You are the Temple of God. God isn't in the building, but the believer. Whereever 2 or more are gathered in His name, there He is in the midst of
them, which doesn't mean He's not there if there aren't 2.
What this amounts to, frankly, is an example of the same issues that confronted Yeshua (Jesus) during His Earth ministry: Hundreds of years of
believing man made and inspired concepts, which had been carried to the nth degree, and called "the Law", but which in reality, were just a bunch of
man made laws.
Yes, Moses was inspired. Yes, Paul was inspired. But infallible? Not in their lifetimes.
Notice how Yeshua keeps re-examining the Laws as pronounced by Moses, such as the example regarding divorce. What did Yeshua basically prove in His
statement? That Moses was a faulty man, who knowing the faultiness of humanity in general, had provided laws to placate the people, laws that were
tailored for the times. This is also what Paul did. He tailored his epistles with time-sensitive information, just like any pastor, preacher or your
neighbor might do. These were human beings. And so is the Pope.
Yeshua's words are the only valid words on this planet. And, thankfully, you can have the living word via the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, not
just a book with the ideas of men in it.
