You would not know about the former without the latter.

People need to read carefully what it is written.

The ECLA, Orthodox Lutherism and other biblical churches are quite separate from the other listed organizations. Those “others” are very similar and model their theology after a progressive thought. Their teachings are built upon false, watered down theology that bears very little to what the Scripture teaches.

Ditto the first ones you mentioned. They are not separate at all, just variations.

The idea that we should emulate and maintain a culture and morality that dates from 4000+ years ago is ridiculous. Even you do not believe that since you do not follow Leviticus, etc. Jesus corrected and rejected the barbaric memes and rules of His era but you would pretend that we are supposed to accept them as absolute, unchanging requirements of God. Absurd.

Wrong.

“For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” — Matthew 5:18-19


“It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid.” (Luke 16:17)


“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.” (Matthew 5:17)


“Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law” (John7:19)

Well, thank you finally being honest about your beliefs. However, You told falsehoods about everything else. Personally, I really think you are incapable writing a few paragraphs that was totally honest and truthful. Think about that. That is pretty messed up.

But what is the value of knowing the former if you insist on following the latter??? The importance of knowing Jesus is to follow Him and his instructions to His disciples, NOT to continue to follow the primitive and barbaric nonsense in the book that led us to Jesus. If you do not love God and each other every day and repent when you don't, you are NOT following Jesus, period.

Usually church to church based on who are closer to God and not denominational , where people can decide is if there is a large Sunday school as the kids will rebel against error or sleepy churches

Wonderful. I enjoy seeing those ignorant of the subject spreading their ignorance around, making their ignorance more obvious.
