Apparently it does. It helps OP avoid some of the dangers that are inherent to preaching to people face to face.
Like racists, the anonymity of the web offers the safety to say what he likes without the possibility of retribution or consequence. If I met someone IRL that was as insistent as OP in regurgitating their mythology at me as OP seems to be, they had better be versed in fisticuffs
Once understood, Paul taught a parallel doctrine with respect to the Law as was embraced by the Ebionites. The problem is that modern Jews remain in bondage to the written word, while Christians who fail to comprehend the true meaning of the Law, dwell in lawless abandonment that makes them apostates to the Kingdom of God..
Unless you can answer these questions
You Cannot be a Disciple of Yeshua/Jesus
For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:18-20 NAS).
Students of Hebrew Mysticism will perceive that what the third-century Christian Church Father Origen wrote was no different than what is contained in the Zohar, where it states: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not. The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.
These great truths are again demonstrated in the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”. These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees”.
