"Better"? Both are God's direct revelation to mankind, so it would be rather presumptuous of us to judge their relative value, except to note that Jews would obviously PREFER the Old Testament, since they don't believe the New, whereas Christians would logically PREFER the New Testament, since we believe it is the culmination of God's progressive revelation, but we dare not NEGLECT the Old, because its revelation is foundational to that of the New. βœŸΩ†βœ‘

@MyOpinionRules - And furthermore, your opinion can't possibly "rule" on this question, since your opinion is not germane. Non-believers are in no position to judge the Bible.

But feel free to read it anyway. You don't believe everything you read in the newspaper or online either, but you still read it.

If you take the God stuff out, there is a lot of history in it.

New Testament. It is the basis for the beliefs of most modern day Christians

I'm not a Christian, but I do think the New Testament offers a lot more good than the Old. I like Jesus's teachings: love your neighbor, be charitable, do not judge others, etc.

I do not mean to imply that all Christians are bad, but I do wish more Christians were like their Christ.

The question is which is better.
They both speak to the nature of God. One His law and justice the Other His mercy. They're both of equal value.

Old Testament, it shows the true nature of this god so many are willing to worship. The New Testament is sugar coated propaganda.

Interesting concept. Never heard it phrased like that before. Can you explain that any more for me?

The god of the Old Testament in the bible is a vile, horrible, vengeful, angry tyrant that is unchanging and unworthy of worship. It is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Just because some prophet comes along and contradicts the Old Testament does not mean that everything before is changed.
If a god created everything, then he created good and evil. god cannot be "all-good" and be the architect of evil. Assuming a god created everything from nothing, god not only allows evil to exist, but created a universe that allows for the existence of horrendous evil. god cannot be omnibenevolent.

Jesus didn't contradict the old testament. He can't to us to fulfill the promise God made in the old testament.
Good created mankind with free will, the ability to choose right and wrong, good or evil, to follow God or to deny Him. The day will come when God returns abd we will have our peace. Until then, the ones who live by this works shall destroy it

I don't care. I don't believe those stories, there are far too many contradictions and unscientific tales to take any of it seriously.

08/16/16 1:36 pm

Ok. Then can you scientifically prove love, or hate?

What contradictions are you speaking of? Specifically?

biker4life Arizona
08/16/16 2:00 pm

I can't prove love or hate, but that's ok, it's perfectly acceptable in science to say "I don't know (yet)", unlike with religion that deals with Bronze Age absolutes that leaves no room for change because of the god did it answer.
All you have to do is actually read the bible to find contradictions. I understand that most Christians only open their bibles on Sunday and have never really read any part of it outside of church services.

Well, my Bible is open daily. How else to fully know and accept the gifts you are given.
Good made a perfect existence for man. He also gave man free will, which is where the sin and evil comes in. All peace will come again when the end is here.
You are free to believe or not believe. That's your choice. You are given that.
