Thats exactly what I have been saying all along. I just posted that to you. I am happy to see that you understand now. Thanks RA
??

You have been saying all along that the teachings of Christ pertaining to the two greatest commandments still apply today?

No you have not Grace. With all due respect you have tried a couple of times to make it seem like you believe the two greatest commandments apply to us but it would contradict your earlier statements about the teachings of Christ only being for the Jews and not for the Gentiles and you have never agreed that what he taught about them, such as we must obey them, applies to us.

So please do not condescend to me and say you are glad I am understand now.

I understand the differences in beliefs as far as who people see Jesus as or how his teaching apply. And that is fine. I am not going to pursue it further as it is clear at this point scripture is not going to be discussed and nothing positive is going to come from continuing in a circular loop. But for me, Christ and His teachings were not mostly for the Jews or just for the Jews, they were for the entire world and anybody that would listen and still apply today and must be followed and we are shown why we are told that. So I have no problem agreeing to disagree. But please don't say we are saying the same thing as we are not even close to saying the same thing. Thank you

Agreed 100%. I hope I'm not the same way but it seems adults are much harder to teach than kindergarten. Can you tell me why I may believe this to be so?

Bonjour mon ami, I do not know. Perhaps it is because as time passes we become set in our ways at least this is my opinion. What do you think? Shalom!

Be careful what you ask for! LOL

Just kidding, I appreciate the kind words and the encouragement to engage in discussion and I love talking to people whose intention going in is to learn and grow. It is mine as well as I said prior I have no loyalty to my beliefs so far as them being "my" beliefs. That means nothing to me if what I believe isn't right. I want to go wherever the truth leads.

IMO there is some confusion at times over the teachings of Christ and did they apply to Gentiles. I know you and i are in agreement on that but wanted to leave you with this is the Roman soldier would be considered a Gentile. Also note what he says about some of the subjects of the Kingdom.

The Faith of the Centurion

5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said,“my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”

7 Jesus said to him,“Shall I come and heal him?”

8 The centurion replied,“Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one,‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one,‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant,‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him,“Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

13 Then Jesus said to the centurion,“Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.

Recently,on the Alex Jones radio show,( Prisonplanet.com )he was discussing standing up to the takeover globalists in America with a guest who stated that he also was angry over what's happening. So,just as Jones started talking about 'resisting and fighting',the guy says 'Yeah,if they think they're going to control me.....I'll just...LEAVE America.' And I thought to myself 'WHAT A PUNK!' I'm sure that's NOT what Jones was expecting him to say!

That sounds like a lovely place and I hope to see Disney World one day. I agree with you, it is about Jesus and we should never forget the sacrifice He made for us, sorry I'm not saying much, I think I need sleep, it's very late or very early, depending how one looks at it.

John 4:3-42
3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

And as no doubt you posted this because it was in Samaria, just like in Luke when Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan.

Samaritans were not Jews. In fact there were a great deal of animosity between the groups and prejudice.And Yet Jesus taught there:

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
