I think the golden rule undoes most of the Old Testament.

Copied/pasted from here:

Quote:

Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. —John 13:33–35 (KJV)
Unfortunately, that "new commandment" seems to come with a lot of extraneous baggage.

Well of course, but that's the line of reasoning that many Christians use when ignoring the old testament.

But is there a legit dividing line between the old and new testament, cause otherwise it all just sounds like a mish mash of nonsense.

Jebus>archaic law disguised as religious texts

Pretty sure that's the line.

And is there anything that makes Islam better?

They have Sufis, who have some seriously amazing art and culture, but that's about it.

And Christianity doesn't? I'm sorry, but while Islam in the Renaissance gave us some great ****, it's otherwise just as much garbage as any other major religion. I understand the desire to desire to defend muslims, but their religion doesn't sound any less garbage than anyone else's, and everyone's religion is basically garbage.
