[quote:2vkcm0x0]So what does that matter, oh wise one? He doesn’t specify Jewish laws or any other type, Scriptures say many times that by observing the law saves no one. Or do we rip out Galations 2:16?

Gal 2:16 – [b:2vkcm0x0][color=darkred:2vkcm0x0]Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, [u:2vkcm0x0]that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified[/u:2vkcm0x0].[/color:2vkcm0x0][/b:2vkcm0x0][/quote:2vkcm0x0]
Ron, it’s basic biblical scholarship that Paul was referrring to THE one and only Law of the time. Even the Galatians quote is still referring to the Mosaic Law. It’s not just some random law or all laws in all lands at all times.

There were specific things the writers of the books of the Bible were addressing to the communities to which they wrote. Whether they had to obey the Mosaic Law or not was still an issue in these new Christian communities in which many still considered themselves Jews actually.
