Saul of Tarsus is essentially saying the lamb of God has KNOWINGLY BLOTTED OUT TORAH; ABOLISHED TORAH; has PERMANENTLY forgiven the Gentile believer of EVERY SIN, ENDED TORAH, took TORAH out of the way and nailed TORAH to the cross. Well? WHEN did the lamb of God SAY he did such a thing? And WHEN did he teach this hot mess to his original disciples?
The man from Galilee claimed he came to complete, make whole, make perfect, complement and put the finishing touches on Torah, the same way that a baker puts icing on a cake. FINE. We’ll roll with that for now.
☝☝☝If this is the case, why do Christians insist otherwise? Because the lamb of God is NOT the founder of Christianity. Saul of Tarsus is the founder of Christianity.
(Romans 10:4) “For Christ is [THE END OF TORAH] for righteousness to every one that believeth.” <— you can’t get any plainer than that. Saul of Tarsus is CONTRADICTING the man from Galilee yet AGAIN.
(Colossians 2:13,14) “And you, being dead in your sins and uncircumcised, hath [the lamb of God raised you from the dead together with him, having [PERMANENTLY] forgiven you all trespasses] <— this is FALSE.
The new testament messiah NEVER said the sins of Gentiles are FORGIVEN. <— He never said Gentiles had to obey Torah at all! The new testament messiah clearly stated that he was NOT sent to bring salvation to, or forgive the sins of the Gentiles:
“But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 15:24
What is sin?
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth [TORAH AND THE COMMANDMENTS]: for sin is the transgression of [TORAH AND THE COMMANDMENTS].”
1 John 3:4
Torah is and always has been for THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.
Technically speaking, working on the sabbath, eating pork, touching the dead carcasses of unclean animals, making graven images, wearing mixed linen, etc, are NOT necessarily sins for a Gentile, because Torah was NEVER given to, meant for, purposed for or intended for ANY OTHER NATION than the children of Yisrael. If other nations wanted to partake in the blessings of Yisrael, the men of those nations had to be circumcised and EMBRACE THE UNALTERED, UNEDITED, UNDILUTED, RAW, UNCUT, TORAH. Gentiles are NOT commanded to obey Torah unless they want to join themselves to The Most High’s people. Otherwise, the behavior of the Gentile/heathen (working on the sabbath, eating unclean foods, worshipping idols, making graven images, touching unclean things, wearing mixed linen, etc) is irrelevant, pointless, neither here nor there, redundant, futile, inconsequential AND DOESN’T MATTER, as far as the children of Yisrael are concerned. Torah was given to the Children of Israel —> a set apart nation. Not to the Gentile/stranger. So, what may be an act of sin for an Israelite (*transgression of the Law (1 John 3:4) is NOT necessarily an act of sin for the Gentile. Gentiles are NOT under any kind of covenant with The Most High, therefore, they are NOT BOUND TO OR OBLIGATED to obey The Most High’s Torah. But if the heathen Gentile wants to join themselves to The Most High’s people, their males MUST BE CIRCUMCISED (literally, not just “of the heart”) and they MUST EMBRACE AND OBEY THE MOST HIGH’S TORAH:
“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. [NEITHER LET THE SON OF THE STRANGER, THAT HATH JOINED HIMSELF TO THE LORD, SPEAK, SAYING, THE LORD HATH UTTERLY SEPARATED ME FROM HIS PEOPLE]: Neither let the eunuch say, behold, I am a dry tree. For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs [that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. ALSO THE SONS OF THE STRANGER, THAT JOIN THEMSELVES TO THE LORD, TO SERVE HIM, AND TO LOVE THE NAME OF THE LORD, TO BE HIS SERVANTS, EVERY ONE THAT [keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and TAKETH HOLD OF MY COVENANT [TORAH]; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices [SHALL BE ACCEPTED] upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. The Lord GOD, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, [YET WILL I GATHER OTHERS [NATIONS/GENTILES] TO HIM [ISRAEL], BESIDE THOSE [NATIONS/GENTILES] THAT ARE GATHERED UNTO HIM.” Isaiah 56:1-8
“And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. One [TORAH] shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.” Exodus 12:48,49
And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; [AS YE DO, SO HE SHALL DO]. One [TORAH] shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD. Numbers 15:14,15
☝☝☝The Torah was NEVER given or intended for Gentiles/strangers. But if the Gentiles/strngers wanted to join and be a part of Israel and partake of Israel’s blessings, their males had to be CIRCUMCISED (literally, not just metaphorically) AND TO ALSO EMBRACE AND OBEY TORAH AS THEIR ONLY CONSTITUTION. ☝☝☝ Read those above Bible verses as many times as necessary.
So, what is Saul of Tarsus is trying to do? He’s trying USE THE MAN FROM GALILEE, to circumvent TORAH and THE MOST HIGH by telling Gentiles that they DON’T have to obey Torah to enjoy the blessings of Israel, which the man from Galilee supposedly made available to them through his death on a cross. There are two problems here: (1) The Most High never said that could be done (2) the man from Galilee NEVER SAID HE CAME TO DO THAT.
Isaiah 56:1-8, Exodus 12:48,49 and Numbers 15:14,15 states CLEARLY what a Gentile/stranger must do to be grafted in to the Nation of Yisrael.
When Saul of Tarsus told the Gentiles in Colossae: —>THAT WAS AGAINST US, WHICH WAS CONTRARY TO US <— that portion of his statement is somewhat true. If the Gentiles of Colossae saw nothing wrong with making graven images of their deities, working on the sabbath, eating unclean animals, touching the carcasses of unclean animals, wearing mixed linen, etc —-> Torah being AGAINST them and CONTRARY to them is TRUE. Because Torah was NEVER given to, or meant for Gentiles or strangers. But when Saul said, “AND TOOK IT OUT OF THE WAY, NAILING IT TO HIS CROSS” —> Saul LIED. Torah was never given to or meant for the Gentile. You can’t “take something out of the way” which was never put in your way, because it was NEVER meant for you in the first place.
Nevertheless, Saul is saying Torah was taken out of the way specifically for the Gentiles, with the messiah’s blood. <— This “gospel” goes directly against Isaiah 56:1-8, Exodus 12:48,49 and Numbers 15:14,15. And the new testament messiah NEVER said he did such a thing or that he came to do such a thing. The rose of Sharon likewise, NEVER differentiated his gospel between Israelites and Gentiles:
“Go ye therefore, and teach [ALL NATIONS], baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU.” Matthew 28:19,20
“ALL NATIONS” means ALL NATIONS, including Gentile nations. If the Gentile/stranger wants to join and be a part of Yisrael, they MUST be circumcised (literally, not figuratively) and they MUST EMBRACE AND OBEY TORAH AND THE COMMANDMENTS.
The Law was NOT abolished or nailed to any cross. Once again, Saul of Tarsus is a LIAR.
