Hi and thanks all for the warm welcome!
Much love to you from my heart.
I want you to know I agree with the general statements of belief held here.
My personal view is that this verse in Acts sums up the Christian walk:
Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.
Acts 9:31 KJV
Walk in the Fear of the Lord and Comfort. Lion and the Lamb. Alpha Omega.
It is why we have grace and on the other side of the coin repentance. Showing ourselves to be true disciples.
Anyway, love you all very much! Such warm greetings.
About the Jewish stuff. Well, I have done extensive studies because the whole Christian spectrum is flooded with various theology, and not all good.
Some people are Christ's and just honestly mistaken, other are more corrupt in heart and sowing to the Flesh regarding their theology.
Not to turn this into a sermon. I was just saying it is not necessary to live as a Jew. Sure there are great lessons to be learned from Jewish sources, they were G-d's elect amongst the nation's!
I was just saying to anyone who may be confused about the Hebrews Roots Movement that you don't need to give up Lobster. G-d accepted you as you are according to the example of the New Testament.
Men and women who were Gentiles (not adhering to the dietary laws) were being baptized and receiving the Holy Spirit guaranteeing their inheritance. As Paul said about them "The law of God was written on their hearts bearing witness".
The moral law of G-d, which is summed up as:
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew 22:37-40 KJV
This is the HEART (G-d's heart) of the matter. Therefore Paul taught "Remain as you are called". And also why the Jerusalem council wrote the very basic morality of the law in their letters:
For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
Acts 15:28-29 KJV
They also knew the more specifics of the Moral Law was being taught everywhere, for as it is written:
For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Acts 15:21 KJV
I hope this clarifies my live as Jews statements in my original post. Not that I condemn anyone for wanting to live as a Jew. But I just wanted to show it was not necessary.
G-d accepted you as you are.
G-d is love!
Grace and Peace!
