For all the world I can't see why posting an article about keeping the holy days of the Lord Jesus Christ engenders such negative vitriol. Can you explain it?
I’ll repeat myself. We. Are. Not. JEWS!
I’m not an anti-semite or Jew-hater in any form, but we Christians do not need to keep Jewish holy days. If you’re going to do that, why don’t we argue that Christians should stop eating pork and shellfish because Christ would not have done so?
And I can’t help but detect a hint of anti-Catholicism in your posts. I’ve since learned to smell it from a mile away.
Just quoting ST Paul.
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster [to bring us] unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
[Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Gal 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
Gal 4:10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
Gal 4:11I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
Because of hardness of the heart due to the lack of love of the truth. Come on, Gal 5:1 is liberty from obedience to the Word of God as defined by the Word of God? Who was Paul speaking to in Galatians? Former gentiles who knew not God, but now that they know Him and are known by Him, they were turning back to their pagan practices, their pagan calendars and feast days and detestable eating habits because they had been told a lie by the false brethren who had infiltrated the congregation.
Gal 4:8 But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. 9 But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.
So what lead to this?
Gal 2:3 Yet not even Titus who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised. 4 And this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage),
The salvation by works Pharisees of the circumcision party, the false brethren of Acts 15:1 claimed that one is not saved unless one is circumcised and once one is circumcised, then one can not loose ones reward of eternal life. WRONG!!! Circumcision has never gotten anyone eternal life, ever, it is merely an outward sign of what has already taken place in the heart.
