Matthew 15:9 You worship me in vain because you teach doctrines of men as commandments
They ain't my commandments, in other words says the Lord! You worship me in lip service only, because you do not follow my commandments, you follow that which is commanded by men in their doctrine. As to doctrine, Christ is referring in the foregoing to the doctrine of Pharisees and scribes. Christ is speaking of Pharisees and scribes who make up their own commandments and claim they are the commandments of God. It is evil to teach that commandments made up by men are the commandments of God. Pharisees and scribes make up their own commandments and claim such are the commandments of God, including Pharisee Paul who makes up his own commandments in his doctrine, claiming they are the commandments of Christ.
There are numerous Christian sects, and all are united in that they are believers in the gospel of the false apostle Pharisee Paul. They hold to the doctrine of Paul as if Pharisee Paul's doctrine is the doctrine of Christ, and whatever is commanded therein is the commandment of Christ as far as they are concerned.
An intellectually honest person knows that the following commandment of Paul conflicts with the following commandment of Christ:
2 Corinthians 10:6 Be ready to revenge all disobedience
John 12:47 If any man hears my words and does not want to do them, I do not judge him
In line with the above theme, the following commandment of Pharisee Paul conflicts with the following commandments of Christ:
Romans 15:18 I shall make the Gentiles obedient in word and deed
22:11 Let him that is filthy be filthy still and let him that is
unjust be unjust still. And let him that is righteous be righteous
still and let him that is holy be holy still
12:20 Smoking flax [evil people] he shall not quench and a bruised
reed [evil people] he shall not crush until he sends forth judgment unto
victory [victory being the return of Christ to reign on earth]
Which commandments to follow, Paul's or Christ's? The children of Hell Pharisee Paul converts choose Paul's commandments to revenge all disobedience, and agree Gentiles (and throw in Jews for some of them) must be made obedient to God. Kill, punish, torture those who reject Paul's Christ.
The true worshipers of the Father say as Christ commanded: no wrath from God upon those who hear Christ's words and refuse to do them. There are few true worshipers of the Father.
Christ commanded: let the filthy and unjust continue their ways if they want (Rev. 22:11). Far more evil than the raping gay men of Sodom were the towns wherein Christ did great miracles and yet they still refused to give up doing evil. But Christ did not destroy those towns, as Sodom and other cities were destroyed during the time period wherein the law and the prophets prophesied (Matthew 11:13). As Christ said, John the Baptist has taken over from the law and the prophets, which means it is no longer 'repent or wrath', but rather turn from doing evil (those who are doing evil), because God's kingdom is coming to earth. Rather, Christ told those unrepentant evildoers that in the next life they will go to Hell (Matthew 11:23-24). When God's kingdom suddenly comes to earth, it is too late for those evildoers who refuse to cease doing evil:
Matthew 13:41 Christ shall send forth his angels who shall remove all evil people and all offensive things from the earth
The commandments of Pharisee Paul are not the commandments of God. The many who think they are of Christ worship God in vain because they teach as though being God's commandments the commandments of Pharisee Paul. And for that reason, Christianity is as Judaism which calls for following the commandments of men as written in the doctrine of men, such as the Talmud and the Mishnah, writings of Pharisees and scribes.
Again I point out, as written above, one cannot follow both the commandment of Christ that says no judgment on those who refuse to do his words and the commandment of Pharisee Paul that says punish everyone who refuses to follow Paul's God. One either believes Christ and follows him, or believes Paul and follows him, because Paul is not of Christ and teaches as commandments of Christ that which is not commanded by Christ.
Christianity and Judaism are exactly the same in that all who hold to either Judaism or Christianity are people who worship God in vain because they hold to commandments of men as if such are the commandments of God
As to the commandments of Pharisee Paul that are supposed to be followed by Christians as though such commandments are the commandments of God, I go through a list of them in my article at link below. The commandments of Pharisee Paul conflict with the commandments of God.
In Able and Cain, there is a clear cut example of those who are of God, and those who are not of God, through their own choosing they are not of God because they simply refuse to do as God wants, as God commands.
Cain did not raise livestock, Able did. Cain grew crops only. Cain and Able are brothers, the sons of Adam and Eve. Cain worships God by bringing God an offering which offering to God is some of the crops he harvested. Able worships God by bringing God an offering which offering is some of his livestock. God accepts Able's offering, but does not accept Cain's offering.
God had issued no command to Able or Cain, Adam or Eve, issued no command to anyone at that time as to how God is to be worshiped. Cain is not at fault for having offered crops to God, not knowing what offering is pleasing to God. Where Cain is at fault is that upon learning that God wants an offering of a sheep, Cain having seen that God was pleased with Able's offering of sheep, instead of offering a sheep to God, he kills Able.
God loves Able. God loves Cain because he offers Cain an opportunity to do what is right, but Cain refuses to give up evil deeds, refuses to do what he had learned is pleasing to God. And then Cain goes and kills that creature which God loves, Able. That is how it is with those who claim to be of God, but refuse to do his commandments. In the end, such hate those who God is pleased with.
Christians and those who practice Judaism worship God in vain because they run to men for their commandments and like to believe the commandments of men are the commandments of God. In all the sects of Christianity, the Pharisee Paul convert children of Hell prefer the commandments of Paul rather than the commandments of Christ; and in all the sects of Judaism, the children of Hell converts to Pharisee and scribe doctrine prefer Pharisee and scribe commandments to the commandments of God. They look outside the five books of Moses and the Tanakh to include Pharisee and scribe doctrine (the Talmud and the Mishnah).
Christ does say there will be people who make it to Heaven who broke the least of God's commandments and taught others to do the same. Such conduct is not the same as claiming commandments of men are the commandments of God. Rather, such conduct is to offer explanation why one or more of the least of God's commandments need not be followed. And such who do that are not evil people, for evil people do not go to Heaven, but offered what seemed good reasoning why a least commandment of God need not be followed. And they were not hypocrites, because they broke the least of God's commandments themselves as well. Good intentioned, though wrong, and Christ says such people will be called Least in the kingdom of God. But those who kept God's commandments and taught others to do the same are going to be called Great in the kingdom of God (Matthew 5:19).
As to Gentiles and God's law, I go into detail in the links below. Suffice is to say, as an example, Deuteronomy 14:21, God commands that Jews do not eat any animal that dies of itself, but a Gentile may eat of any animal that dies of itself. Gentiles are not Jews, and what is commanded by God for Jews to observe is for the Jews, not Gentiles. And where God commands Gentiles observe, that they should do if they love God. For example, a Gentile staying with Jews is to observe the Sabbath, and outside the company of Jews, a Gentile need not observe the Sabbath. It is blasphemy before God for Gentiles to claim to be Jews (Rev. 2:9). In Romans 2:28-29 is the blasphemous doctrine of Pharisee Paul that Gentiles who believe on Pharisee Paul's gospel are the true Jews.
Cain is as evil people are who worship God in vain because they prefer the commandments of men to the commandments of God. Cain refused God's way, and murdered Able who was of God's way. So too the angels in league with Satan fight against the angels who are in league with God (Daniel 10:13, Rev. 12:7). So too, the Jews of the Lord are killed by those who claim to be of God (John 15:26 - 16:4).
Evil Cain saw that the right way to please God is to present a sheep as an offering. God left the door open to Cain to do what is right (Genesis 4:7). But rather than do what is right, Cain killed him that was of God, Able. And then Cain protests to God that God is driving Cain out of God's sight. Well Cain, you just killed someone who God loved, and though you want to remain in God's sight, exactly as the children of Hell Pharisee Paul converts claim to be in God's sight, and the children of Hell converts to the Talmud and Mishnah claim to be in God's sight, God does not want you in his sight because you are evil. The evil Cain frets over his situation, being driven from God's sight and a fugitive on earth to be killed by anyone who wishes to kill him:
Genesis 4:14 ... I shall be hid from your face and it shall come to pass that everyone who finds me shall slay me
They only think about themselves, no guilty conscience for having killed another, they are all about themselves, the worshipers of God in vain:
11:48 If we leave him alone, every man will believe on him and then
the Romans will come and take away our place and our nation
The place of the Pharisees, the nation of the Pharisees - that is all that matters to them. Just as Cain did not care about God, did not care that he killed the man God was pleased with, the Pharisees care not one wit about God's son, but only cared about their own place in the world. So too with Christians, they do not care what Christ says, they only care about their place within the so-called body of Christ that is created in the doctrine of Pharisee Paul. So too with those of Judaism, they do not care what God and Christ say, they only care about their place within Judaism, whatever sect they happen to be affiliated with, which all require belief in commandments of men as though they are the commandments of God.
The term, Judeo-Christian, came into being during the decade of 1950. Indeed, Christianity and Judaism are united, but not for the reason proffered (that both believe in the ten commandments), but rather for the reason that both Christianity and Judaism teach the commandments of men as though being the commandments of God. There is no more law of Moses in the gospel of Pharisee Paul and therefore Christianity is not as Judaism which holds that the law of Moses is to be observed. Pharisee Paul says explicitly that Moses' law was replaced by the 'law of the spirit in the life of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:2), and in no sect of Judaism is it taught that there is a 'law of the spirit in the life of Jesus Christ', nor taught that the law of Moses was done way with by God. Judaism and Christianity are united in that both claim that commandments of men are the commandments of God.
In vain the Christians worship God, those who are converts to the gospel of Pharisee Paul. As to the peons in the Christian church pews, there are those who are ignorant of the truth and if the truth were put to them, they would give up church attendance being that the church altars, church rulers are all founded solely on the gospel of Pharisee Paul, the anti-Christ (1 John 2:18). Christ says, come out of her my people so that you do not take part in her sins (Rev. 18:4).
I am called a Judaizer by the ignorant children of Hell converts to Pharisee Paul's gospel. Truth is, it is the converts to Paul's gospel who are as those who practice whatever sect of Judaism they practice because both Christianity and Judaism look to doctrine of men for what they claim are commandments of God, but are in truth the commandments of men and not the commandments of God. And in vain both Christians and those who practice Judaism worship God. As to the Christians:
7:22-23 Many shall say to me in that day, but Lord Lord we did many
wonderful works in your name ... And I shall tell them, I never knew
you. Depart from me, workers of lawlessness
Christ never commanded that Moses' law is done away with (Matthew 5:17), but the children of Hell Pharisee Paul converts (Christians) who Christ speaks to in the above passage teach the commandment of the man Pharisee Paul that Moses' law is done away with (Colossians 2:14, Romans 6:15, 8:2). They are workers of lawlessness, teaching commandments of the man, Pharisee Paul, as though such commandments are the commandments of Christ.
Christ never commanded that the people who reject his words are to be made obedient to his words!
John 12:47 If any man hears my words and does not want to do them, I do not judge him
Pharisee Paul says no to Christ's above-stated command and offers his own command claiming same to be the command of Christ:
Romans 15:18 I shall make the Gentiles obedient in word and deed
There is a relatively new movement within Christian sects that says God and Christ may only be called upon in their Hebrew language names. Where did Christ teach that? And as to God commanding the Jews not to take his name in vain, it is not in vain to call Yeshua the English translation of Yeshua, which is Jesus. The pushers of the Hebrew only name for calling upon the Son of God are the same ones who believe upon the gospel of Pharisee Paul. And the truly stupid claim that John is a liar, or that some one other than Paul fits the bill, for it had to be someone alive during the time that John was alive who is the anti-Christ:
1 John 2:18 You have heard that the anti-Christ shall come and now there are many anti-Christs
John saw many anti-Christs in his lifetime, which came after the coming of the anti-Christ. Pharisee Paul fits the bill of the anti-Christ, even distinguishing his gospel as contrary to the gospel of Christ, while claiming same to be the doctrine of Christ, as the anti-Christ claims Christ was required to teach lies while on earth per the instructions of God (Romans 11:30-32):
2:7-8 Peter is the preacher of the gospel of Circumcision for the Jews
and I am the preacher of the gospel of Un-Circumcision for the Gentiles
Romans 15:8 Christ is the preacher of the gospel of Circumcision
The prefix, un, means opposite of, contrary to!
I liken the fool evil ones who come down on those who call the son of God, Christ or Jesus Christ or Jesus or Immanual and while also believing in the doctrine of God's son, to the Pharisees who came down on Christ's apostles for having eaten from a wheat field on a Sabbath day (Matthew 12:1-8). There are many children of Hell Pharisee Paul converts on the 'call him Yeshua only' bandwagon, fools!
