Old Testament

Many of us practicing religion are still following the old testament specifically the ten (10) commandments.

Heb 8:7 For if that first [covenant] had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new [covenant], he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old [is] ready to vanish away.

This is the law received by Moses at Mount Sina given by the angels for Israel but they did not obey it.

Acts 7:53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept [it].

Acts 7:30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.

Acts 7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and [with] our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

Violation of the said laws & statutes will mean death by stoning applicable even to animals.

Exod 21:28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox [shall be] quit.

Exod 21:29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

This is how they enforce the law to show that disobedience will mean death by stoning for all Israel to fear.

Deut 21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

But here comes the law of Christ from God the father more compassionate, more caring & loving than the first. Teaching us even to love our enemies.

Matt 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

Matt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John the baptist.

Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets [were] until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

While the law of Moses which is the old testament was administered only by the Angels, the new testament was ministered by Christ himself and after death on the cross then to the Apostles by the holy spirit.

2 Cor 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

1 Pet 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

For existing religions therefore to insist on the old, can they stoned the offender to death?

Prov 20:22 Say not thou, I will recompense evil; [but] wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Gone are the days of breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. So with the old testament including the practice of sabbath and 10% tithes meant only for Israel not for us Gentiles.

2 Cor 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
