RE: Mark 7:19 from other thread
Greg, although you have chosen not to answer my post yet again, I am going to respond to your post.
Quote:"the best case scenerio would be to not break Gods commandment and save the soul but thats not what your asking, ones eternal life is more important though to answer your question, notwithstanding keeping and being faithful to Him is also Life aswell."
Greg, you know that you omitted the rest of that teaching and you should be asking your self why you would do that?
Mat 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
Mat 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
Mat 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Mat 19:19 Honour thy father and [thy] mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mat 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
Mat 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go [and] sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come [and] follow me.
Aren't there ten commandments normally within that list, Greg?
Didn't Jesus answer and give the list of what must be kept of the commandments in order to have eternal life?.....
And if those "commandments" are what are given by Jesus---why is food and the sabbath not mentioned by our Lord and Savior?
Do you think He didn't know what He was talking about? Obviously if it was important or a priority--He would have said so. Don't you think?
Quote:also into Jews and Christ and God, something very serious, going all the way back to Sinai some 3400 years ago and thier covenant with Him.
Are you so unfamiliar with the Scriptures Greg that you don't understand what happened?
They broke the covenant and if God had enforced the Law to its end--they would have been destroyed. Instead He --Almighty God---provided a better way. The New Covenant.
Further, we see that Christ is The promised Covenant. He wasn't just bringing in the New Covenant--He was and is the New Covenant. He could and did change things during His ministry and after He died and rose again. The scriptures are clear on that Greg.
(1) Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. (2) He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. (3) A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. (4) He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
(5) Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
(6) I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
(7) To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. (8) I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. (9) Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
