of the 613 mitzvoth, the temple laws were fulfilled in Christ but the dietary laws are still in force for Christians? I’ve never been very good at arguing with cultists and I had a long conversation the other day with a neo-Judaizer who argued for justification by grace and works, who was vehemently opposed to Christmas trees as idolatry, who made a passing comment about the Nicene Creed “wrecking” the NT. The views this person was advocating seemed to me to be exactly the reason for Colossians, Galatians, Hebrews, Mark 7:19 and Acts 10 and 11!
Some of the things this person said suggested she might be a Jehovah’s Witness (e.g., the legalism and the comment about the Nicene Creed) but do the JW’s teach the perpetual validity of the dietary laws? I know they appeal to them in defense of their rejection of transfusions. When I asked where she attended church she was evasive. This didn’t seem like the typical JW modus operandi. Is there some other sect or cult out there promulgating this sort of thing? I thought of the Boston/International Church of Christ but I’m uncertain whether this sort of legalism is their sort of legalism. She isn’t an Adventist is she? I know they still follow the dietary laws but do they reject the Nicene Creed?
