Longhairs and Weirdy Beardies vs. the Legalists

I am pleased to announce the release of a new three-part series entitled "Longhairs and Weirdy Beardies vs. the Legalists".

This series discusses the debate regarding whether or not it is permissible for men to have long hair and sport beards. It compares the Apostle Paul's comment with the rest of the Scriptures in order to arrive at its conclusion, and also warns of the dangers of legalism. Are you a legalist, or have you been liberated by Jesus Christ?

To read this new series, please click on any blue full title link that you see in this message.

As is my custom, below is a synopsis of each of the three parts.

    I would like to know which post would be right for the people who refuse to accept the Name, JESUS CHRIST, and insist on only using the Name, Yeshua Messiah.....these are people who are pro jewish and believe that those who believe in CHRIST JESUS are not on the right path......because they say that those who use the Word "LORD" are pagan.... Do you have an article that addresses this subject?

      Hello Grace. Thanks for your comment. Grace, the truth of the matter is that you are wasting your time even trying to convince such people. Trust me; you can't win with the legalists. They will believe whatever they want to believe. You can talk to them until you are blue in the face, and it won't make a bit of difference.

      The fact of the matter -- as they no doubt already know -- is that they are straining at a gnat, and swallowing a camel. Debating over whether to use Jesus Christ or Yeshua Messiah is like arguing over whether to use Robert or Roberto. It is the SAME name, except in two different languages.

      The name "Jesus" is the English transliteration of the Greek "Iesous". In turn, "Iesous" is the New Testament Greek transliteration of the Hebrew "Yehowshuwa". All three of them mean "Jehovah -- or YHWH if you prefer -- is salvation". In fact, "Yehowshuwa" is also translated into English as Joshua or Jehoshua as well.

      Along the same lines, the word "Christ" is the English transliteration of the Greek "Christos". This word means "anointed". So basically, Jesus Christ really means "Jesus the Anointed One", because He was anointed with Spirit of His Father without measure.

      In the Old Testament, the word "messiah" is used instead. It is derived from the Hebrew "mashiyach", or "moshiach" or "mashiach". Different people spell it different ways. Either way, this Hebrew word likewise means "anointed".

      So what we see then, is that regardless of whether we use the Hebrew "Yeshua Messiah", or the Greek "Iesous Christos", or the English Jesus Christ, it all means the very same thing, and is referring to the very same person.

      That is why the argument and the debate is so ridiculous and time-wasting in my view.

      You can share all of the above with your legalistic friends, but trust me; they won't budge an inch; or else they will tell you that you are wrong, just because of their pride, or because they want to prove how much they love the Jews and Israel, or whatever other argument they throw at you.

      Personally, I am totally fed up with such people, and I keep them at arms length on my timeline, if I even let them in the door at all. If they start up with their legalism, they are history.

      I don't know if you have read it yet, but if not, I encourage you to read the following series. It will explain to you exactly what I think of all of this nonsense:
