Imperfect Law?

This blog was inspired by an article written by John Pringle. I will post a link to his article at the end of this blog. I want to take one point from his article and expound on it.

As Mr. Pringle points out that the Christian book of Hebrews is full of falsehoods and is a creation of man and not inspired by the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

In this blog we will look at part of one verse and delve into its false statement.

Heb 7:12

For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

Because of the overall rejection of the Torah by Christianity they have no true knowledge of what it says or its intent for they even reject the keepers of the Torah inscribing their own interpretation to the Hebrew Scriptures.

When a Christian reads, “there is made of necessity a change of the Law.” Because a Christian operates by blind faith only they lack the knowledge of God to fend off falsehood. Therefore they allow writings from people in whom they do not know to rule their lives. It is a known fact that they do not know who wrote the book of Hebrews, they suspect Paul but no one knows for sure.

If they had the knowledge of the Torah then they would have seen that the book of Hebrews is a heretical work and rejected it. But they have clung to falsehood over the Truth.

The author of Hebrews says that the Law has to be changed, this one statement is heretical and shows that he does not know the One true God of Israel but his belief is in a pagan imperfect god that makes mistakes and thus has to change his words to fit man’s situation.

The God of Israel says this about Himself,

Malachi 3:6

For I God change not;

Those that are keepers of the Torah know and teach that the Torah is like a window that lets one look into Who and What God is and is all about; the Torah/Law is the revelation of God.

To change the Law is akin to saying God changed or is in need of change, and that is not what He says about Himself.

God Himself also WARNS Israel to never change one word of His word.

Deut. 4:2

You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor shall you subtract from it, to observe the commandments of Hashem your God, that I command you.

Israel is instructed not to add or subtract from the Torah, to make a change that the author of Hebrew says is in strict violation of this commandment – the word ‘observe’ in the above passage comes from the Hebrew word, ‘shomer’ and is often used in the phrase, ‘shomer mitzvos’ This means to be one who, guards, keeps, and observes the commandments/Law.

Israel is a guardian of the Law

Thus we know from strict Jewish law that the writer of Hebrew was a Jew who was uneducated, an apostate or a non-Jew who does not know Jewish Law. It is clear that the statement in Hebrews was not made by one who was a true guardian of the Law.

King David in who spent every day in meditation of the Torah teaches us,

Psalm 19:8

The law/Torah of HaShem is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of HaShem is sure, making wise the simple.

The Torah is perfect – perfections need no change – Torah brings about change in the ones who observes it.

The Law is not in need of change, the human keepers are the ones that need changing. The Perfect Law will bring about proper change in man. But because man continues to reject God they want to change His Law to fit their agenda.

The perfect Law mirrors a Perfect God

An imperfect law that needs changing mirrors an imperfect god.

Again this statements made in the book of Hebrews by its author is one who is trying to combine the ideologies behind Greek/Roman mythologies and pagan god worship with those of the true Hebrew Scriptures in creating a new religion that is a blend.

The fact that a perfect law needs not changing but those in whom the law was written needs changing is proven through the history of Israel that is given to us in the Torah.

We are shown at first the giving of the perfect Law – from the get go we see that Israel has its struggles and from time to time she falls in the observance of the Perfect Law – in all situations that we find Israel falling, God, NOWHERE, changes His Law – it remains like a stone, steadfast, unmovable, unchangeable as the One Who gave it.

Only when the gentile nations who have taken the Hebrew Scriptures unto themselves have sought to make changes, by mistranslating it and misinterpreting it and, have added their version which is in opposition to the Perfect Law.
