(What Does The Bible Teach About Preachers?)
Part 92: Blasphemy of Those Practice Aspects of the Old Ceremonial Laws
(Titus 1: 15-16)
Peace be unto you. They still come telling things on God and the Bible. Peace be unto those than can distinguish between what God has instructed us to do and the wishes and desires of the impure man-made laws.

The unbelievers are noted in having an impure heart. When your heart is of God you will move in righteousness. However no one is free from sin, trials and tribulations. But the righteous bear good fruit and those that also can see God can see their righteousness. Many were blind as Noah preached righteousness and repentance, so are many blind today.
Titus 1: 15: “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”
We will also look to the scriptures to apply this message to the time in which we now live? Here the Judaizers continued their agitation. The law had various regulations regarding the eating of the flesh of animals. However these laws had nothing to do with the impurity of the meat itself. (See Romans 14: 14).
Therefore the uncleanness was only ceremonial and part of the law. But the law had been canceled, thus there was no reason to continue any practice whereby any meat was declared unclean. The greatest lesson here for the contemporary church is that it is ungodly to declare any aspect of the old ceremonial laws as a commandment by God during the time in which we now live which is the time of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
Therefore preachers should teach the Truth about Giving as revealed I the New Testament by the Apostle Paul and stop telling lies on God. It is a lie that God still commands a tithe to a nonexistent Priesthood that Jesus the Christ came to replace. Brethren if you have a tithe in your heart and mind you DENY CHRIST AND THIS IS A VERY BIG SIN AND WILL DENY YOUR ENTRANCE TO HEAVEN.
Turn with us now to Luke 11:38-39 and the several verses that follows. Here Jesus teaches about love. For the record we are still under the Old Law during the time of the Gospels. But Christ as the Son of God, the Messiah and savior of humankind teaches about the transition of the Law of works to a faith, heart journey based on love of God the Father and Christ Jesus.
Luke 11: 39: “And the Lord said unto him, now do ye Pharisees make clear the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.”
Jesus did not forsake the ordinary act of hygiene before coming to the table. However He did forgo a ritual the Jews practiced that was a mere formality. Jesus knew the mind of the Pharisees as He knew the mind of the contemporary false teachers. They then and now profess a heart of evil, material exploitation and not love.
Can you truly love God and not try to follow His Laws?
Titus 2: 16: “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
The writer reveals that the Judaizers were busy disturbing the churches. They claimed they were only moving on their great love of God and the knowledge of His Law.
For the record I can hear someone say the FreedomJournal is making a lot of noise. They say most church leaders/churches etc. Do no follow God’s Laws. How do w know if they follow God are not? How can we know if the Judaizers were wrong?
Religious frauds pose a contradiction to what they often preach in their personal lives. They are in rebellion to God’s Laws. Their work is useless or reprobate. (Also see I Timothy 5: 8; II Timothy 3: 5, 8).
