Are you a New Testament Christian?
I get disappointed with Christians who cherry-pick verses out of the Old Testament and form theology (or politics) around them. "It's in the Bible!" and "It's the same Scripture that Jesus taught!" is their excuse that ends the discussion.
The truth is, the conversation just begins there.
Here's a great example. "I know that what I'm asserting sounds contradictory to everything we know that Jesus taught, but 'Who can understand the mind of God?' It says that right in Isaiah 40!" Yes, it does. And the Apostle Paul tells Christians what that means to us today:
1 Corinthians 2:16 ESV
""For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?" But we have the mind of Christ."
