True. Technically, we cannot prove that Hell or Heaven do not exist, just like you cannot prove that Hades and the Elysium Fields don't exist. Therefore, they are all equally likely to exist. Good for you...you've just made your afterlife just as real as the ancient Greek afterlife. To be fair, though, it's also just as real as the great hall in Valhalla and the beer volcano with the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The correct wording would have been, "there is no rational reason to accept the claim that Heaven or Hell exist."

It is not like I alone am pointing out the errors in the NT, any r3eputable scholar knows that there are tons of errors in the translations. It is literally IMPOSSIBLE for there to ever be a perfect translation of anything more complex than "see Spot run".
The Old Testament law was given to the children of Israel only.

A gentile or non-Jew was never included as part of the Old Testament.

The Jews made up the priesthood and kingdom of Israel.

(descendants of Abraham and Sarah through Isaac and through Jacob)

Now, why do we need the New Testament???

Not precisely true.

You might find an interesting similarity with the account by one of Saul's followers, Luke, who records the Jerusalem community limiting Saul's teaching of the gentiles (Noachidim) to what bears a striking resemblance to contemporaneous Pharisee interpretation of the Noachian Laws (not yet accounted as being seven).

Consider, too, the position prevalent at the time regarding ...

which casts a different light on "the Great Commission" from that probably most familiar to you.

The PROBLEM is those who reject Jesus the only Savior will burn in Hell, forever.

There is a science fiction story set several centuries into the future that involved students reading "ancient" books (from our time). One of the books included the Latin phrase "fiat lux" in an otherwise English language text. None of the human students bothered to ask, but one of the alien students was confused since the language translation program muttered something about a type of automobile and a brand name for dish washing soap.

Posting here, I can understand how that fictional teacher felt about the humans that didn't even ask...

Paul is a false prophet? Really? Why? Is Paul a false prophet because his theology of truth does not line up with your theology of lies?
You should buy a huge black magic marker and start drawing lines through the verses in the Bible that do not match up with your theology. Your Bible may be more black marker than white paper.
Paul is a false prophet because that is what the Bible says. Paul freely taught taught it was okay to ignore the Laws of the Old Testament, yet the Bible repeatedly stresses the point that ALL of the Law was to be followed FOR EVER, without changing one letter of the text.

If there is no validity in the Torah, if the Torah is a theology of lies, then the Bible is no better than the cult of $cientology. However, if there IS any validity to the Torah, then Paul should have been stoned to death by Jews and christians alike...

Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

The Gospel for sodomites and lesbians most solid argument supporting their theory that the sin in Sodom was not homosexuality is based on this verse: "'Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy."- Ezekiel 16:49. But what they so conveniently neglect to do is provide is the very next verse: "And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good."- Ezekiel 16:50. The writer uses the word abomination, Hebrew [tow'ebah], the same word in the Hebrew that is used to describe homosexuality in Leviticus 18:22! The sin in Sodom was on a grand scale, and included more than just homosexual behavior; but this does not take away from the scriptural proof that the event that occurred at Lot's home was driven by the burning homosexual appetites of the men of Sodom.
Well, gee... I suppose that the answer is that the word tow'evah is ALWAYS used to refer to things that are an abomination BECAUSE they are part of the worship of foreign Gods. The sin of Sodom was indeed on a grand scale, but it had nothing to do with homosexuality, just like heterosexual gang rape has nothing to do with teen dating.
