I know, religion and politics.
Quick informal poll here. What's the most important lesson of the New Testament, in your opinion? I'll post my answer tomorrow morning.

Don't be a douchebag, duh.

Be kind to other people and be forgiving. That's what Jesus preached and that's what the entire book was supposed to be about, not any of the bashing and hatred that seems to be going around.

Treat others as you'd like to be treated.

"Oh fuck God was a total jackass in that first bit, maybe we should fix that"

That's what I took from it, anyway..

Definitely a good point there. There's a whole lot of the mea culpa thing going on there, and suggesting that a kinder, gentler approach may be needed.

Jesus had his moments. Fig tree, moneychangers, a few other incidents. The jackass quotient didn't vanish.

I don't think anything Jesus did was quite as bad as Job. Or, say, killing everything on the planet.

Sometimes you have to be a dick to make a point. Seems that Jesus did it as needed to smack someone upside the head!

The fulfillment of the laws of Moses (And some would argue the laws of Noah and Abraham as well)
