If the Gentiles were not proselytes and uncircumcised could they still enter the synagogue?

Based on scriptures, I have said it and will keep saying it again: I was not saved by observing the law (fornicating no more, committing adultery no more, stealing no more, killing no more etc) but I was saved by faith in Christ Jesus. (Grace ) And my sins were wiped off; my past sins, present and future, as long as I choose to remain under Grace, where the power of sin over my life has been broken and subdued eternally- that means when perhaps I fall to sin, (Pastor Vasile's son is still his son even if he is locked up in jail) the effect of sins cannot be felt over me, because of the covering of Grace- the New covenant of life which I am in with God, as t is entirely impossible for anyone whether born again or not to claim he or she has no sin in him: where sin before God, is sin, even as much as those things done out of faith. The power of death or judgment is sin, the power of sin is the law, but were there is no law, there is no transgression, and where there is no transgression, there is no sin, and where there is no sin, there is no judgment or death. Therefore, I AM NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE, SAVED BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS, WHERE I STAND AS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS, HELPED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO LIVE THE CHRIST LIFE, YET BATH WITH MERCY AND GRACE WHEN I FALTER.....

More suitable for today's time if an armed gunman is standing before me and my initial reaction is panic I have sinned...but that does not mean that I did not have fear. However it's a good man is standing before me and I have fear but I remain calm in inside of myself I pray and and trust in the Lord I have not sinned. We have to understand that as humans we will have any emotion, but it is what we do with the emotion that will determine the sin.

Again I disagree.. The Bible encourages us to fear not, but where does it call fear a 'Sin'? If that is the case then anger is a sin... And we know very clearly the Bible says be angry but sin not. I respect that you may be well educated, however I disagree that fear is a sin. The Bible says to bring everything to God and so if I have a fear my initial reaction is to bring it to God. There for having the fear is not the sin, but it is a reaction that determines whether or not you have sin. If I don't have enough money to pay my bills and I worry I have sinned. But if I don't have enough money to pay my bills and I pray and trust God I have not sinned.

I don't agree that fear is a sin.. I do believe that the action you perform once you feel the emotion of fear could be sinful but to fear is not sin. Just like to have anger is not a sin for the Bible declares to be angry but sin not. So if I have a fear it's what follows that emotion that determines the sin. If It's raining and I have limited visibility that will create fear, and if I panic I have sinned, but if I am calm and pray I have not sinned even though I did fear.

Ask the priest
Confession of sins

How much can we rely upon the wrtings of the apostles' disciples?

9 iun 2012 | ora 08.57 Doctrine | Priest Vasile Filat

During a debate between a Baptist minister and an Orthodox priest, I received the following question:

Mr. Filat, you said that you are an historian so I have a question for you. For example, Homer wrote about the Trojan war a couple of hundred years after the event and nobody questions the validity of his story so why do you reject, or at least do not accept, the writings of the apostles’ disciples who were taught in the 2nd and 3rd Centuries?

If you have ever read Homer’s the Iliad or the Odyssey then I am sure that you have questioned the validity of the entire story. As a modern man and especially as a Christian, I am sure that you cannot accept the stories of gods in Greek mythology as truth. We know from the Holy Scriptures that all of the Greek mythology does not reflect reality, instead they are pagan inventions. However, archaeologists believe that it was a real event that inspired Homer to write his two masterpieces of ancient Greek literature, and thus began the search to discover ancient Troy. Based on these two ideas, we can conclude that Homer’s the Iliad and the Odyssey contain some truth as well as much imagination. Archaeologists have had to distinguish the objective elements from the subjective elements.

Now concerning the direct and indirect writings of the apostles, I do not understand why you accuse me of not accepting these writings. I accept the writings according to their recognized authenticity, that is, that the writings are proven to be written by the apostles. From many different discussions with Orthodox priests as well as seminary students who study at the theological seminary for Orthodox priests, I have concluded that I have a good library of the early apostles as well as the church fathers which many of these priests and seminary students would like to acquire someday. It has taken much effort and many years to attain this library. I have also learned through these discussions with the Orthodox clergy that I have studied more of the early church writings than many of them have done.

There are things in the early church writings that I cannot accept. I cannot accept the teachings that directly contradict the doctrinal writings of the 66 canonical books of the Bible. By the way, the word “canon” means “measuring standard”. The canonical writings of the Old Testament and New Testament make up the standard for the Christian faith. All others writings must be measured by the standard of the 66 canonical books. When there is a contradiction in the early church writings, a teaching that contradicts in some way the Holy Bible, then we must give priority to the Bible and not the writings of man. This is what the canon teaches us:

16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness ; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (II Timothy 3)

The duty of all the disciples of Jesus Christ throughout the ages is to hold to the standard of sound truth as revealed in the Bible. We must hold to the teachings that were delivered to us by Jesus Christ, exactly as they are written in the pages of the Bible. Thank God that He transmitted His teachings directly to us via the Words of the Bible. Everything that matches up to the writings of the Bible can be accepted. Once somethings contradicts the sound doctrine of the Bible, of the teachings of Jesus Christ then priority must be given to the Scriptures. May the Lord help us.
