|Good post, Brad.
This is a good explanation of both belief systems. I was once a member of a church that endorsed Oneness Pentecostalism, but now I have come to see the heresy in it, and at the same time I still see the heresy of Trinitarian doctrine. I now see things from a Jewish perspective (One Devine Being with two attributes: the Father, the Word and the Breath). I see B'rit Chadasha (NT) as a continuation of TaNaKh (OT), which means I still hold the view that Yahweh is still unseen, and there is none beside him that we are to worship; we worship only the Father. It's still not according to orthodox teachings that the churches hold to, but orthodoxy according to men's judgment has never meant much to me, to be quite frank.
Love in Yahweh,

|4||Yes, I agree. Here's what I understand:||Prov 28:9||Eliyahu||161997|
|The way I understand these verses is a little differently.
The verse in Romans that is often translated as "Messiah is the end of the law", often appears in the interlinears to mean, "Messiah is the end goal of the Law". This not saying that he is bringing it to an end, becuase, otherwise, how could that be possible if He were writing it upon our hearts (see, Jeremiah 31:33)? If he writes it upon our hearts, then it should be our new nature to walk in righteousness, just as he did (I John 2:6). We received the righteousness of the Messiah when he died for us. What that means is, the righteous nature of Torah observance of this devout Torah observant Rebbe was transfered to us to replace our carnal nature, so that we would be changed from within, instead of trying to depend on our own works for our salvation. He was the only one who was righteous on this earth and he was sinless, meaning he never did anything to transgress the Torah (I John 3:4), and so when he died, and lives in us, it is his righteousness that is transfered to us. I John 3:8-10 makes it clear.
So what is missing in the church today? Why aren't they walking in the righteousness of our promised King of Yisrael? Rather, it seems that they rebel against it. What's your opinion on this? Peace be upon you.
|5||Agreed, but on that note....||Prov 28:9||Eliyahu||161994|
|I agree to these verses you have posted. But there's something else in my spirit that is calling out to me about walking in righteousness. In Yeremyahu (Jeremiah) 31:33, it says that the Covenant that is coming, being mediated by the Meshiach, would write the Torah upon our hearts. It will not be as before where the Torah is written on parchment for us to read and try to measure ourselves up to, but it will be a new nature within us, replacing our carnal nature. Hence, in walking by the Spirit given to us (I John 3:24), we keep the Torah by nature. So that leaves me with this question:
If the Messiah writes the Torah upon our hearts, that we keep it because it is our new nature, why don't I see this in our modern churches? Is something missing in today's church? I'm not trying to preach legalism, but at the same time, I'm certainly not going to promote "illegalism" (or lawlessness) either. Any thoughts? Shalom.
|6||Torah observance in the church??||Prov 28:9||Eliyahu||161968|
|If those who turn away their ear from hearing the Torah are an abominable noise in Yahweh's ears when they pray, how come the Church doesn't keep the Torah?|
