Re: Between the burning cross and the rebel flag.
In your statement "Jesus never denied the Old Testament. he came to fulfill it, to implement a better "second-phase" to it". The part to implement a better second-phase is changing it. He did not come to implement a better second phase to it. He came to get the people to practice it in spirit and not just by the letter of the law. The people were living like we are today, just practicing empty rituals and not loving our fellow man. Jesus came to teach that the most important thing is to practice the essence of the religion and not put too much emphasis on just the rituals. In fact it is this type of movement that is going to save the entire world.
