Yes, grafted on the tree. Autocorrect gets me a lot too.
I’ve realized that the purity question isn’t really a disproof of God as the above article really pointed out. After all God is the creator of the Law and it’s true intreprator.
I’d be very careful about what you say about the mosaic law. This is a bigger problem for fundamentalists/biblical innerancy. Christains believe,as do I, that God gave the Law to the Jews. If you say there’s nothing wrong with drinking blood, it doesn’t make you impure, then God lied. You can say maybe that something like faith in Christ makes one pure even if you drink blood. Paul talks about all things now being lawful, right?
In a simmilar vein is some Protestants who say that God doesn’t like or care about ritual worship, only personal relationship with Jesus. They obviously haven’t read huge sections of the Bible. God is very concerned and detailed over ritual worship and ritual purity.
I almost became a Jew. I still practice some of the commandments. So that’s why I’m such a defender of the Law. Maybe not as a means of salvation nor binding on all people (it only applies to Jews) and maybe not as intreprated by the Rabbis. But how can devotion to God and moral conduct be considered bad? Why take the Jews Tanakh but insult what’s in it? I feel like it’s Protestantism that makes this mistake far more than Catholics, so this wasn’t directed to anyone on this thread. Just a reminder that God loves Jews (and you too!) and He gave them the Law.
