Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

K will obviously reply but Ofcourse we can answer these last two questions. Christ said love one another as I have loved you. That is the only way people will know that you are children of god. Not by keeping sabbaths, nor by not murder people. So the murder command was given to jews and nailed to ...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Colossians 2:13-14 13When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it ...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

In Matthew 5:17 Jesus reportedly said: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everythi...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

1. Let's be logical. You can ask any lawyer about a person that is found "not guilty" of breaking the law. Ask that lawyer if the guilty verdict allows the person on trial to break that law again because he/she has been found "not guilty" at some point. The ability for me to edit my posts has disap...

Re: Survival of the Fittest

God could have done anything he desired. To equate animal bloodshed with God not being happy about it - to say sin caused the necessity for animal sacrifice - silly. Not to mention, animal sacrifices never saved ANYONE! God implemented the predator prey system, well before Adam and Eve sinned. He d...

Re: Survival of the Fittest

I think God delighted in what the sacrifices represented. Like tithing. These were ancient times. Ancient economics. Different norms. Different rules. Do you really? You think God is happy that sin entered and blood had to be shed? I'll admit I think God is happy that sinners are reconciled, but I'...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

And you seem to be defending to keep the law just so you can have the sabbath justified. This is the best part of your post...that you would think I'M trying to justify the Sabbath. 8If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. 9But if ...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Weren't you recently arguing that Jesus as God didn't break the Sabbath, but rather fulfilled the requirements of the Law? Who was nailed to the cross? So too the requirements of the Law, met in Jesus, were also nailed. 1. Let's be logical. You can ask any lawyer about a person that is found "not g...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Hmm. How many strawmen can I spot? :roll: You can follow the God that JW's believe in, and be judged according to the Law. Let's see how well you do on D-Day in having kept the Law. y:-? As for me, I accept and believe Christ is God who took on human nature, nailed the requirements of the Law to th...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Of course the purpose of the law was to point to sin, to point to the fact that nobody is righteous by observing the law, and to point forward to Christ's redemptive work. I agree! We agree. Edit: We agree up to your second comma. Wait! The law does not point forward to Christ's redemptive work. Th...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Bav, Your argument is faulty because it is based on a faulty premise. Let me see if I can help. 1) the 10 commandments were given as a law to all people, directly from God 2) God hasn't removed the 10 commandments as a law, in the same way that He gave them 3) the 10 commandments still apply to us ...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

A few of you are simply not looking at the texts to see how they read, but looking at other texts in light of a perceived idea.

How does a person that believes the law is abolished reconcile that belief with Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7 for starters?

Is sin abolished?

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Only a jew knows sin from the law. The Christian knows it from Christ's teachings which at times goes against what the ot claims. Plus most of the decalouge Is straight forward common sense. Don't lie don't steal, etc etc, these ideas exist outside of the law as well, and any functioning society wo...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Christ fulfilling the law means He was not under the curse of the law, not that the law ended...as you even prove by repeating murder above...though He willfully BECAME a curse for us, not in that He sinned, but that He willfully took on the curse of the law. So Jesus paid the price for breaking th...
