  1. How do we explain Romans 3:31 ? Short answer ; Paul as a Pharisee only knew traditional Talmudic rabbinical Judaism as law. his road to Damascus experience gave him the vision to then know rabbinical tradition /law of his day was NOT the teachings of Moses ! Knowing Moses teaches you what the law could or could not do what its limits are as it defines sin. Once you learn this the mysteries of Bible open unto you. There is a reason they call it Tradition rather Judaism or Christianity. Remember the law of Moses write it upon your hearts not the letter of the law. be set free to worship in a manner expectable to god not tradition.

  2. How could we apply this to the political divide in the US? The Jew-Gentile divide reflect a peculiar similarity to the Right-Left divide (even among believers) in terms of how to live out God's Word in society. Any thoughts on this?

  3. "Jesus became what we are so that we could become what He is." Excellent statement! Thank you!
    For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

    II Corinthians 5:21

  4. watch out for hackers, they attack. Everywhere, they are left right north south, even if they disagree they agree on 1 thing, hacking. So they "love" eachother because of that. Now they hate me, for some reason, even tho I have not done anything to hurt them. I have seen them as good people fighting pedophiles etc. They are ready to kill me. I will die for my faith, the Gospel of Jesus. When electricity runs out they are finnished anyway. Let`s give them a chance to think and repend…Now, if you are attacked, post on my link, as 1 of the, is my abuser. I will have him arrested and the police and military, I have contackts high up in my country and another country, they will track his thread from there. We can not let them rule everything. Peace be with you, we have already won, halleluja Amen. Rejoyce <3

  5. The gospel of Jesus Christ, and the Way to come into His kingdom is Acts 2:38.
    You must obey John 3: 5-7; John 4:1-2; Mark 16:16; 1Peter 3:20-21; 1John 5:5-8.
    New Covenant in Christ Jesus. 8th Day, 3rd Day, 1st Day, New Creation.
    You cannot be a part of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ without obeying Acts 2:38. Acts 2:38 is the faith and obedience to enter the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. "You MUST be Born Again by the Water and the Spirit." Romans 6.
    "Even devils tremble and believe."
    "Abraham believed God and obeyed Him." Acts 2:38 saves.

  6. The Sabbath worship wasn’t included as issue in the book of Romans, but everything is all about ceremonial law like circumcision and food offer to Idol the unclean food etc. that is not allowed to eat and of course the ceremonial sabbath practice. Worshipping Sabbath or saturday is a custom of worship of the Jew because it is part of moral law of Gods Ten Commandments and it is kept by Paul and all the first Christian before. Today it is still keep because the Ten Commandments is the moral standard of God for human being. Just like thou shalt not kill today killing is still not allowed to do because it’s against morality of Ten Commandments. Just like the sabbath it’s still to be keep today because it’s part of moral law the standard of God. Remember the sabbath day to keep it Holy.

  8. i like these overviews, but i have to call you out on the sabbath – signified by the calendar next to saul – why is it that i seem to be the only one who knows that the sabbath was given to all of creation long before it was established for the israelites . . . God sanctified it during creation . . . .

    2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
    3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. gen 2:2-3

    saNG(k)təˌfī . . . . set apart as or declare holy; consecrate.

  9. In all these that nations speak about, in this dark days of our lives,Our actions our should speak louder than our words. The Devil can never over power God. the Love of God, Praise God from whom all Blessings flow. The beginning and the ending.Prayer, Love,and Faith.

  10. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Church of Rome under inspiration of Holy Spirit these engraved words forever in scripture, which cannot be broken! The Apostle Paul in the very beginning of his Epistle begins with his praise for the Church of Rome.

    1 The Church of Rome's faith was " spoken of throughout the whole world ". Rom.1:8



    3. Paul extended ' GRACE & PEACE FROM THE FATHER and Lord Jesus Christ to the Church of Rome . (vs 7)

    4. Paul thanked God for the Church of Rome  and calls them the beloved OF God!! (vs. 8)


    At NO time did the Christ, the Apostles or Apostolic Church EVER refer to the Church of Rome as a Harlot
