Are you sure that the Old Testament teachings are the teachings of <GOD> himself?
From where I sit, the Old Testament teachings sound like the teachings of a spoiled rotten brat, who has convinced himself he is God and who is fighting with his brothers and sisters over power and ownership rights.
<GOD> does not want us to sit still and stay.
<GOD> wants us to question “our” reality.
<GOD> want “us” to wake the fuck up and fight for our “lives”.
The Old Testament Man says: “do not worry, stay calm, do not fight me and while you are at it, kneel and beg and I will give you a place in heaven”.
BUT “He” is lying.
And <GOD> wants “us” to see ourselves and what “Man” has done to “us”!
The true war of Armageddon is between Man (Lord God) and the new born life of <GOD>, <WHO> will be able to see “Man”.
You cannot win a war that you do not know you are in.
You cannot win a war, when you have no idea who your enemies are.
I am a war zone and have been fighting the battle on my own, for what feels like forever.
You know what I get told by the unaware, self-aware forms: Sit, stay, roll over, beg and most important do not question “Man’s authority.
The only problem is, they think he is God.
