In regards to Duteronomy, The phrase that Jesus spoke of fullfilling the prophecies, also spoke that he did not come here to destroy the law. That means that the law is still valid, if Jesus himself followed it, why shouldnt we? Obey, I used the phrase dead on, you are being a hypocrite by saying im not faithful because I only follow what I choose while you are doing the exact same thing while in denial that you're doing it.
Deborah, I consider myself a Christian. By that I mean that I follow the ideals and principals taught to us by Jesus to the best of my ability. I believe that he was the incarnation of the living god, and that he died upon the cross for our sins as the final sacrifice.
Look, I'm not here to stir up a mess. I'm not here to have one or more people tell me that my relationship with God is invalid and treat me ill because they cannot fathom anything different than themselves. If one wishes to debate, again, I have no problem talking ideas, philosophies, etc. When you get down to finger pointing and name calling, you're not doing your faith any justice and I refuse to partake in it. My faith was never in question to me, but I validated it for those who have asked, which is by far more than you deserve. I hope all of you find peace and happiness on your path and I hope it leads to a fruitful life, but this beligerent attack on someone (I'll mention names...OBEY) is nothing short of disrespectful and tasteless. Argue the points, not the faith. Good day.l
