Having worked with Christians and been taught Christian teachings (prodestent) the Old Testement is important but by sending Jesus that is swept away. It's not discarded completely, as evidenced with the tale of Annanias and Sapphira, but by and large forgiving those who do evil has a much greater amount of importance than punishing those who do evil. Example? You want an example? Okay, Jesus standing before the mob set to stone a harlot to death wrote on the ground "He who is without sin cast the first stone." Even the purest of the pure have what is known as 'original sin', when Adam and Eve went against God in the Garden of Edan, if you believe in that sort of thing. In fact the whole story of Jesus dieing on the cross for our sins is the point of casting aside the old ways and bring about the new ways. That is why Christians no longer bjurn livestock for guilt offerings, there is no ark for the Ten Commandments carried around, ect.
