Law and Grace

There are those that say you must follow the Law of Moses in order to obtain salvation in God’s Kingdom, and there are those that say all you need to do is believe in God’s Son, Jesus or Yeshua (Yeshua is His Hebrew name) in order to be saved. And there are some that say the Law of Moses has been abolished or ended. What do James and the Apostle Paul have to say about it? How is one saved?

About Jack A. Albert

I was born near downtown Joliet, IL by Italian parents on February the 9th, 1932. Started reading the Bible in my mid teens, but didn’t fully understand what Jesus accomplished until years later when I joined the Navy because of the Korean War. I joined the Navy for three reasons: One, I felt a responsibility to serve my country; Two, many of my uncles had served in the Navy during World War II; and Three, because of my religious beliefs, I felt that there was a better chance of my not having to kill anyone face to face in the Navy. After praying about it, I enlisted in the Navy in early February 1951, and eventually was assigned to a ship in the amphibious branch of the Navy, named the USS Monrovia APA 31.

Being in the amphibious branch of the Navy, we carried Marines and practiced amphibious landings. During one of those times there was a Marine Master Sergeant who conducted a bible class aboard my ship, and I attended it. It was in his class that I came to fully understand what Jesus did for any of us who puts their faith in Him. God honored my prayer and kept me away from combat. But it wasn’t until many years later (starting in the 60’s) that a cousin and I (after much prayer and study of the Bible) came to see the Jewishness of our beliefs.

My cousin and I and a very close friend started a small church in Lockport, IL, but because our beliefs, for the most part, were different than typical “Christianity” we only lasted for a few years. I eventually ended up in a Messianic Jewish congregation because it was closer to my beliefs. But as I said in the preface of my book, what I have written (with much prayer) is mainly from my own study of the Scriptures.

Like the Apostle Paul, I never married. Not that I didn’t desire to, but I left it up to God. I came close a few times, but it must not have been His will. Perhaps, if I had married I would never have written my book. As the Apostle Paul said:

(1 Cor 7:32-34a NIV) I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord's affairs--how he can please the Lord. {33} But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world--how he can please his wife-- {34} and his interests are divided.

Be that as it may, I never married. As I look back, I believe that God had saved me much grief: One died in child birth, one died of cancer, and one died, but I don’t know how since I found out indirectly, years later, through the obituary of her father.

Being as old as I am, I could have written much more, but what I have written, mostly concerns why I wrote my book. I pray that God, through His Son, Jesus/Yeshua, will guide all who read it.
