2 Corinthians 4:1-7

1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

:cross:
So you would send your own child to die instead of manning up.

Nice that you follow a religion where you have to hate your gay or female children.

Do not question your disgusting beliefs of their morals.

2 Corinthians 5:19-21

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

21 For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

This is one view of why Jesus was crucified

What is your view?
Just asking
Yahweh chose Jesus to die so that man could know that even God sins.

He sent Jesus to die, when a moral loving father would have stepped up himself. Right?


That is why Christians sing that Adam's sin was a happy fault and necessary to God's plan.

We are to emulate God as scriptures say, and god is a sinner.

God is the greatest sinner possible. Do not dare put another's name above him and break the First Commandment.


You have all sung that hymn, right?

May He soften your soul

Correct.

Your bible says you are denied a free will.

In your view, what was/is the core theme of the Old Testament?
Definition of Theme
Theme is defined as a main idea or an underlying meaning of a literary work, which may be stated directly or indirectly.
Definition of Theme
In contemporary literary studies, a theme is a central topic a text treats.[1] Themes can be divided into two categories: a work's thematic concept is what readers "think the work is about" and its thematic statement being "what the work says about the subject".[2] Themes are often distinguished from premises.
Definition of theme
1a: a subject or topic of discourse or of artistic representation
guilt and punishment is the theme of the story
b: a specific and distinctive quality, characteristic, or concern
the campaign has lacked a theme

In reading the Old Testament, what do you believe the core theme was and for what purpose was it written-?
The Messiah/Christ coming to Redeem all!
B’resheet 3:15/Genesis 3:15
I will put animosity between you and the woman, and between your descendant and her descendant; he will bruised your head, and you will bruise his heel.

For even Daniel 9:24-27 gives the exact time of Christ or the Messiah 1st Coming, verse 24 states He bring everlasting justice.
While Malachi 3:1 speaks of His New Covenant.
The Messiah states in the OT/Tanakh
16) Come close to Me, and listen to this: since the beginning I have not spoken in secret, since the times things began to be, I have been there; and now Adonai ELOHIM has sent Me and His Spirit.
17) Thus says ADONAI, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Isra’el: I Am ADONAI, your God, who teaches you for your own good. who guides you on the path you should take.
Yesha’yahu/Isaiah 48:16-17


For we as Believer understand that Isaac being offer on the altar, was just the Foreshadowing of the Messiah being offer on the cross/tree for all the world sins. Yesha’yahu/Isaiah 25:6-9 speaks very will of Yeshua/Jesus aka ADONAI victory over death.

On Jesus dying for Christians. Try to think in a moral way.

Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

Deuteronomy 24:16 (ESV) "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.

Psa 49;7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

Who will die for your sins?

You will if you believe Jesus and what he taught above.

DL
