Legally Binding

Wednesday, March 29, 2017
Hey, my friend has been trying to tell me for at least three or four days that christians are still under the law of God (Ten Commandments) because there is a difference among the Law of God, the Ten Commandments, and the Law of Moses (ordinances, sacrifices, etc.); could you help me to show that there is one law?  Also, he told me that God made one covenant with the Israelites specifically about the Ten Commandments and another at another time.  He also says that the Ten Commandments are in heaven (Rev 11:19).  Thanks.

Sincerely,
Not A Lawyer

Dear Not A Lawyer,

The ‘Ten Commandments’ were Old Testament laws, and you need to live by nine of them. The entire Old Testament law, including the ‘Ten Commandments’ was done away when Christianity replaced Judaism (Gal 3:23-25). The New Testament law supersedes the Old Testament one, and the law written on stone tablets (the Mosaic law which includes the Ten Commandments (Deu 4:13) has passed away (2 Cor 3:3-11).

Having said that, the New Testament reiterates nine out of the ten commands. Christians do obey nine of the ‘Ten Commandments’ because Christ thought nine of them were worth keeping in the New Testament.

  1. Thou shalt not have any other god before me (Ex 20:3, 1 Cor 10:14)
  2. Thou shalt not make graven images or bow down to them (Ex 20:4-5, 1 Jhn 5:21)
  3. Thou shalt not take God’s name in vain (Ex 20:7, Heb 12:28)
  4. Honor thy father and mother (Ex 20:12, Eph 6:1-2)
  5. Thou shalt not kill (Ex 20:13, 1 Pet 4:15)
  6. Thou shalt not commit adultery (Ex 20:14, Heb 13:4)
  7. Thou shalt not steal (Ex 20:15, Eph 4:28)
  8. Thou shalt not bear false witness (Ex 20:16, Rev 21:8)
  9. Thou shalt not covet (Ex 20:17, Eph 5:3)

The only one of the ‘Ten Commandments’ left out is the keeping of the Sabbath (Ex 20:8). Christians aren’t bound to keep the Sabbath holy; Jews were. You have to keep the other nine though.

Spotting A Counterfeit

Is Jesus real?

Sincerely,
McCoy

Dear McCoy,

Absolutely!  Jesus is real, and the Bible accounts of Him are also real.  There are historical accounts of Jesus by an ancient writer named Josephus that attest to Jesus’ existence.  Archaeological evidence of the church dates back to the first century… within a couple generations of when Jesus lived.  This archaeological data is very important because it confirms that the message of Christ spread during a time in history when people could confirm His empty tomb, His miracles, and His hometown history.  In short, if Jesus was a fake, the people of that time period would have stopped a false legend from spreading… but the opposite was true.  Jesus’ church and message spread because the story was true and couldn’t be refuted.  For more information on this topic, we highly recommend the book A Case For Christ by Lee Strobel.
