It has been ages since I was on the WCG Alumni group. It used to be a lively place with the legalists wielding their KJV /Moffet Bibles against all of us heathens who were no longer sabbath keepers and who ate pork and shrimp.
They love to throw scriptures and spittle around as proof that Sabbath keeping, clean and unclean meats and holy days are still required.
Checking it out tonight there was a comment with the following quote that the legalistic Armstrongites still refuse to answer to this day:
When exactly is sundown in Heaven? If you think Jesus is still observing the Sabbath from Heaven, please tell us what time zone He is in? Would that be GMT? Or EDT? Or maybe you should set your watch for Jerusalem time?
Your problem is that you believe in the Gospel of Jesus++. You can't just accept the fact that you don't need to add anything to His salvation at the Cross. You have to add the O.C. rules of "Touch not, taste not, handle not!" thinking you are earning "legal brownie points" with your Maker. But He doesn't care about your brownie point scoring system. Because all your efforts at keeping the law are as filthy rags to Him.Let that sink in before you decide when your "day" starts and you go off on yet another wild-assed tangent of biblioalatry, dressing yourself in those filthy rags of self righteousness and your idea of sun-up.Jesus said that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. You dare not add anything as a Pharisee to that, with all your O.C. laws and self-righteous fly swattings.
I love it!
