doctrinal study series designed to redirect our
attention towards a fundamental relationship with the Lord Yeshua.
only one Gospel whose power and gracious freedom
overcomes sin and death throughout the world. But if the
Gospel's freedom is suppressed for the sake of upholding
the Law (Torah), then those that put Torah above the
Gospel must abandon the contradictory elements of their
theology and submit their Torah observance to New
Covenant principles. This does not mandate the
banning of Torah observance; however, it does restrict
Torah observance to that of "non-obligatory"
compliance in Messianic Jewish worship and daily practice.
There are now several major theological trends that counter the truth of the
gospel, that need to be recognized and opposed. The task of this study is
one of taking a critical look at these newly accepted beliefs by comparing
them to the apostles writings. Some Messianic Jewish theologians have
faulted the apostle Paul for the "Pauline Gospels" claiming it to be
anti-Semitic. Most anti-Pauline Messianic Jewish theologians have avoided
taking an anti-Pauline stand and have re-invented Paul and his writings as
that of "Torah observant Rav Shaul, all accepting of modern Messianic
Jewish thought." Such a re-invention is both
doctrinally unsound and historically incorrect. We should
question both seriously by first concentrating on the
teachings in the epistles to the Hebrews, Romans and
Galatians. Above all the other apostles, Paul was given
the divine task of proclaiming the principles of the New
Covenant to Jew and Gentile believer alike. Let us
endeavor to take His new revelation to heart.
Are you tired of all those
Messianic social networks that are more focused on Torah
observance than spreading the true gospel of grace? We
