If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament he would be a criminal. If he would strictly follow the teachings of the New, he would be insane. Robert Ingersoll

You always turn the other cheek and have given all your property and money to the poor?

Including the old testament?

The New Testament is the teaching to receive the available Christ and abide in Him, allowing Him to abide in us.
Living Christ is not a matter of how one acts as much as how one reacts. We learn to more and more abide in the Holy Spirit. Then Jesus flows out of our reactions ...[text shortened]... e He dispenses Himself into our souls.
Thousands are experiencing this and growing in this.
Originally posted by 667joeIt would be insane to give away everything. It would be insane to turn the other cheek. Acording to Robert Ingersoll.
You are not living up to your biblical Christian obligations by keeping even some of your property, and your response to me certainly did not turn the other cheek.
