2 Peter 3:14-18 ❤ Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace. 15 And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, 16 as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. THERE ARE SOME THINGS IN THEM THAT ARE HARD TO UNDERSTAND, which the ignorant and unstable TWIST TO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION, AS THEY DO THE OTHER SCRIPTURES. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away WITH THE ERROR OF LAWLESS PEOPLE and lose your own stability. 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Peter wrote of twisting Paul's writing's and I have had certain Scriptures used as for lack of better words as excuses on why I don't have to keep the Shabbath, I can eat all food, and I have faith in Jesus so I am no longer under the law. I am listing some of those Scriptures and the context I believe Paul was expressing in his writings. Please examine, consider, and sharpen. My goal is to let my light shine, grow in my faith and knowledge. So do not hesitate to disagree but also sharpen me with Scripture.
Romans 14:5-12❤ One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.
Isn't this about Fasting during the week before the Shabbath?
Romans 14:14 ❤ I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean.
Isn't this about food scaficed to Idols?
1 Corinthians 5❤
Is this Scriptures just completely skipped over? Is it because the last verse Paul quotes from The Torah?
Galatians 3:23-25 ❤ BUT BEFORE FAITH CAME, we were kept under guard by the law, [a]KEPT FOR THE FAITH which would afterward be revealed. 24 Therefore the law was our [b]tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 BUT AFTER FAITH HAS COME, WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER A TUTOR.
The Law brought us to Christ, so what does Christ say about The Law?
Ephesians 2:8-9❤ For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Why is verse 10 always missing when this Scripture is used?
Colossians 2:16-17 ❤ So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a [a]festival or a NEW MOON OR SABBATHS, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the [b]SUBSTANCE IS OF CHRIST.
Doesn't this say Judge you for keeping the Sabbath? And who is Lord of the Sabbath? Which is a man made tradition Sun-day worship or The Sabbath?
1 Timothy 4:4❤ For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
What food was CREATED by God? Doesn't Scriptures tell us what food is?
