You'll notice that even the Jewish believers who observe Torah don't push because it's a common belief that non Jews are not obligated to the Torah, much in line with Judaism.

What is the common here is what's called One Law Theology. This theology is birthed from non Jewish believers not from mainstream Messianic Judaism.
The likes of MistyToes will contend this but she doesn't realize that the opposition are non Jews and what happens is in context of scripture she'll universalize. There was a discussion on circumcision as an example. CIAN and myself were in line about the Abrahamic covenant which is still in effect and unconditional. Included in the unconditional Abrahamic covenant is the sign of circumcision for the descendants of Abraham>Isaac>Jacob. This DOESN'T pertain to non Jews. The Abrahamic covenant is APART from the Law of Moses. This has nothing to do with salvation as it pertains to physical blessings.
Again I'm not debating the Law of Moses or the Abrahamic covenant just hopefully providing some input from a Jewish believer.
What I'm saying is that the sign of the unconditional Abrahamic covenant and the Law of Moses(whether or not it's applicable today) doesn't pertain to non Jews to begin with.
