It is not picking and choosing at all. The Bible itself shows that once Jesus died on the Cross that we were no longer under Mosaic Law, which is the Old Testamnet.<quoted text>
Oh wow, so you are picking and choosing. I don't need to address the rest of your post because that is just too sad. You don't like something, so you ignore it, but expect everyone else to believe the parts you like without question. Delusions know no bounds.
Knowing this that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law, for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified."
"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree"
It looks pretty silly for you to try to be condescending when it is you that has no idea what he is talking about.
