I recently heard a couple of anti-missionary "podcast hosts" (who spend most of their time "debunking Jesus") discussing the Apostle Paul with some Christian professor. NONE of them had any real clue about Paul, and were making all kinds of ridiculous statements including this one: “Yes, we agree, Paul consistently taught that Gentiles don’t have to bother with Torah!”
REALLY, people? Then why do we see passages such as these throughout Paul's writings?
Acts 28: 23 "From morning till evening the Apostle Paul explained and declared the Kingdom of God and tried to convince people about Yeshua from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets."
Acts 24: 14. But this indeed I (Paul) acknowledge, that in that same doctrine of which they speak, I do serve the Elohim of my fathers, believing all the things written in Torah and in the prophets.
Acts 15: 19 "Therefore, my opinion is that we should not put obstacles in the way of the Goyim who are turning to God. 20 Instead, we should write them a letter telling them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from fornication, from what is strangled and from blood. 21 For from the earliest times, Moshe has had in every city those who proclaim him, with his words being read in the synagogues every Shabbat."
Note verse 19 which says: "Therefore, my opinion is that we should not put obstacles in the way of the Goyim who are turning to God!" Read in context Acts 15 plainly states that the expectation of the non-Jewish converts was that they would learn Moshe (Torah) as they grew in their relationship with Mashiyach and his people. Read in context, Acts 15:20-21 shows there is one Torah for Israel and the Gentile who dwells with her - yet, many try to use it as "proof" that Christians don't have to keep Torah. That is because they don't realize that Acts 15 is referring to man-made laws and not the Torah itself....
Why would God have different rules for His natural and adopted children? Are only “the Jews” expected to be holy? There were 12 tribes (not just “the Jews”) standing at the foot of Mt. Sinai…12 tribes AND the pagan Gentiles who had followed Moshe out of Egypt! YHWH made it clear FOUR TIMES IN A ROW in Numbers 15:13-16, that ALL who accept Him were to do exactly as HIS people do. And His people have always obeyed His Divine Instructions! (For more, please see Should Gentiles be Torah Observant?)
