Excellent question.
The early Church contained both circumcised Jews and uncircumcised Gentiles. It is an obligation for circumcised to keep all of the book of the law. It is not an obligation for those uncircumcised to keep all of the book of the law.

Paul said that Gentile converts were not to be circumcised and circumcised Jews were not to give up their circumcision.

I Corinthians 7:18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.

You really need to stop being so biased and look for truth in the Word. If the Word said that I should be circumcised I would do it. If the Word said that I should keep the feast days I would do it. An honest look at scripture says that the feast days are not an obligation for a Gentile like me.

Vic how is it biased to believe only what the bible teaches?

Funny the word does say you need to be circumcised, it says you have to have circumcision of the heart now.(maybe thats the problem)

As for Paul let's look at a few things ok

Although some of his writings were difficult to understand, even by his contemporaries (2 peter 3:15-16) Paul's explicit statements and actions contradict any notion that he annulled or abolished observance of these Holy Days.

In,1 cor 11:1-2 for example, Paul told his followers, "Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ," and, "Keep the traditions as I delivered them to you.

If Paul's practice had not been to observe the feast days God had instituted, his comments to the Jews and gentiles in Corinth would have been meaningless. Clearly, evidence is lacking that Paul ever discouraged anyone from keeping the annual festivals; such a notion would have been unthinkable for him (Acts 24:12-14, 25:7-8, 28:17)

Paul and all the apostles taught a consistent message of the Christian's obligation to follow the example of Jesus Christ in all matters. The apostle John, who wrote near the close of the first century, summed up this message: "He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked" (1john 2:6)

To remain either circumcised or uncircumcised has nothing to do with the Law. It was an idiom, and it meant the exact same thing as the decision in Acts regarding gentiles. They did not need to go through the conversion rituals for Judaism. And the did not have to stop being Jews. There is now one Law for both Jew and Gentile. A new covenant that did not require rituals. Just belief.

To put it in a nutshell, circumcision of the heart is 'holiness.' It implies being cleansed from sin … "Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God" (2 Corinthians 7:1). As a consequence, the believer has the virtues of Christ, and aims to fulfil the text which says, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect" (Matthew 5:48).

The circumcised of heart have godly love. This is the fulfilment of the ROYAL LAW … "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself" (Luke 10:27). We are to cleave to the Lord and make Him our one desire, but it is not possible to love God if we detest others. This commandment should affect our every thought, word and deed.

There will always be those who think they will obtain the promise without dealing faithfully with God. These blasphemers persuade themselves that they are guiltless. Such a vain hope! Every child of Adam must come by the "strait gate" (Matthew 7:13), "take up his cross" (Matthew 16:24), and be "sanctified" (1 Corinthians 6:11) to win the prize.
True circumcision of heart requires that we "present" our bodies as a "living sacrifice" (Romans 12:1). Such a sacrifice must be continuously offered upon the flames of holy love.

Just like anyone else who isn't looking at the whole picture, bias is the result.

The types of Christ have met their fulfillment. Continuing them as an obligation diminishes the sacrifice of Jesus on our behalf. We are not pleasing God when we continue to think that we must do this or that ceremony to please Him.

Paul specifically pointed out that the Gentiles were not to be circumcised in the flesh or to keep the ordinances written by Moses in the Book of the Law.
Are you ignoring this fact?

Acts 21:25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

Feast days are not an obligation.
BTW Did you go to Jerusalem to observe Pentecost?

Will address the rest of your post in abit gotta run, However if you would like I will show you where only the Jews have to keep Pentecost in Jerusalem.. Deep subject but I will explain it to you if you are willing to accept it if the Bible teaches it.

Deal?

I ask you to go up and read what I post I have addressed what you say, I just hate repeating everything.

Act 15:21 “For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.”
Act 15:22 Then it seemed good to the emissaries and elders, with all the assembly, to send chosen men from among them to Antioch with Sha’ul and Barnaḇah: Yehuḏah being called Barsabba, and Sila, leading men among the brothers,



Why does this part always get left out? Those 4 laws were hardly inclusive. If that's all there is to living a holy life then why did He die? They expected the new believers to learn the commandments. These 4 laws were a starting point. A place where fellowship could occur. It's only after they were told the new believers would eventually learn the commandments did it "please the brethren".

This part is pretty clear. Not one jot or tittle. The least of the commandments is still expected to be kept.

Mat 5:17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures.
Mat 5:18 “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17.
Mat 5:19 “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.

Not one jot or tittle of what? It seems you missed which commandments Jesus was referring to. Here is the text where Jesus points to which commandments are essential to eternal life. The one thing lacking was love of God.

Matthew 19:16-19 And behold, one came and said unto Him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 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. He saith unto Him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

All Gods commandments are essential to eternal life. Jesus death only ended the sacrifical laws. The 2 greatest commandment hang ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.

Vic may I ask what is in the OT the law and prophets?

I just don't understand why you keep Gods Sabbath and ignore His laws.

The law of Moses is what was ended. Except that which was explicitly reinstated by Jesus in the NT.

The what is the two sentences preceeding:

Bzzzzzz. Wrong answer.

The Law never ended. Messiah says as much in the passages I posted above. What ended was the Mosaic Covenant. The Torah is now written on our hearts.

Jer 31:31 “See, the days are coming,” declares יהוה, “when I shall make a new covenant with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah1, Footnote: 1See Heb. 8:8-12, Heb. 10:16-17.
Jer 31:32 not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares יהוה.
Jer 31:33 “For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl after those days, declares יהוה: I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.

The Book of the Law was a witness because if you broke one of those laws you in fact broke one of the 10, which in turn is breaking one of the two great commandments. Messiah didn't take the Book of the Law out of the way in that He did away with it. He took it out of the way in that it could no longer condemn us. Our sins are forgiven. This does not in any way mean it isn't still the standard for righteous living. Paul calls it Holy, Righteous, Good, and Spirtiual. Only able to be properly kept with the Spirit He gave us, writing His Torah on our hearts so that we want to do them and apply them correctly.

If you like I can go into great detail and spend much time teaching you about God and His commands. As of right now you don't know the difference between Mosiac code and Gods commandments. If you are truely sincere and want the truth and are willing to learn then by all means I will put the effort into it. If you are not then by all means continue in your lawlessness.

May I ask you though are you without sin?

1john 3:4 sin is the transgression of the law......(No law no sin)

If you only keep the 10 commandments and reject the rest of Gods law I have to ask, why?

Here is a hint Jesus was the word of the OT, He was the creator, He gave all the commands. Al the Sabbaths are His, this is why He said He is Lord of the Sabbath! So in other words Jesus gave the Old cov. He also gave the New conv. Did Jesus ever not keep any of the commandments up to His death?

Or in other words.He was the One who gave the Holy Days to Israel (Lev. 23). He was the YHWH, or God of Israel (I Cor. 10:4), made flesh. He was the Word who was God, who became flesh (John 1:1-4, 14). He was only doing what He Himself told Israel to do centuries earlier.

I just don't understand why you keep Gods Sabbath and ignore His laws.
The Seventh day Sabbath was from creation and honors God for what he has done in creating and redeeming us.

The Ten commandments are the moral law. That was kept seperate from the Book of the Law written by Moses.
The Book of the Law had all the services and feast days in it. It was put in a pocket outside the ark. The Ten Commandments written by the finger of God were inside the ark.

Deuteronomy 31:26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.

Notice this text is referring to the handwritten law of Moses. These holy days are not now an obligation.

Colossians 2:14,16 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross....................... Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

I wouldn't waste my time with this conversation if I wasn't interested in truth. If there is something about the bible I don't know of I want to learn however it is my understanding that there is no difference between the Mosaic law otherwise known as the Law and God's commandments. They are all considered the same.

Make your case but please be brief about each point. I can't stand when folks post enough words to make up a 3,000 page book in one post! LOL

This says nothing of the Law. It is speaking of sin. Nothing more. And all these Sabbaths are a shadow of things to come. To come. Also, the "is" at the end was added. Leave it out and it makes much more sense.

It is hard to understand your denial. What does this sentence mean to you? What are the ordinances to you? Are they sin? What does it mean to blot out?

"Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us"

It’s surprising, but one of the main “proofs” used by some to “knock in the head” the Sabbath and Holy Days is Colossians 2:16. This “proof text,” when viewed in context, instead of proving that they were “done away” proves that a gentile church (at Colosse) actually kept the Holy Days!
Notice the key verses: “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Col. 2:16-17).
Paul does not here say, “Do not keep Holy Days or Sabbaths,” though that is what many people read into the text.
To start with, he warns them not to let a man judge them concerning the matters he then mentions. If they were not to let any man judge them in these matters, who was supposed to judge?
The answer is somewhat obscured by an added word in verse 17. This word, in the King James Version, is indicated by the italic type, meaning that there is no equivalent word in the Greek, but that the word was added by the translators in the hope that the passage would be more clear in English. In this case, though, it obscures the point.
Here is the specific phrase: “But the body is of Christ.” This should read “But the body of Christ.”
Here simply, is what Paul is saying in these two verses: “Don’t let any man judge you … but let the Body of Christ judge you.”

Deuteronomy 31:26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.

.
Vic you are confusing Mosaic code with Gods commands, Mosaic code isn't in question here.

So I ask again, On the 2 greatest commandments hang "ALL THE LAW AND PROPHETS"
Vic please tell me what is the law and prophets Jesus was referring to in the OT?

Also Vic do you think God only Taught Adam to keep the Sabbath at creation? God wrote all His laws on Adams heart! He walked with Adam every day in the garden teaching him. Why do you think cains offering was rejected by God?

So just don't pick one of Gods commands given at creation and reject His other laws.

It is hard to understand your denial. What does this sentence mean to you? What are the ordinances to you? Are they sin? What does it mean to blot out?

"Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us"
It's our sin. This is what He nailed to His stake. Along with the chirographon (written list of violations) that was nailed to His own stake. "King of the Jews". If He wanted to say the Torah was nailed to His cross, don't you think Paul would have just said Torah instead of chirographon trois dogmasin? The word Law isn't anywhere in the entire book. And His commandments certainly aren't dogma. John calls sin violation of the Torah. Paul calls it holy, righteous, good, and spiritual. Messiah says that not one jot or tittle will pass from it and that anyone who teaches against even the least of the commands will be least in the Kingdom. Does this sound like it's gone?

I'm still confused as to how people think YHWH gave Israel a bunch of commandments to keep, that He counted as sin against them if they didn't, when He intended to do away with them anyway? Do people think it was some kind of cruel joke?

Types no longer are required since the reality has arrived 2000 years ago. Holy days and sabbaths are include in what was taken away.

Fulfillment of the New Covenant over the Old Covenant made the Old Covenant Obsolete.

Not judging according to Holy days, sabbaths, and meat and drink, means that these things have been done away with in the New Covenant.

God did not make a bunch of rules and rituals without meaning. What is the meaning of Pentecost?

First fruits offering?

What does this mean concerning the Church?

Colossians 2:14,16 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross....................... Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
This passage tells us not to let man judge us in keeping these days. Only the Body of Messiah. It infers we will be keeping them. In context it's about these former non believers not letting the world judge them for keeping them, in contrast to the pagan festivals, etc. I don't see how this supports what you're saying.

Awesome question Vic....actually each and everyone of the Holy Days pics Gods plan for mankind, starting at Passover.

Pentecost pics Jesus coming and gathering His church at the first resurrection.

I urge you to download the pdf of this book. It explains Gods Holy Days and there meaning better than any other book I have found.
