1  Theology / Bible Study / Re:there never was a law that could save on: January 25, 2004, 06:16:53 PM
only to bring in new laws under grace?

Just for an analogy ---

When a murderer is pardoned by the Governor, he is now a free man. But that doesn't mean he can go out an commit mayhem all over again and not pay the price.  In other words, there are still laws to obey, even when one is pardoned.

Yes, but God gave the laws to Israel, knowing full well they - as humans - would occassionally fall short in obedience.  

How is not eating pork or skunk  - in the OT or NT - bringing us closer to Christ?  How are the dietary laws our "schoolmaster"?

Petro

24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

25  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.


In 24, there is some kind of connection between "the law" and "faith". What is it?
4  Theology / Bible Study / there never was a law that could save on: January 23, 2004, 02:56:37 PM
Too many people say the OT saints kept all those laws and regulations in order to "get saved".

But Paul says that was never the case. He says, "...if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law" (Galatians 3:21).

Paul says there was never a law given that could save us.  That was true for the OT saints as well as the NT saints.
5  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Hitler: Nobel Peace Prize nominee on: January 03, 2004, 03:20:40 PM
Hitler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1938.  Leading the campaign for years was the renowned author, Gertrude Stein.
   As early as 1934, she told a reporter that Hitler should be awarded the Nobel peace prize:

 "I say that Hitler ought to have the peace prize, because he is removing all the elements of contest and of struggle from Germany. By driving out the Jews and the democratic and Left element, he is driving out everything that conduces to activity. That means peace ... By suppressing Jews ... he was ending struggle in Germany" (New York Times Magazine, May 6, 1934).
