    I don't know if @gromit gave you an explanation, but it reminds me of this dialogue from the movie, Before Sunrise

    The threat to love is not hate, but fear.

    The threat to spirituality is not reason, but organised religion.

Jesus himself said He did not come to replace the Law, but finish it. Paul never met Jesus while He was alive. Paul made the decision to go easy on the Gentiles. Jesus Himself never said that. In fact, His whole mission was to the 'lost sheep of Israel', Jews who had fallen away from God.

    Christian conceptualists take Christianity completely out of context. It is not advantageous for us to forego our Jewish roots. And whether you are Jewish by DNA or not, if you believe in the One God, and in Jesus' sacrifice for us, you are one of His Chosen Ones.
    I've been confused with your focus on "the law" which is interesting but not something I've seen before. Now I understand. Are your beliefs aligned with some specific sect of Christianity or is it a personal interpretation you've laid out?

For ask now...from one end of heaven to the other: Has there ever been anything like this great thing, or has anything like it been heard?... From heaven He caused you to hear His voice in order to teach you...because He loved your forefathers....to drive away before you nations that are greater and mightier than you..." (Deut. 4:30-40 ish)

    There are those who call themselves 'Messianic Jews'. They believe in the Law but also the divinity of Jesus. I have been to one of their weddings. I dislike how they use the Hebrew so much in their service. Granted, they translate for the ignorant, but still. I don't really think it's necessary to cling to old languages that are not ours, nor old places, like Jerusalem. There really is nothing in the Law that says we must, and actually, there are things in the Bible about speaking clearly so everyone can understand the Word of God.

    I am more of a Jewish-Christian? I like the chronology of that. It makes more sense to me, as the Hebrew roots came first and should ground us and anchor us into God's Word; then Jesus came to flesh out our tree and make us thrive. If we just cling to Jesus, we really don't have as firm a foundation as we could/would have with our deep roots, that do exist! And if we just cling to our Hebrew roots, our tree will be dry and fruitless, without Jesus' teachings and sacrifice.

    God's Holy Spirit then comes to live in our beautiful tree, like birds nesting within it. And it provides shade and protection for many.

    That is the Trinity. Thanks for asking.

    We don't need proselytizing on Typology Central, we need to discuss the psychology of religion.

    Your post is really just a low degree of religious persecution. Maybe you would like going to one of the countries which engages in active physical persecution of Christians. It kind of reminds me of a book I read long ago of someone who was assigned to break up meetings of Christians. Eventually, he became ashamed of himself and became a Christian, too, though. There is a difference between disagreeing with someone and insulting her. You are guilty of the latter in this case. Since it has been done to one of my friends, it isn't something I take lightly.
