Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law. Romans 3:29-31
Every so often I come across an article that seeks to show that there are really two gods in the Bible. There is the Old Testament god, an angry, vindictive and cruel god. The there is the New Testament god a god of love and forgiveness. If one superficially reads both Testaments that may indeed seem to be the case. Yet as Paul writes, there is only one God as God is one. The same God is in both Testaments and He is the God of both the Jew and the Gentile.
There is one God and one Law that applies to both. The difference is that those who follow Christ have the Law fulfilled while those who do not are still trying to live under the Law. Jesus tells us He came not to replace the Law but to fulfill it. God’s law is still there. It did not change. What changed is how we relate to the Law. Jesus made it possible for us to come into a right relationship with God. A relationship we were unable to obtain under the Law because we could not keep the whole Law.
We have one God, one Law, one Christ and one Way.
Have a blessed day,
