Paul Did Not Condemn Sabbath & Feast Observance

How could anyone be confused by Galatians? It says that, if we are led by the spirit, we are not under the law, which aligns perfectly with Acts and the Epistles. The law was given to Israel as God's minimum standard of morality for man (and many rituals that pointed to his plan of redemption thru Christ) in order that they might survive long enough to the birth of the Messiah. Once the Messiah had come, the tutorial shadows were superfluous and even harmful. For if a person listens to Judaizers, getting circumcised as their initiation to keeping the law in the flesh, they are fallen from grace and Christ profits them nothing. Keep Jesus' commands to circumcise your hearts, and love as he loved, and let Jesus be your Sabbath rest, then you will keep the whole law in the spirit. Trying to keep the law in the flesh is impossible, and everyone who tries is under a death sentence. You cannot put new wine in old skins.
