I clap for your points on the NEW versus the OLD Testament. It is very rare to hear a Christian explicate on these things. Evangelicals seem to point to the old testament to justify all manner of behavior, failing to recognize the difference between the old and the new. It is refreshing to see a Christian discuss that difference. Though I am not a Christian, I recognize Jesus Christ as a great philosopher with much wisdom. Were we to follow his lead today, peace would reign. It is why he is held in such esteem by Islam, which is something Christians would do well to recognize.
