It is really sad just how often we get that really stupid comment from people. Here at the forum, for example, you write about this and about that and then claim it to be "biblical fact". Here is a fact; when you quote scripture, that can be considered, within the limits of accuracy and completeness of existing translations, biblical fact. Any thing you say, other than the actual quote, is not biblical fact, it is your interpretation.
And yet you only offer your own words in opposition. this is because the Word's of the Bible do not refute what I call "Biblical Facts", otherwise you would have posted them.
This understanding I have goes against "YOUR" religion. It doesn't go against any of the Word's of the Bible. It is Biblical Fact that David was under the Levitical Priesthood. And it is a Biblical Fact that Abraham was not. You may not believe this truth, it may go against your religious traditions, but you can't refute it using God's Words.
So it is not "my" interpretation that David was under a different Law than Abraham where atonement is concerned. This is a simple Biblical Fact that can be shown you in your own Bible.
Think about why it is so important for you to reject this Biblical Fact. Why would you do such a thing?
It is absolutely amazing that you or anyone else would think otherwise.
I think itt would be weird too if anyone implied that. But I don't know anyone here who has. I can't believe anyone would even think that, let alone try to convince anyone else of that.
You and "many" others who come in Christ's Name, preach that Paul is speaking about the whole Law of God when He is speaking about the Pharisees trying to be justified by "works of the Law".
When you are shown in your own Bible, that God gave specific "Works" for the atonement of sins, to the Levites for a Priesthood, you ignore it, just as you deny that Abraham and David were under different "Laws" where atonement is concerned calling it "my interpretation".
You believe, it seems, as "many" others, that the Jews were trying to get the Gentiles and the Galatians to follow God's Laws for justification of sins. To deny that is simply being dishonest. You have even denied that there was a "Law" pertaining to justification given by God to Levites. Saying instead that God "ADDED" His entire Law, including the command to Love Him and Love your neighbors, 430 years after Abraham was Blessed for obeying God's Commandments as if they were not included in the Laws and Commandments the Christ gave Abraham which he obeyed.
So then given you, and the entire mainstream religious body for the most part, preach that the Work's of the Law Paul speaks to, are not the "works" given the Levites for atonement that the Jews were still promoting in Paul's time, but are the "works" of the entire Law including the First and Greatest Commandment, along with the 2nd.
Thus implying that the Jews were "bewitching" the Galatians by preaching to them they will receive the Spirit by keeping "all" of God's Laws including, but not limited to "Loving God and loving their neighbors.
How can this not be true given your own words regarding the "works of the Law" Paul spoke to?
The Christ has prophesied about the "works of the Law" many times in His Law and Prophets.
Micah 6:6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?
7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
The Jews were not teaching this, they were still promoting "burnt offering" while omitting the "weightier matters of the Law" like mercy, judgment and Faith. At least according to the Jesus of the Bible.
But if you refuse to accept the simple Biblical fact that Abraham didn't have the Levitical Priesthood, while David did, how can you expect to "know" other truths?
