Destroying the Law

If we seek to understand the true intent of the law, and have it do to us what it is primarily supposed to do (show us our sin), we must sit at the feet of Rabbi Yeshua who came, not to destroy (misinterpret) the Torah, but to fulfill (correctly interpret) it.

These are the types of polarizing questions that I love. Not that I enjoy polarization in general. Surely there are better things to do with ones time. But if you're in the corner, reporting that you're in the corner is hardly wrong. If theology is truly going to be practical, then occasionally our practices will be different. Today's questions most certainly will highlight some of the distinct features of my theology and its application to civil legislation and moral integrity.
