Read the book of Galatians Hizikyah. Legalism adds to the perfect work of Christ. Christians are not under the law. To teach otherwise is false teaching.
Just some thoughts from God's Word for your statement above........
Christians are not under the law. To teach otherwise is false teaching.
(2) Also what is a Christian in your view? Isn't a Christian those that believe and follow the Word of God through love?
(3) Is someone professing to be a Christian who is living a life in unrepentant sin a Christian in your view? I know you will not answer these questions as you have not answered the posts and scriptures and questions I have provided already.
(1) What does it mean to be under the Law according to God's Word.....................?
To be "Under the Law" means to be convicted by the Law of God as a sinner because we do not know what sin is without God’s Law because sin is the transgression of God’s Law and it gives us a knowledge of what sin is and leads us to Jesus (1 John 3:4; Rom 3:20; Rom 7:7; Gal 3:24)
"ALL WHO SIN WITHOUT THE LAW SHALL PERISH WITHOUT THE LAW, and ALL WHO SIN UNDER THE LAW will be judged by the law. FOR NOT THE HEARERS OF THE LAW ARE JUST BEFORE GOD, but the DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED."
To be "under the Law" means to be guilty of sin...............
Now we know that what things soever the law says, it says to them who are UNDER THE LAW: that every mouth may be stopped, and ALL THE WORLD MAY BECOME GUILTY BEFORE GOD.
What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are ALL UNDER SIN
None righteous no not one, all are under the law as sinners. God's Law is the knowledge of good and evil, sin and righteousness and is the great standard in the judgement.....
So this is why it is correct to say Christians are not "Under the Law" because they are not practicing sin..........
John 8:31-32, Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:34, Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.
John 8:36, If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
1 John 3:3
3, And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.4, Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5, And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6, WHOSOEVER ABIDES IN HIM SINS NOT: WHOSOEVER SINS (practices as in unrepentant) HAS NOT SEEN HIM OR KNOWN HIM. 7, Little children, let no man deceive you: HE THAT DOES RIGHTEOUSNESS IS RIGHTEOUS EVEN AS HE IS RIGHTEOUS. 8, HE THAT COMMITS SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works (SIN) of the devil.
Someone living a life in known unrepentant sin breaking any of God's commandments is not a Christian according to God's Word knowing the love of God and needs to be born again (1 John 3:9).........
If we break one of God's commandments we stand guilty before God of breaking all of God's Law (James 2:8-12)
For by grace are you saved through faith (alone) and not of yourself it is a gift of God and not of works lest any man should boast. If your faith does not have the fruit of obedience it is dead being alone and you are still in your sins.......
The 4th commandment, which is God's command to remember the 7th Day weekly Sabbath is one of the 10 (Exodus 20 :8-11) just like the commandments of stealing, lying and adultery.............
Sunday Worship is a teaching and tradition of man handed down from the Roman Catholic Church to the mainstream Churches of today that breaks the commandments of God.
Jesus says; If we break the commandments of God by following the traditions of man over the Word of God we are not following God (Matthew 15:3-9)
Who should we believe God or man? Who should we follow, the traditions of man that break the commandments of God or the Word of God?
