I want you all to keep one thing in mind, Hatred will condemn you, just as sure as Love can save you. Look at all the division in this world Satan has created. He uses color, race, religion, politics, sports, gender, marriage..etc.

Why do you think he creates division?
It's there to make you Hate, to keep you from being saved.
I know..I know..Paul said "All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved". Which is true..but understand the context of his statement.

Paul..like many of us teachers, thought he was living in the last days. And in the last days, people will be required to choose who they will call Lord, Jesus or the beast. Many of you are not saved, so I leave you with the same advice.

I can't think of a more divisive subject than politics, and yet here on a Christian site, you all continue to post these questions.

I understand how frustrating politics can be and the need for people to vent. But it creates division, and division creates hatred. I steer clear of politics for this very reason. I saw the need to intervene in this squabble, in the hope that I could diffuse the situation with scripture.

Scripture to remind everyone who they are, when Satan, through division, tries to make us forget.
And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
(Mark 3:24-25)

He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His Word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him.
(1 John 2:4-5)

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar. For he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loveth God love his brother also.
1 John 4:20-21

StrongAxe & Kathrine
Thank you for giving me your thoughts on the subject. And thanks to your correction, I think I may now have the answer. The ones written in stone were the only ones which required a sacrifice.
Thoughts?

I don't think "omission and commission" is what distinguishes these two.---StrongAxe on 3/11/22

Hmmm...you know...you're right! I am not a teacher of the Law of Moses, so I do make mistakes in those areas. Thank you for the correction.

Your thoughts on why some were written on stone?

We are under the New Covenant given to us by Jesus Christ.
Many believe we are not under Gods Laws...which sounds pretty foolish when you consider that's what a covenant is...and Paul called the Lords teachings..The Law of Christ in (Galatians 6:2), and taught against the lawless (1 Timothy 1:9). If you are not under the Law, you are Lawless.

The difference between the Law of Christ and the Law of Moses...is the New Law is written on our hearts and in our minds (Hebrews 10:6), and guided to keep these Laws through the Holy Spirit.
What are these Laws?
Laws of Love, love for God and love for all of mankind.
Why do we need to keep these Laws?
They condition the heart so we can love. (Ezekiel 11:19)

Part 1
Since many of you have been weaned on Pauls Epistles, I will try to untangle the woven web of deception.

God made a covenant with the children of Abraham. This covenant was composed of many Laws, Laws which were separated into two groups. Laws which the people were required to do (600+) called Works. And (10) Laws of prohibition...which Gods children were forbidden to do. Though we are not under these Laws...the New Covenant is very similar.

Many doctrines teach Gods Laws of prohibition are Works of the Law. This is not entirely untrue, for if you break them, they become Works. Only they are not the Works of the Law of God, they are Works of the Law of sin and Death.(1 Corinthians 15:56).

We cannot EARN GRACE, as he continues to preach and teach. God's Grace works only through FAITH, NOT OF WORKS---kathr4453 on 3/10/22

Kathrine
The Ten Commandments...as pertaining to the Law of Moses...were not the "Works of the Law". Now if you think I'm wrong, why did God write the Ten in stone? What's the difference between the Laws written on stone and the ones that were not written on stone? The laws of omission and commission.

David, GRACE doesn't save us...---kathr4453 on 3/10/22
For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
(Ephesians 2:8)

Kathrine, blame Paul..He taught it a long time before I did. You seem to think I wrote everything in the Bible you don't believe. Flattering to be sure..but I swear...I didn't write anything in the Bible.
We all have Bibles David and can read for ourselves. ---kathr4453 on 3/10/22
Obviously not, you have been reading the Bible most of your life, and you didn't know we are saved by Grace.
I know, Start your own blog question, telling folks how they are saved, without doing anything to be saved. We would find that an interesting topic!!

How does Grace save us?
When you live in obedience to Jesus Christ..you will be loved by God the Father. (John 14:21-23)
You will find, you don't want to go through life anymore not being in that relationship with God. And once you come into repentance (Love God), you will not want to sin, you will want to keep the Lords commandments.
But didn't you say, repentance was guilt over sin?
When you didn't love God, there was no guilt over sin, when you love God, there will be guilt over sin. Your Love for God will grow and you will find, the greater your love for God...the greater your guilt when you sin (Romans 7:13). Your Love for God and his Love for you...will destroy the body of sin and death.

Now I don't expect you to take my word for it, so go and confess your sin before God. Just ask God to forgive you for all your sins..and he will..because that's his promise. (1 John 1: 8 & 9)

Now go through your day as you normally do, and notice how much more difficult it is to take office supplies home with you (stealing)...Call in sick when you aren't (Lie)...tell or listen to a dirty joke...(Honor your parents) Etc...
Now instead of breaking these commandments..Keep them!!

And when you live in obedience to God...keeping these commandments...which the Holy Spirit will put into your mind...just stand back and watch Gods Grace work,...how it really works!!
How does Grace work to save us?

(Romans 7:8 & 9) But sin, taking occasion through the commandment,wrought in me all manner of concupiscence, for without the law sin was dead. For I was alive apart from the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died..
What commandment is Paul referring too?
It's that commandment, which keeps you a slave to sin. It's that commandment you try your very best to keep, because God noticeably punishes you when you break it. Believe me, you're breaking more than just one the of the Lords commandments, only you don't recognize all of the sin in your life.
Why don't you recognize it?
Unconfessed sin separates us from God, so...we do not recognize sin.

Really good take on this David. Appreciate you sharing it. Kinda like parables. They were never intended to be understood by all...Trav

Good to know someone else understands it. On occasion I try to share the hidden Gems. Don't know if you noticed, but I took your advice on the other blog. I'm a teacher not a debater. Gets a little frustrating when a Christian believes they are debating against me, when in reality, they are debating against the clearly written teachings of Jesus Christ.
Thanks for the advice brother!!

(John 14:21)"He that hath My commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves Me, and he that loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will manifest Myself to him.

If we are slaves to sin, how can we possibly keep the Lords commandments?
A little secret....We can keep every commandment the Lord gives us through his Holy Spirit...except one (Romans 7:9). This is why the Bible says, his commandments are not difficult to keep (1 John 5:3).

What happens when we keep the commandments that are not difficult?
Jesus says..."My Father will Love you".
What does this mean?
This translates into a life being blessed by God, noticed blessings.

Calm down..it was an Analogy!!
You always look for an argument. I was not condemning homeless people...of course they smell because they don't have access to showers. I was pointing out, the fact people who don't bathe for long periods of time...stink. I used the homeless, because they are the most prevalent example people can identify with.

I could have used military operations, but most people never serve.
I've had that experience in the Marines, when sometimes we would need to go weeks without bathing. Believe me, you don't know you smell that bad, until after you're bathed, and try to put the dirty clothes you had on, back on.
