The 10 Commandments Can No Longer Save, Obedience To Jesus Does by davidinchrist(m): 8:14pm On May 30, 2020
I thought I'd just use this to help enlighten those still relying on the LAW/Old Covenant: the Ten Commandments; COMPULSORY Tithing/Holy days/Sabbath days/Holidays; Church Traditions/Rules/Routines and Activities, etc to be Saved or Please God in general.

The New testament is VERY CLEAR on this subject; and for THOSE who have EAR to HEAR:

PAUL (Apostle of Jesus)

He said he was BLAMELESS/PERFECT SERVING UNDER the Law, BUT later he had to COUNT the LIFE UNDER the Law as LOSS:

Philippians 3:6-7 KJV
[6] Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the RIGHTEOUSNESS which is in THE LAW, BLAMELESS.

[7] But what things were gain to me, those I COUNTED LOSS for Christ.

ANOTHER Man:
Luke 18:18 KJV
And a CERTAIN RULER (**A faithful KEEPER of the LAW) asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit ETERNAL LIFE?

Luke 18:19-22 KJV
And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is , God.

[20] Thou KNOWEST the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

[21] And he said, ALL these have I kept from my youth up.

[22] Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet LACKEST THOU ONE THING: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, FOLLOW ME.

"FOLLOW ME" IS THE ANSWER: TO FOLLOW JESUS IN OBEDIENCE as a Disciple:

Matthew 22:35-40 KJV
Then one of them, which was a LAWYER, asked him a question , TEMPTING HIM, and saying, [36] Master, which is the GREAT Commandment in the LAW?

[37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God with ALL thy heart, and with ALL thy soul, and with ALL thy mind.

**[38] This is the FIRST and GREAT commandment.

**[39] And the SECOND is like unto it, Thou shalt LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF.


***[40] On these TWO Commandments HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.

PLEASE CHEW VERY WELL ON VERSE 40: JESUS AS SUMMARIZED THE WHOLE LAW TO: LOVE GOD WITH YOUR WHOLE LIFE, AND LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR.

LASTLY:

***Matthew 5:20 KJV
For I say unto you, That EXCEPT your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the SCRIBES AND PHARISEES (**people under the LAW), ye shall in NO CASE ENTER INTO the Kingdom of Heaven.

In conclusion, following of being a DISCIPLE of Jesus is the way to please God, and enter His Kingdom.

Galatians 5:4,18 KJV
Christ is become of NO EFFECT unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the LAW; YE ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE.

[18] But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are NOT UNDER the Law.

(Note: If you still disagree with this writing, no problem. I don't need to prove anything to anyone.)

Romans 10:4 KJV
For Christ is the END of the Law for RIGHTEOUSNESS to every one that BELIEVETH.
