So Jesus was a great teacher and example. So were lots of
other people. If this is what Christianity boils down to then it has no
distinctive message at all.
Don P: Comparing Christ to a coworker giving you some advice is a total
misrepresentation of what I said. Of course that's not a first, nor a last.
Now on the other hand, when the boss comes in and tells you how something is
done, you do it. I don't know about you, but I would follow the boss and not
your coworkers. If you can't tell the difference, just look at the paycheck.
In other words, your cute comparison of Christ being just a teacher is just
that, just cute. But you helped to make my point. Christ did bring new
interpretations and aspects to the OT. That is what I said although some
people do not understand English as well as others. But as is the habit, you
are unable to quote a scripture that says Christ abolished the OT. Of course
there is none and that is my point. He came to fulfill and enlighten, and in
the end die for us. He didn't use some new God or teaching, he used the same
OT that the rest of us use. When Christ did as God commanded, he did so
following the OT. Good enough for him, good enough for me.
