Indeed, throughout the Gospels we clearly see Jesus affirming the proper application of the Oral Torah; that is, where it does not contradict or attempt to supplant the Written Torah. This is especially clear in many of Jesus’ dialogues with the Pharisees in response to His works done on the Sabbath.
Therefore, being that Exodus 12:24 is a Permanent Law – a Perpetual Command, if Jesus doesn’t fulfill it – if it is not part of His body of work according this His statement in Matthew 5:17, that He came not to abolish the law, but to fulfill it, then He not the Messiah or Lord; rather, He is a liar, a lunatic, and a sadist.

So the same day that Cecil the Lion Died 120,00 babies were murder through abortion, but no one is crying; there’s not hashtags, and it didn’t make the news. WAKE UP PEOPLE! YOU ARE LOST! FORM YOUR CONSCIENCE! #cecilthelion #PPSellBabyParts
Black communities are falling apart, and organizations who claim to help are making things worse. Only the Catholic Church has what it will take to heal and unity the Black disunity.
Carey was raised in a strict Jehovah Witness (Watch Tower Society) home and was discouraged from questioning what he saw was contradictions in his family’s faith.
