The Beginning of the Gospel: Paul, Philippi, and the Origins of Christianity | enadecyludef.cf
Praise ye the LORD. Failure to accept the above teaching of Scripture leads to the grievous errors that plagued the early church and are being revived today. This causes confusion both as to justification and sanctification: the means of being delivered from sin's future penalty, and from its present power in our lives. The Scripture makes it clear that neither of these involves keeping the Law. Justification comes as a free gift of God's grace through the finished work of Christ.

Nor can one be sanctified i. The New Testament presents to the Christian a much higher standard of moral and ethical conduct than that of the Mosaic Law. We are empowered to live this higher standard because Christ himself, by the Holy Spirit, has come to indwell our hearts and to live through us a supernatural life pleasing to God.
The glorious result is the death of self and a new life of faith Galatians I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. There are many serious consequences to the growing delusion that the church is Israel. Some of those who teach this lie like Greg Bahnsen are brilliant.
He has his doctorate in philosophy from USC. Yet the errors they make are so elementary as to betray a basic anti-Jewish sentiment, which they deny, but which seems to have blinded them to the obvious. Bahnsen, for example, quotes Psalm My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. This is the covenant the angel Gabriel reaffirmed in telling Mary that the One conceived in her of the Holy Spirit would reign on the throne of His father David—a covenant that Bahnsen perversely claims is no longer in force in spite of the very verse he misapplies, which declares that it is!
His life, death, burial, and resurrection accomplished this fulfillment and made possible the new covenant relationship with God whereby those in the church are "justified by faith without the deeds of law" Romans  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
It is excluded. By what law? Nay: but by the law of faith. Yes, of the Gentiles also:  Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. That same law was the barrier between Jew and Gentile and is still applicable to Jews, but for those now in the church, both Jews and Gentiles, it has been fulfilled and abolished in Christ. Those who teach that the church is Israel go on to claim that the church is heir to all of the promises given to Israel. He that scattered Israel will gather him.
Of particular relevance is the letter to the Colossians. While contemporary scholarship has traditionally been evenly divided on the issue of authorship, more recently a majority has favored its authenticity. So, while Plutarch could idealize the unity of Greek and barbarian, he continued to associate Greeks with what was good and barbarians with what was bad; while the Essenes and the Therapeutae advocated egalitarian living, they also excluded women from their communities; and while Diogenes of Oenoanda could imagine a future without slaves, he never claimed that slavery was wrong but only that in the future slaves would not be necessary.
One simply has to take into account the necessary qualifications and restrictions. In what relation toward each other are they united? Is it not now in the capacity of male and female more generically? Again, the drive in many of the sources toward the ideal of more equal or less unequal relations would seem to apply here also. It is arguable that she has lessened the tension few if anyone called for absolute equality , but it remains nonetheless.

Bryn Mawr Classical Review Library of New Testament Studies, ISBN The students deem Paul's argument strained and spurious, even as they acknowledge that their own sermons and divre Torah often draw on midrashim that are no less contrived. They condemn Paul's demotion of the Torah as a wholesale rejection of Judaism, even as they concede that their intellectual forbears in the Reform movement held a similar view of Jewish Law as historically important but nonetheless outmoded.
I have found role play the best tool for overcoming this initial pushback. Oddly enough, it's a technique Paul himself uses. At times in his letters he deploys the ancient rhetorical artifice called prosopopoeia , speech-in-character, by taking on and expressing a perspective that is not his own.
