Billboard Response #6: The New Testament

Billboard-06

Just to correct you, one of the billboards is quoting the new testament. And the new testament didn’t void the old one. Jesus is quoted in Matthew (during his sermon on the mount) as saying:

“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.”

That is Jesus himself in the new testament telling everyone to follow the laws of the old testament, not ignore it.

So that quote right there blows that whole “New Testament voids the Old Testament” nonsense right out of the water. Jesus himself told everyone to follow the law of the prophets. How does that void anything?

Also, if the new testament did in fact void the old, why are people still using Leviticus to attack gay marriage and still follow the ten commandments? Both are in the old and according to you should be void.

If that wasn’t enough, here’s another gem for you. Directly from Jesus and in the New Testament:

“But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me.’” (Luke 19:27).

Things are not as warm and fuzzy in the new anymore than it was in the old. This is why I don’t follow any of these unproven fairy tales. The bible (new or old testament) is not the word of an almighty being… it’s just man made bullshit.
