Why don't need Jewish Christians need to follow Torah when the Torah itself says many commandments are "forever" or "everlasting"?
Hebrews 9:22 says "Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins." - I was watching a rabbi, Tovia Singer, and said Hebrews 9:22 was in error because the Bible teaches that contrition forgives sins (Psalm 51:16-19) as well as charity (Proverbs 11:4, 21:3, Daniel 4:24). So what exactly did Paul mean by that?
外围体育投注Building on question number two there is a second critique from the rabbi. In Hebrew 10:5 Jesus is supposed to have said "Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You prepared for me." in a quotation of Psalm 40:6 - but the Psalm doesn't say that at all. What's the deal there?
外围体育投注Note: I have decided to not name or identify this person so that I may not bring further damage to their identity and reputation.
This person is one of the greatest people in my life. They are very loving, caring, supportive and comforting towards me throughout my life.
When it comes to being a Christian, they are lukewarm. Since it is my duty to preach and teach as a Christian and I'm afraid of being ashamed of Christ and His Words, I ask for a lot of advices regarding my preaching and teaching to them on Reddit.
Since I'm exposing this person to Reddit too much without their consent, I believe I'm lying, deceiving them, and secretly bringing a lot of damage to them.
I'm super afraid to reveal this to the person because I might bring distress or a heart attack to them since they're slightly old, I'm afraid of chastisement, and I may bring some drama between us. Should I? Can I just ask for forgiveness from God, ask for a punishment/chastisement instead, slyly ask for forgiveness from them, delete/edit the posts that talk about them, and move on? Should I leave everything to God and pray for them or should I stop being afraid and start preaching and teaching to them?
外围体育投注Edit: Good news! I told the truth to the person and they easily forgave me, mildly chastised me and talked to me. I'm so relieved. Thanks for reading. God bless.
外围体育投注I am parenting/teaching a 12th grader who is struggling with her faith. Can you please help me to answer these questions fully and lovingly?
外围体育投注How do you refute Deism? What evidence do we have (or revelation) that God not only created us, but continues to keep us in existence by an act of His will? She accepts the cosmological argument for God’s existence, but has serious reasons to doubt His providence.
外围体育投注She asks why we owe God or our parents anything since we did not ask for our existence. (She also struggles with depression which clouds her appreciation. We do generally have a very good relationship and she is usually very grateful for what we do for her. This was not a personal attack, just an honest question.)
