Is it the ten commandments
that sets us in the way of God.(the
ways of love and compassion)?.Psalms
one of the apostles, in writing to Christians, say to look to the ten commandments
to keep them in the love of God and into eternal
Do the very last words in
the Bible tell us anything else but grace is important?.Revelation
Relying upon any of the promises
from God to come to you through law keeping is tantamount
to making the promises ineffective.
In talking about being perfect
and measuring up to the utmost,
the spiritual stature of Christ, Paul says nothing about tithing, or any
part of the Mosaic Law including the ten commandments: Ephesians
The nature of the Great Infinite
One that Christ came to earth to make personal to humanity, dwells in us
by faith, not, keeping the Mosaic Law's parts some religious persons today
feel we need keep to remain in a right relationship with God:.Ephesians
3:17; Galatians 3:2. It is only
through faith by the grace of God that we have access
to the Father and are saved. Nothing

It took the One sent to Earth
named Emmanuel, to come in the absolute
perfection required by the law in order to fulfil it, to complete it, for
without this type of righteousness.(righteousness
is in consciousness).Christ's
righteousness, it was never complete, and before the plan of God could
progress to where it was now at because of Emmanuel, the previous step
to this had to first become complete.
The Mosaic Law was heretofore

covenant throughout the Old
Testament and into Emmanuel's time in the New
Testament, was not at all a
higher spiritual way, the way of the new
covenant that Emmanuel came to reveal:.Matthew
5:17,18 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law.(some
no doubt} of the multitudes He talked to, were thinking that He came to
wipe out, to destroy, their coveted law with all
its rules, regulations and traditions).or

The gift of

Emmanuel talked of the law.
He was born and brought up under it:.Galatians
4:4. He had to understand what it was that He was to take us out from
the word 'Christian' mean?).keeping
the ten commandments today as a point of Godly obedience, are, in
effect, trying to be as righteous as Christ was, without, or perhaps, even
after accepting the gift of righteousness He made possible by His life
and death. This is tantamount
to rejecting Him.
1:7 and Matthew 26:28 show we
redemption from all sin
and this as a gift. So never think that because you have done bad,
now you should do good, so that God will accept you again. It is through
Emmanuel's blood and nothing else that you are redeemed:.Hebrews
9:12; 1Peter 2:24; Isaiah
64:6. It is His gift to those who accept it.

to have a new opinion, to move from the opinions that have locked a person
into the ego level and into the much more beneficial higher consciousness
Henry's Concise Commentary: "Deliverances
from misery and dangers by the divine power coming through the ransom of
the blood of Christ, in scripture,
are often called redemption."
Regarding a spiritual relationship
with God: In the new
covenant, only faith of Christ
in a person pleases God:.Hebrews
Paul had the same concerns
in his day to deal with. See 'Alternate
Gospel'. The mix of New Testament faith and grace with Old Testament
laws is deadly to spiritual
life, splits the personality.(schizophrenia).and
is the main reason why 70% of those in mental institutions are, sadly,
'born again' Christians.
done their utmost
to keep themselves right with God by keeping the ten commandments, church
going, tithing and the like, many become disillusioned
after experiencing heartache after heartache. Something is seriously
wrong. They have done their best, yet have
from grace into sin, which means 'missing the mark' of what Christ
came to ensure humanity has.
Disappointedly such are they
then who again have no other option but to rely
on the ego level as a life base.
The ego level is a heartache producing level. Headaches come from stress
and heartaches from a loss of love. If the body is fighting for proper
nutrition, stress is produced. If one's life is fighting for meaning, if
one's life is fighting to live better, stress is also produced. The
way out. The heart brain is capable of love while the head brain concerns
itself with ego and survival.
The true meaning of 'sin'
is 'missing the mark'. They have missed the mark of the free
gift of righteousness of the Infinite One, free, by faith and faith
alone and not their faith, but the faith of Christ, given as a gift, but
no matter who may give you a gift, you always have the option
to accept it or not. They have
never really been taught how
they can have the power of God that 'moves mountains'.(examples.1,
