Can you quote the scriptures that support your undestanding?
We know YOU can quote the "scriptures" since you do it repeatedly day in and out.
You former Christian religious NUTS can quote it backwards in foreign tongue. LOL
Aren't hypocrites funny that way?

Have you considered that the "savior" the jews wanted was not a god but a warrior to lead them in battle against the Roman rulers?
I think (<) that's why the Jews killed Him. They were expecting someone to take revenge for them against the people who treated them badly. They were expecting someone to kick someone's ass. Instead they got a Savior that said: "love thine enemy". My opinion only, of course.

Jesus' accomplishments on Earth have finished, thus the old law was done away with.

In biblical language, how would Jesus describe those that claim to have these powers from him? To decieve many by suggesting that they have this power through faith to make people believe that God is with them, then would this be considered a heresy by the bible to do so?

You must remember the Apostles didn't have faith. They didn't need it. They walked, talked, touched and ate with Jesus. The people the Apostles came into contact with though or read their writings (the Bible) would have to have faith to believe what they were saying was true.

It was considered heresy, that's why most of the Apostles met cruel and very violent deaths, the same as Jesus.

I'm running short on time this morning, I'll expand on my thoughts later this afternoon.

You're welcome and thank you. I would like to think I'm not a raving lunatic or a moron. As I said before, I respect your opinion and your choices. I don't agree with it, but I don't have to. The discussion could remain mature, without the name calling, but I'm afraid that it won't.
I have to admit, I am impressed. I knew there were Christians who "get it". However, they seemed to be quite few and far in between. In respecting another's opinion and choices, you have displayed a tolerance for which I give you much respect.

Many religions..One God..Ephesians Chapter 4. Religion is to practice something over and over. Christianity is not merely a religion. It is a oneness with Christ. I in Him and He in I. Only one living God. None other besides Him. No where in the Bible does it say we are to respect other faiths or other gods or to tell our brothers and sisters that any religion you want to practice is ok. That would be considered whoring. God says to have no other gods before Him. He says He is a jealous God. If and I do say if you are a Christian you will tell people the truth. Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life. By no other name gived can man be saved. The Bible says "The prophets were until John". As for healing it plainly tells If there is any sick among you to call for the elders of the Church to come" ETC.(Just trying to hit on a little I have read here.) Of course God still works through His people. What other vessel would He use to carry out His work on Earth? The "gifts of the Spirit" have ceased, but Jesus said to ask anything in His name FAITH BELIEVING and it shall be given us. "Let God be True and every man a liar". If I call myself a Christian and cannot stand for God's truth I will throw down the sword and go to the house. It is a fight till death.

Thank you for your civility, yet my question remains unaddressed and unanswered. What verse(s) in the OT or NT does it SPECIFY that the Pentateuch, the Law of Moses in part or in whole, was repealed? Until that is clearly stated and defined, either ALL of those laws are still obligatory or ALL of them are rescinded.

If christians have faith enough, why can't they have the power to grow limbs on amputees? Faith appears to be subjective to only the believer since the results is not verifiable.

So faith has no accountablity, no testability, and cannot be scientifically verified, except for claims by the religious. Can you see how this places a dilemma on the person making a claim of faith to athiests.

With faith, you can move mountains. Apparently, mountains have a lot more faith in staying put.

As I said earlier, I was running short on time and couldn't give the verses you seek.

Hebrews - 8:7|
KJV wrote:
<quoted text>"For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second."
So that clearly says that a second covenant was to be made. But what about the first?(The Law of Moses)

Hebrews - 8:11|
KJV wrote:
<quoted text>"In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away."
So, the old covenant was old and was to be done away and a new and better covenant would come into existence. Jesus made that covenant with His blood on the Cross.

Hebrews, Chapter 8th contains more verses concerning the matter:

Jesus is talking about his Apostles here. Anyone that tells you God talks to him or that he hears God's voice is outright lying to you. The Apostles were endowed with these powers to prove to the people they came into contact with that what they were teaching was true. God doesn't act through people anymore, once the last Apostle died (John, if I recall correctly) that power passed from the Earth.
The "healers" you see on t.v.(Benny Hinn, for example) are full of garbage.
Yer a bit wrong on this....
But I understand if yer faith is not strong yet!
You do remember when Jesus was talking to His desciples about
the fig tree, He said "EVERYONE" that believed on Him,
would do ALL He done, and More!
I know you do not believe Jesus was a Liar!
Facts are this... God told me to look back in my life,
and see all the places where He saved my hide...
I did, and saw things that I didn't even realize, and
even was elected, I was proud of America voting in a Black guy...
He said for me to hold off on that pride, and the very next day
Obama started showing his True colors, and getting worse everyday!
God does speak to ya... If yer listening.... Listen!

Imagine that. God can decide a covenant can become obsolete, yet the NRA says it can't.
