I accept your apology, and we can move on
I dont think the church in its current form can really turn its back on the OT - as its ID is too bound up in Replacement Theology. Its a political thing for them.
I agree with that assessment. The OT is like a big bone stuck permanently in the throat of Christianity. Neither can it be swallowed nor it can be thrown out.
Now that there is no threat of getting boiled in oil or beheaded or burned up alive, Christianity badly needs a strong reformer, who can demand for the removal of the OT.
