Re: How To Get To Heaven When You Die
That was a great post up until the last line. Are you suggesting that former gentiles follow Paul's writings only? That the rest of the Gospel does not apply to them? What of Peter, John, Luke etc?
When we have faith and believe Jesus as our savior and repent we become heirs and children of God. After that the question of "Jew or Gentile" becomes a moot point because we become full heirs of the blessings and promises given to Israel. Christians are all of one body. There is no separation of Jewish Christian and Gentile Christian. There is only Christian. One God. One faith. One body of heirs.
Do you Remember Ephesians?
This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets
, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
