I would like your opinions on the Old Testament vs. the New Testament. I often see (including on a recent poll) arguments that say a particular passage/rule/etc. is from the Old Testament & no longer applies because of the acts of Jesus. On the other hand, other times I see Christians quoting the Old Testament & basing some of their opinions on scripture from it. Do you feel that Old Testament was mostly negated by the New? Do you believe that there are only select passages that are negated by the New Testament? Or do you believe that the whole Bible & everything it dictates is applicable because it is all the word of God? Or, perhaps, you have some different take on it? I am curious to hear different opinions on the issue.
*Note I am not a Christian & am only asking because I am interested in Theology & modern interpretations - just so you know where I am coming from.

Answered at 4:23 PM on May. 31, 2009 by: scout575 I could elaborate, but if you are not a believer of it anyway.. then you will make your own assumptions for why the Bible is laid out the way it is.
I can appreciate theology that I don't believe in & like to understand people's interpretations - thus I ask these questions- so if you would like to share more please do.
In my previous question on body modification I posted an argument I found online (it is long, sorry) about this issue if you would like to consider the issue I would love to hear comments on it.
