Free from The Law

Every sincere child of God should take to heart the Apostle Paul’s reprimand of the believers at Galatia when he writes: “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey (Gk. peitho, rely upon) the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?” (Gal. 3:1). They forgot the truth they had learned from Paul concerning the meaning of the cross-work of Christ on their behalf.

There are No ‘New Testament Christians’ Today.

The Bible says I can't be a New Testament Christian today.

No one would bat an eye if it was proclaimed that I was not an Old Testament Christian, so what is it that makes a New Testament Christian much different?

‘New Testament to Israel’:

It is wrongly said, “the old testament was for Israel, but the new testament is for the church.”

A Coffin for The Law

God had barely given the Law to Moses when He ordered that it be put in a coffin. That’s right — a ‘coffin.’ The reason for this is that the Mosaic covenant clearly stipulated:“Now therefore, IF YE WILL OBEY MY VOICE INDEED, and keep My covenant, THEN ye (Israel) shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people, for all the earth is Mine” (Ex. 19:5).

The Law Misunderstood

There are three basic misconceptions that most people entertain about the law of God and its Ten Commandments.

  1. Most people have a vague notion that the law always was in existence and that it must have been given to the first man, Adam, or soon after.

Actually, God gave the law to Moses for Israel only, about 1,500 B.C. This was after about 2,500 years of human history had elapsed (John 1:17). So mankind lived on earth for about 2,500 years without the law or the Ten Commandments.
