I'm currently an agnostic and looking for answers to some questions that I've always had about Christianity. I asked this on another post and preacherman was not able to answer. Can anyone here explain this to me please. Thanks

This is an exact copy of the post. I look like a smart azz, asking the question because he said I twisted his comment the first time I asked it for some reason.

You didn't say there is no wiggle room in the 9 commandments! My question wasn't about which commandments or laws got nailed to the cross based on the opinion of each Christian. This is what I want to know from you and you should be very qualified to answer. Why would your God kill a man for picking up a stick? It has nothing to do with being a Jew, Gentile, Chinese monk or anybody else! If you were alive in the days of the Torah, you would be stoned to death for picking up a stick! Not because God killed you but because a man killed you after reading words written by man, inspired or not.

Now in modern Christianity supposedly inspired by the very same God that had countless people stoned to death for picking up sticks, you can preach on Sunday while getting paid by the church. I can walk in this same church and kidnap you at gun point, rape you, torture you, kill you and then do the same thing to your entire family. Then after all that I can repent and accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour truly sorry and spend eternity in heaven! I bet the innocent people that picked up a stick were sorry after the first dozen stones smashed their face! So I ask you, did your God change that much or did the men that wrote the Bible change that much?

The men that wrote the O.T. made their god look like a homocidal psycopath. The ones that wrote the N.T. didn't do much better!

a) The god of the torah (OT) is the same as the one in the NT.

b) The 10 com. leave no wiggle room - no. They stand forever for God, for he says: heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word shall not pass away.

c) the difference between the two is:

1) God, in the OT was the God of the Jews, having chosen the Jews.
The jews had to follow is laws - 613 laws, incl. the 10 comm.

2) in the NT God bore a son to a virgin name Mary, and they called him Jesus. With Jesus, God of the OT calls all people to believe the NT ( the Gospel ) and
follow it by: believing Jesus is the son of god, believing the whole Gospel ( everything JESUS taught ), repenting (setting aside all that's bad and embracing that which
is good to God), baptizing to cleanse away sin, never to sin again (sin being conscious transgression against God's laws). All who do this receive a better life on
earth and everlasting life in heaven. All who do not believe, all hypocrites, game-players, lukewarm/half-way believers, shall perish ( be spewed out ).

This is all there is to it.

Read the first book for your self and then all the other books of the NT - 3 months reading.

start tonight: The Book of Matthew.

I have read the Bible years ago but I started in Genesis. Your recommendation of only reading the NT sounds like starting in the middle of a story. I have already read the OT and make it known that it doesn't seem to have come from a God. I have the desire to revisit religion because I want to know how strong knowledgeable Christians explain questions like my original. This must be understood before I could give any further consideration to any religion. I was already aware of everything you pointed out but you still didn't answer the question. I know they are supposed to be the same God.

Can someone PLEASE explain this for me. There are lots of Christians on here. There is a lot of personal attacks and arguments but can a real Christian take 30 seconds to explain this?

I can't believe it is this hard to get answers to questions like this. People like me need these questions answered to have any chance at faith. After reading all the posts from good Christians with strong faith that claim to have a relationship with God, I thought this was the perfect place to get answers like this.

a) Terribly sorry, but here we go! If you were aware of everything I pointed, then why did you
ask the question? Tome, you sound like a fool.

b) Because you have read the OT you must automatically go read the NT, without any
encouragement whatsoever, were you as interested as you attempt to make us believe. But,
having read the OT, you don't believe it to come from a God? Then who could possibly
convince you? You your self must read and believe. No doubt, you are a troll.

I normally answer fools only once, not twice!

Fools must read, and not post stupid questions on boards. The people you talk to are christians
of strong faith, to you; while you do not even know them. Most are jokers, like your self. All
you'd do is read the NT. If you still don't believe. forget it, for you do not have the calling.

I don't consider myself a fool and I doubt anyone would. I would never call you a fool or anyone else on here just because the have a different belief than me. I was completely honest and made no attempt to hide the fact that I'm agnostic. If you read my question, by no stretch of the imagination did you answer it. I don't fault you however because I think the kind of questions I have can't be answered it would seem. I was also sincere with my question because I really do want to know how people look past all the problems with the Bible and every religion. Is the key for most people to get the faith as a child so they can look past all the problems?

I think it is rather foolish for you to say "I must read and believe". I don't know anybody who just read and believed. If it was that easy , why is everyone here? If someone did a study were a large number of people who where never exposed to religion as a child, were told to study the religions of the world and pick one, what would happen? You think after studying Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and just the major religions of the world people would pick up the Bible and just "read and believe"? If that were true you wouldn't have people holding the religion they were born into and all the Muslims would have converted instead of flying planes into the world trade center.

So I'm sorry I wasted your time and of course I don't expect you to answer this fool a third time. I really did want to ask several serious questions on here but I can see that's a huge waste of time. I don't have the desire or the time to troll.

Again I think you have made it crystal clear, you think I'm a fool. I wouldn't call you a fool but I bet there are plenty of people on here that would. I can tell by reading their words if they have strong faith. If they say they have a personal relationship with God, you think they are mistaken. I personally think each of you that claim to have a personal relationship with your respective God's, really do in your own mind. I just wanted to understand it, that's all.

You're really stuck on this "must read and not post stupid questions on boards." Again why are any of us here? Do you think you could raise your children completely free of all religion and hand them a Bible as an adult. Do you think they wouldn't say where did all this contradictory nonsense come from as an adult? Would they pick Islam because when they "just read the Bible" it appeared Jesus was just a prophet and not God? Again don't waste anymore of your time on this fool. Have a good day and I wish you the best in your chosen faith, what ever that is exactly.

Its the same God. We are under Grace now, so we are not punished right away for the sins like in the OT. The things people were stoned for in the OT, they will have to answer for at judgement day under the New Covenant of Grace we are under right now.

Like it or not, thats how God dealt with people who broke his commands back then and you can clearly see God hates sin. This is why he sent his Son to die on the cross for our sins so we can can eternal life once we repent of our sins and turn the right path and follow Jesus.

As for reading the bible, read the 1rst 5 books so you atleast know what the Law is and what he required of the Israelites and the NT will make more sense when you read it.

In the End its the same God that just deals with mankind differently now under the New Covenant.

Well if you havent read ALL of either side of the bible, how can you try to understand it? By other people's words? Besides what makes you agnostic if you dont mind me asking?

My bad didnt see this. Ok so you've read the story right? In full? So you know that

-The Hebrews were slaves in Egypt

-Moses, who was a Hebrew but became adopted by Pharoah's daughter when he was found in the river, came to the Hebrew elders and said that some God had revealed Himself to him (Moses) in a burning bush saying that He was the God of their fathers Abraham Isaac and Jacob. This God said that He would bring them into a very good land that would be theirs.

- This God brought 10 plagues on the Egyptians (that all the Hebrews saw) including killing the firstborn of the Egyptians (and none of the Hebrews firstborn) these Hebrews saw the word of Moses (that he claimed this God said) they were released from Egypt. After being released the Pharaoh of Egypt changes his mind and sends the army after the Hebrews. The Hebrews then come to a sea at which the sea is parted so that they can pass on the dry land. When they pass, the Egyptian army also tries to, but the sea goes back to place on them.

- This same God rains down bread for them to gather and eat EACH day. They did this for 6 days and on the 6th told to gather twice as much so that on the 7th they could stay in and consecrate that day to the God that did all these things for them.

-After the Hebrew people made a pact with this God to follow His laws and commands, they (after Moses went up a mountain to talk to this God) begin to worship an idol (against the commands of this God) and are slayed because of it.

Do you not think that you would listen to this God if someone came and told you that He would do something and that something ended up happening? In miraculous ways?

Yes I did read the KJV Bible cover to cover although not recently. I won't pretend like I understood even half of it but I did read it. I don't mind answering anything. I'm agnostic because I know there could be a God and like most people I want there to be a God. I think the hard core gnostic atheist that claims to know there is no God is far more foolish than the believer of any religion. Even as science has slowly removed the need for a God, it will always remain a possibility.

Yes, of course I would! It just seems like all the miracles, interaction with God and witnesses to such are just words penned by man. There is no sign of any of it after the Bible was written. Some Christians claim to be able to talk to God. Can you talk to God? I just find it hard to believe God micromanages preacherman to the point of telling him who to respond to on this forum like he claims.

Then this same God ignores real problems and cries for help. There were thousands of Christians praying in the world trade center along with the entire country watching on TV and the towers still fell killing every one of them. Was he busy telling preacherman who to answer on Topix? If you can talk to God, how do you know it's not just in your mind? You don't have to answer this and I'm not trying to offend anyone, I just would like to understand. The more I listen to myself, I don't blame anybody for not wanting to answer me. I think I'm a lost cause as far as religion goes!

James: God HAD to be very strict with His people, the Israelites because the Messiah had not yet come. The whole world's redemption counted on this!
Prior to the the establishment of the Jewish nation, people served many gods, all of them false, of course. God tried to work through many people to reach this lost world such as Enoch and others, but they would not turn from their sins! So God decided to build a nation of His own to bring about the redemption of the world through the Messiah that was to come. He gave them many promises which were prophesied in the Hebrew writings of old, the Old Testament. He even had many problems with His own people of course and gave them outlines-His law, but they continued to rebel frequently, wanting to live their own way rather than God's ways.

If God hadn't been so strict with them, the promise of the could not have been fulfilled and all would be lost!

James: Now that the Messiah HAS come, the law of the Lord is mercy! When Jesus Christ hung on that cross, He took the punishment for the sins of the whole world. If you stood before a Judge who was about to condemn you, but instead of condemning you, he looked over at the bailiff and nodded to him, and the bailiff disappeared for a moment and then returned with a man who was bloodied and bruised from being beaten and whipped; you'd be horrified at the sight of this man, thinking that you were about to suffer the same judgement; but you would be greatly relieved and surprised when this Judge said to you, you may go free because this man has willingly paid for your wrongs and offences

The payment for your sins have been completely paid for by Jesus Christ Who suffered for you so that you could go free! When Jesus Christ wiilingly gave His life for our sins, the Father forgave the sins of the whole world!!! Now all that's left, is for "whomsoever will" to come to God thru belief in Christ acknowledging His work on the cross that He did for us!

Heaven cannot be earned, it is a "gift". Put your faith in the One Who earned Heaven FOR you. Your faith in Christ will justify you before God.

Who else would they be penned by? Besides isnt the thing that should matter be whether the writers wrote it according to a true event?

I cannot talk to God Almighty as someone like Moses did. I doubt they can either but hey Im not with them so lol...

Maybe the christians arent praying to the God that did all those things in front of the Hebrew peoples eyes?

<quoted text>Yes I did read the KJV Bible cover to cover although not recently. I won't pretend like I understood even half of it but I did read it. I don't mind answering anything. I'm agnostic because I know there could be a God and like most people I want there to be a God. I think the hard core gnostic atheist that claims to know there is no God is far more foolish than the believer of any religion. Even as science has slowly removed the need for a God, it will always remain a possibility.
I see. Well you understand why they were judged more harshly at that time?

How do you see that science has "removed the need for God"?
