    Diesel, matt. 15:11, Jesus states not that which goes in a man's mouth defiles the man but that which comes out of the mouth defiles the man. Following the law does not save the man. No ones justified by the law. Paul says he was perfect in the law but found wanting in the sight of Jesus Christ the Lord. Faith that worketh by Grace. Amen.

    Diesel, Let no man judge you in meat or drink or in respect of a holy day the new moon or the sabbath days which are a shadow of things to come. But the body is of Christ.
