Keeping the Commandments and a False Gospel…

The words promulgating a false gospel on FB > “When we are saved (by grace) from a sin we have committed it means we are given another chance to obey the ten commandments so that we can attain eternal life. It does not mean we have been given a free pass to eternal life and we can now reject/ignore the ten commandments.”

A Christian response,

“I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” Galatians 2:21 (NASB)

The Commandments, as given the Hebrew Tribes, could never bring righteousness through atonement as the Law only defined sin and condemned men and women to death in Hell (Romans 3) because righteousness through obedience to the Law can only manifest through perfect obedience and to violate one jot or tittle of the Law is to violate the whole Law (James 2:10); therefore, mankind, who is a sinner by nature (Romans 3:23) can never find righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father through the Law because we’re unable to keep the Law perfectly – but – God the Father, “before the beginning of Time” (1 Timothy 1:10), ordained a Plan known as The Gospel (Good News) (Genesis 3:21) through which He would provide mankind the opportunity to find righteousness with Him through the atonement of sin by the shedding of innocent blood and in doing so, God would “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) through the perfection of the Son, Jesus Christ, who would enter Time through the womb of a virgin woman (Genesis 3:15) and bypass the sin-nature transferred by the man, Adam (Romans 5:12; 1 Corinthians 15:21) and live a perfect, sinless life, and keep the Commandments and the 613-Levitical Laws in perfection (Mt. 5:17) thereby making Himself the ONLY acceptable sacrifice for sin (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 14:6).

When Jesus – Yeshua shed His innocent blood on Golgotha (Mt. 26:28), God the Father declared that His Son’s blood is the ONLY thing He will accept as atonement for your sin (Hebrews 10), my sin (John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:21), and the blood of Messiah atones for past-present-future sin as our sins that are forgiven by the blood of Christ are cast into the sea of forgetfulness forever (Hebrews 8:12) and the perfection of Jesus Christ is imputed over the life of the one who believes (2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 4:6-7). In fact, anyone who trusts in the blood of Yeshua-Jesus for atonement and repents of sin (Luke 13:3), believes in their heart that Jesus died for them; that is, for the forgiveness of their sin and that He was resurrected for their justification (Romans 10:9-10), they will receive the Gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit as the Seal and Guarantor of relationship with God, forever (Ephesians 1:13-14).

The one who trusts in Jesus as Lord is secure in our Lord forever and no one, nothing, will ever snatch them out of His hand or the hand of the Father (John 10:28-30; Jude 1:24). The one who has entered into relationship with God the Father by grace through faith in Jesus as Lord has received a New Nature through the Spirit and no longer desires to sin against God and when they do sin (Romans 7), they seek forgiveness (1 John 1:9), NOT to reestablish their salvation but they seek forgiveness to reestablish intimacy with our Lord as sin fractures intimacy and the greatest Gift of the Christian Life is the peace and joy in relationship with God through fellowship with the indwelling Holy Spirit (Romans 5:1; Philippians 4:7; John 14:27).

Conclusion,

So then, the Law demonstrates the righteousness of God as it defines sin and the Law also demonstrates our inability to earn our own forgiveness-atonement-salvation through attempted obedience to said Law and the Law demonstrates our need for an Intercessor between our sin and God the Father (1 Timothy 2:5). The Law cannot save mankind and anyone who seeks righteousness through the Law will be condemned at Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15) because they have rejected God’s Way to life (John 14:6) in eternity by grace (unmerited favor) through faith (trusting-believing) in Jesus Christ, alone (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

It is written,

30 What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith; 31 but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness[d] did not succeed in reaching that law. 32 Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, 33 as it is written,

“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” Romans 9:30-33 (ESV)

jesus - not saved by keeping the law
Jesus - law is knowledge of sin
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
