was not there to change even one word of the ancient Jewish prophets let alone abolish their laws.

<quoted text>
No, he said that he was not here to destroy the laws, he was here to fulfill the prophecy. Explain how a law can be fulfilled.
Christ "fulfilled" the demands of the Mosaic law, which called for perfect obedience in the Mosiac law. His sacrifice done away with ''us'' having to keep the Mosiac law. The OT was a school master

The Greek for 'fulfil' is pleroo. It occurs on many New Testament occasions, including Matthew 5:17. The range of meanings for this word are,'to fill up,''to fill to the brim,''to level up'(that is, in the sense of levelling up a hollow). Figuratively, the meaning would be 'to satisfy,''to execute,''to finish,' or 'to complete.'

In the New Testament,'pleroo' usually has the sense of accomplishing and satisfying, as in the case of prophecies. We may also read of a net being full (Matthew 13:48), and of joy being full (John 15:11; 16:24; 1 John 1:4; 2 John 1:12). In each case in those Scriptures,'pleroo' is used. These examples help us to see that 'pleroo' does not need to be forced in meaning. In Matthew 1:22-23, the miracle of Mary’s virgin pregnancy and the resulting birth has fulfilled (Gk:'pleroo') the prophecy of Isaiah 7:14; thereby that prophecy was satisfied, completed, accomplished.

Jesus was stating that the Hebrew Bible should not be set aside, it still held authority. He did not come to destroy the Old Testament (the Law and Prophets), but He certainly did come to fulfil or satisfy, that revelation since He brought a superior revelation, that of the New Covenant.
The other two major points are; not one dot shall be taken from the law, until heaven and Earth pass away.
Earth has not passed away! Trust me on this! I live there.
Jesus goes on to say, "until all is fulfilled". Has all the prophecies been fulfilled? Has the prophecy on the second coming been fulfilled?
No. So there are three major clues for you that god's laws, according to the bible, are still as valid today as they ever were.
Valid as in still the inspired Holy Scripture of the Torah, but not binding to Christians today, for the simple fact Christ fullfilled the Mosiac law...

You are taken this out of context, and applying to ALL prophecies. Which isnt the case here.

When you state that ''until all is fullfilled'', Christ was meaning and speaking about his purpose for coming, which was to be crucified and resurrected and fullfill all that was spoken of him in the OT.

Here is a nugget for you to pick through. When was satan tossed from heaven?
Revelation 12:2-11
New International Version (NIV)
2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.
its all MYTHOLOGY dude,grow up!

Nope, science does not concern itself with magic. There is no way to test for it. Nothing in magic is repeatable on demand. In short, there is no evidence of to support a god or gods.

Again, there is no evidence for a god or gods. There is no reason to believe that a supreme being demanded that a girl who was not a virgin on her wedding should be stone or burnt to death.

Did you ever ask yourself, why is my god so interested in girls virginity and not boys? Why was it so terrible for the girl to have premarital sex, but it was a non-issue for the boys?

Unless, you are lying, then you should supply equal energy towards those who claim that God does not exist and ask them why, since you claim that you do not know if a God or gods exist. Don't you think you should settle that issue first?

You see, the irrational person believes in black holes, evolution, speciation, the laws of physics in time and space, and then responds with proof of why you believe as events in the Bible by a God you do not believe in.
Crimes against humanity, so when did God become human? Do you kill ants and kill grass and weeds? Well, God calls useless sinners as no more than weeds growing among grass with one purpose to snuff out the life from the living.
The main issue here is that you can not judge, decipher or attribute ANYTHING to a God you claim does not exist.
If you accept that God does exist, then you except that He is God and not human, and you are but an ant in His design of things. If you don't like ants being killed, then don't step on grass. All that is here is for God's purpose and your life may be expiring, since it does have a time stamp.

Oh, so they held the same belief back then as they do today. I thought they may had been some other factor to their killing crusades.

You may 'verify' and 'prove' the steps in your knowledge of God, but you have not shown that to others so they also see it. With science facts that are proved, not only have they been found and proved, but they have been shown to man to be true, and man understands that. Some science theories based on extrapolating beyond what is now proved, of course, has not yet been proved, but the point at which science has arrived tends to point in the direction of the theory being a fact.

With God we still have had no evidence presented to the masses with which we can agree that from that we might extrapolate the existence of a super invisible being.

Talking of Black Holes which have not actually been proved, but are suggested by what man has observed about the universe, is not the same as talking of God based on what some men wrote in ancient books, which have already had parts of them proved to not be reliable. Error is understandable, but with yet no proof of any of the Bible, we are still 100% in the dark on the existence of God.

Even if we could accept that Jesus did exist on this earth, which is not likely possible this long after his alleged death, that still would not prove anything of a supernatural basis that is attached to the stories written about Jesus.
