The Old Testament lays the foundation for the teachings and events found in the New Testament. TheRead More Bible is a progressive revelation. The New Testament is only completely understood when it is seen as a fulfillment of the events, characters, laws, sacrificial system, covenants, and promises of the Old Testament. In both testaments, God reveals Himself to us and how we are to come to Him through Jesus Christ and discover all we need for eternal life and godly living.

It's all about the churches and other organizations wanting to force people into a mold, and tellRead More them what they must be. It's all about control, and rejecting anyone who does not accede to the organization's authority. If you won't or can't fit the mold, you're rejected and denigrated.
