  1. It seems every side can see the faults of their opponents, yet never address their own.
    Very few of Christianity has rejected their pagan customs.
    Then when I look at the Messanic view, 1st they’re miles apart from being united.
    When I looked into their view, I find it loaded Pharisee customs valued above the scripture.
    One writer says the Torah is still Valid. He never answers the oblivious missing
    sacrifices and Temple laws.
    I can see the 10 Commandments as being the Royal Law from the way it was
    given in a unforgettable display.
    The rest Moses wrote in a book and placed on side of the ark.
    I can see there is good laws mixed with laws applying to Priests. I have yet to see anyone address this obliviouscounterdiction wihtout stickiing their foot in their mouth.

    1. Sorry for the confusion. This article is just a summary into the category. Within the category there are several articles on various holidays. You can access them through “All Teachings” – “Holidays”. I try to follow the feast days God specified in the scriptures. However, there are other holidays that are Jewish specific, man-made I should say, that I don’t follow. My goal is to find God’s truth, not man’s truth.

      Yes, every group has their own views on things. It doesn’t matter what religion you belong to. That’s why I encourage people to read and study the scriptures for themselves. This way they will know if something lines up or not. I believe the Ten Commandments should be followed. However, like you pointed out, some rules are for the priests and their temple duties. These cannot be followed without a temple. Yet still, it is good to know why these things were put in place. Some are a foreshadow of things that have come and will come. You can read more about the Ten Commandments here: This page will lead you to other articles.

      I hope this clears up any misunderstandings.
