I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

New Testament Only Christians

To all you New Testament only Christians: if the Old Testament is no longer relevant, why is Abraham - with whom Yahweh made an everlasting unconditional covenant with (aka the Abrahamic Covenant) - mentioned 69 times in the New Testament? 

These so-called Christian bozos ignore the fact that there was no New Testament Scriptures in the early church period. The earliest Christians ONLY had the Old Testament. Paul the apostle quotes from the OT dozens of times in the New Testament. How does a New Testament Christian understand Paul's teaching if they don't believe the Old Testament is relative today? 

Further, what about the fulfillment of OT prophecy in the New Testament period?  Simply search the word fulfilled, referring to prophecy from the OT testament fulfilled in the NT period and later and you will find the word occurs 57 times in the New Testament. One such occurrence is Luke 4:21 "And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears," referring to Isaiah 61:2. Notice he leaves out "day of venegance," which will be fulfilled soon.

Additionally, there is the passage "All scripture is inspired by Yahweh and is profitable for doctrine, for conviction for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of Yahweh may be complete, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Tim. 3:16,17.   When Paul wrote that admonishment to Timothy, they only had the Old Testament. How could Timothy comply if he was to ignore the OT? How can one be thoroughly furnished unto all good works if one omits the doctrines found within the OT?

My guess is that many of these so-called Christians who only follow the NT believe the OT applies to the jews. While I have news for them: the OT applies to the Israelites, not the jews, as the jews are not the Israelites of the OT. If they actually read and studied their bibles closely they just might learn that important fact.  

Many more Christians believe that Yahweh did away with the Old Testament law. The reality is that the rituals involved in the sacrifices were what was done away with, not the entire law. Yahshua himself said: 17 “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17-19. 

The law was given ONLY to the Israelites and the 12 Tribes of the nation of Israel are the Caucasians - the Anglo-Saxon-Scandinavian-Celtic-Germanic and kindred peoples of the world. And it is only the Israelites who should be obeying them.Most of those laws are found within the Old Testament: laws regarding marriage, dietary laws, economic laws, legal principles, etc.

The law - minus the rituals - found in the Old Testament are indeed appropriate and applicable to all Israelites today. Any one who annuls one of the least of these commandments and teachers others to do the same, shall be the least in the kingdom of heaven. There are going to be quite a few called the least in the kingdom of heaven. Don't you be one of them.

Cain Was Not a Son of Adam

 Here's the evidence found in Scripture that Cain was not the son of Adam.

Jude 14 And Enoch, seventh from Adam, prophesied to these saying “Behold, the Prince has come with ten thousands of His saints 15 to execute judgment against all and to convict every soul for all of their impious deeds which they committed impiously and for all of the harsh things which the impious wrongdoers have spoken against Him!”

Jude seems to be referring to Enoch 1:9, which says in the Charles edition: “9. And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgement upon all, and to destroy all the ungodly: and to convict all flesh of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

Note that Jude calls Enoch “seventh from Adam”. In Charles' 1 Enoch, at chapter 60 verse 8 Enoch is also called the “seventh from Adam”. Adam himself does not count here, Enoch being seventh from Adam. Therefore, either Cain or Abel – but not both, must be included in this reckoning in order to arrive at 7 first-born males. There is no other way to reckon Enoch as “seventh from Adam” within the confines of Scripture. What can this refer to, except first-born males?

Seth, replacing the murdered Abel, therefore inherits the rights of the first-born from him. So we have: 1-Abel 2-Seth 3-Enos 4-Cainan 5-Mahalaleel 6-Jared 7-Enoch, and this also demonstrates the exclusion of Cain from his birth.
