I have been sayiing the law is not gone, sand quoting Heb 10:16-16, now quote this telling me im wrong.
You frame all desire of obedience as "working"
If one has the SPirit of God changing their heart they will have the law in their heart and mind. That is heart AND mind. That means they will love in and think/meditate on it. Yet you say if one thinks about it, enjoys it, seeks to do it, its "working!!!!" SO do you propose people as holy spirit robots that have no control over themselves.
LOL, sems you don;t know what Paul is quoting from or you may have not quoted that. This shows the truth...
Galatians 3:12, “But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”
The actual text:
Leviticus 18:4-5, " 4 You shall follow my rules and keep my statutes and walk in them. I am the LORD your God. 5 You shall therefore keep my statutes and my rules; if a person does them, he shall live by them: I am the LORD.
Psalm 119:165, “Great peace have those loving YourLaw, And for them there is no stumbling-block..”
Midrashic foolishness. What is the stumbling stone according to what Paul is quoting?
Romans 9:32-33, " 32 Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, 33 as it is written, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”
Isaiah 8:11-15, " 11 For the LORD spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: 12 “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. 13 But the LORD of hosts, him you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he will become a sanctuary and a stone of offense and a rock of stumbling to both houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 And many shall stumble on it. They shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken.”
Isaiah 28:16-17, " 16 therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: ‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’ 17 And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plumb line; and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and waters will overwhelm the shelter.”
Psalms 118:19-22, " 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the LORD. 20 This is the gate of the LORD; the righteous shall enter through it. 21 I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
THe gate...the cornerstone is Jesus, for the most part the Jews did not accept Jesus, this is the stumbling block, not the Commands...But if one does not know the old testament they will not know how to seperate what the old testament says in dividing it from Paul's midrashic intrepratation.
Revelation 14:12-13, " 12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”
