Many coming into the Bible Discussion make
reference to the prophecy in Ezekiel and in
Jeremiah, among others, of how we should
receive the law as writtenno longer on tablets
of stone, rather it is to be written upon the
fleshy tablets of our hearts.

What is conveniently overlooked almost
all of the time is this, there were only Ten,
Commandments, written by God in stone, no
more and no less.

Now why is this if there are only the Ten why
then the reference gen erallay to "the law?"

It is quite simple, the Ten Commandments,
when studied and understood , actually
do contain all of the law that is not to ever
pass until heaven and earth have passed away,
and perhaps not even then.

Conveniently overlooked is the truth that there
is no mention of any of the Commandments
being deleted, removed or abolished. There
remain ten on our hearts.

Again I stress to all who wish to kowdfinitivly
about the law under grace, with God, our Father,
having inscribed them on our hearts, it is our
hearts testifying to how the laws is yet, according
to the enlightenment of Jesus Christ and the Holy
Spirit.

Examine each of the Commandments and see if
any one of them is not God's wisdom and will
for us all to live in His light.

Thus we live in grace and we recognize the wisdom and
will of our Father Who has given us Jesus Christ.

Let us praise God in obedience and gratitude for His
Great and Wonderful Sacrifice just for each one of us, amen.

Yet the ten commands

1. Never helped anyone become rightious so they could earn salvation
2. Never help a person become righteous because so they could be “like christ”
3. Never justified anyone
4. Never helped one person become sanctified


I can go on and on

YES, the law (including the ten commands) is stil active, every jot and title. But along with it

1. The punishment for breaking ONE WORD is still the curse
2. The only way to OBEY it is to never break it once (that was demanded by the law itself)
3. The law was given to PROVE us sinners, Not MAKE US not sinners.

people want to talk about law. There is not a problem with this. It is in the Bible. But what we have to do is PROPERLY interpret what the law was given for. AND what we have to do to make us people who do live a life which does not continually break it.

What is conveniently overlooked is what is the purpose of the law. And what it looks like when we are obedient to it.

Are the Commandments written in stone and given to Moses more important than those not written in stone?

Should we follow what Jesus taught us too?

the really funny thing is that of course we keep the commandments!

and folks accusing others of being lawkeepers constantly try to say that you and others here are saying you want to keep your salvation by the law

and I guess some do not know that Jesus actually gave us tougher commandments

really not easy to love those you would like to hit over the head with a 2 x 4 LOL!

much easier to just refrain from killing them :p :rolleyes: ;)

The Law including the 10 commandments cannot be kept to God's standard as set forth by Jesus in Mat 5.

Attempting to keep the 10 commandments to the best of our ability is not wrong as long as we do not depend on our efforts for any part of our relationship with God.

Telling others that their relationship with God depends on law keeping is contrary to NT teaching.

I agree. Jesus coming as the propitiation for our sins was the worthy sacrifice needed to deliver us from the Old Law. We are now no longer subject under that law. Christ knows we as sinful men and women could not uphold the law as He did while he was on this Earth. But it is still in our best interest to try and obey the commandments God has given us. Christ said if we truly loved Him, we would keep His commandments, and it's a good reference to the ten.

How do we do this?

By following the law of moses. Or by Following the law of Christ?

is there a difference between int living our life trying to keep them to the best of our ability, and living our life in such a way in which by default we will not break the commands?

If there is, which would be a more empowering way to be seen as law keepers, not law breakers?

A Shabbat(sabbath) Judaism 101: Shabbat
Now that would probably be the highest compliment ive heard.
perhaps an elementary study on the Yoms(days and evenings) would be appropriate
1)Yom{rishon
2)Yom{sheini
3)Yom{shlishi
4)Yom{R'vi'i
5)Yom{chamishi
6)Yom{shishi
7)Shabbat
8)Yom{--------------}


Now i wonder who here remember what was said about giving a portion to seven and eight

If the law could have been kept, there would have been no need for Jesus Christ. The 10 commandments, IMHO, should be a guide for us to live by as well as the example Christ gave us.

The fact remains that only the Holy Spirit can enable us to do and to live as God wants us to.
