The Empire includes The New Testament through the book Have You Done Something Good for Someone Else Today? (Have You Done) in what can be applied (we have to disregard their points in what regards sex, for instance).
This book replaces The New Testament because it contains an updated message of God.
The New Testament is seen as a bundle of confusion by The Empire.
Be it because of who wrote it or because of who edited it, or even because of those who translated it, the book cannot be respected.
The most unacceptable actions of Jesus Christ that are described as his acts in The New Testament are probably splitting fathers from mothers and parents from kids.
29“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life. 31But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
This cannot be acceptable.
Our God never told us to leave our children behind for any reason.
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
We also have the turn the other cheek instruction:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."
No, we do not humiliate ourselves before the enemies of God. We at most do not react in order to survive or something. Do not resist the one who is evil? - This can only be some sort of joke in those times.
None of this is acceptable either.
Jesus could be told to have started Spiritism (there is mention to consultation with the deceased in the Bible way before The New Testament however):
10I want to know the Messiah —what his resurrection power is like and what it means to share in his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, 11though I hope to experience the resurrection from the dead.
14Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. 15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43And he took it, and did eat before them.
Nobody is known to have raised from the dead and have flesh and bones that we can touch or mouth with which they can eat the same things that we eat. Nobody in our entire human history apart from those who have not medically died and have been buried, for instance.
Jesus promised the apostles that they would all have life after death, but none appeared like him after death.
We cannot respect this book.
The Jews are told to be God's chosen people, for they were the people from Jerusalem. They have lived in this world since at least the time of Christ. They do not accept Christ as the savior or The Son of God.
We therefore cannot read from this book or accept it.
Some argument used by the Jews to refute Jesus as the Mesiah are found in Jews, arguments, Jesus is not the Messiah
1Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying, 2Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people Israel
God has called the people from Israel His people.
The people from Israel were also the Jews.
There is no other people who we knew exist still nowadays apart from the Jews in terms of those who could have witnessed the acts of Jesus.
If they say that he was not the Messiah, then that must be true, intuitively.
Notwithstanding, their arguments, in the source we here mention, seem to be extremely sound, scientific arguments.
We do not support their choice of denying all spiritual powers of Jesus however.
We simply reject The New Testament as a book.
It would, for instance, be much more reasonable if the entire families of the apostles had gone with Jesus to his missions.
That is probably what happened.
