You don't believe Paul had authority from Christ to allow uncircumcised gentiles to take the Lord's supper?
We do not ignore them. We see them as fulfilled perfectly and obediently in Christ. When we celebrate Christs work we celebrate all to which the Mosaic feasts pointed.
That's nice. Not scriptural, but a nice way to feel good about not obeying the Lord.
You seem to be missing the purely spiritual nature of 1 Cor. 5:7,8. First of all, it says that Christ is our Passover. He is the one to Whom the Mosaic Passover pointed. The Mosaic Passover was the shadow and Christ is the substance.
Second, it tells us how to keep this feast (i.e., Christ our Passover), with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Paul is not speaking at all about the old ceremonies with animal sacrifices and physically unleavened bread.
Exactly, except that physical lessons reinforce spiritual lessons. For example, honoring the Lord by observing his Passover reminds us every year of the sacrifice of Christ. Celebrating the days of unleavened bread by avoiding leavening teaches and reminds us to seek out and remove sin from our lives so we can have the "unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."
He is speaking spiritually of how we are to approach the throne of Christ. He is our Passover. We do not need to keep the passover of men.
Not of men. But by recognizing that the Lord still has a purpose for his holy days it teaches us, it makes us his disciples.
Peter NEVER ate animal flesh that scripture defined as unclean.
Thats exactly what Paul said he did. You can disagree with Paul if you wish, but his words could not be plainer. Why dont you deal with the actual text and explain it to us.
Paul never said that Peter ate the flesh of animals designated unclean by the Lord. Paul didn't even say that the gentiles were sitting around eating pork chops. All of this is just your supposition based upon projection of your beliefs back to biblical times. Pharasetical jews had established an onerous system of rules and regulations for dealing with gentiles. Nearly all were non-scriptural. To believe this requires that all you do a little bit of study about Judaism and especially of that period.
What amazes me is how some are quick to point out that understanding Elohim'sshalom b'shem Yah'shua
Holy Word and recognizing and observing His commanded Feast days is soundly condemned
by those that have embraced all the non-scriptual Pagan feasts days like Easter and
Absolutely no understanding that Yah'shua celebrated Pesach, HagMatzoh,
First Fruits and Shavuot a second time with an enhanced meaning.
Leaving the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Kippur and Sukkoth to be left for future celebration by Yah'shua.
No understanding of the Feast Shemini Atzeret and its future meaning.
