Atheists don't understand why Christ came.

A recent exchange on The Other McCain is worth repeating.

"If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals,then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity."

Deuteronomy 25:11-12.

Yeah, real beautiful book you've got there, pal.

My name's not "pal", but you can call me ma'am.

Furthermore, every time you or one of your equally foolish ilk quotes any part of the Mosaic or Levitical law to make a point, you only expose your ignorance.

For openers, you are not able to understand what is written in the Bible, so stop trying to use it to support your false interpretation. You only embarrass yourself when you do. And since you love Scripture so much, this here explains why: http://biblehub.com/1_corinthi...

Now, because I'm nice, I'm going to explain this to you just once.

When Jesus was here the first time, He fulfilled the Law.

And, there are three elements to the Mosaic (and Levitical) Laws, from which you are quoting: ritual, moral and legal. The ritual laws have been set aside. True Christians are themselves temples and priests, so those laws are no longer needed. The legal aspect, and punishment, have been given over to the nations. What remains are the moral precepts. All of this is confirmed in the New Testament, which you guys never seem to quote, I notice.

So that sexual immorality is an abomination to the Lord, and is morally repugnant, but the only punishment for it that applies in this life, are those punishments dictated by your state or nation. Dietary restrictions fall under ritual law and no longer apply. Etc.

Incidentally, God gave the Mosaic Laws specifically because they could not be followed. I understand why He did that, but you literally cannot understand. Because you don't know God.

So, now, QED. You don't know what you're talking about, and you ought to therefore shut up about things you know nothing about.
