On another board, speaking of the first Pentecost, Dave had this to say:
Today is the Sunday of Pentecost, the 50th day after Jesus' resurrection at Easter. Here is an excellent explanation of Pentecost, and its significance for Christians. Note the many correlations between the events of the Jews' liberation from Egypt and the beginning of their journey toward the promised land, and the Christians' liberation from the Law and the beginning of their journey toward personal fellowship with God.
Why Would God 'liberate anyone' from obediance to His Holy, Just and Good Law?
The Law (Ten Commandments) DEFINE sin!
1st John 3:4
To 'liberate' anyone from obedience to that Law, would be to condone SIN.
Why do 'Christians' so readily accept this obvious error?
For God to "okay Sin", and then to burn someone for doing it, would be a serious contradiction!
