Today among those 'in Christ' the Old Testament has no value. And few thing in the New Testament are consequential.
:first: OK, you got Aimiel's POTD!!! :thumb:The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:9-10)
By what standard does God judge our ways?
And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. (2 Timothy 2:5)
You reject God's word, so you don't even know the rules. You are just making up your own rules.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes... (Proverbs 3:5-7)
You foolishly lean on your own understanding and reject God's word, which is our guide, our standard. You say the Old Testament has no value for those in Christ, but Paul said just the opposite.
Evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:13-17)
The only scriptures available to Timothy when he was a child is the Old Testament, which Paul said is able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. What scriptures do you think Paul used in his preaching?
Because you reject God's word, you say just the opposite of Paul. This indicates to me that the spirit of truth to whom you claim to be listening is a lying spirit who is deceiving you. You need to cast out that spirit and start being guided by God's word. Quit leaning to your own understanding. Quit rejecting God's word and saying just the opposite of scripture. You're not fooling anyone but yourself.
