Nathan Roberts of FlatEarthDoctrine Post About Romans 13:-8-10

by David on December 13, 2018

Nathan Roberts of FlatEarthDoctrine posted the following false teaching.  

Flat earther Nathan Roberts proclaimed on his FlatEarthDoctrine Facebook page:

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” Romans‬ ‭13:8-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Jeff David commented with:

But I thought the law was abolished ? Here Are Examples Of Paul Keeping Torah:
* Circumcised Timothy (Acts 16:1-3)
* Took the nazarite vow (Acts 18:18; 21:17-26)
* Taught and observed Gods holy days such as:
* Passover (Acts 20:6; 1 Cor. 5:6-8; 11:17-34)
* Shavuot (Pentecost) (Acts 20:16; 1 Cor. 16:8)
* Fasting on Yom Kippur (Acts 27:9)

PAUL MADE A TEMPLE SACRIFICE

So Paul went to the Temple the next day with the other men. They had already started the purification ritual, so he publicly announced the date when their vows would end and (((sacrifices))) would be offered for each of them. Acts 21:26

Paul kept the Sabbath
Acts 18:4 – And he (Paul) reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.(Gentiles)

Nathan Roberts replied with:

How come you can’t distinguish the fact that Paul was a Jew attempting to win over Jews to Jesus, and at the same time rebuked Peter for being a hypocrite for his duplicity of behavior for causing confusion to those he was ministering to, gentiles?

It’s amazing that the verses that Nathan Roberts cites, Romans‬ ‭13:8-10, shows how loving your neighbor as thyself; fulfills the commandments against adultery, killing, stealing, bearing false witness, and coveting.

How is he so blind as to not see this?   If you love someone as you love yourself, then you won’t break those commandments and sin against them.

In Paul’s letters to the saints at Corinthe, he was addressing Gentile believers, not Jews as Nathan implies.

It’s just another case of Nathan Roberts failing to understand the proper context of Scripture.

Nathan Roberts is also very confused about what Scripture proclaims about the shape of the earth, as he takes Bible verses out of context, to make them seem like they’re pointing to a flat earth.
