Here’s a thought.
Maybe it’s due to my lack of knowledge in Christianity so help me out
There are 613 commandments in the bible
- not just the ten central ones.
However, Christians believe that 603 of the commandments (minus the ten) are irrelevant since “Jesus died to save us from our sins.”
So Christians don’t keep kosher for example- a clear commandment in the bible
They don’t keep the agricultural commandments of letting the land rest every seven years
They completely ignore the bible’s commandments allowing slavery (Jews ignore this as well)
Not to mention that they ignore all Sabbath commandments - which are written to be punishable by death.
Because supposedly they’re irrelevant now after Jesus..
So what I don’t get is- why are they picking on homosexuals???
As far as I know- the actual place where it says homosexuality is wrong is the Old Testament
So why this pick and choose?
Same goes for abortions…. Which in this case I really don’t get, since the bible clearly states that a fetus is not human.
“And if men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart, and yet no harm follow, he shall be surely fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if any harm follow, then thou shalt give life for life.”
Or in other words- if a pregnant woman is attacked and the fetus dies- the assailant is to be fined. But if the woman is killed- the assailant gets the death sentence.
The bible states clearly that a fetus is not a human being.
So what’s the deal?
