Mr. B. [Q on Marcionism] : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread

Hi Chris Do you know where I can find an answer to this question from Frank? Thanks Courtenay

Chris, you quoted, The Church has always vigorously opposed the idea of rejecting the Old Testament under the pretext that the New has rendered it void (Marcionism).

If it would interest you, I think this would make an interesting thread in itself, as to some extent, Christ's teaching does (for me) invalidate OT teaching. For example, in Mark 10:

2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" 3 "What did Moses command you?" he replied. 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." 5 "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. 6 "But at the beginning of creation God `made them male and female.'[1] 7 `For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[2] 8 and the two will become one flesh.'[3] So they are no longer two, but one. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."

I guess what I'm getting at is that while we may "respect" the OT, would you say that there is EVER a case that an OT teaching would supercede that of Christ's teaching? I don't believe so, and so would say that while we haven't *technically* rendered the OT invalid, it must take a definitely inferior role to the NT. How would this be different than Marcionism (if in any case the NT speaks it assumes priority over the OT)?

I am left wondering if your saying the OT is nullified therbye negating spiritual development of man's inheritance? The OT is so vastly rich with wisdom it boggles the mind.

" Never before nor will there be another be like you born of Man for you asked for Wisdom " I thought is what God The Father said to Solomon the anointed King.

Ques: who are the three anointed ones in under God's Laws? Hint is P-P-P.

Kevin, try to use the brain God gave you, please.

First, notice the fact that the opening message of the thread is actually a stack of messages posted a long time ago.

Next, notice my name and e-mail address.

Figure it out yet? I am restoring to the forum some threads that were deleted without authorization (by someone other than the moderator).

Don't expect me to post new replies to these threads. But do expect me to be around for a while, because hundreds of threads were deleted. (You are free to leave if this bothers you. I know that I won't miss you!)

Calling yourself ''thread restorer'' makes you seem untrustworthy to say the least. Why not call yourself ''messenger nobody cares about''-- I think it would be a better handle.

People too cowardly to act in the open should simply stay out of others' company. If you expect to be part of this forum, act like a man and state your true name. It's half-way to confessing your ''thread restorations'' have no practical use here, if you can't identify yourself openly with them. Please learn to be straightforward and drop the punk pretenses.

MRS CHAVEZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Youre our only hope! I pray that in between your regular cleaning up of pools of drool off equpiment and spittle from the screen for this man, that you read this message. Disconnect the modem! Do it now! Hew wont notice for days, he writes the same stuff anyway!

Btw consider a plastic cover over the keyboard for Eugene it will save you considerable time and bother.
