What part of New England do you live in?
I didn't say the OT was not inspired. The major difference between the OT & NT is the difference between the Law & Grace.
The difference between them is:
The Law is external and requires you to obey the Law.
Grace is internal ("I believe" is something that is active, not passive.)
Augustine said that the Sermon on the Mount was "a perfect standard of the Christian life". I was pleased to find Augustine's opinion as it agreed with mine. The "Be Attitudes" do not provide one attribute to an individual; but all to each.
