Things wrong with this by paragraph:
The Laws of God pertaining to His standard of righteousness and holiness are not just some set of rules to be followed. Granted obedience is credited to people as righteousness but this is only in response to their faith as stated in Hebrews 11. Hebrews also states that the blood of bulls and goats was never to take away sins in Hebrews 10:4 so the claim that that is how adam and eve got into heaven is also wrong. They put their faith in the coming Savior just like anyone else in the history of ever being saved by the redemption of Christ. Sacrifices were for a few reasons, but none of which were salvation oriented. If you wanna get really technical in Acts 21:17-26 Paul performs sacrifices after the death and resurrection of Christ for the express purpose of teaching people that this line of thinking that is being espoused in this post is categorically false.
Yes, Christ came with the express purpose of redeeming mankind by his sacrifice and pay the debt of the penalty of violation of the Law of God. his sacrifice is to free us from the bondage of Sin in our lives, allowing us to overcome sin. His words "it is finished" are not evidence of a destruction of the immutable words of God in the rest of the Bible, but rather a statement that the debt is paid. There are entire books of the Bible that discuss the returning of Christ and what that entails, this is by no means written off so glibly by the "it is finished" interpretation. This cites that Christ's death means that we no longer follow the law of God or the Prophets, but again that is EXACTLY what the FALSE teachers said of him Acts 6:10-15, and Matthew 5:17-19. Why do you think Jesus says in Matthew 7:21-23"Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
Falsely they make the claims about Christ. They make the same claim the false teachers said about him. The idea that they are saying is that if you are obedient to the very WORDS OF GOD as a RESPONSE to your FAITH in CHRIST, then you are invalidating the Cross. This is heretical garbage. What paragraph 3 is trying to say is that God was too weak and that he set up a faulty system that his son had to do a rush patch job on and nothing of that was the case. God's standard of Holiness is exactly what Christ lives. We, as followers of Christ are called to live the way Christ lives. Luke 6:40,Luke 24:27,John 5:46-47.
The irony of all of this is that it's capped off with a condescending message about actually reading the scriptures, when most of these paragraphs are talking points handed down or maligned from posts of sermons taken out of context. They're not what the Bible says. Now as to the Meme itself, Jesus says that He and the Father are one and He says that He is the Way the Truth and the Light, When he says that He is the word made flesh, that does mean that Leviticus 18:22: and Leviticus 20:13are from Him as well.
