The Old Covenant was in effect during the time before Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection when the Jews were living under the Mosaic Law, or, the Old Law, and is associated with the Old Testament and the leadership of Moses.

The New Covenant went into effect after Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection that fulfilled the requirements of the Old Covenant and Old Law, and is associated with the New Testament and the leadership of Jesus.

The Old Covenant vs. The New Covenant

Old Covenant - A Covenant of the Letter (2 Corinthians 3:6)
New Covenant - A Covenant of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:6-8)

Old Covenant - A Covenant Written with Ink (2 Corinthians 3:3)
New Covenant - A Covenant Written with the Spirit of the Living God (2 Corinthians 3:3)
Old Covenant - A Covenant Written on Stone (2 Corinthians 3:3-7)
New Covenant - A Covenant Written on the Heart of Man (2 Corinthians 3:3; Jeremiah 31:33; Ezekiel 11:19-20; 36:26)
Old Covenant - A Covenant which came with Glory (2 Corinthians 3:7; Exodus 34:29-35)
New Covenant - A Covenant which came with the Greatest Glory (2 Corinthians 3:8-11)
Old Covenant - A Covenant whose Glory was Passing/Fading (2 Corinthians 3:7)
New Covenant - A Covenant whose Glory Continues to Shine (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Old Covenant - A Veiled or Covered Glory (2 Corinthians 3:12-16)
New Covenant - An Unveiled, Ever-Increasing Glory (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Old Covenant - A Covenant Destined to be Done Away (2 Corinthians 3:11; Hebrews 7:12, 8:13, 10:9)

While some perverted the doctrine of the resurrection (2 Timothy 2:18), still others
rejected the fact altogether (Matthew 22:23; Acts 23:6-8; 1 Corinthians 15:22).
II. The resurrection of Jesus Christ occurred in fulfillment of prophecy.
A It was foretold in the Old Testament.
Psalms 16:10 (Acts 2:27; 13:35-37); Psalms 22:21 (John 20:17)
Isaiah 53:10; Jonah 1:17; 2:10 with Matthew 12:40
B. It was predicted by Jesus Himself.
Matthew 16:21 (Mark 8:31) "From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his
disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things ... and be killed,
and be raised again the third day."
Matthew 12:38-40; 17:9, 22, 23; 20:18, 19; 26:32; 27:63
Mark 9:10, 31; 10:32-34,14:28, 58; Luke 9:22; John 2:19, 21, 22
John 10:17, 18 "... I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from
me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again..."
Jesus was a wanna-be messiah.
When the prophet Elijah did not show up at the Passover Feast he then took matters on his own.

Jeremiah 31:31-34 [31] Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:[32] Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:[33] But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.[34] And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

See All... Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach NO MORE every man, his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin NO MORE!!!!!!!!

I will go on a limb and say it has to do with the spirit of a person. Example, some days I make as many as 18 stops on my route. Most of my accounts now know me and I'm in/out as quick as possible. Very professional but don't have time for any chit chat. As of now there isn't time to talk about issues of faith and few know what I think and I don't know much about them. I have one store I go to 2 times a week and the receiving manager went off on me one day. It could be many things but if I had to guess it would be the Christ in me she has a problem with. Again just a guess but this lady doesn't know me from Adam. And I know nothing of her and what she believes? Has any other Christian here had anything like this happen?
Good afternoon Chris. I can relate to what you are saying here, I have experienced throughout my life here and there that there are going to be people who will not like you for no apparent reason whatsoever, before I came into the knowledge of God's truth this used to trouble me somewhat, but I believe now as being an elect in God, and you probably can relate as well is that the spirit within us even before salvation, does not cleave with the natural spirit that resides in most people in the world, I believe that God has simply put that within those of us who are called unto grace IN Christ Jesus.

Like myself, I'm sure you have found those who have set themselves against you for no apparent reason of which they wouldn't be able to explain themselves even if their lives were to depend on it ( hypothetically speaking ) that is why we must be careful in how we deal with other people, because if when we do somethings wrong or rub people the wrong way ( and it happens because we are human ) notice that we will be punished or persecuted for it far more than anyone else for doing the same thing, but our God is graceful so also notice that more often than the reverse he allows us to find favor in the eyes of others and very often we also have people who don't know us personally to do us unexpected services that helps us ( having favor with God ) so by no circumstances is it all bad as some see the God in us, and others are troubled by it and set themselves at variance against us, but God has garnered the victory IN his name for us already. Peace.

I've been a radio guy for a very long time. Many years ago, now close to 20, I was listening to a local talk show out of Knoxville. One day this atheist calls in and says the reason he wanted no part of the Christian faith was that a man like Hitler could be in heaven by our teaching. This wasn't a show on relgion btw, just pop culture. The host said while he doubted it that yes, if he really repented that could be. At the time I wasn't Christian, really didn't care. But now I do. I pray everyone repents.
I would repent if I had something to repent about.
The only thing that I really feel sorry about is selling my 1957 Chevy Nomad which was equipped with electric windows, power seats, power steering, power brakes and light green tinted glass.
WTF was I thinking?

But it isn't a contradiction. God loved the world which is why he sent his only son. He wants to see all come to the knowledge of the truth and be saved.
Yet given the mayhem and murder in Revelation, it would seem that God knew that all won't be coming to the knowledge of the truth and be saved.

I've heard that he hates sin but Job tells us how he allowed Satan into heaven.

The Bible never states God loves everybody no matter who and no matter what they do.
You're probably right about this but that seems to be the message I hear from so many believers.
Skombolis wrote:
If you say you love your country and don't want to see it devolve into an immoral mess and do something to try to save it, does that mean you love every single person in it no matter what they do?
No, I certainly don't love everyone in the UK. As for slipping into an immoral mess? These days we live in a multi-cultural society. It's far from being perfect and sometimes it works/sometimes it doesn't.

However, we don't allow people to rely on their religious belief as a way to justify discrimination. It's as simple as that. I guess if equality of religion, women, gays, race, etc is immoral then I welcome it.
Skombolis wrote:
People sometimes tribute things to God incorrectly. God teaches us to love everyone because we are not capable of seeing what is in the heart of a person. That is why God will be the ultimate judge.

OK, I think I get it. You believe your god wants you to love everyone even though he's already said he'll be coming down from the skies to massacre the non-believers in their billions?

It is funny listening to bigots like Ians make posts about how with faith reasoning you get garbage. Yet here is a guy that employs the type of "logic" that says it makes sense to judge the morality of hundreds of millions of people whom he has never met.
It is the same mind-set that someone can tell themselves they wouldn't want to be a Christian because Hitler was. Hitler also loved animals and was a house painter. Would they be cruel to animals and hate people that paint because of Hitler?
Yet these are the people also the loudest when trying to spread their prejudiced views thinking they are presenting logical arguments
Although I do think it is good to pray for everyone

Yet you say you wrote thousands of scripts for addictive medications.
You mangled that, too, shit-fer-brains. Here's a little advice: stop saying "you say" or "you said." Produce the words. What I said is that "I have written thousands of narcotic prescriptions." And I have taken great pains to make the distinction between addiction and dependence. I wouldn't become addicted to narcotics even if I took enough to develop dependence and begin vomiting on withdrawal. Hell, I get nauseated on initiation. One Peroccet makes me sick.

I refuse to discuss these matters in your language of ignorance. You'll learn to stop spreading misinformation, or I will continue correcting you.

No, you drug addled idiot. I never used the word "fault." I didn't blame you for being weak, as in chastising you. I called your proclivity for addiction a weakness, and explained that you and your weakness were the reason for your drug problem, not the drugs themselves.

You haven't got a prayer in this war, Dimwit. You're firing blanks at a boogie man of your own imagining from a position of vulnerability. You're a felon, an addict, and have goo for brains. You lose.

Why? Because that's what you do.

More stupidity.

Of course I did. I just posted about treating moderate to severe pain in addicts using narcotics. It's standard of care, you useless Dimwit.

If you had come to me after being severely burned I surely would have prescribed narcotics to you, you would have been grateful, and I would have been practicing compassionate and ethical medicine. It would be up to you to make the best of the situation. If you had had a history of addiction, it would be up to you to admit it to me. If necessary, you would be referred to an addiction specialist when the need for narcotics had ended.

You should just STFU.

<quoted text> Being an atheist and therefore not able to understand the things of God via your unbelief ( although it is odd that you make references to scriptures when you don't believe ) it's not surprising to see this lack of rightly dividing the scriptures on your part, there are no quotations from Paul in those verses where he implied that the resurrection of the church will happen in his lifetime, you do err not knowing the scriptures.
When reference is made to the Lord's returning being only a short time away then as even now..........it is referenced only from GOD'S time and not our OWN, as the Bible says that a thousand years is as one day with the Lord and one day as a thousand years, in all things get an understanding.
2 Peter 3:9-11
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2 Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day
This is true.

Atheist are DECEIVERS--just like that ole SERPENT. They are LIARS and the fathering of a lIE. They use the SCRIPTURES just like Satan does---to TWIST the meaning.

There is not ONE WORD, that comes out of an Atheist mouth, that "I" believe--- not one word!!

If you read the bible as misguided as you read my post, its no wonder that you are a total mess. YOUR interpretation of the scripture is Manmade. You don't know the difference between the 2 covenants. When that poster stated that the bible is full of contradictions, YOU should have explained WHY.But you CANT, because you don't even know yourself. You are like a blind man leading a blind man. You still haven't answered my previous questions either because you DONT know the answers. Learn the answers before you continue to post false doctrine steve
So you claiming you follow all the teaching of Christ wasnt a lie even though you claimed later that they dont apply to you? Obviously the reason you first lied is why you want to backpeddal now on your "manmade" comment but no way that covers your other two stories.

I was at a mall yesterday and noticed an unusually hilarious T-shirt.
It was an illustration of a bearded hippie embracing a reddish-hued person who had 2 horns and a long arrow-pointed tail.
As they were embracing the hippie taped a sign on the back of the red guy which read "KICK ME".

Well, there was only one in my size. Now it's mine and I'm gonna wear it to a church picnic down the street.
Wahooooo!
