It is really not hard to understand for an adult. My 12 year old son even understands now, that if he says he is sorry and continues to commit the same offense that he was truly not sorry!!!

NO SDA'S HERE!! But from my understanding, they have a pretty good grasp on the TRUTH!!


GOD BLESS!!!

Never been to a church well...OK.

So please tell me where Jesus or Paul says we need to keep the 7th day Sabbath. I need facts.

BTW, if one is not convicted of sin by the HS how do I repent? I will not trust the opinion of Man.

Read: Ex1, Lev1. Num 1.Are you decended from Mr. Israel? The scripture is clear. We're talking genetic Jews (of which I am one).

"(17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."


Why is it that so few Christians see the glaring discrepancy IN THIS ONE LAW OUT OF THE 10. I was had a discussion with a sunday keeper, and she asked me why I'm so concerned with this one law and told me that it was the only law I cared about. My response to her was simple. I said that the reason we weren't sitting there discussing the other 9 was because we were both in agreement on the validity and necessity of the other 9. It seems that the only 1 people really want to through out is the 4th one. I have never had a discussion with another Christian where they are saying that the other nine don't need to be followed. Never. I've gone through each of the other 9 and they never indicate that a single one is any less valid today. But, bring up that 4th one and you get everything from "there is no Law" to "I find my rest in Christ".



So where is is written in the NT that Jesus or other writers said we still need to go to church on saturday or not eat unclean foods?

Christ made it clear that we are to keep His commandments. I gave you the Rev quote as one example. the 4th commandment states to KEEP the day Holy. If you want to go to church on sunday that is your business, and as I said before that is not a sin in and of itself. Likewise, not attending church on Saturday, is not a sin in and of itself. The question is, are you keeping Saturday Holy? Are you working for your own financial benefit? Are you out at parties and ballgames or spending special time reflecting on God? The reason it seems to center around church attendance is because going to church is so congruent with keeping His day Holy, that it just makes common sense to do both on the same day, and all share in God's special day together.

As to the unclean foods? For me that is just common sense. God's declaration of clean and unclean animals wasn't simply a ceremonial thing but a practical physiological thing. God delineated between clean and unclean when the animals were heading into the ark. Unclean went by 2's and the clean went by 7's. If eating those things were unhealthy for them and God himself viewed eating them as detestable, and abominations, than i have yet to taste a strip of bacon or a piece of fried shrimp that is sooooooo good that I'm just going to think God didn't know what He was talkin about. God made all the animals and He made the human body; if He says something ain't good for consumption, then I'm not going to eat it. Once again, common sense of which I don't need another text for. If God ever refers to anything as detestable or an abomination, I would need equally as strong and direct a language be used to convince that He feels that it is ok. And trust me I've read every NT text that people use to justify eating anything, and none of them are talking about pork/shellfish.

Dead to sin.

What does it mean when it says, "...We are delivered from the law."...?

It means >>we<< (TRUE BELIEVER'S WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO GOD'S WORD...WHO KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS...NOT EXCLUDING THE FOURTH ONE!) are delivered from the power of the law which condems and curses us for the sin committed by us. The curses and the condemnation of the law is VOID and is REVOKED by the death of Christ>> TO ALL TRUE BELIEVERS WHO KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ONLY<<

The law says, "The soul that sinneth shall die; but >>we<<(only those who keep the Ten Commandments...Not excluding the Fourth!) are delivered from the law. The Lord hath taken away >>thy<<sin, >>thou<<shalt not die. >>We<<are redeemed from the curse of the law (Gal. 3:13).

Understand the law as a covenant of works...and a covenant is FOREVER...the law, the Ten Commandments is IN THE MERCY SEAT OF GOD ALMIGHTY...HE SITS UPON IT...IT IS THE BEDROCK OF OUR COVENANT WITH HIM, AND IT WILL NEVER GO AWAY! Those who obey the TEN COMMANDMENTS are under a covenant of grace...which promises strength to do what it commands, and pardon upon repentance when >>we<< do amiss...>>we<< are not under a covenant of works...>>we<< are rising to a NEW LIFE!...serving a New Master!..."...married to a new husband...!)...>>our<< first husband was the law...>>our<< New Husband is Christ Jesus!

In this chapter (Gal.2), Paul speaks of his past life and conduct.

You are saying that you can sin...and they (the sins) are hung on the cross...! I don't think so! If we seek to be justified by Christ as sinners...the question is, Is Christ the minister of sin?...how this belief dishonors Him! The workings of the law are not justified...and the sacrifices and cleansings of it>> (THE CEREMONIAL LAWS THAT WERE THE LAWS WHICH WERE HUNG ON THE CROSS) were done away in Christ by His sacrifice for us!

For you to live in sin, is you trying to make Christ the minister of sin...this tears me apart inside!!!

Daniel 7:25 (New International Version)

(25) "He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time."
HalfNelson,
Do you keep all ten of the Ten Commandments?...the 4th one?...honoring the Lord on Saturday, by not working, which is the 7th day Sabbath that the Law is speaking of?

We eventually were supposed to adopt this self-control out of love of God and concern for one another. WE FAILED . . . except for the one who was prophesied to come . . . Jesus. He succeeded for us ALL. He PERFECTLY manifested that love no matter what He endured and showed that even death was not to be feared anymore. Our entire species mission was fulfilled in Him and we get to reap the benefits through Him. The purpose of the law was to instill self-control and produce our species ability to do so out of love. Jesus fulfilled that purpose of the laws.

Our New Covenant (purpose) is to spread that love with what God has "written in our hearts," and the Holy Spirit (of Jesus) within as our guide. We now have the "mind of Christ" as our CONTEXT for understanding the TRUE NATURE of our God when reading scripture to remove the veil of ignorance that still resides over reading it till this very day. God has no interest in OBEDIENCE to any specific laws FOR HIS SAKE . . . that is why the law was EXPANDED by Jesus to "love God and each other" . . . which covers FAR MORE ground.
...an example of a false gospel...definately not the one in the Bible...and one in which is NOT supported in any measure or stretch of the imagination...except, of course, a "mystical imagination."

I have had many a discussion on the 7th day Sabbath.

This section settled the issue for me. The Sabbath is for the Jew.

For Christians Jesus is our Sabbath rest.
Your idea is dead wrong. >>We<<Gentiles - (TRUE BELIEVER'S WHO OBEY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, INCLUDING THE FOURTH ONE, KEEPING THE SEVENTH DAY (SATURDAY) SABBATH HOLY UNTO THE LORD) have been grafted in as children of Israel!...spiritual Israel!

As I often say, walking with Him allows you to look back and realize that you haven't been sinning, but you didn't even have to try!
The only way the law is fulfilled within us is if it IS INDEED written upon our hearts and we OBEY them! Is Christ the minister of sin?...God forbid!!!

As we learn to abide in Him, the things we're instructed to do become our life: thinking on things above, whatsoever is true and honest, praying without ceasing - these are all a part of abiding. John said it best: Every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself - or to take it literally, this hope (His life) is keeping us as we walk with Him.
...walk and walk and walk...walk forever till you die...if you died not having been faithful to the TEN COMMANDMENTS, INCLUDING THE FOURTH ONE...your walk has been in vain!

Which day did he say to keep holy?????

The 7th day.

DANIEL 7:25 "And he shall speak great words against the most high, and think to change times and laws"

In order for satan to change times and laws, he would have to change only the sabbath law which contains a specific time.

The fourth commandment is also the seal of the living God spoke of in Revelation 7:2.

It is also the only commandment that contains God's seal within its words.

The seal of the president:
Barrack Obama President of the United States of America

There are three characteristics of a seal:

1. Name: Barrack Obama

2. Title: President

3. Territory: United States of America

Exodus 20:11 "For in six days THE LORD MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH, THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IN THEM IS, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it"

1. Name: The Lord

2. Title: The Creator

3. Territory: heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is

Ignore the seal of God if you wish, but I have given warning to those who understand that in order to be in the lambs book of life, then ALL ten commandments must be kept!! Please look at this with an open mind and heart, and you too will see God's wonderful truth!!!


GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!!

Not to worry. I work Tuesday-Friday. And you should consider Acts 10

Saturday is a day of non work. As is Sunday and Monday.

I like Lobster and have bacon with my eggs on occasion. Legalism is not part of my faith. What I do on my off work days is way healthier than the average SDA'er. Not many of them Mtn bike, hike or ski. A vegan who is a couch potatoe is heading for an early death.

It's not about bacon. It's about lifestyle

So friend, I assume from what you said that you never lie or covet or put things before God and are perfect.

And please cite where Jesus said that His blood does not cover the "sin" of going to church on Sunday. Ya know I can be a killer, an adulteror, even a theif and yet be saved. But if I go to church on Sunday-that is the unforgiveable sin???

You guys need to read the Bible, without doctrinal bias

I find that to be funny because it actually covers the same. Sadly most say that it doesn't include the sabbath, but then that would mean the ten covers more. Sorry, I just don't see how it covers more. Only the same law, still written with the finger of God, just written in a different place!!!
This reflects the cover of the veil of ignorance that exists when the OT is read and assumed to reflect the nature of our God instead of Jesus. We are NOT pets in OBEDIENCE training . . . we are children supposedly MATURING.
Quote:
That voice in your head telling you to do the right thing instead of the wrong thing, is what is written on your heart. It's the ten commandments. I truly am saddened to hear so many people prefer their sinning ways over God's way. Also, I did not know that God created seperate races of Adam's and Eve's. Do we not bare their origional sin???? We are all ancestors of Adam and Eve in one way or another. Hence we are all Israelites. We all stem from the same people. God's people!!!! Seems to me that we must have a race of aliens who come from another planet and only the original people from earth are God's people. Everyone else seems to have their own God who changes from time to time. My God never changes and His law is EVERLASTING!!! The book of the law is Moses' laws. The ten commandments that were written with God's omnipotent finger are the laws of GOD!!!. The only other reason that God would create laws that would be obsolete in the future is because he is ignorant!! I don't think you wanna be the one saying that God is ignorant.
No one prefers sinning ways and the Laws are not obsolete . . . they were "training wheels" by the "Schoolmaster." We no longer need them as crutches . . . as you say they are "written in our hearts."

Galatians 3:23

But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

The only ignorance that remains even to this day is the veil that covers reading the OT and Moses which can only be removed by listening to the Holy Spirit and what is "written in our hearts" using the "mind of Christ."

2 Corinthians 3:14-17

14But their minds were blinded:(Blind Mind = Ignorance) for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16Nevertheless when it (the HEART) shall turn to the Lord (JESUS), the vail shall be taken away.
17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.


1 Corinthians 2:16
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
Quote:
Also, how can you say that God's laws are no longer valid, when that little voice inside your head is telling you to do the right thing. Your head only knows because of those laws. If there is no law, then there is no right or wrong!! Then the world is free to live however sinful they please.
Nonsense. They are "written in our hearts" as you say. . . NOT on stone tablets. . . . and we have the Holy Spirit within to guide us. They are "written in our hearts"

2 Corinthians 3: 2-6 (King James Version)

2Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

3Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

4And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

5Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

6Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.


Hebrews 8:7-13 (King James Version)

7For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

8For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

9Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

10For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

11And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

12For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

13In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

1 John 2:27 (New Living Translation)

27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.

Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the GREAT COMMANDMENT IN THE LAW?

37 JESUS said unto him, THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND.

38 This the FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT.

39 And the SECOND IS LIKE UNTO IT, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.

40 On these two commandments HANG THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.
