There are also Christian’s who still did things by law; even after Christ who were saved by the heart.
Even when some Pharisees adapted to Christianity they wanted righteousness to be the result of observing Judaistic laws and customs, notably circumcision.Well, for people that just want to generalize I guess details don't matter.
I hope you dont generalize too often different groups of people, it's always good to see the goodness of God in all of his creation.
I hope I get to discuss with you again, you seem very smart and bright, it was a pleasure, God bless you on your spirtual journey. I have learnt a lot from you, thank you.
