Donna, I agree with you sis. Without Torah we are without the means to even know what God sees and sin and unrighteousness, or what he see as righteous behavior. It defines sin, it is our "instruction in righteousness."

This is why I fail at times to understand why so many do not see Paul's writings in that light. Remember, when he said all scripture was given by the inspiration of God, there was no NT then. He was speaking ONLY about Torah and the Prophets because that was the ONLY "scripture" in existence when he said that. While I believe Paul is inspired, his words were not "scripture" at that point.

Kathr, very good example.
---MarkV. on 8/14/09

Our Lord can be trusted to take care of us no matter how inperfect we are. If we sin again He will still forgive us through our Mediator, who knows we are not perfect yet.
---MarkV. on 8/13/09

Put another way. Does a twenty dollar bill lose it's value because it gets wrinkled or goes throught the washing machine, or gets dirty? Nop! It's still worth $20.00 no matter what.

Does your own child lose it's value when he is naughty? Conditional love there?

We are LOVED unconditionally, even when we get spanked!
---kathr4453 on 8/14/09

Ken_Rank -- The law is still needed for men to define sin. That has not changed. The court has changed, however, because we now have an attorney to represent us. (Still the best policy is to be a law abiding citizen.)
---Donna66 on 8/13/09

Donna>>The Bible itself states that the purpose of the law is to make us aware of sin.

>>Well stated. Grace is given to a person when there is something they can not measure up to. We can't measure up to perfection, to a perfect walk, and thus God gives us grace through faith in Yehoshua. But does that abrogate that which we do not measure up to? If I got a speeding ticket and the judge showed me grace and tossed the case out... does that abrogate speeding? Is speeding now done away with?

Matt. 5:17-19 has Messiah's own words upholding Torah.
---Ken_Rank on 8/13/09

I believe that our belief that Torah is done away with comes from simple errors in interpretation. So let's put that theory to the test. Any of you can take part... post one verse each that to you shows beyond doubt that Torah is dead and gone.

---Ken_Rank on 8/13/09

Jerry, in your parable,
You have a good dad, that said I will pay the ticket. And He also said, I will always take care of you no matter what.
If He goes back on his word, then he cannot be trusted.
Our Lord can be trusted to take care of us no matter how inperfect we are. If we sin again He will still forgive us through our Mediator, who knows we are not perfect yet.
---MarkV. on 8/13/09

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Jesus came to keep sin from working death in us by our carnal mind : Saving us from what the Law could not do through the weakness of the flesh. Being carnally minded, we were sold under sin taking occasion within the Commandment of the Law to wrought in us all manner of eager desires, to deceive & slay us.

The Spirit of the Law is Holy, Just & Good, and has prophetically reined in Christ, so that now through the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus we're made free from the law of sin & death : Transforming us into being spiritually minded which is Life & Peace, and is why Jesus came, so that this Righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled in us.

Refer. Rom.7:7-14,8:2-7,12:1-3
---ShawnM.T. on 8/12/09

The Bible itself states that the purpose of the law is to make us aware of sin.

Rom 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law, no flesh shall be justified in His sight, FOR BY THE LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN.
Paul calls the law our "schoolmaster"
(Galatians 3:24)

The gentiles were not under the Law... but they were not without guilt.

Rom 1:20- 21 For from the creation of the world the invisible things of Him are clearly seen, being understood through the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.
For when they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God, nor were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened
---Donna66 on 8/12/09

Gentiles were never under the Law to begin with.
---Linda on 9/5/08

>>With respect Linda, I disagree. When the Israelites went on the Exodus, non-Israelites went with them, gentiles. The Torah was for them as well:

Exo 12:49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

Also, when Torah was given, it was given as a light to the world. Something the nations (non-Israel) would look to:

Deu 4:6 Keep therefore and do them, for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

---Ken_Rank on 8/12/09

For some reason over the centuries, Christianity has formulated the notion that Torah, God's Law, is the burden we are free from. With David calling it a "delight," you might understand why I see a disconnect here?

Torah in reality is no different than the Laws of your own country, state, or community. Torah however, is the intended set of Laws to govern Israel, though they have been under secular rule since Babylon.

The burden is sin, is brings about death, a separation from God. This, and MAN MADE religious laws are what Messiah did away with, he earned the right to perfect whom he wills through his actions.

---Ken_Rank on 8/12/09

Jesus came to save us from the WRATH of God to come upon all! Those in Christ aree saved from the WRATH to come!
---kathr4453 on 8/11/09

once with the son, always with the son
once with salvation, always salvation
once fear god, always fear god

sin does not negate salvation, torment and anguish exist even in knowing ones salvation

our existance is not flawed, but rather inherent by God's design / plan

Only through our own suffering can we come to know the truth of salvation.

Even knowing the truth, our suffering in this life shall never cease.

We suffer the lost soles of mankind, it is with us all the days in this lives.
---wade on 7/2/09

TO put this simply. God gave it to me the otherday. Now pay attention and get it. The law is a have to, grace is a want to. The answer to your question is this. Not everyone will be saved from their sins, because no one deserves it. As far as the law, sin, question goes, I have already answered it.

I payed attention and you did not follow the truth of the Law defines sin. Those who teach salvation by works or by the law teach the law is a have to so to save yourself. But Moses taught grace in looking to JESUS by sacrifice.

Grace is a want to is true. We want to live like JESUS and avoide sin. We want to love GOD which is what the first four commandments are about and love others which is the last six.
---Samuel on 9/5/08

Dead to both. Besides, Gentiles were never under the Law to begin with.

Then you need to contact the Way of the Master missionaries. For they teach that the law is to tell everyone they are sinners. If Gentiles are not under law then they are all saved and going to heaven because they cannot sin.

The law condemns everyone for all have sinned. Romans 3 it does not and cannot save. JESUS came to save us from sin.
Mat 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

That should end the question.
---Samuel on 9/5/08

1) Law defines sin.

2) Sin prevents spiritual peace in our conscience.

Even though The Lord abolished the sin laws...Ephesians 2:15...
"by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace"

...His PURPOSE was not to bring spiritual peace, but that we should learn from His spirit to make a clear division between right and wrong (Luke 12:51) as with a sword ("sword of the spirit", Ephesians 6:17) so there is no middle ground between the two ("no variation or shadow", James 1:17) that the change from good to evil is clear and abrupt.

We are to live the PERFECT law (James 1:25 and 2:12).

---james on 5/29/08

The flesh can never be perfect...we live in a body of sin and death. We are made righteous through HIM alone. Not by might or by power, but by HIS SPIRIT. THE BORN AGAIN HAS NO SIN. The flesh will always be sinful.
---duane on 5/28/08

Amen jerry6593, great parable! I agree 100%.
Just because we're forgiven for breaking the law, doesn't mean the law is done away with.
If it was so easy to remove God's law, or if the law was so un-necessary, perhaps God would not have been required to give His only Son to be tortured and die for its transgression.
I think the fact that Jesus had to die is the greatest testimony of the eternal, unchanging, Holy nature of the law.
---Todd1 on 5/28/08

Life in the spirit enables us to live free from the law or principle of sin and death.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Accepting Jesus we are no longer under the law of sin and death. We have eternal life. John 3:15 The sin of this world leads to death. After the fleshly death where do you want to find yourself. We accept that Jesus died on the cross and rose again. The law he fullfilled was the sacrifical law. His blood covers our sin as long as we have accepted him as Lord.

James, although sin started with the rebellion of Lucifer, Jesus death on the Cross will never cover the sin of the fallen angels. So Jesus didn't come to save angels from sin or the Law.

All in perspective to the question...Thesselonians states clearly, the WRATH of God is coming on those who rejected the love of the Gospel that they may be saved....from what?????
---kathr4453 on 5/27/08

Jesus came to save His people from their sins. However, we must stay in prayer and thanksgiving. It is my and your duty to do so, if you are truly His.
---catherine on 5/26/08

Can I make a correction? Sin started with Satan, not man. Jesus came to testify to the truth. Anyway that is what He said He was born to do. He only made it possible to be sanctified because He also was sanctified. It appears as though we still have something to do if the word "overcome" means anything.

---kathr4453 on 5/25/08

The answer to the first part of the question (law) is " For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." The second part of the question (sin) is answered in John 1:29,"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

If the law is HOLY then why do you break it? Is God watching will he punish you YES to both. Same questions, but to the powers of the law of the land does it matter yes and no, until you get Caught.
---Emcee on 5/24/08

Off the top of my head I'd say He saved mankind from sin, AND the CURSE of the law (which is the punishment for breaking it.) All in all, I think they are one and the same, since sin is transgression of the law. :-) God's law is called "holy", so I dont think we need to be saved from it.

In answer to both questions...Jesus came to do away with sin, therefore, HE fulfilled the Law for you, so you could be led by the Spirit and NOT the Law. Sin is transgression of the Law. Where there is no law, there is no transgression. Rejoice...We are now saved by grace through faith.

---Emcee on 5/23/08

The law is intended as a "guide" if you will to show ones need of a savior. Jesus died to take our punishment that we deserved because of our sins. Think of it this way, your in court, you have a $10,000 fine that you couldn't pay, the "judge" can't let you go till justice is satisfied, Jesus steped in and paid it for you so you could go free.

Jesus can't be saving us from the "law" if the New Covenant was intended to write the law on the hearts of God's people.
---AG on 5/9/08

Neither. Well, He came to save His own people from their sins. The laws of God He did not come to do away with. Man is always upholding man's laws, but never upholding God's laws. Infact, man is doing everything with the help of Satan, to do away with God's laws. And what a shame that is. This country shall be destroyed.>>You don't expect to mess with God's laws and get away with it, do you? You can't be that STUPID.>>Can you?

#3 God knew He would have to do it all and make it work regardless of what temptation we might fall into. Our sins, after we are saved, may rob us of our rewards, but they can never rob us of our salvation. Amos 3:3 says two can't walk together unless they agree. After you are born again, your Spirit man is always in agreement with God, and your flesh will never agree with God, but then God is not walking with your flesh or old man, God reckons him dead.
---Debbie_Jo on 4/16/08

#1 Mima is absolutely correct. When Jesus said - It is finished - that means that it is totally finished. There is nothing left for us to do but believe. God, in His infinite wisdom and knowledge, knew that man was unable to walk the straight and narrow, He knew that man could not free himself from sin and could not be expected to live a righteous life. So Jesus Christ gave birth to Himself in our heart, giving us His divine righteousness.

#2 He did not make over our old sinful nature, but instead created a new race of sinless, righteous, holy and heavenly people. When we are born again we become a part of that heavenly race. Those of you who believe that you can lose your salvation are putting emphasis on yourself rather than on God. We can't keep ourself, we can't save ourself and if God had to depend on any of us to do the right thing and live a sinless life, no body would get to heaven.
---Debbie_Jo on 4/16/08

Mima, Hebrews 10 makes it clear that you cannot treat the Son of God as an unholy thing. Yes, God died for sinners, but he then says 'Go, and sin no more.' The Bible says 'God will not be mocked'. If you think you can walk with God and walk in sin together, forget it. This is a Catholic heresy.

Gordon, you are correct I believe. Thanks for further developing on the theme.
---frances008 on 4/16/08

Frances008, So True. We Saints are to walk the Straight and Narrow Path of Holiness. If any saint thinks that some sins are "not a problem with GOD" for them to live in, WITHOUT REPENTING OF THEM and think they're headed for Heaven because "once they're Saved, they're ALWAYS Saved" will hit the Gates of Hell like a brick wall. Judgment begins at GOD's own House, with His own people. NO ONE, who lives in continual sin, be they lost or "saved" will EVER enter the Pearly Gates.
---Gordon on 4/16/08

This statement,"Those who believe in Jesus are justified and forgiven of all sins up to that moment. Any sin they do in the future has to be put under the blood of the Lamb." Is exactly what Jimmy Swaggart used to teach, today, of course he talks of grace knowing full well that he is still saved after his misadventure. Notice it is the individual that puts his sin under the blood. Thereby denying the efficacy of Christ's sacrifice. The sacrifice was only good up until a certain moment.

Jesus came to fulfil the Law with its requirements that sin be put to death. Those who believe in Jesus are justified and forgiven of all sins up to that moment. Any sin they do in the future has to be put under the blood of the Lamb. There is no forgiveness IMHO without the fruit of repentance which is a changed life, so death bed repentance is not really something you should depend on. The law remains as a measure to show us the light from the dark. We are expected to do MORE than law requires.

From both. Because of Jesus we are no longer under the law, but grace. We do have a sin-nature in our flesh, but we have the Holy Spirit in us so that we can overcome sin.
We have redemption through His blood, not works of the law. (Ephesians 1:7)

JESUS (YAHUSHUA) came to save from SIN and from Eternal Damnation in the Lake of Fire. Someone who is Born Again is freed from the Mosaic Laws (600+ Ceremonial Laws), but, ARE to live by the 10 Commandments, which hang on the Two Greatest Commands, Loving GOD and then your neighbour as yourself. In the 10 Commandments one sees that the first 4 deal with loving GOD, the last 6, with loving your neighbour as yourself. YAHUSHUA came to FULFILL the 10 Laws, not abolish them.

(1) John the Baptist said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" (in Gospel of John 1:29) Jesus takes away "the sin" which makes us able to do the sin-s. The Holy Spirit's power of love CURES us of this sin so we become more and more naturally immune to Satan's sin-sick stuff. So, yes, Jesus came to save us from our sin which makes us available to how Satan's spirit (Ephesians 2:2) has us sin for pleasure and then suffer emotional pain, "later".
