What is the Christian perspective of the New Covenant? I know they refer to Jeremiah 31:31-34 whereas with regards to the house of Israel and house of Judah,I will put "My law within them", as their new covenant, but the nations/Gentiles are not mentioned, and they, nor Jacob apparently "Know the LORD", the final product of the "new covenant", and do not have to teach each other to "Know the LORD".
As for the original covenant, "My law", if one was to keep it, they would not suffer the...

Is calling God’s curse on people all the time really healthy?
Or is it a sign of fanaticism that you are always wishing ill on people?
I am a skeptic. In practice it means that I accept limits on what I know. So I believe instead. Now I will talk about The Way or any other version of Knowing The Right Way or whatever words you use.
So here is goes with the standard non-religious approach to gods. Not all the versions of gods can be true, because they contradict each other.

Our Prime Minister just announced New Zealand would be moving in lock down for at least 4 weeks. In the last 24 hours we have 36 new cases of Covid 19 bringing our total to 102. 2 of the cases to date can not be connected to overseas travel or close contact with someone who has been infected. Therefore we must assume we now have community spread.
What total lock down means is that everyone stays at home unless they are providing an essential service. Supermarkets, doctors, pharmacies,...
