A response to the Judaizers; Legalists; Hebrew Roots adherents who accuse the Christian of being “CHEATERS, LIARS, THIEVES” due to their refusal to worship Sinai and the written code…
The written code given Israel at Sinai is NOTHING but a fragment of the Spiritual Law (Romans 2:14-15) that has been extant as an arbiter of free will subsequent the creation of the angels. Sinai’s written code was given Israel as a bulwark against paganism that inundated the Tribes at that juncture in human history, paganism that sought Israel’s compromise; this, a concern of Elohim as Israel was commanded to be holy as He is Holy and their compromise with paganism and pagan gods would have once again thwarted Elohim’s eschatological plan concerning His Messiah and the Gospel of Grace through which Elohim would “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b).
Sinai is an incomplete fragment of the eternal Spiritual Law and was given to Israel for a specific dispensation and for eschatological purposes and those letters etched in stone are NOT to be worshiped as an Icon but understood relevant to their purpose in a pivotal time in human history as Elohim prepared to introduce His Messiah through Judah’s Tribe and defeat the Devil via His own selfless love demonstrated at Golgotha via Messiah with the words “It is finished” (John 19:30).
Christians do not worship stones or letters or mountains (Romans 6:14) but they serve the Living God through the indwelling Holy Spirit who produces “fruit” of righteousness through them (Galatians 5), fruit that pleases the Father via the Spiritual Law written upon their heart at conception and infused within the human genome on Day-6. Jesus tells you plainly that you will know them by their “fruit” (Matthew 7:15-20) as the written code only defines our sin but provides no atonement (Romans 3:20); righteousness (a right standing) with the Father is not manifest through Sinai or a written code but ONLY through faith in the Son, Jesus Christ (Galatians 2:16; John 3).
When one walks by the Spirit they honor all LAW; both, the Spiritual and the written code. If one desires to love and honor the Father they must trust in Jesus Christ as their Messiah, receive the indwelling Holy Spirit as promised by Covenant (Ephesians 1:13-14) and honor the Spirit through obedience to His will in their daily life…this is eternal covenant relationship and this is eternal peace (Romans 5:1).
