Who is obeying biblical commandments and showing a good example of it?
Christians are taught "When your enemy is hungry - feed him!" and to "Bless those who curse"
Don't you think that this commandment is teaching christians to help their enemies and to bless them? If so, why aren't christians doing it? Why are christians only feeding their friends?
Which people are `actually' following the commandments in the scripture? I cannot find anyone exhibiting a similar behavior to that of Jesus Christ who prayed on the cross "Father forgive them, they do not know what they do!" Who really believes these things? No-one?
Where are the good examples of a real christian?
Where have you been searching? They do excist. I was comparing religions living according to the Bible and the example of Jesus Christ. And I found only ONE religion: Jehovah´s Witnesses. They are honest people that work hard to be true Christians. Every day they are studying and trying to obey the Bible.
The ten commandments were lifted straight out of the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
And the laws of moses (deuteronomy) were copied from the Codex Hamurrabi. There is even archaelogical evidence that the inhabitants of Canaan (the Canaanites/Phoenicians) lived by Hamurribi's code of law before the Israelites (the Hyskos/Hyksos people: the Egyptians called them 'the shepherd kings) ever arrived there after being driven out of Egypt by Thutmosis the Third.
I also agree with your point whoisbid - that christians tend to talk the talk and hardly ever walk the walk. Children are being killed all over the world in wars waged by the christian west. But christians seem not to notice.
I think it is not as literal is put but generally to mean forgive those who hurt you. But that said the last person I knew to truly follow the bible was my father. He would be selfless to the point that it seemed ridiculous to me. But as I've aged I realize it is because he was attempting to teach by example. If someone who hurts and hates sees another that they have hurt doing something good for them some of that hate melts away, it helps bring them closer to being a better person. That is what my dad was doing, he set the bar pretty high and I have my doubts that I could ever be that selfless.
