I don't want to sound like a arrogant SOB, but why are you picking on the messenger instead of discussing my message?
Jesus didn't need to read scriptures to his followers. He spoke from his heart, without resorting to endless quotes. He used parables, not
scripture. The books and the laws were what the pharasees used. Jesus spoke against the Pharasees and all their ways. He taught by his
understanding, and His spirit.
I would have Real "Christians" do what their master did, put away the books, and speak from the spirit. Do not justifiy your points or statements
with quotes from the bible, that's like borrowing someone elses' name. Speak form original thought. Real "Christians" have the spirit already in
them, and it teaches them what to say.
If you are not able to do so, then you are not yet ready to eat meat, but are still little kids. Little kids should not get into arguments with grown
People (no matter how old or young they really are) who share the Spirit of Christ do not argue or fight at all. They love each other right away.
They understand the meaning of each other's words, even if they speak different languages. That is the true gift of Christ.
Think for yourselves, I will love you, and so will Christ, and you will reap the reward of promise.
I say to put away the Old Testament becuase it is not a book of laws for the Gentiles. It is for the Jews, it is their book, and it does not become
the gentiles to practise it. Jesus liberated us from the yoke of the old, and gave us a new yoke. Don't go running back to the old now, don't
think there is greater holiness in the old, when a new one is before you. How many times has it been said? Why do you honor Solomon, when a greater
than Solomon is before you?
Really believe in Christ, and in His Father, and you will no longer be a slave to the law, or the book, but free, and liberated, and wise.
Slaves don't enter the kingdom, and the law never made anyone free. The law is powerless to save, like a dead man who sleeps in the earth. You are
gentiles, you are gentiles, establish your own law, because you are free.
Americans are even more free than the gentiles of old, we own your own country, we are our own government. Why do you bring these foreign things to
us, these old dusty books, they are not even written in our language! Why then, do you wish to bind me to these foreign things, and tie me to the
bodies of dead men long rotten in the dirt, and make me bow to their alien ways?
Are you such poor people that you have nothing of you own, and must borrow things that fell into ruins long ago?
That is what many "Christians" do, they are confused of their own nature, and some days speak like Jews, yet are not, some days like Paul, but have
no authority or holiness, some days like Jesus, but their hearts are far from him. That is what I hope to help remedy, that is what I encourge you to
cast from yourselves.
We are no longer a infant nation. We are a mature people. The spirit has manifested to many of our people, some of whom can be found here. Let us
form better unions, like the words of our wisest fathers, and demonstrate to the world what perfection and Liberty are.
