Given that concluded your earlier post with "Do as Christ did.
Believe as Christ did.
If you do, then you'll be following the OT, as Christ did", I don't
think my summary was unfair. The fact that I was "unable to quote a
scripture that says that Christ abolished the OT" is hardly surprising
in view of the fact that I neither think nor said that he did."
I see no point in continuing this conversation.
