The Old Testament shows God in such a bad light, I don't understand why you want to enthusiastically quote something like that.
The Old Testament is an embarrassment to the religion, Christians would do well to pretend it didn't exist.
The Ten Commandments
1 And God spoke all these words:
2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
7 “You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
Yeah complete crap really, nothing there anyone would agree with...oh wait wasn't some of this the basis of our legal system?
Sorry folks but again this boils down to the fact that we (Christian's) believe God is God and his way is just and that following the way of life he wants for us is worth it, it brings joy and contentment and eternal life with him. On the other hand we have those who think this is rubbish, brainwashing and a crutch. Say what you like, I keep getting told that the best way is to let people believe what they like if it makes them happy...this makes us happy, leave us to it
