The Old Testament is still very valid!

There is no shortage of violence, misogyny, and intolerance in the Old Testament of the Bible. With passages that tell us to kill homosexuals (Leviticus 20:13), kill witches (Exodus 20:10), kill non-believers (Deuteronomy 13:13-18), justify slavery (Leviticus 22:11), killing women who are not virgin on their wedding night (Deuteronomy 22:20-21), kill people for working on the Sabbath (Exodus 31:12-15), and countless more commandments by god for his followers to act with extreme cruelty and carry out bloodshed that would make a psychopathic killer seem like an angel, the bible is by far the most disgusting book ever written.

In response to this many Christians use their favourite argument, which is, “that doesn’t count, it’s just the Old Testament!”. Let us look at quickly just how stupid this most widely used Christian argument is:

First of all, nowhere in the New Testament are we told that the Old Testament laws do not apply. In fact, if anything, the opposite of that is true, as Jesus says in Matthew 5:17-19Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Clearly most Christians don’t even read the bible; they just spew out whatever someone else told them. More importantly, Christians claim that both the Old and New Testament were inspired by of god! It’s the same freaking god! Use your brain for a second? In the New Testament, in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 it says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Also important to note is that Christians view Jesus as God, which means Jesus was the God of the Old Testament, who commanded all those violent, sexist, and disgusting laws. And we also read in the bible that God does not change (Malachi 3:6 and James 1:17). But interestingly enough, Jesus in the New Testament is still very violent; as he promises to kill and defeat all non-believers on the day he supposedly comes back to earth.

Now this is where it gets really interesting, Christians not only quote and use the Old Testament on a regular basis, but also relate the stories and supposed prophecies of the Old Testament to Jesus, and see him as a messiah that came to fulfil the Old Testament prophecies. I love how some will even go as far as saying, oh those laws are for the Jews only? Huh?? So are you saying that religious Jews, who only believe in the Old Testament of the Bible, and not the new, are the most violent people on earth? No, because all religions are violent, evil, outdated, and destroy your mind.

It is so hypocritical and stupid for Christians to conveniently say that the Old Testament does not apply. Interesting enough, they pick the scriptures they like in the Old Testament and use it all the time, but then ignore the repulsive ones, and there are MANY! For instance, Christians will take the Ten commandments from the Old Testament book of Exodus and want to have it written all over public areas, but then they simply ignore the fact that Exodus also says “kill those who work on the Sabbath” (Exodus 31:12-15). Hypocrisy and stupidity at its finest! Religion damages your mind. Your brain is so powerful, stop allowing religion to hold it back from achieving its full potential!

How Christians hide behind the “Oh that’s just the Old Testament” argument is mind-boggling!

Submission from one of my readers:

Hebrews 1:12
And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

Hebrews 13:7-9
Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

Malachi 3:6
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

I Samuel 15:29
He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind.

Psalm 102:27
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Malachi 3:6
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Matthew 5:17
Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them.

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words never pass away.

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. –Roswatheists
