"RE:  Are WE Still under the commands of the levitical law"

Hello, John and Doves,
It is interesting to observe that not only has America rejected Jesus as Lord and Savior,
America stands to be judged for not complying with Leviticus, chapter 19.
Moreover, America, in flat refusing to teach the Bible as a nifty Grade School primer, has steadfastly
ignored chapters like Jeremiah 18 and Jeremiah 26.
When will full judgment fall?  It will fall when we who prevent its falling are taken out of the way.
For more details, read Genesis, chapter 18.  Then read Genesis, chapter 19.
The town called, Zoar [smallness], was originally called, Bela [within].
When we are taken within the protection of the Groom at the event of the Rapture, then it will be
curtains for America, unless she immediately repents of her immorality.
For it is written,
7    "The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it,
8    "if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it."
                                                                                                    Jeremiah 18:7-8
May America the Beautiful return to her first love!
In HaShem,
Mike C.

"Are WE Still under the commands of the levitical law ?"

No of course not…….. The commands of Moses which put heavy burdens on GOD’s people are entirely lifted after Calvary……. Paul emphasized this repeatedly……. All of the law was nailed to the Cross \:)/ ……..
All 600 of the laws are repealed in the Love of Jesus……. Now this does NOT mean that since Grace abounds, we should sin more so that grace will even more abound :bang …..
Jesus said that the law was fulfilled by the commands to love one another, He put no burdens on Man.
The old things/burdens are passed away, Grace, forgiveness and eternal life are ours for the asking……..

So why then do some pastors still preach from the old testament law as if it still applies to the church today?
Some churches have certain elements of the law as official doctrines of the church.
In my mind, only Salvation by grace through faith, communion, and Baptism after salvation (not for salvation) really qualify as doctrines/ordinances of the Church …….

Why do church members shun , refuse to forgive certain types of sin while other sin which is every bit as bad in GOD’s eyes ? Refusing to forgive, stealing, lying is listed right along with homosexually as sins GOD abhors.

Some of my friends have openly said they would refuse to accept a former homosexual as a fellow believer. But they do accept a former thief, drug/alcohol addict or adulterer. GOD does not remember my sins or yours, so how can we condemn others whose sins are also covered by the Blood of Christ?
