    If the Mosaic Law was not in accordance with the wishes of, or not inspired by, the "God" that Christians worship, why isn't it just tossed out of the Christian bible?

    This sounds a little like a 'no true scotsman' argument to me, however I think you do have a point that the old testament Mosaic law is replaced in the new testament. This does of course beg the question of why the Christian Bible includes the Old Testament within it. It is an open invitation for people to read those bits and apply them, forgetting that those instructions have been annulled.

    However, this is all still arguing over your straw man. The original point was that people have been burned at the stake for criticising Christian dogma. Whether Christian dogma supports such acts is irrelevant.

    They don't want the OT to completely go away. They like the 10 commandments, the tithing requirement, and the condemnation of homosexuality as an 'abomination'.
