Is Jewish Covenant Gone
  
James L,
Read Ezekiel, if the old covenant is done with, why the animal sacrafice and temple and priests, etc. during the milleneum?


Is Jewish Covenant Gone
  
POST 1- One only has to look at the life of Paul, as presented in the Bible to see that this is a false notion. After his first missionary trip, he went to Jerusalem and met the Apostles. One topic was what to do with the gentiles. At Paul's urging they do not need to be circumcised and the agreement is made that they should "abstain from pollution of idols, and from fornication and things strangled and from blood. For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day," Acts 15:20-21. What we have is one part of the law being not applicable to gentiles but another part being so, as a minimum, as they learn the rest of God's commandments during the sabbath teachings.


Is Jewish Covenant Gone
  
POST 3- The last instance I want to reference is his defense before the Sanhedrin in Acts 22, which starts "I am verily a man which am a Jew...", he isn't saying he was once or use to be, his statement is the present tense. either Paul believes in the importance of the OT covenant or is being deceitful to save his fresh.
Either the New Testament of the Bible was predominately written by a man was a deceiving hypocrite or by a man who understood the relevance of the old covenant and it relationship to the new.


Where Do Fake Christians Go
  
Believing in Jesus is not criteria for salvation. Satan believes in Jesus, does quote scripture and will find himself in the lake of fire.
In the situation described in the question we have a person trying to work out their salvation. They have attained a knowledge of Christ but haven't completely submitted.
If a true Christian sees a person in this state, don't pass judgement lest you condemn yourself. Instead pray earnestly for this person and as often as you can, entreat the person to pray with you. Seek to teach, first by the example of your own life and by secondly by sharing scripture that applies to their live meekly, gently and with Christian love.
