What Is The Perfect Law

Does anybody care about the PERFECT law?...or do you only care about fulfilling what the religious teachers tell you???

......(this is a supreme test of faith).

The PERFECT law means that the commandments ARE DEAD and gone......and it is a LAW (a mandate law, IT IS NOT an option).

Correct mostly. But many forget the Sabbath. Which is easy. I just believe we need to keep that one also. But love shows who is saved. There is a son about those who don't love their neighbor. Google it.

It's not that the Ten Commandments were "done away with". It's that they are no longer necessary. If we obey "love God" and "love your neighbor", you're ALREADY obeying the Ten.

Also, remember that the Ten Commandments were given by God to Israel via Moses. They (and the rest of the laws in Leviticus, etc.) were given ONLY to Israel, not to the rest of the world. Of course, there are a lot of universal laws that are true without needing to be spelled out individually (e.g. don't murder, don't steal, etc.), which are explicitly spelled out in 10C, but again, anyone who loves their neighbor won't be doing those kinds of things.
---StrongAxe on 10/1/22

If the law is perfect why work to get rid of it? The Commandments are part of the perfect law.

The law is based on love. Those who love others will not murder them.

So all of the Ten Commandments are not done away with. Those who love GOD and love others die to self daily and live in love of GOD and love of others.

Not everyone CAN exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. It only manifests through those who are BORN AGAIN, via being crucified with Christ and raised up a new creature. All other fruit is PLASTIC, purchased at Wally Mart and scotched taped on. That's WHY you don't see many walking in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:22-25

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

The Perfect law OF LIBERTY is that we have been set free from sin and death, have been raised up together with Christ A NEW CREATURE inlawed to Christ. Galatians 2:20-21 explain this perfectly. The Law isn't our life ....CHRIST IS OUR LIFE. Christ IN you...THE HOPE OF GLORY. COLOSSIANS 1:24-27. COLOSSIANS 3:1-4.

MEW, You tend to teach that we lead and the Lord follows. But it's the other way around. Job was a faithful man. God knew Jobs heart and trusted his faithfulness through sufferings.

We don't jump out of our comfort zone and the Lord follows.

We don't follow FALSE teachers , but if we do by mistake, the Lord will discipline us. And if being disciplined teaches us not to follow after NEW AND DIFFERENT teachings, then the Lord has done a marvelous work in us.

Stop shaming and intimidating and gaslighting believers here who question your teachings.
---kathr4453 on 8/29/22

Sometimes it is the exact opposite of what you said (FEAR is HUMAN NATURE, but God wants us to shed human nature and put on the GODLY NATURE).

Stop HIDING in your comfort zone...(the Lord is your shepherd and you shall NOT FEAR.....NO FEAR).so what this is the valley, its only a SHADOW.Psalm 23.

Be bold and be someone the Lord can Job (God bragged to satan about Job).

Do not be scared of taking new information into consideration (perfect love casts out WHAT??).

If you have perfect love and if you have an all powerful and gracious Lord,....WHY DO YOU FEAR? (are you trying to shame God?).

Sometimes, people reject a message because the message is true, and the people are stiff-necked.
On the other hand, sometimes people reject a message because they are wise, and the message is wrong or heretical. Unfortunately, people who bring messages usually assume they are right, and that all those who reject the message are wrong - and rarely ever consider that they THEMSELVES may be wrong, and the message they are bringing is wrong.

This is self-delusion. We are warned against this. We are told to test every spirit to see if it is from God. We are told to use discernment, to "search the scriptures daily to see if these things be so", and not be carried away on every wind of doctrine.

MEW, The ONLY DREEDOM comes through the cross, when we identify with Jesus in death and resurrection life. It's all in Roman's 6-8.

There is oy one way to FREEDOM, and it's through Jesus Christ.

Jesus pointed out the Two Most Important Laws: love God, and love your neighbor. If you keep the first, you don't NEED separate rules to tell you to avoid worshiping other gods, worshiping idols, or taking God's name in vein. Note that when asked what the most important laws were, he didn't quote the Ten Commandments.

If you keep the second, you don't NEED separate rules to tell you to avoid murder, adultery, theft, perjury, and jealousy, and to respect your parents.

All of these things were wrong long before Moses received the tablets, and they will continue to be wrong even to those to whom The Law does not apply.

ax: If there is no law, then there is no SIN, since:

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

---jerry6593 on 8/27/22

MEW: "The 10 COMMANDMENTS are no longer in force, they have been ABOLISHED and DESTROYED"

Jesus disagrees with you:

Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

1Jn 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

---jerry6593 on 8/27/22

The Ten Commandments have not been destroyed. If they had than lying, murder, coveting, stealing and adultery would no longer be sins.

But Paul says they are still sins. Read Romans 6. . Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. 1 John 3:4 whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. The Old Covenant is gone. Not the laws of love.

We no longer NEED the Ten Commandments to tell us what not to do - because if we love God, we already won't have any other gods before him, we won't take his name in vain, and we won't worship graven images.

If we love our neighbors, we already won't kill them, steal from them, lie about them, or cheat on them.

And there are many other bad things that we also shouldn't do that aren't explicitly mentioned in the Ten Commandments, but loving God and our neighbor will make sure we don't do them anyway.
---StrongAxe on 8/24/22


The 10 COMMANDMENTS are no longer in force, they have been ABOLISHED and DESTROYED (along with the ordinances that were given by Moses).

Ephesians 2:15 by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances

Hebrews 2:14 through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil,

Fear of the unknown is a very important survival instinct. This is because all creatures (including human) have a much better chance of navigating problems and dangers in areas where they are familiar, than areas where they are not.

People who believe everything they hear uncritically are very gullible, and can easily be swept away on every wind of doctrine. We are told not to do that - but instead, to "test the spirits, to see if they are from God". Paul praised the Bereans, because they didn't just accept what he told them at face value - instead, they "searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so".

You told Bill to uncritically accept what you write, yet scripture says "Test the spirits to see if they are from God", and Paul praised the Bereans for cross-checking all teachings against what they knew from scripture, rather than just accepting it at face value.

You said Jeshurun referred to "Spiritual Israel". I quoted every single scripture where that name is used, how it referred to physical Israel - yet you consider such informative comments to be an attack (but have yet to show any scripture to corroborate your interpretation). Here, you literally disregard what was actually written in scripture.

Yet you accuse US of doing that?

MEW , I'm not under the law, I'm under GRACE. So I have no clue what you are now talking about or why you have even changed the subject. No longer being under the law is not a secret that is just now been revealed TO YOU. YIKES.

Being crucified with Christ, being baptized into His death, and being raised up together with Him A NEW CREATURE has set us free from the Law of sin and death. It's all there in Romans 5-8. It's not hidden. Nothing anymore is hidden. Maybe it has been to you, but these truths are no secret just now revealed to you where you think you have to pass along. Paul did that 2000 years ago.

You are right to notice that preacher and His thievery (the modern day moneychangers are simply MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS).

The difference in points of view about being a son of God or a servant is due to the decision to settle for a MILK devotion or to move on to a mature SOLID FOOD devotion.

Hebrews 5:12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need some one to teach you again the first principles of God's word. You need milk, not solid food,

Hebrews 5:13 for every one who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a child.

We keep hearing new stories about ostentatious worship. Coaches stopping in the middle of the field to pray, while everyone else either watches, or is pressured to join. Jesus said when you pray, go into your room and pray in private.

A preacher who is robbed in the middle of his service, with robbers getting away with a million dollars of jewelry he and his wife are wearing. Who needs a million dollars of jewelry to preach the Gospel, and guess who paid for all that? Jesus said you can't serve both God and Mammon.

Yes, much taught in churches today is in error, but it's arrogant to assume that in 2000 years, you are the only one to have discovered the truth.
