  1. Submission was never meant by the Old Testament God as a captive's submission. This is the submissiveness of loving children. This is a good thing for anyone who tries to contrast the Old Testament with the New.

    Deuteronomy 5: 8-10:�Do not do yourself an idol, or any likeness of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters under the earth, you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, for the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments.

  2. The teaching of Jesus is precisely ” about submission to God alone.” Submission is mentioned in the prayer ” Our Father who art in heaven … Thy will be done ” Mt 6: 6-13. Matthew 11: 28-30 ” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest; take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls; for my yoke is good and my burden is light.

  3. It doesn't ruin it.

    All the prophets came to the world at the time of the Old Testament – the time of “man's knowledge of good and evil, being as gods“, the time of the Decalogue, whose commandments became guiding milestones for that time until the Birth of Christ. It was precisely these commandments that the prophets called for submission to.

    After the Birth of Christ, a new time came – the time of the return of fallen man to God … through repentance, which is possible only in Love and Love for Him!

  4. In any case, it does not destroy. The foundation of the prophets from the One True God is based on the law of Moses. Jesus Christ said that all this law and the prophets are reduced to one thing:

    “Love your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind … and love your neighbor as yourself. These two commandments are the foundation of all the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 22: 37-40).

  5. And what is obedience, submission to God, without love? Slavery based on fear or self-serving motives for obtaining benefits for this earthly fleeting life?

  6. no, for one thing grows out of the other.. The construction of a building does not destroy the foundation on which it is built. All these are interrelated things, you just need to have an understanding. Without it, you can get lost in two pines.

  7. What is the basis of the teaching of the prophets? When God appeared to Moses, Moses said::

    4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the Lord is one; 5 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 let them be And these words, which I command you today in your heart (and your soul); 7 and you must inculcate them in your son and speak of them when you sit in your house and walk by the way, and when you rise up; 8 and bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be a bandage over your eyes, 9 and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.


    And as it says here, so it is:

    The Shema occupies a central place in Jewish spiritual life. This prayer is recited twice a day, during the morning prayer (shaharit). and evening (ma'ariv) prayers. This is the first prayer that the child says, and the last words that the dying person says.


    Read the highlighted text — what are the prophets based on?

  8. Of course it doesn't ruin it! The Lord says, “If you love Me, keep My commandments” (John 14: 15). The love of God is precisely manifested through obedience to Him and sincere good deeds resulting from faith in Jesus. If your son wanted to spit on your reasonable prohibitions or requests, then what kind of love and respect for parents can we talk about here? This is especially true for the love of God.
