Jerusalem Council II: The Wrath of Cohen (Question 33)
So there's a few people out there who want to establish a second Jerusalem Council for the Messianic community. You've got guys like Dan Juster who are trying to do it:
And you've got other Messianic associations giving it a shot:
I have a few reservations about these attempts.
Man needs government because of the evil inclination. And not just any government but it must be a covenantal government in order to (1) orient man to G-d; (2) separate powers so that the government institution does not become an institutionalization of the evil inclination; (3) ensure that each covenantal member is being represented since each member is an equal ben brit (son of the covenant).
ON TO THE QUESTION:
What sort of risks do you see in pursuing a second Jerusalem Council? And, if you think there are risks, do you believe there's ways of mitigating or negating those risks?
