• The 10 commandments are The Law. All other commands, statutes, religious rituals, also represent following The Law, 10 commandments in action. TOH-rah, means, instruction, doctrine; (human and divine) law, direction, regulations, protocol; custom; it is transliterated Torah.

      For example, if Jesus were to say "And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well," and then, 2000 years later, someone tells me that they "want to sue the shirt off my back," would it be a sin to not hand over my coat?
    • Creamcrackered
      A poor person had to pledge their cloak which must be returned by night to keep that person warm (Deut 24:10–13). Jesus’ response: “Give your cloak as well” is astonishing, for handing over one’s outer and inner garments meant being naked in court. Why? Enacted is the stripping of property and land by the creditor who would have both garments in his hands. Standing naked, shames and dishonours the creditor, exposes the greed of his action and the unjust system which he represents
  • As a gentile Christian I am not subject to the Old Testament law of God. The old law is good for teaching only. As a Christian I am under the Law of Love. Matthew 22:35-40 in the Age of Grace. The Torah Law was for the Jew only and never the gentile. It was a temporary law.
  • its all bs as priests and members of the chuech don't follow them I have no respect for any church where does it say its ok to molest children which they do and cover up for molesters. All of it is in aid of controlling stupid people.
  • Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. 1 Timothy 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
  • There's the law of Moses and then there is the Law of God - The Ten Commandments... Matthew 5:18 "For truly, I say to you, until Heaven and Earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished." The Mosaic law applies in Judaism, not in Christianity. Christians believe the law of Moses is a curse. Galatians 2:21" I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain." Galatians 3:13 "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us-for it is written, Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”
