  1. There’s a quote from Genisis in the French peice. As far as I know Jesus rejected the old testament in it’s literal sense and created the parables most of which ended up in a new testament. or new covenant.

    If Christians go around quoting the old testament verbatum, I suppose techically they’re not realy Christians but something else.

    1. Something else = ignorant. That’s all. Christians love to quote bible passages, because that’s all they have. They tend not to notice the schizophrenia of the bible because we, as humans, naturally tend towards creating a self-consistent universe in our minds, so we only selectively remember the things that fit with our vision of the universe, right or wrong. It’s an unfortunate side effect of being human.
