Bravo, you got my respect.Old Testament..
Haven't read OT in ages.
The application of salvation is NT.
Btw, The Nab stuff you quoted isn't 100% accurate.
I checked every one of those passages and there was a lot of inconsistency.
This is why knowing the Hebrew and Greek text is important.
God did many things in the Old testament that puzzled,
and still puzzles believers. If you want my outlook..it is this.
Back in the OT days, God was ruthless..he loved his children, but would not deal with impure action.
As his children developed mentally,
so did God's tolerance for man and their tendency to be corrupted by sin nature.
This is why Moses was used to lay down the new law,
The commandments were preparation for the Messiah's coming.
You did prove me wrong though.
There were these few passages where God did "allow" Death.
I will say this again though..he didn't say: "GO OUT AND KILL the unholy"
He simply allowed it.
Here is an example of true Nasb Hebrew translation of Leviticus 20:10 in English.
"If there is a man who commits adultery with another man's wife ,one who commits adultery with a friends wife,the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death"
Note the word "shall"
This mean God "allows" it..he;s not saying go kill every adulterer you see.
He is insinuating that those found guilty of this crime may be put to death.
I noticed many of these inconsistencies in the passages you posted.
You used words like "must"
Where in my Bible it is, words like "May" or "Shall"
Either way, Christians are to follow only certain things from the OT.
Mainly, feasts..since these are the only things Jesus himself still observed when he walked.
Everything else with the exception of Holy days,
and the commandments don't need to be applied to a Christian today.
The majority of the OT was meant for Jews and Gentiles that refused God.
I stick to what I say..
If you think in this day and age it is ok to kill,
as long as it is done in God's name..well..you're truly a fool.
