I have been away from this blog for a while, I have been commenting on a blog (progressive CoC) they teach we have been freed from the commandments of God in the Old testament, by Faith in Jesus , and the grace of God The Father. I have been pushing back against this false doctrine, but I must admit without the success that I had hoped for. as the New Testament plainly states we have not been freed from obedience to the Word of God.
Mat 15:1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Mat 15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not
their hands when they eat bread. Mat 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the
commandment of God by your tradition? Mat 15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that
curseth father or mother, let him die the death. Mat 15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by
whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with
their lips; but their heart is far from me. Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of
Mat 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
All the laws and all the prophycies are based upon these two commands. Yes there are
only “TWO” GREAT COMMAMDMENTS, but they are far reaching, brother really far
reaching. We have to obey these before the others even come into play.
Rom 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath
fulfilled the law. Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not
steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other
commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself. Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for
now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
