Well, here's the rub, Mr PICJAG101G...Paul did contradict Jesus/Yeshua and the Apostle John.GINOLJC, tot All,
First thanks fopr the reply, second, ERROR, for in your OP, we see where you made your mistakes. for the Law is not Made for a RIGHTIOUS Man. the law is alway pointing out your sin. for by it is the KNOWLEDGE of Sin, but what you don't want to accept of the NEW TESTAMENT is this, Romans 3:20 "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin."
Jesus said he didn't come except to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. He showed mercy to the Gentiles but wasn't sent for us.
When Jesus sent out the Apostles (Matthew 20:5) he told them not to go to the Gentiles.
On the other hand, we know that Gentiles would be accepted into Jesus's fold because he, himself said so.
And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 22:9 Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’
Now the harder news...
both Jesus and John said the Law is not done away with.
Jesus said that he did not come to destroy the Law or the prophets and the Law will stand until heaven and earth pass away. He said that whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Is that you?)
John said "For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome." (1 John 5:3)
"And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says "I know him" but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected." (1 John 2:3-6)
Jesus also railed against the Pharisees and called them broods of vipers and whitewashed tombs.
The Jews broke their covenant.
The Temple was destroyed.
So we can't obey all the Law the way God told us to. We're living in a period of grace, waiting for our Messiah to return and put the new covenant into full force.
