Once I was saved, I became dead to the law if I had ever been under the law, which I had not done because I am not Jewish. No, the law is not for Christians. The Holy Spirit is for Christians. Will the Holy Ghost make us contradict the 10 commandments? Yes, every day is sacred to me now, not just the Sabbath (Saturday). Look, most of the laws, not just the 10 Commandments, had great worldly scientific support behind their observance. But Paul tells those who try to keep the law that if you break a law, you are to blame for everything. Can we save murderers, adulterers, liars and thieves? Yes, they can. Therefore, the law is no longer applicable to Christians, because we died with Christ and are free from the law. Jesus is right, He did not take away the law, He took us away, or at least saved the Jews from the punishment of the law. So why do we have confusion?? Because the law makes sense. Of course, this makes sense because it was given by God and is a legitimate roadmap for living a life without consequences. But when you are saved, you will be sealed with His Spirit and kept in salvation.
Does this mean that we will then throw the Old Testament overboard? No, certainly not. A function of the mind is to lead us to the whole truth. Now, when we read the scriptures, we do not read them to see what laws we must obey. We read it to learn more about God`s character. When you read the Bible, you see everywhere what God approves of and what He does not approve. You will see God punishing other people for certain actions. Reading the Bible, including the 10 commandments, allows you to let the Holy Spirit guide your daily life. When you encounter a certain situation, your knowledge of God`s character in your life should allow the Holy Spirit to lead you down the straight and narrow path. Not because we are still under the law, because we died with Christ and now live in Him, by the grace of God. Do the 10 Commandments help people be saved? Yes, but it is not necessary. People need to be aware that they have sinned against God, so they undoubtedly need salvation, and the 10 commandments are great for that.
But technically, as Paul says in Romans, the law was for the Jews, and the unreaken Jews should still keep ALL the law today. Christians must obey the Holy Spirit in ALL things today, and we should not be surprised to find that the Holy Spirit still does not want us to kill, steal, mention, etc. God has not changed. But God has changed us. The role of the law is to administer the confederation. Laws forbid things that destroy a relationship with God (for example. B worship of other gods). The law sets the direction of what should be a loving response to God and says how to reap all the benefits of the relationship.
From a certain point of view, the promises formalized by the covenant were unconditional; But from an individual`s point of view, the benefits could be lost through disobedience. Disobedience does not automatically invalidate a covenant, any more than a husband`s rudeness to a woman he has praised invalidates his marriage covenant. But disobedience obscures the relationship and can reduce its benefits. In the wilderness, an entire generation of Israelites lost their covenant advantages (the promised land) through disobedience, but the covenant continued. Romans 8:3-4 ESV For God did what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son to the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh so that the just requirement of the law could be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Finally, there may be some or many who misunderstand/misapply Romans 3:10 through man`s erroneous teachings and traditions; There is no fair, right, none? Yes, the scriptures say this, but if we continue to read the following verses, we will understand the context of that verse. VERSES 11 AND 12: THERE IS NO ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS, THERE IS NO ONE WHO SEEKS GOD; EVERYONE TURNED TO THE SIDE, TOGETHER THEY BECAME USELESS; THERE IS NO ONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE. But what do the following verses 13–18 reveal? 13. „HIS NECK IS AN OPEN GRAVE, WITH HIS TONGUES YOU CONTINUE TO DECEIVE“, „THE POISON OF ASPEN IS UNDER HIS LIPS“; 14.
„WHOSE MOUTH IS FULL OF CURSE AND BITTERNESS“; 15. „THEIR FEET QUICKLY SHED BLOOD.16. DESTRUCTION AND MISERY ARE ON THEIR WAY, 17. AND THEY DID NOT KNOW THE WAY TO PEACE. 18. „THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES. When we see friends, these verses, when seen in context, describe an unbeliever and a believer who lives in sin; it is hostility towards God! Now let`s compare these verses with Proverbs 6:16-19:16. There are six things that Jehovah hates, yes, seven, that are anathema to Him: 17.
Naughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, 18. A heart that develops evil plans, feet that run quickly towards evil, 19. A false witness who tells lies and someone who spreads conflicts between brothers. Once again, we see personal responsibility and responsibility to the Messiah and He alone. Remember what JESUS said to the Pharisees; Luke 5:30–32; 30. The Pharisees and their scribes began to complain about His disciples, saying, „Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?“ 31. And Jesus answered them: „It is not those who are well who need a doctor, but those who are sick. 32. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. Jesus said simply and clearly that there were righteous people in HIS time. not much. Luke 1:5–6; 5.In the time of Herod, king of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah from the partition of Abijah; and he had a wife of Aaron`s daughters, and her name was Elizabeth.
6. They were both righteous in God`s sight and walked without reproach in all the Lord`s commandments and requirements. Thus.. Could Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth be the ones referred to in Romans 3:10? Yes, we are right 🙂, and there is very little evidence in the Bible that the early church considered Sunday special. Jesus had NO new laws. He implicitly held the Torah. otherwise, he would have been considered a sinner, and John says we should follow his example. 1 John 2:6 (NKJV) 6 Whoever claims to live in Him must walk like Jesus. We see something very similar with verbs that describe a bad reaction to the law (see Figure 1c). In any case, Israel`s disobedience to the law— that is, its inability to observe what the Lord has asked, manifests itself. These additions underscore God`s concern for those who work under the authority of others.
Not only do you need to rest, but those who work for you—slaves, other Israelites, even animals—must rest. When you „remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt,“ it reminds you not to take your own rest as a special privilege, but to bring rest to others as the Lord has brought you. It doesn`t matter what religion they follow or what they want to do over time. They are workers, and God asks us to rest those who work. We may be used to thinking about keeping the Sabbath to rest, but how much do we think about resting those who work to serve us? Many people work at times that interfere with their relationships, sleep patterns, and social opportunities to make life more comfortable for others. Modern workplaces and societies are no less susceptible to bribery, corruption and prejudice than the old Israel. According to the United Nations, the greatest obstacle to economic growth in less developed countries is the lack of respect for the impartial rule of law.  In places where corruption is rampant, it may be impossible to earn a living, travel around the city, or stay at peace without paying bribes. This law seems to recognize that in general, those who have the power to demand bribes are more to blame than those who agree to pay them, because the ban is against accepting bribes, not against payment. Yet anything Christians can do to reduce corruption – whether on the donor or recipient side – is a contribution to the „just decisions“ (Dt 16:18) that are sacred to the Lord.
(For a more in-depth discussion of the economic applications of the rule of law, see „Land ownership and property rights“ in paragraphs 26-27; 36:1-12 above. Paul regularly thinks of the law in relation to his commandments, and this is evident because he speaks of those who sin by breaking the law, of the need to do what the law says, and to rely on the law and be taught in the law (Rom 2:17, 18, 20). When Paul speaks of righteousness (Romans 3:21; 9:31; 10:4; Gal 2:21; 3:11; 5:4; Phil 3:6-9) or inheritance (Rom 4:13,14,16; Gal 3:18) Since he has not been attained by the law, he has in mind to do what the law commands. Most scholars now agree that „works of law“ refer to acts required by law (Romans 3:20, 28; Gal 2:16; 3:2, 5; 10), as well as the expression „the law of the commandments“ (Eph 2:15). The law is understood as a set of commandments summarized in the Covenant of Moses that came at a particular time in history (Romans 5:13; 7:4, 6; 9:4; 1 Corinthians 9:20, 21; 15,56; Gal. 2:19 ; 3:17, 19, 21), and the phrase „under the law“ also fits here (Romans 6:14, 15; 7:1; Gal 3:23–24; 4:4, 5; 5:18). In Hebrews, the word law always refers to the commandments of the Mosaic Law and the Mosaic Covenant (Hebrews 7:5, 11, 12, 19, 28; 8:4; 9:19, 22; 10:1, 8, 28), emphasizing the precepts for priests and sacrifices that are offered. Russell, it`s absolutely fascinating.
