L-RD our G-d is holy. Yeshua also commanded us to live without
hypocrisy, and to go beyond just the written understanding of Scripture
to embrace the spirit of the commands. We must pursue holy living as
followers of Messiah, being willing to set aside actions and activities
that in any way hurt our testimony and hinder our ability to live
unencumbered for Messiah Yeshua.
