Because it allows me to thoroughly dismantle bad arguments such as yours.
It was so obvious, I'm not sure how you got to the point where you denied that the ancients had evidence, testimony, reason, and logic.
Typical Arty. Doubles down when he's shown to be wrong.
1) It wasn't JUST to ancient Israel, else Paul would not have reinforced it in his letters to other nations.
2) Why do you assume modern forensics are a necessary part of determining guilt?
3) Quit appealing to novelty.
I expect you to consider evidence contrary to yours.
What makes you think I haven't already, and determined that God's ways are better than anything I could ever come up with?
The fact that you can't tell the difference between "guaranteeing something will happen in a system" and "acknowledging what will indeed happen regardless of how good the system is" shows your lack of discernment.
No one said there was.
Duh. No one said otherwise.
Thinking you can improve on a system God designed is not only arrogant, but evil.
That makes you evil, Arty.
When the alternative is that people have to wait years or even decades to see justice, I would much prefer a system that has some innocents accidentally put to death, and some guilty accidentally set free, but where the majority of cases are rightly judged. How you think that's a step backwards from this
is beyond me.
On the contrary, yes I am.
And you don't.
Why do you disagree with God when He says that "two or three witnesses" is enough to establish a matter?
No, you haven't, or else I wouldn't be asking.
And many more would be released after a quick punishment, or released due to lack of evidence, and people would be able to move on with their lives.
Under the current system, and the one you advocate, more and more people will be locked up because "they might not be guilty."
You, Arthur, are incapable of judging rightly, which is why you can't accept God's standard of righteousness.
And yet, no one is held accountable for the mistakes made, not to any noticeable extent. Hmmm. Oh wait, they can't be, because they're all completely anonymous, or legally exempt from any real repercussions of their decisions.
Under my preferred system, judges would be held accountable for their bad judgements, oversights, malpractices, and general wickedness.
