Becky, can you help with giving the references ?
Please agree that “quotes” from scripture must not be taken out of context, but rightly divided.
Even in a crowded room, my prayers are private.
RE: * Why do Christians rationalize away the teachings of Jesus. He said to keep
the Sabboth and the first thing done was to change the Sabboth from Sat to Sun,
in opposition to all the teachings of Jesus and Moses. *
I would agree that if any Christian considers Sunday to be the Sabbath, they are deceived.
I pray you have taken to heart the “disannulling” which is at the root of all the individual “legal” aspects which you point at to review. Covering the encompassing topic of the disannulling would obviate any need to continue to revert back to it on every “legal” point.
Salvation is by “grace”. The “mercy seat” was a picture of the coming “grace” to be revealed in His Son.
Have you gone before His mercy seat ?
RE: * Giving the keys of heaven to Peter did not mean that he can lock the rest of us out. *
I don’t have a clue on this one ? Please don’t dig into denominational heresies to apply to me. I believe these keys are symbolic of the knowledge of the way of salvation. I try to give these keys to all whom I meet.
RE: * When Jesus said follow me, he meant just that- to do what he did and what he told you to do. That for example includes circumcism. *
I HAVE been circumcised by the Holy Ghost. (Colossians 2:11)
RE: * Paul cannot change the teaching of Jesus. Yet that is exactly what he did. And Paul was not an Apostle. That is false teaching. Saul could not defeat Christains. So he became Paul and made it a Roman religion, no longer a Jewish religion that Jesus intended it to be. He said he only came for the lost sheep of Israel. *
Do you believe Jesus spoke to Paul ?
My dear friend,
We have come full circle. You seem to know that you are a sinner, which is a big step toward the cross.
Do you believe in the resurrection of all ?
Do you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins ?
Do you believe that Jesus Christ rose from the grave on the third day and is on the right hand of the Father ?
Jesus is coming again, and my prayer is that you come to accept Him, who alone can bring forgiveness and eternal life, as your personal saviour.
