“Last week I went to a David Smalley vs. Matt Slick debate and asked the same question that led Slick’s own daughter to become an atheist. Here is his response.
The question: If God was absolutely moral, because morality was absolute, and if the nature of “right” and “wrong” surpassed space, time, and existence, and if it was as much a fundamental property of reality as math, then why were some things a sin in the Old Testament but not a sin in the New Testament?”
We can talk about the virtues of free will, but seriously…from the religious perspective, where adherence to the doctrine is best [and the only way to be spared]…how does it become a good thing to loosen the rules, and theoretically allow more people to go to hell?
This seems entirely counterproductive.
We live in a day…where certain Christian groups like to organize…and force a certain will upon the rest of us…force adherence and submission, to what is recognized by many as Christian agendas…things consistent with what you find in the bible…
…Wouldn’t it have been so much better, to just stick to the old ways?…and leave little room for the masses to go astray?
It’s fair to point out…that these certain Christian groups are violating the spirit of the new covenant, by trying to force others to [allegedly] act Christian…especially when there is supposed to be a free will in all of this…
…But the whole situation is ludicrous, in my opinion.
…It’s just another one of those situations, where a religion has shot itself in the foot…for no apparent reason.
Aside from making Christianity a bit more socially digestible than Judaism…and bringing in a much wider range of people…the new covenant seems like a pretty bad idea…if your intent is to make people “walk the path to salvation”, anyway.

“Mr. Gerard Straub was formerly a producer for Pat Robertson’s 700 Club, but soon became disillusioned with that brand of theocracy. In fact, he was so incensed with Robertson’s demagoguery that he wrote a book called “Salvation for Sale,” which exposes Robertson for the fraud that he is. This speech was delivered at a meeting of Americans United in 1995.”

“Radio host and Donald Trump supporter Alex Jones doesn’t need to tell Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to go to Hell. He believes they already reside there.
On Monday, Jones, host of his eponymous show on the Genesis Communications Network, said the two were literally the devil, Media Matters reports…”
Who is left on this planet, that actually takes Alex Jones [or his cohorts] seriously?
