Some Scriptures Christians Choose To Ignore

Post by SEG » Sun Nov 11, 2018 10:11 pm

We know that Christians choose to ignore some of the OT scriptures like killing homosexuals or disobedient children, despite what Jesus told them to uphold all the laws forever, but what about the New Testament instructions? What we find are many scriptures even there that are completely ignored by Christians, such as the following examples:
Luke 6:29-30

“Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back”

Matthew 5:32

“But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”

James 5:14

“Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up.”

Matthew 6:19

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.”

I Corinthians 14:34

“The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak.”

Luke 14:12-14

“Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
Why can't they respect and abide by these instructions?
Premise One: If a compassionate God exists, then he would do things just as a compassionate person would.
Premise Two: God doesn't do things as a compassionate person would.
Conclusion: Therefore, a compassionate God does not exist.
