Friday the thirteenth was not a good day for you "liberals", was it, lojbab?
But it was a GREAT day for Christianity. Hallelujah.
It's the day you proclaimed that Jesus Christ was a LIAR, and proved the
idiocy of your decrepit jewish and "liberal" "moral code".
There isn't a single word in the Holy Bible that even hints that Christ's
Twelve Disciples, His followers, Christians, or other Israelites, were ever
given permission to disobey His commandments. When it was written: "These
twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of
the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go
rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach,
saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand", Christ told an indelible TRUTH
that can never, ever change.
His Disciples didn't have permission, much less authority, to change his
Commandments, nor Israelite law, nor the Holy Bible, ever. And by most
accounts, they didn't.
At this point in time, the Israelites were scattered amongst ALL NATIONS.
Christ told His Twelve Disciples to go ONLY to Israelites who had been
scattered to ALL NATIONS. Had Christ not done so, He would have been in
direct violation of Israelite law Himself.
Why would He do that? He WOULDN'T.
"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes
which are scattered abroad, greeting." James 1:1
Was James writing to "ALL NATIONS". YES.
Was he writing to ALL RACES? NO! He, just like Christ, was addressing ONLY
the Israelites in ALL NATIONS, just as Christ commanded him. Was this AFTER
the Ressurection? YES!
When Christ said: "repentance and remission of sins should be preached in
his name among all nations", He didn't give them permission to violate God's
Law or trash the entire history of the Israelites, or wreck the Twelve
Tribes of Israel--He gave them ONLY a command to uphold GOD's LAW as it was
written for millennia.
The LAST thing in the world Christ would have done is to give his Twelve
Disciples instructions to preach to JEWS, much less accept them into the
congregation of the LORD.
