COMMANDMENTS REPLACE / GOING TO HEAVEN WHILE STILL KNOWINGLY SINNING

I was recently asked a question behind the wall. We've looked at these two subjects before but, since we have new people in our family, I'm going to post the response again.

Were the Ten Commandments replaced and will we still get to Heaven if we continue to sin but God see's the struggle?

Before the posted response, I told them that we are to work out our Salvation with fear and trembling. Whether one get's to Heaven is between a person and God; but here's what Holy Scripture says about the Ten Commandments and continuing in sin that we are aware of.

The Ten Commandment replaced by two laws is a deception of the harlot church that follows a teaching of man rather than Holy Scripture. The two laws, “love God” and “love your neighbor” are found in Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18. If these two Laws were “new”, as taught by todays church, they would not appear in the Old Testament. The reason Y’shua called “love your neighbor” law as “new” in John 13:34 is because it was a new concept to the Jew - they did not love their neighbor.

The Ten Commandments are summed up in these two statements: “Love God” and “Love man”. (Matt 22:36-40; Gal 5:14)

When Christ was approached by a rich young ruler, the man asked, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Y’shua started quoting from the Ten Commandments; not the first four but the last six, because this mans issue lied in his love of man (Matt 19:16-19). So Christ told this man that one must keep the Ten Commandments to enter into Heaven, yet we also see this in the prophecy of His coming (Rev 22:14)

Does the New Testament say we must keep the Ten Commandments? Religion says “no” but that’s because they are ignorant to the many “laws” in Scripture. “Law” can not be blanketed over the Ten Commandments. In Scripture, “Law” may refer to: Ten Commandments, Statutes, ceremonial, Covenant with Abraham, or the talmud (religious law). One must forget man’s teaching and study Holy Scripture and history, to know which “Law” is being referred in a passage. What does the New Testament say about Christ followers following the Ten Commandments? 1 John 2:3-4; 1 Cor 7:20

Y’shua said if we love Him, we will keep His Commandments (John 14:15). There’s an argument made, by religion, that Christ was talking about HIS two “new” commands and not Gods. Yet, Christ told us that He did not speak anything of His own account, He only spoke on God’s (John 12:49).

The statement made by Paul, that we are “no longer under the law” (Romans 6:14) is because those who follow Christ do not continue in sinful ways (1 Peter 2:21-22). If I never speed, I’m not under the law of speeding. But once I start speeding, I’m now under the law and may suffer the consequences of it. In fact, the no longer under law but under grace teaching is a teaching pulled from context within it’s own passage. When one puts the full passage in, we see we are no longer under the law because sin does not rein in our lives (Rom 6:14).

Speaking of Grace, the grace only teaching is very prevalent; one of the most taught subjects of the church today, but I’ve not found one person who can tell me how Grace saves. In fact, I’ve had people tell me it’s impossible to know how Grace saves. Since it is taught so hard, why is it that no one knows that the Bible tells us how Grace saves? I have to believe this is not ignorance but a purpose deception of churches and pastors today. They, if they do any study of Scripture, MUST know the passage is there; yet they purposely leave it out because it’s contrary to the “grace only” teaching.

In a letter to Titus, Paul writes (Titus 2:11-14), “the grace of God that brings salvation”, so we know he’s talking about the Grace that saves. He then explains that it teaches us to deny ungodliness (which is sinning-defined by the Ten Commandments (Romans 7:7)), and to deny worldly lusts (which is smoking, drinking, love for money, etc(1 John 2:15-17)). He continues to say the Grace that saves teaches us to live soberly, righteously, and godly; and teaches us to do good works.

All this is in the Bible, but is contrary to the teaching of so many people who CLAIM to follow the Bible.

Religion teaches that Salvation is easy, but Christ said it’s very difficult; so difficult few will make it (Matt 7:13-14).
Religion teaches that all you have to do is believe, but Christ said there will be many who believe, but will be rejected because they continued in sin (Matt 7:21-23).
Christ said we need to count the cost of following Him, because we must be willing to reject all the things of this world (Luke 14:26-29).
Paul said to work out your Salvation with FEAR and with TREMBLING (Phil 2:12-13).
Christ said we must repent (turn or mind from and change our path from sinning) or perish (Luke 13:1-5)
Christ said we must seek after Him with all we have (Matt 13:45-46; Matt 12:41)
Christ said we must make efforts to continually witness (Matt 12:41; John 15:1-2; Matt 13:22-23)
Christ said we must keep the Commandments (John 14:15)

Holy Scripture says we are to stop sinning (New Testament quotes): 1 John 2:1; 1 John 5:18; Romans 6:3-6, 12-13; 1 Cor 15:34; Acts 3:26; Titus 2:14; Hebrews 5:9

If we continue in sin, we defile the temple of God (our body). We are not to try and to reason our sin, or make excuses, as if we are wise. For we deceive ourselves by doing such things. We need to become a fool, in that we follow what we are told without further thought, and keep the Temple of God holy (1 Cor 3:17-18)

If we, after receiving the Gospel of truth, return to our sin, we put Christ to open shame; and it’s almost impossible to return to the Salvation walk (Heb 6:4-6). This is because, if we, driving the bad spirit from us, do not seek after Christ (study, pray, etc) and we do not preach of Christ (witnessing), that spirit will return and it will bring seven more worst than himself. Then the person will be worse off then they were from the start (Matt 12:43-45).

While God is faithful to forgive when we repent, if we continue in our sin, there remains no more sacrifice for sin; and we will suffer the punishment of hell (Heb 10:26-27).

The modern teaching by religion is a deception to a full extent. It is a teaching that is different from the Gospel, which we see so plainly. It is taught in efforts of numbers, it’s a pride issue. Because pastors, churches, and denominations, associate their success by numbers rather than the quality of the church. Therefore, they teach a message that is easy to the ears, that will please men so they come, rather than teaching the Gospel. (Gal 1:8-10). And those who blindly follow, being they don’t research Scripture for themselves, put up with such a heresy (2 Cor 11:4).
