 ...continued from...

...The fewer regulations a country has, the more loving the people are. The reason for regulation.(apart from overt oppression).is for education and/or control of those unable to regulate themselves. Such are those who allow themselves to be governed by religion; these are those who lack the spirituality to be governed by the law of love which just cannot harm another in any way. But, without this in the heart, one must have rules and regulations, so they can have a measuring stick for actions: 1Corinthians 3:1-3 "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk and not with meat; for hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For you are yet carnal....."

It was the same with the old covenant regulations; the heart just was not in them; they needed control from some kind of a 'government':.1Samual 8:6-8; Deuteronomy 5:29; Mark 10:5.

In the new covenant, it is a different story:.Hebrews 8:10; 10:16.

With love in heart, the times of hope and sureness.(Hebrews 6:19).of the new covenant, what further need was there for working to impress the heart with external regulations such as the Mosaic Law required?.2John 1:6

The Mosaic Law was a law made for the low consciousness of man. The Holy Spirit is much more efficacious than writings on tables of stone, such as what the ten commandments were written on.

Christ is now available for one's heart. Emmanuel was the sureness of a better testament:.Hebrews 7:22. Better than what?.Hebrews 7:19. And why? So He can save them who come to God by Him.(Christ), not to Him by religious legalistic law keeping.

This better way is so far above the Mosaic Law as to be incomparable: Ephesians 1:18-22.(especially verses 21 and 22).

You rule your heart and mind through kindness, peace and love, the fruits of what's called the Holy Spirit:.Colossians 3:15.

Thinking that God loves you if you do this or that, is kicking out of your life the unconditional love He has for you through Christ, that is, what Christ came to reveal about what we call the Father.

Paul tells us not to work the law in our lives:.Ephesians 2:9. We triumph in all ways in Christ.(1Corinthians 15:57), not the law. 

If one needs a law, any law to regulate himself, rather than the love of the Holy Spirit, then he is still 'of the flesh' and not of the Father:.Romans 8:2,3,8; 9:8

With Christ in you, the righteousness unattainable by the works.(keeping the various rules and regulations).of the Old Testament Mosaic Law,.is fulfilled.as you love and care for others; again, Romans 13:8,10. Note that verse 10 here is also saying that if one loves others, cares and helps them, it is impossible to do anything apart from that to them in all your interactions with them.

Paul again shows the superiority of Christ over the "carnal commandments".(there is no distinction between the singular or plural of the word 'commandment' in the original, in spite of how translators chose to utilize it).of the Mosaic Law:.Hebrews 7:16,28; Hebrews 8:6-8.(re: 'for finding "fault' {could not make you perfect as the sacrifice of Christ can} with "them" {'them' is more accurately translated 'it', when you consider the context and see Strong's Exhaustive Concordance available free in the Online Bible and God's Word for Windows}).

Paul in Hebrews tells us to consider Him with no mention of instruction to make yourself knowledgeable in the now defunct Mosaic Law:.Hebrews 3:1; again, 8:13.

The Holy Spirit was given only to a few select individuals in the Old Testament:.Mark 12:36. Now the Holy Ghost is for the many God is now calling:.Hebrews 7:19.

And what commandment or commandments should we now in this era of the New Testament be following:.John 15:12 "This is my commandment.(original is 'instruction{s}'), That you love one another.(Matthew 22:37-40), as I have loved you." 1John 2:3 "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments." 2John 1:5,6 "And now I beseech you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandmentunto you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments.(original is 'commandment', not in the plural form as the translators have rendered it; however the plural form would also be correct as the commandment to love one another encompasses faith.{Galatians 5:6).and patience and kindness and various other of love's attributes). This is the commandment, that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it."
   And, what today do we obey in addition to being a loving person?.Romans 1:5 ".....obedience to the faith....." 

A spiritually minded person, called in the Holy Bible, a Christian, is one who has concern for others. A non spiritual person is one whose concern for you is mollified by any lack of opportunity through you he may sense. In other words, if a person cannot see any use for you presently or in the future, they will have little or nothing to do with you; you are not worth wasting time on:.2Peter 2:3 "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you.....".(or, they'll figure out some way to extract your money by obligation instead of personal uncoerced decision from the heart)

And,.1Timothy 6:12-14 "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you are also called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses. I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickens all things, and before Christ Emmanuel, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession, that you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ."
