Paul, Torah, Bestiality, Gay Marriage and the New Testament
It is clear to many that the Old Testament and particularly Torah was used by the early Christians to demonstrate the truth of the gospel. Some are not aware or choose to ignore this. They seek to impose Torah on others claiming that because the apostles used it to convince the Jews about Christ, it must be used today.
While some teach that the law ended at the cross, it did not. According to Matthew 5:17-18, the law would continue until all was fulfilled. Not till heaven and earth passed would one jot or tittle pass from the law.
The Apostles Kept the Law
Not only would the law continue, Jesus taught the Jews to follow it. He said the one who broke one of the commandments would be called the least in the kingdom of heaven.
On the other hand, the one who obeyed them, would be called great. For this reason, the apostles, Peter, Paul, James and John all kept the law. Evidence for their keeping the law is apparent at a careful reading of the Book of Acts.
The Teaching of the Holy Spirit
While it is true that the Apostles taught the law, it is also true that the Holy Spirit would guide the apostles into all truth. For this reason the Holy Spirit was given and gradually revealed truths to the apostles about the life in the New Covenant.
With the Holy Spirit came new revelation that taught truths in addition to the law or even contrary to Torah, (Jn. 16:13-15; Acts 10:13-16.
Even the apostles were hesitant to obey laws revealed by the Spirit directly from God. They resist on the basis of Torah until convinced.
The Jerusalem Council Sends Letters
The Jerusalem counsel came together to consider the question of whether the Gentiles should be circumcised after the custom of Moses and to keep the law. This was handled in three ways.
First, Peter had a personal experience with things considered unclean
Secondly, James brought the witnesses of the prophets to corroborate the story of Peter. What they concluded was a Torah-free mission to the Gentiles.
Paul Torah Bestiality and Homosexuality
How do we get to such subject from here? It is claimed that if one does not follow Torah and believes in the gospel, there is no way to oppose bestiality.
In the video, I cover this extensively showing what it means to be spoken about and to whom? Marriage and the conjugal union is addressed in 1 Corinthians 7.
