Discussion for Deuteronomy 13

    April: You're right. Today Our Tongue can be deadly or give Life. One giving instructions used The Sword of The Spirit and The Sword of His Mouth wrong! "Murder" We are to pray for the lost,even our bosses./ Killing of Babies,Men,Women,Animals, wiping out everything. Taking nothing. It's a Picture of Our Salvation. Kill The Littlest Sin or it will Grow into a Storm of Sin. Wipe Your House Clean.

    Gil: I get that the scripture said to kill,but we are in the now times and all though we can take things from the OT,we still are under the idea of those who kill by the sword die by the sword,Even though hands are not a sword,well neither are guns,but it says also do unto others as you would want done onto yourself,before jesus this is what was to be done to obey GOD and be in HIS grace N honor..

    People need to read Eph. 5:4.
  • Irene123
    Stoning was the O.T. dispensation; and it was God's way - "My ways are higher than your ways ....." God is - GOD, and there is not a whole lot we can do about that. Now, since Jesus ascension into Heaven, is the age of Grace, not the O.T. law. There was no grace in the O.T.; there was forgiveness if you turned to Him. Grace is an ongoing thing- for this age.

    Would you really stone your own child to death for suggesting their might be truth in another god? I cannot take this as advise or wisdom. Please, can someone explain.
  • Dennis
    Do not be deceived by the harsh nature of the 13th chapter, and do not accuse God of being like other gods which are no gods. If you get anything from the inspired words of this chapter, realize the awfulness and wickedness of idolatry and God's hatred for it. Through the harsh penalties, God is graciously showing to any and all who will heed where idolatry ultimately leads, eternal death.
