Thank you for writing this article. It sooo reminds me of what I have been forgiven for. I have broke every commandment. I was so willfull but now I have been forgiven. My heart is mended, although I still feel sad when I think about these things. I just praise the Lord for His suffering to save a wretch like me. Thank you!!!

A fine article, Jack. A much needed reminder that it is God who sets the standard for living, not us.
Yours in Christ,

Thank you Robert. I appreciate your encouragement my brother.

Sir thanks for that nice information… How about sabbath? Plz give a reply….

Jack Wellman April 26, 2017 at 8:34 am

Hello Job. The Sabbath command was given to Israel as it always came attached with “Say unto the children of Israel” so if you’re an orthodox Jew, keep the Sabbath but it doesn’t really make you draw closer to God (Gal 3). Today we worship on the Lord’s Day as the early church did and on the day Jesus was resurrected. Please read this my friend:http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/should-the-sabbath-be-on-saturday-or-sunday/

Hello Jack.
Is the Lord’s day the first day of the week?
From my understanding it is the day if the Lord when he comes back or the day of wrath.
Again I also don’t think that there’s any commandment we should remove.This includes the sabbath.If you’re saying that the 10 commandments are still relevant then surely the Sabbath is relevant too otherwise you’ll be contradicting yourself.

Friend, no further comments will be approved. You can use a different name but you are the same person as it’s the same email, so I am sorry but this is the 2nd time that you have criticized someone or an article and used derogatory names against someone, and insulted them, so I pray you repent and remember Jesus’ commandment that shows how people will know we are His disciples, and it’s not the Sabbath! No, Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35). Please read 1 John and try to see what we are told to do with our brothers and sisters, and it’s not by keeping a day. That’s external works.

Do we then make void the law though faith? God forbid: yea, we establish we law Romans 3:31.
Here is the patient of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Rev. 14:12

Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in though the gates into the city. Rev. 22:14

Thank you Gloria. Yes, read 1 John 3 and this is what you are talking about. I am just glad we have grace (Gal 3; Eph 2) because it is not humanly possible to keep the commandments to gain eternal life, but that does not excuse us from striving to obey them. We should obey them but I’m glad we’re not saved by them, but by Christ alone.

Thank you for writing this. It really clarified a few concepts that I’ve been struggling to understand. You made it seem simple. I needed this!

Don’t the “commands” in 1 John 5:3 refer to the commands listed previously in 1 John 3:23-24 and 1 John 4:21? Why, or why not?

Do you have any insight into entole vs nomos?

Jack Wellman May 24, 2018 at 2:38 pm

Hello Akydd. I think you are right. They are both about loving. We are commanded to love God and then our neighbor, and those that do can know they are the children of God. As for “entole vs nomos,” I only know that we who are saved will naturally obey God’s commands, but not because we are compelled to but because we love God. When we love someone, we seek to do good things and please them, so even more so with God. Law doesn’t save, but a saved person will strive to obey the law.

I wrote 6 articles that I collected and expanded into a free 62-page PDF about this subject last year: “Did the grace of God cancel Biblical commandments?” The PDF sounds out a warning and shows many Scripture references in the New Testament that the church is not subject to any commandments that were dependent upon the Temple, sacrifices, or the Levitical priesthood, because those were given only for Israel. Yet, the references to the moral commandments of God, either directly or indirectly, are all over the New Testament. It is really foolish to deny it. The commandment of “love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:8) SUMMARIZES all the moral commandments of God according to Paul in Romans 13:9. A summary is not a deletion, replacement, cancellation, or rejection. Look me up if interested -Dan A. Rodriguez, and the page to download the 62 page where the free PDF is found is: X out the commandments under grace? The church at large desperately needs this info today.
