I looked up these verses, and have u actually read further before and after those verses? you need to read the whole thing to understnad what he is saying
Why does Christian theolgy state that the Law has been "fulfilled" and that things like keeping kosher need not be observed anymore, when Jesus said things like:
Matthew 5:17-18 said:
17. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18. For verily I say unto you. Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all is fulfilled.
Verse 17= He was prophesized for centuries, so he came to 'fufill' those propheises
Verse 18= Well, things change with every new generation, and society has changed, but i can't speak for whoever did that, but u have to understand Hebrew Sripture and history...its too much detail to put in this one little post.
Luke 16.17 said:
17. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail
And isn't the Messiah supposed to bring peace? And isn't Jesus about love?
I think u meant to put this under the last bible quote
Matthew 10.34-35 said:
34. Think not that I come to send peace on earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
He is all about love, he IS love....as you read furthor in teh following verses you see that we are supposed to love him more then anyone else.
Matthew 10:39: If You cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give it up for me, you will find it'
Im a part of the fellowship of the unashamed.I have Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast.I have stepped over the line.The decision has been made. Im a disciple of His.I wont look back,let up,slow down,back away,or be still...
My face is set,my gait is fast,my goal is heaven,my road is narrow,my way is rough,my companions are few,my Guide is reliable,my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised,detoured,lured away,turned back,deluded,or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice,hesitate in the presence of the adversary,negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity,or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I wont give up,shut up,let up,untill i have stayed up,stored up,prayed up,paid up,preached up for the cause of Christ.I am a disciple of Jesus.I must go till He comes,give till i drop,preach till all know,and work till He stops me; and when He comes for His own,He will have no problem recognizing me-my banner will be clear!
