    The Old Testament Law requires you pay for your own sins. Are you so sinless that you have no need of fear? Go through and check your sins against the consequences of the same sin with the Law of the OldTestament.

    However, it should be remembered, the laws of the Old Testament, the way in which they were done does not apply to those of the faith given to this generation.

    The Son gave us this, so we should always be sure not to turn The Father nor His Son aside to do that which they broke us free from. We have freedom in faith, so let's all not go again to carry a yoke to heavy for us to bear.

    Please show where the OT laws don't apply today? In fact HE said we should live the law. "The law should be in you"

    I didn't say they don't apply; I said the way in which they were done, as in the works of the law, don't apply to the faithful generation.

    Because it is in you, it applies in that manner, in your faith. Don't jump to conclusions, but read thoroughly, yeah?:)

    The law being in you means, it must be a way of life. Akin to brushing your teeth, hair. Taking a bath. That it is even a more stricter burden.

    Btw, if I had seen a black one in my youth, you'd be calling me Fr Keme. lol So I know a little scripture. Your premise is out of context

    Yes, it's a way of life. What are you talking about? It's all in faith, always in faith, your life in all things is in faith. That's the law kept. That's not out of context just because you are reading wrong.

    I'm speaking on not carrying the burden of the law by works, which were continual sacrifices, circumcisions, and so on. The burden is not stricter, but is light, as the Son stated. We have a freedom that was not so back when, a perfect covenant, so that is not stricter.

    If you live by the Law of Moses, then you will be Judged by the Law of Moses. Jesus said that He will not accuse you; but Moses will. He said Moses wrote of Him. If you refuse the sacrificial lamb who is Christ for you, then you must pay for your own sins to the uttermost farthing. How does that work for you? Look your sins over. The Law is not forgiving. The Law must be paid. Justice requires it.

    Jesus did not do away with the Law, He fulfilled it. How is that possible? He fulfilled the Law of Moses with Love. God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son to be the sacrifice to pay Justice and therefore fulfill the Law as the law was paid in Christ. The Atonement was made with His own life for the price of the broken Law.... which caused he, God, to bleed at every pore so great was the suffering. Without Christ, what is your hope at Judgement by the Law?

    Spoken wisely.:) This is what some fail to understand. This is why Paul said any who decide to get physically circumcised must keep the whole of the law. Why? Because to keep it in part and not in whole means you will be found guilty of breaking the whole law. The reason this generation is not to keep the law of works is because it was not made for us to do so, but to believe in the Holy Lamb of the Father so that we may keep the law through He.

    There are Laws of Heaven. God is the Law giver. He keeps his own Laws. Commandments are Laws. Yes laws are in effect today. The difference is the Law since The Lord Jesus Christ's Atonement does not require an eye for an eye for Justice, a life for a life; because, Jesus our Redeemer paid that price to Justice, the fine for broken Law of Moses. We would be men most miserable because the sacrifice of the symbol of blood in animals of Moses, in reality did not absolve us of our transgression (broken laws). That was only a symbol pointing to the blood of Christ, the lamb of God who sacrificed himself for us and paid the Law for us. Therefore, through that sacrifice of God we have a gift of repentance and forgiveness; which the Law of Moses could never give us as that requires payment from you. Justice requires no forgiveness, just payment . Now we have an unconditional resurrection of which even the wicked will be resurrected; but face judgement. Even, the earth has gone through a baptism in Noah's flood. The earth will be baptized in the second baptism of fire or the glory of God at his 2nd coming. Today sin is, not keeping the commandments which are for the good and prosperity of mankind. Not doing all one can to emulate Christ in his example and teachings is loss of blessings. Does following Christ prevent us from fun with families, barbecues, happiness. No. It emphasizes it. The end result of appreciation for Christ as your Saviour from the penalties of Law results in a Crown and kingdom for forever more with many many people you love.
