    Are religious traditions and denominational doctrines pushing people further away from God's presence?

    YES! Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    Has the law been put aside? If so, when?

    Mat 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

    Why Do Christians Ignore some of Jesus' Teachings?

    10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

    Why Do Christians Ignore some of Jesus' Teachings?

    Seems not many want to obey all 10 of the Commandments. The Sabbath is a problem because it requires submission and may actually cost something. How many are willing to sacrifice a job or money to keep it?

    Sabbath

    God plainly says that the very first seventh day was a Sabbath... Exo 20:10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is...

    Sabbath

    Hmmm, Mar 2:27 And He said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Mar 2:28 Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath." Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; Rom 2:29 but he is a...

    What could be considered the "Saddest day of the year?"

    Very interesting and nicely done.

    Should a Christian tithe, what does the Bible say

    So, when God says this... Gen 26:5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws." And then this Mal 3:6 "For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday...

    Should a Christian tithe, what does the Bible say

    What Commandments have we from the beginning? 2Jn 1:5 And now I plead with you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning: that we love one another. 2Jn 1:6 This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the...

    The cultic origins of Annihilationism

    I don't believe this and apparently you hve not read very many of my posts. This is simply a parable, it is not reality. Why did Christ speak in parables? Mat 13:10 And the disciples came and said to Him, "Why do You speak to them in parables?" Mat 13:11 He answered and said to them...

    The cultic origins of Annihilationism

    Problem here is that the example used shows misery and suffering. Here is a technical point that drives a nail in the coffin of this being anything but a parable. NO ONE EVER GOES TO HEAVEN! Joh 3:13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who...

    Should a Christian tithe, what does the Bible say

    What that means is Christians are not under the condemnation or penalty of the Law if they have repented, been baptized and received the Holy Spirit. Act 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you...
