    So please show me where He celebrated a Roman calendar holiday...because I can show you He followed the one given to His obedient people...
    Once again you show your inability to answer a simple question. I asked you to show us something and you can't do it so you try to turn it back on me. Shame on you.

    As to following the commandments of Jesus, lets look at what Jesus commanded:

    Matthew 22:37-40 (NIV)
    37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    That's it. Two. If you Google it you can find people who claim He gave 50 but if your look at them closely you will find that they are all based on the two commandment Jesus actually spoke.
    Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    What are my fruits today?

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    lol I answered you even offered to answer more from 3 lists of texts but you didnt choose...

    Here is another answer: “Think not that I have come to destroy the Law but to fulfill”...

    Now more than ever this is appropriate because His calendar has appointments we are to fulfill and meet and celebrate. Laws and rules of ceremony and form...all of which He came to fulfill those too...NOT to destroy...THINK NOT...so stop thinking that...He fulfilled all the appointments on His Calendar...all the festivals He celebrated and not one of them Roman...

    So He fulfilled the schedule on HIS calendar accordingly...see? NOT ABOLISHED...so they remain and were kept by His followers even at Pentecost the “birthday of the church”...although I am still with poor Stephen when he calls it the church in the wilderness...given a calander and times to meet...obligations to Yah to FULFILL each year you might say...

    As to following the commandments of Jesus, lets look at what Jesus commanded:

    Matthew 22:37-40 (NIV)
    37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    Hmmm...your Stockholm syndrome still allows for something left over for Him?

    When it says love Him with ALL it means ALL...give unto Caesar sure but dont celebrate so wantingly and certainly dont replace it with with what is Yah’s time and schedule for parties...

    He is at war with the world’s traditions and corruptions and HATES SIN...hates the idolatry corruption and counterfeiting of what HE provided first...

    Elsewhere He commentates on these two Laws...LOVE AS I HAVE LOVED YOU...and not one New Years party for roman scheduling was included in that love...in fact HE HATED when His OWN began to play footsie with other peoples and their traditions...HATED it when they compromised and played nice going along to get along...

    Yes LOVE God and each other...not with the love of a world compromised self obsessed but with the Love He loved Us first...radically different than the world’s love...

    And it comes with it’s own calendar...it’s like we were MADE for this love...He thought of everything...up to you to chose though...

    You are still trying to ride two horses unequally yoked and actually going opposite directions...

    Hmmm.... Still nothing regarding Jesus commanding Gentiles keep the Jewish calendar.

    Yup...so I guess the life He lived to exemplify “love one another AS I HAVE LOVED YOU” is not for you...the world loves that you celebrate with it its way not Him His way...

    Carry on...good luck riding two horses...going opposite directions
