New Covenant Taken?
Thu Aug 16, 2018 22:36

Is there any religious group who believes the New Covenant was taken from us, and we're now ruled over by the rules and laws God originally gave us? I've found loads of Progressive Christian groups meaning they have an idea that we have a whole new set of laws and regulations no one's ever heard of because of advances in modern science, but I can't seem to find one that believes God just rules over us by the Old Testament. I've read several self help books, but nothing compared to the Book of Proverbs, so I'm just sitting here confused and even a little amazed.

I look at Buddha and Enlightenment along with the timeline and say that could be what it means to be born again, or maybe that's what happened with Muhammad and why he started Islam? Plus Jesus said something rather interesting in Matthew 5:17-20... I'm just trying to find my religious fam, but it's looking like it really doesn't exist unfortunately.

              Well in the Arab telling, it was Ishmael who was nearly sacrificed, not Isaac ;-) And in some tellings, Isaac died and was very quickly resurrected by G-d. And in Kabbala there is "gilgul" aka... more

                Ok so I feel it that Arabs and Jews both have two different histories, but there's one thing that will the Islam religion, and it's the Book of Isaiah... Islam and Christianity are both prophesied as ... more
