20. Judaism and Chrisitanity are not merely copied
Edited on Mon Apr-18-11 05:35 PM by OKIsItJustMe
Clearly, certain legends are based on earlier legends (e.g. The Garden, The Flood) however, there are significant new aspects, e.g. (The Golden Rule.)

While a number of ancient religions teach that you should not do to others that which you would not have done to you, Christianity reverses this:

http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=170165042

Matthew 7:12

In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.


(It's not sufficient not to do evil to others, you must do good to others.)

http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=170165244

Matthew 5:43-48

43You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
