Kyle says:
In fact, all of these tithes have been done away as part of the civil and ceremonial law of ancient Israel.

Jesus says (in Matthew 5:17-20):
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Kyle, there seems to be a little conflict in thought here . . . . . . .

Do we still have to circumcise? Eat kosher food? Perform the various sacrificial offerings in the form of animals and grains? Support a levitical priesthood? Make annual pilgrimage to Jerusalem?

Or were these things all done away in Christ Jesus, to whom they ultimately pointed?


I tell you, this man went down to his house justified.
