I keep hearing ministers express the irrelevance of the Old Covenant (Old Testament/Law) as if we can toss everything prior to Matthew's gospel from the Canon of Scripture. Ironically, even though we know the New Testament is inspired and serves as Scripture illuminating the New Covenant, there is no clear reference by many of the New Testament authors confirming that they intended their writings to be such. Contrast that with numerous instances where these same authors reference the OT; refering to it as Scripture.

How do we in good conscience condemn everything OT? Tithing pre-dates the Law, but we say it's no longer relevant because it's in the OT. What about the 10 Commandments that is the cornerstone of the OT Law? Do we toss that also? Why also do many 'New Testament' churches decommission significant NT rites such as water baptism and communion? And, in light of our loose nature concerning Christian observances, why do we complain when people opt to conserve finances by 'churching at home' via television or the web?

First, you have to prove where Yeshua Himself said He came to abolish the Torah. He kept the Torah because it was commanded by His father. Temple required duties are impossible to do, because there's no temple in existence now. There's no ark of the covenant, which you sure well know. You have separated Hebrews from Gentiles all day long when it comes to the Torah. We all keep the same Torah.

Now, what you must do is show me where Yeshua said the Torah was abolished, THEN, show me where any Apostle said that the Torah was abolished. Deal?
Deal, James!

You ask questions that you already know the answer to. CHRIST's mission was not to abolish initially, but to fulfill the Torah requirements. Now that they are fulfilled, the Law of done away. You hate to see me use Romans and Galatians, but if its there, then its there!!

Romans 4:13 "For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith."

Romans 5:13 "(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law."

These are just two for a start........

You are adding words. No where did the word ever say that Christ did not come to abolish all of the Torah "initally." You added that word to support your false doctrine. Look at the word fulfill in Matt 5:17-19. Its not referring to a completed action in the sense of it being done away. In Hebraic thought, its referring to the correct way to carry out the Torah.

I do not hate to see you use Galatians & Romans. I hate to see you ABUSE Galatians & Romans. So, show me where Yeshua said that the Torah is now done away, then show me in the Epistles where it stated that all of the Torah is now done away.
CHRIST did not reveal thid directly from His mouth, but from the mouth of His Apostles and Prophets. I could have SWORN that we had a whole debate on this subject before!

Are you really looking for an answer, or are you trying to prove a point? Just a serious question.....

I'd like for you to show me the scriptures that states "all" the Torah was done away.
Answer my question please.....

Umm.. You have not yet proved it yet. I asked you that several times, and I do not have proof, so the ball is in your court bro.
I asked a simple question, which I would like an answer to: Are you really looking for an answer, or are you trying to prove a point?

I will continue with my statements later, after you answer my question please.

I asked you first to prove to me where in the bible did it say that all the Torah has been abolished. The ball is in your court. So, I'll be waiting for your proof.
I'm not gonna do this dance......
Just answer the question. I have a reason behind it. Either that, or forget it.
(DUH, Trevor!!!) How could I have missed that one?? Thanks Bro Watson.
Yea, it would go MUCH quicker (and probably be more funny!!)
