As far as I know, the Law of Moses contains all the legal requirements imposed on Israel from Exodus 19:20 through the end of Deuteronomy. It was only given to Israel. No Non-Israelite has ever been obligated to keep any part of it.
---John.usa on 6/24/11


Its obvious that Francis is incapable of understanding the difference between obeying the law to make oneself righteous and obeying it out of love because Jesus has made us righteous already.

Honestly how many employers out there would even hire someone who refuses to work on Saturday?

And if doctors, paramedics, firemen and police obeyed the Saturday sabbath, who would you call for help when you needed it? Would you not think it ridiculous that you were helpless against any thieves, rapists and murderers who know the police wont come on Saturday because they are all off? Cmon! Think, Francis!

"It is lawful to do GOOD on the sabbath" - Jesus Christ

//And seventh dya adventist do tach that Michael the Arch angel is the same person as Jesus.// Francis

I realize this is from another blog, but its full.

Francis did you know that Jesus' name in Hebrew is the same as Joshua's?

Does that mean that Joshua was also the savior of the world since his name also means salvation?

Lucifer was also called the bright and morning star... just as Jesus was. Does that mean Jesus is Lucifer?

See how ridiculous this is...

God did not promise earthly blessings for obedience to the Law of Moses.

1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

It is not sexist. God is a God of order

1 Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman [is] the man, and the head of Christ [is] God.

yet both male and female are equal is salvation
---francis on 6/24/11




The entire Bible is for us "for our learning, but all scripture is not about us. We should never be so selfish as to think every promise in the book is ours.
one great blunder of this time is to begin the Church the body of Christ, on the day of pentacost in "times past" Acts 2.
---michael_e on 6/24/11


The Promises to Earthly Israel do not apply to the Church. God never promised the CHURCH any land.

God did not promise earthly blessings for obedience to the Law of Moses.

Joe Navy-- Is having different requirements for men and women sexist?
Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

What do YOU mean by "sexist"?
---Donna66 on 6/24/11


I think it is claer that her HAIR is given to her as a covering. And if COVERING trainslates to mean VEIL ,
then her HAIR is given to her as a veil.

1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

If you want an agruement on this, maybe one can be found on how LONG is LONG when it comes to hair for women, and how long is too long for men
---francis on 6/24/11


Ok, After reading the comment above about the whole bible being God breathed I have to ask. What about 1 Timothy 2:12? That can't be something God endorses. It's completely sexist.

1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

MAYBE NOT SHAVED, BUT HOW LONG IS LONG?

1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering.

Are you telling us that jesus ended our obedience to these:
1. Do not worship other gods.
2. Do not worship idols.
3. Do not misuse God's name.
4. Keep the Sabbath holy.
5. Honor your father & mother.
6. Do not murder.
7. Do not commit adultery.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not lie.
10. Do not covet.
and we are as free to commit adultery as we are free not to keep the sabbath?
---francis on 6/24/11


\\Why did you not answer my question? Where does the BIBLE say that a VEIL is required when oa woman prophesies?\\

I've already answered that question, but for your sake I will answer it again.

! Cor 11:5. The word here for covered means VEILED in the original Greek.

If hair is given for a covering, then men should shave their heads bald so they won't be covered when they pray or prophesy.

Now, will you encourage jerry to answer my question?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

francis 2: What you see as unconfessed sin, is not sin anymore concerning the topics you discussed. You haven't moved forward, you are still boasting in the letter of the law and not the law of the Spirit. Which indicates you promote the law over grace. "I will put My law in your mind and write them in your hearts" Heb. 8:10 in that He says, " A New Covenant" He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away" Heb. 8:13.
But you still believe it has not passed away, so you are still under the law and want everyone who is under Grace to be under the law. But none of us want to go back to the law. "Christ is the end of the Law" Rom. 10:4.
---Mark_V. on 6/24/11


francis,
1. You are wrong, Christians do keep the Sabbath, just not on Saturdays. Genuine believers are not restricted to diets, God told Peter through a voice "What God has cleansed you must not call common" Acts 10:15. Food doesn't defile a man but what comes out of him. God told him (v. 13) to kill and eat.
2. Everyone who sins breaks the law, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" That tells me no one can keep the law.
3. Believers do agree with God, they are under grace and not under the law.
You have a misunderstanding of the law. "Where is the boasting? (you boast in the law) It is excluded. By what Law? Of Works? No, but by the law of faith" Romans 3:27.
---Mark_V. on 6/24/11

Cluny: "The Devil knows the Bible inside and out. Does it do him any good?"

You bet it does!

He uses the bible against christians who don't know the bible. In order for him to deceive as many people as possible, including christians, he must know the bible inside and out. He has the ability to blind christians using bible verses, twisting them to his advantage. Because this is the last generation, he is working hard using all means possible to corrupt christian's minds especially using today's technology. He weakens the minds of christians using not only the bible itself, but the economy, losing one's job, and technology.
---Steveng on 6/23/11


---Mark_V. on 6/23/11
2 things
1: As i said many people here do not keep the sabbath day holy as commandmended by God, and they claim that their act is not a sin. Same with their diets. I know this is unconfessed sin because people continue to post that they endulge in them
2 a: i do not see any text in the bible that says we CANNOT keep the law, it says we have not
2 b: We all sin, but as indicated above some LIVE IN THIS SIN, do not repent, and rather than agree with god that they have sinned, they deny that the act is a sin
---francis on 6/23/11


francis, the only ones I have heard say they are sinless, or the only one's that seem to suggest that sin is no longer sin to them, but I am very much against anyone been sinless.
You say many have unconfess sins, how do you know that? How can you possibly know who has confess and who has not? If someone answered you and said they don't need God, Christ, or to confess then you could answer them individually. But don't assume things you know nothing about from others. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God so no one has the right to judge another believer. By throwing the law at others, you suggest you can keep all of the laws, but no one can, not even you.

The word says Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and for ever more.
He is the manifestation of the word and is suitable for reproof, doctrine and instruction unto every generation.
---Del on 6/23/11


Cluny: For a guy who likes to pass himself off as a great intellectual and Bible scholar, it seems strange that all you can come up with is personal attacks and denomination bashing. And, after each evil attack on a fellow Christian, you finish with "Glory to Jesus Christ" as if that gives your satanic methods legitimacy. If you want to glorify Christ, why not emulate His methods of dealing with others? Why not also embrace the Old Testament, since He claimed it was all about Him? If He believed it and you don't, then just how does that glorify Him?
---jerry6593 on 6/23/11


Leslie, who ever suggested what you said? How do you know what one feels inside? How can you come to that conclusion without knowing what we feel or think or even believe in at any perticular time? You make assumptions on what you think everyone else is feeling. It is coming from within you. I have not heard one person claim they do not need God, or Christ after been saved. Not one. And who ever said that I was good enough to do the law by myself? I never have. And with all of that you compare me and others with the devil. Now, from where are all this sinful ideas coming from? From within you. Just look what is coming from your heart and your mouth. It is very ugly.

\\Christians must know the bible inside and out.\\

Why? The Devil knows the Bible inside and out. Does it do him any good?

This verges on gnosticism if you press it too far.

The Gospel is not about what you know, but WHOM you know.

Whether EGW was bald, I do not know, francis, but the Bible says that women should wear a VEIL when they pray or phophesy.

If hair means covering, then Christian men should shave their heads bald.

Glory to Jesus Christ.
---Cluny on 6/22/11


Anyone smart enough to really know the Bible "inside and out" would have to be very intelligent. Anyone that intelligent wouldn't take the time to do it.

Anyone who claims to know the Bible "inside and out" would have to be delusional, or have a photographic memory and be able to recall the words, but still be stuck at putting meaning to them.

But assuming that there are such people, do you think they would agree on all questions of theology using the Bible as their basis.
---atheist on 6/22/11


Christians must know the bible inside and out. We must know it from the beginning to the end. We must preach the word, be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. We must know the bible so that we can know the difference between true prophets and false prophets, true teachers and false teachers. If we only pick and choose parts of the bible, we set ourselves up to be fooled by Satan by the things we don't know. We must put on the whole armor of God, not just parts of it. This is the last generation where the truth is truly hard to know.

Mark_V. the Bible says ALL HAVE SINNED. Which means that everyone has trangressed the law of God at one pointin time or the other. But I have asked God to forgive my sins, and when or if i sin I do not deny that I have sinned. What I have seen here is that many are LIVING IN UNREPENTED SIN. Rather than confess their sin, and repent, they deny that the act is a sin, claiming that the NT, or Jesus has bdened the act no longer a sin.
But what they say cannot be found in scripture, and God will forever hate sin.
So confess your sins rather than deny them.

Mark V. - I am NOT suggesting that at all, infact the opposite. I know that I have BROKEN ALL of God's law, that's why I need Jesus. The problem is that you and others think that God's law is done away with, so therefore you do not need God at all, because you are good enough to do it yourself - You are self-righteous and prideful (which was Lucifer's (the devil's) problem when he got kicked out of Heaven). In other words, you are no better than the devil.
---Leslie on 6/22/11


Leslie, are we to understand that you have kept all of the law? Are you saying that Jesus was not the only One that could keep it, but that you can too?

Circumcision was a sign given to abraham and all those who accepted the promise of God by faith. the promise was that all nations would be blessed in abraham seed. the seed is Jesus. now that the promise has been kept, there was no longer a need for the covenant sign.
neither jew no Gentile needed to be circumcised after the death of Jesus.

Romans 4:11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which [he had yet] being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be NOT CIRCUMCISED, that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

Francis - Acts chapter 15 says v5 from Pharisses "The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to keep the law of Moses."
but Paul corrected them in v20 "Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood." These verses were said to make it easier to follow Jesus instead of the 100s of laws in the book of Moses.

Leslie: Great posts! Many Christians don't seem to realize that Jesus IS the God of the Old Testament as well as the New. He constantly quoted from the OT and never taught that any of it was obsolete.

Micha, great points and passages you gave. Commands for Israel are many times not applicable to the new believers in Christ. Even some of the promises are not for us. The best way is to ask the question, who is the passage speaking to? Is the teaching normative or intended for specific individuals? To who is the passage directed? Promises and commands are usually directed to one of three groups, national Israel, Old Testament believers, or New Testament believers? Normative promises and commands directed to New Testament believers are those most likely to apply to contemporary Christians. Some of the promises and commands directed at Old Testament believers also apply depending on context and content.

Haz27 - You are partially right, but mostly wrong. Jesus gave us ALL the commandments that God gave us because He IS the law made flesh (Jn 1:1). Jesus also told us that if we break any of God's commands or teach others to do the same, we are LEAST in His kingdom (Matt. 5:17-19) and that if we love Christ we will obey God's commands (Jn 14:15,21,23,24). God says that 1 Jn. 2:3-6 applies to EVERYONE, NOT just the AntiChrist. You have PROVEN with 100% accuacy my point that anyone that does not want to obey God's commands does NOT belong to God and is NOT a Christian, but wanting to do it their own way and not God's. You and everyone like you is merly a fan of Christ NOT a follower.

Leviticus 4 and 5 talk about sin and how to deal with sin. Of importance to christians is sin through ignorance and sin through presumption. Which tells us that we are not to sin willfully ( see Hebrew 10:26, 2 peter 2 20-22) It also tells us how God forgives sins.
And ofcourse exodus 31:14 tells us to keep the sabbath day holy. Very easy to apply

2 Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

However, just because we can learn from how God dealt with someone else, does not mean the instructions/promises that person received from God apply specificaly to us. Nor does it mean that observations/comments/recomendations made by any given individual relates to us or is even good advice for that matter.

For Christians Jesus has freed us rom many of the rules example eating pork, tattoos, wearing cloth of 2 fabrics, leaving for 7 days due to rash, etc. These rules were for the Israelites in their time to protect themselves from diseases etc. The intent does still apply of eating healthy, being unique in Christ, (many people of other religions at that time had tattoos), separating yourself when you have a cold so that you do not spread diseases.

Christians aren't under the Old Covenant of the Old Testament. That doesn't mean we discord the teaching in the Old Testament. In fact the Bible says it was our school master/teacher bringing us to the New Testament Covenant in Christ. It shows us how God relates to humankind. The Handwriting of the ordinances of the OT were nailed to the cross with Christ. We must know the OT to see what God did for us by sending Christ. Every Covenant in OT was sealed with blood. Christs blood spilled to give us the New Covenant free from the rituals and ordinances of OT. The principles of the OT apply but we obey and live by the New Testament Gospel of Christ.
