I believe I've already answered all those points. You're repeating yourself.And they changed, so then moral laws are not all unchanging. Some change, like the number of wives a man can have.
Periscopes were not invented when the Bible was written, so they are unbiblical.
Some laws have, or is it morally wrong to wear a cotton-polyester shirt today?
And where in the Bible is the list of which laws are moral laws and which are not moral laws? Or is this merely a human interpretation added after Bible was written?
Thanks for conceding the argument.Thanks for your lengthy straw man.
You just can't help but indulge in one logical fallacy after another. This isn't about me, and your transparent attempt to engage in Ad Hominem is pathetic.BTW, Shnarkle, how do you "self identify" -- theist, or atheist?
It's one of the reasons why Ad Hominem is a logical fallacy. It makes no difference who I am. What matters is the content of my argument, which you insist on ignoring thus conceding the argument. You're left to obsess over the identity of those who you can't debate.Knock yourself out dude.
As closely related as you may think identification is to identity identification is not identity. Consult a dictionary if you don't believe me.
How exactly do you think referencing what people who disagree with Jesus think is going to persuade someone that one of Jesus's main themes is actually the opposite of his teaching?Sure it does. As James says, break one law, and you're guilty of breaking the entire law because the standard for salvation through law keeping is keeping the law to perfection (Jas 2:10; cf Mt 5:48).
You've already failed at that. The law has failed to save you, but then again, the law was never designed to save anyone, but it was designed to reveal to one his sinfulness (Rom 3:20).
Salvation has always been by grace, through faith (Eph 2:8ff; cf Gen 15:6). The purpose of the law is not to save one who keeps the law; the purpose of the law is to reveal to you that you are sinful by your inability to perfectly keep the law (Rom 3:20). No one has kept the law perfectly, but Christ who is the atonement for sin, the forgiveness of sin. God gave the Old Testament Jews the animal, sacrificial system as a way of offering atonement their sins, but as the writer tells us, the blood of bulls and goats are not sufficient for the forgiveness of sins, but only Christ is (Heb 10:4ff).
Following the law is good, everyone is obligated to keep the moral law, but keeping the law saves no one, because the standard for salvation through law keeping is perfection (Jas 2:10; cf Mt 5:48). One is saved by grace, through faith, not by works (Rom 3:20; Eph 2:8ff)
So, if, as an atheist you think you can be saved by keeping the law, you have been deceived by whoever it is that taught you salvation comes through keeping the law. You've already broken the law, and you are presently under God's condemnation for not putting your trust in Christ for the forgiveness of your sins (Jn 3:18ff).
Jesus is God; the scripture is the word of God; therefore, God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit and all the apostles agree that salvation has always been by grace, through faith, not by works Eph 2:8ff. See what Genesis 15:6 says about the justification of Abraham.How exactly do you think referencing what people who disagree with Jesus think is going to persuade someone that one of Jesus's main themes is actually the opposite of his teaching?
Again, quoting someone who explicitly disagrees with Jesus. I hope you all the world in finding someone who will think that is persuasiveJesus is God; the scripture is the word of God; therefore, God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit and all the apostles agree that salvation has always been by grace, through faith, not by works Eph 2:8ff. See what Genesis 15:6 says about the justification of Abraham.
Works have never saved anyone, and they are not going to save you.
It's more like,So the judge had a truly marvellous demonstration of this proposition which this thread is too narrow to contain.
Actually Jesus taught salvation through righteousness. The righteous do not commit sin.Matthew 5:48 does no such thing. Salvation by works is a theme of Jesus's in the synoptics. Again, Jesus's position of works and following the Law is precisely how Peter defended following the Law against Paul in their dispute.
Peter and Jesus say follow the Law, Paul says you don't have to.
Matthew 5:18And yet He did. You might try backing up your comment that "Peter and Jesus say follow the Law." Show us all where they said that.
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
What's the point of it not passing away if there's no need to keep it?First of all those words are not instructions to follow the law, but were you thinking Peter and Jesus were doing a duet there and that Matthew just forgot to give Peter attribution?
