Most Christians do not follow the law of Moses...WHY???
1. Jesus abolished the law--FALSE
-(Matthew 5:17-19)-"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them.
I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth pass away not the smallest letter or stroke of a letter will pass from the law until everything takes place.
So anyone who breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever obeys them and teaches others to do so will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.--TRUTH
2. Jesus taught against the law- FALSE
(Matthew 23:2-3)-"The experts in the law and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat.
Therefore pay attention to what they tell you and do it. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they teach."--TRUTH
3. The law was too difficult--FALSE
-(Deuteronomy 30:11-14)"This commandment I am giving you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it too remote.
It is not in heaven, as though one must say, "Who will go up to heaven to get it for us and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?"
And it is not across the sea, as though one must say, "Who will cross over to the other side of the sea and get it for us and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?"--TRUTH
(FYI, The oral law, Talmud, was difficult, not the Torah)
4. Paul did not follow the law-- FALSE
--Acts 24:14- "But I confess this to you, that I worship the God of our ancestors according to the Way (which they call a sect), believing everything that is according to the law and that is written in the prophets."-- TRUTH
--Acts 25:8- "Paul said in his defense, "I have committed no offense against the Jewish law or against the temple or against Caesar."--TRUTH
Be careful not to take Paul's writings out of context. His writings can easily be twisted to show that the law has been abolished.
It's a common mistake.
Peter warned us about this mistake :
-- 2 Peter 3:15-16- And regard the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as also our dear brother Paul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him,
speaking of these things in all his letters. Some things in these letters are hard to understand, things the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they also do to the rest of the scriptures.--TRUTH
When reading Paul's letters, remember that he uses the generic term "law" to refer to at least seven different laws:
-Law of God (Romans 3:31; 7:22-25; 8:7)
Isaiah 40:8, Mark 7:9-13, 1peter 1:23-25
-Law of sin (Romans 7:23-25)
-Law of sin and death (Romans 8:2)
-Law of faith (Romans 3:27)
-Law of righteousness (Romans 9:31)
-Law of God (Romans 3:31;7:22-25;8:7)
-Law of Christ (Romans 8:2, 1 Corinthians 9:21)
This post is to encourage all to research the scriptures. Jesus warned us of false doctrines.
The decision to follow Gods law has nothing to do with salvation. The law can't save us. We follow the law because we LOVE God.
