Zeke,You need to read my posts with a little more attention. I don't think you're understanding me at all. I am not lumping you in with the "Many" that I referred to as being Pharisaical. I said it before and I'll say it again: I know that you understand the Gospel. I've seen many of your posts and theological statements and they line up with scriptures beautifully. So, please, I know that you "get it". You cannot deny though that there are those here that adhere far too much to the Law of Moses as a means of gaining blessing, salvation, and favor from the Lord. This is simply not scriptural. This is also what the Pharisees believed. The Law was NEVER meant to be a "conduit" for receiving anything from the Lord. It was put in place to "frustrate" man and point him to our Savior. Again, I KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND THIS!!! I'm actually just conversing with you about it. Relax dude.Picky400
