How odd !! Do you follow your faith to the LETTER?
Isn't that what Jesus said to NEVER do ?
St Paul too makes this central : ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Even the heretical Gnostic writings kept that central truth
the story about the disciples plucking
grain on the sabbath luke 61 5 is followed by another short
story not found in other manuscripts it reads on the same day
when he saw a man working on the sabbath he said to him man
blessed are you if you know what you are doing but if you dont
know you are cursed and a transgressor of the law
And what about the story of the Rich Man, only the emphasis on the Spirit as against the Letter makes sense of it
"and the lord said to him why do you say J
I have kept the law and the prophets for it is written in the law thou shalt love
thy neighbor as thyself and behold many of your brothers children
of abraham are dressed in filthy rags and dying of hunger and your
house is full of many good things yet nothing at all goes out from it
