A serious theological question
I don't intend for this topic to be debate or divisive at all. I've got a serious question about modern Christian theology, and I'd like to hear some personal perspectives. Mods, please do move this if it belongs elsewhere.
I'm an agnostic-turned-athiest, and my spouse is a Christian theist (we've been separated for three years). Her theological position is a common mainstream one, I think - she believes that only the new testament applies, and that the old testament laws do not have to be followed by Christians any longer. I think that this position is supported by the gospel of Paul, but is contradicted elsewhere. She's not able to provide a scriptural defense for her position, it's what she was taught, that's her story, and she's sticking to it. I've found this position to be interesting and it's one that I have not really been able to grasp.
I'd like to gain a better understanding of the scriptural support regarding conformance (or non-conformance) to the OT laws. So I guess what I'm looking for is scriptural references in the NT regarding the new covenant vs. the old.
I'm going to hell.
