John: Good Stuff

  1. "Search the scriptures."
    Good advice. Because those that search the scriptures are sure to reject them. 5:39

  2. Jesus tells those who'd like to stone to death an adulteress that whoever among them that is without sin should "cast the first stone." Good advice -- but it directly contradicts the teachings of the Old Testament (Lev 20:20). If that wasn't a good law then why did God make it? Has he since changed his mind? Shouldn't it then be removed (along with most of the OT) from the bible? 8:7

  3. "The truth shall make you free." 8:32

  4. "Love one another." 13:34

  5. "This is my commandment, That ye love one another." If this is what it takes to be a Christian, then count me in. Unfortunately, Christians often take Jesus' commandment to mean that Christians should love other, like-minded Christians, and to hell with everybody else. 15:12, 17

  6. Pilate asked Jesus a very good question: "What is truth?" 18:38
