Bible verse Acts 8: 14-17
14 When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
John 3:3-73 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” 4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” 5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’
John 8:34, 36 Whosoever 34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. 18 Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.
I John 5:4 4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.

The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant Mathew 18:21-35
21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”
22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.[g]
23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold[h] was brought to him. 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.
26 “At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
28 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins. He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
29 “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’
30 “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. 31 When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened.
32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34 In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.

In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord's Passover. ...

And by the abraham ex. I mean what he uses to support his idea of faith and faith alone. Which is easily smashed not only by James, but also Gen 26:5. Where the Lord himself declares why Abraham is righteous.
. . . it covers Paul's contradictory teachings to what Jesus said . . .
. . . ...God does declare Abraham righeous but not by works . . .
Theses ideas come from Paul, not Jesus or any prophet.
The angel of Sinai did not order anyone, he said if someone asked for a name, just say, "I Am".
The ancient Hebrew texts say the deity ordered to be called "YHWH".
Gad was a Semitic deity of fortune. pronouncing the ancient hebrew word sounds like "God" in English, which is where your new English word "GOD"....comes from. The Semitic deity of fortune.
Jesus and Gad (God) are of no relation. Jesus is the son of YHWH.
. . . why do you think the western "Christian" nations are filled with sinful activities?
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
Lambs were not used for Yom Kippur. That was goats, for sins, and a bull was sacrificed for the high priest to enter the Most Holy Place.
Jesus being the sacrificial lamb comes directly from the jewish faith. Lambs were used on Yom Kippur to cleanse the people of sins but that cleansing didn't last. A final solution was needed to free mankind from sin forever, an everlasting sacrifice that could be done once and for all.
Jesus himself said he came to save all mankind and there was only one way he could do that, by shedding his blood. Remember he was an observing jew but he is also God in the flesh.
I think faith is a starting point, not the main point.
God's hebrew name Is Yahovah
. . . Satan can only do that which God allows . . .
