Following Jesus Means Love not Judgment

Thank you, Howard Hallman, for your careful analysis of some of the inconsistencies/condradictions in Scripture. Yes, We need our Bishops to preach the truth about Scripture, and not allow the "literalists" to control our dialogue.

Agreed, but

What do you say to those who cite that 'I came to fulfill the law not destroy it' thing?

Fulfilling the law

Jesus' comment about fulfilling the law comes before he built on the old law ("it was said by men of old") by offering higher standards ("but I say to you") that essentially brought new meaning to the Second Great Commandment, love of neighbor, that went above and beyond the old law, thus fulfilling it in a new manner.
