Actually no, it's not helpful. When there are differences in the interpretation and understanding of Scripture, simply posting the texts in question do not provide clarity. There was a specific reason I asked the questions I did. I'm asking for a detailed explanation of what was claimed based on the...

I do have a LAW written in my heart, and the testimony of the Spirit Very intriguing. Could you tell us about this law written in your heart? What are its commandments? Where can I read of the commandments contained in this law? To whom was it given and when? Did Abraham keep this law? Did Jesus Ch...

These things are contrary to the LAW of righteousness, and are not of faith, nor are they things done in the Spirit. I would agree that those things which are contrary to God as expressed in the commandments are indeed contrary to the law of righteousness, are not of faith, and are not of the Spiri...

Ok. Yes if we commit murder we break the law of God. Will you then agree that you are also breaking the law of God if you do any of the following? Have other gods before the one true God Worship graven images Use God's name vainly Dishonour your father and mother Commit adultry Steal Bear false wit...

What is the point in discussing aspects of the law of God like the Sabbath or the law itself? To merely argue one's own position, to try to assert or even impose one's own beliefs upon those who might hold a different view? Shouldn't the point really be to try to gain a more accurate understanding o...

Why do you act as my accuser? I have spoken what is written and this is what the Scriptures say, By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments . 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome [/u] (...

If you do not wish to know about it I will no longer speak to you about it.

No one's going to hell - unless you are using the term as it was understood in the old English as referring to the grave or death. The fact that you are blissfully unaware of this is a clear indication of where the delusion lies. One cannot walk according to the spirit if he is in rebellion to the e...

1 John 5:7 is a known forgery. That should be understood by every Bible scholar by now. This forgery is the primary defence for the trinity, thus on this alone the doctrine falls. It is agreed almost universally that there is no substantial support in Scripture for this false teaching which has its ...

If the law of God is to be written on our hearts and placed in our minds instead of just words carved in stone, how is it we are not to obey the commandments of God? In fact doesn't the whole concept speak of the spiritual intent of the law as the motivating factor that should cause us to obey God's...

Why do you refer to the Mosaic law? What is it to you and how is it different from the law of God? Yes, whatever is not of faith is sin....and.... sin is breaking the law, therefore, breaking the law is not acting on faith. And conversely, to exercise faith is to keep the law of God. If we trust God...

I suppose my next question is somewhat related to what Byblos asked authentic earlier. If sin is the transgression of the law, and Scripture clearly says it is (1 John 3:4), then to break the law is to commit sin. And, if we are commanded to no longer live sinfully, that is, we are to avoid sin, the...

It's not a presumption, it's a logical deduction based on the written word. It follows as day the night that if observance of God's commandments was not required, the church would not have to be concerned about being wrongfully judged on how they kept them. If the commandments did not have to be obs...

I'm not saying that the Law in it self is done away with, but it has been fulfilled in the body of Jesus. Keep in mind that the ceremonial laws such as (tithing, sacrifice offerings, the dietary laws, the sabbath, new moon oberservations...etc) were a SIGN of the coming Christ and his relationship ...
