THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.

Many “Christian” theologians and experts separate the Christian Holy Scriptures into two parts: the Old Testament Scriptures which to them are obsolete and not relevant (eg. there is no requirement to obey the Ten Commandments) today; and the New Testament Scriptures.

The Christian Bible is one complete ‘book’ authored by ONE though recorded by quite a few different human authors. The coherency and consistency of all these books would otherwise have been impossible knowing men’s tendencies to have disparate views on almost every issue and subject. Just take a look at the “Christianity” of today with the hundreds of denominations, each with its own set of doctrines and beliefs; some are so far off that they might as well be entirely different religions all together.

Let me use mathematics as an analogy to illustrate a main point in the teachings of the Christian Bible, the whole Christian Bible message.


Mathematics.


Every student of mathematics started learning mathematics from the basic that is addition and subtraction. So this is what I will use.

Everyone (other than quantum mathematicians of course) who knows how to add and subtract knows that:

1 + 1 = 2

10 + 10 = 20

But.

1 + 1 = 2 and also 1 + 1 = 10

9 + 9 = 18 and also 9 + 9 = 12

10 + 10 = 20 and also 10 + 10 = 100

29 + 29 = 58 and also 29 + 29 = 52

And many such.

Some who “think” they know mathematics will say, what nonsense is this? But those who really know their mathematics will know that all these are correct. So is it with the Scriptures. (If the reader is having a problem to understand the mathematics' example I used above, please consult a good mathematician failing which you can also write to me and I will explain some basic concepts about numbers and numbering systems).

The point I am making is that all of the Christian Holy Scriptures agree if you know your Scriptures. The Old Testament Scriptures and the New Testament Scriptures are complimentary giving us a more complete understanding of the DIVINE will and instructions. So to those who consider themselves New Testament Christians and that the Old Testament Scriptures of the Christian Bible are no longer relevant today, I got news for you. You are not a Christian! Not one defined by the Word of GOD, because you obviously know nothing about the GOD of the Christian Bible or HIS Words.

Just like the example of mathematics I used which to many lay persons do not make sense, so also is the Word of GOD to those who do not possess the HOLY SPIRIT. What that means is these carnally minded persons just can't make sense of the Bible as a whole and are totally clueless as to what the Christian Bible actually teaches. Their understanding is based on what they were taught at their “conversion.” Only question is what were they converted to if they can't understand the Christian Bible to the extend that they believed the Old Testament Scriptures to no longer has any relevant. If you don't agree with this last point read further into this chapter where I will show how for centuries, so called “Christianity” taught many things that were in direct contradictions to what the Christian Bible recorded.

Imagine a mathematics teacher telling a student who have just graduated from grade (or primary) school and is now in high (secondary) school, ‘From now on you can forget all the arithmetical concepts you learned in primary school as they are no longer relevant. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and all the other stuff you learned previously are superseded and obsolete and no longer needed to be remembered or understood.’ And that is exactly what the Christmas religion and all the Antichrist religion are saying about the Holy Christian Scriptures, that the Old Testament records are no longer relevant and all their commandments, instructions and exhortations are to be ignored.
