Liberty In Law – Law of Love

Oops, I made you wait long enough for the #GoodNews that #Jesus brought to us after we figured out we could not possibly keep the #Law.  If the Ten Commandments show us that we cannot measure up to God’s holy standard, how can we possibly hope to enter His presence much less have a relationship with Him?  What commandment did Jesus give us before He sacrificed Himself for us and defeated death through His resurrection?  Even back in 2005, Brother Tommy saw the rampant examples of the law of hate.  It is easy to hate or at least not to love each other.  How can we keep this new commandment?  God thought it, Jesus brought it, and the Holy Spirit wrought it.  How does loving God fully and our neighbor as ourself automatically keep the Ten Commandments?

#FakeNews, #MyTruth, #Spin, #WhiteLies – what do these have in common?  Is there a part of the body that becomes sharper with use?  How does the Bible warn us about guarding it?  What is the worth of a good reputation?  Who is created in the image of God and why is that important?  Most of the consequential atrocities in human history turned on the false statement of a witness.  Where do lies originate?  Can you get in trouble by staying silent?  

Having gone through the Ten Commandments in detail, you may feel like there is no way to keep any of them, much less all of them.  Why would God give us these difficult rules and a nature that is prone to stray?  Next week, Brother Tommy gives the answer in the Law of Love messages.  But, you can get a sneak peek by going to the Gift link on the home page.

What does it mean to #covet?  Why would this commandment be impossible to #legislate with #manmade laws?  God knows our human nature because He invented it.  How does covetousness inevitably lead to the breaking of other commandments?  Can we only covet material things?  Why do we want what others have to the point of not wanting them to have it?  What does the Bible show us is the curse of covetousness?  How can it be cured?  Should it be redirected?

Liberty In Law – Law of Legacy – Protection of Property

Is #Jesus a #socialist?  What does #God think about the #right to private property?  But wait, does the commandment against stealing only pertain to material things?  What are the only three ways to receive goods and services?  Are we allowed to not only possess property but to protect it?  The Bible has much to say about what how we should use those possessions, but it definitely follows that we have to own and protect property in order to use it to glorify God and to help others.  Can we steal from God?  Is it possible to steal from ourself?  If you think the Old Testament penalties for stealing were harsh, just remember that not measuring up to any part of God’s law means falling short of the Glory of God.  And if you don’t accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will still be guilty.  Let Brother Tommy remind you of all the areas you may have forgotten about like taxes, wages, gambling, and tithing.  Maybe you are sensing a theme through these messages on the Ten Commandments.  If it seems like it is impossible to keep any of these rules, you are correct.  But God sacrificed His Son to pay the penalty for us and give us the power to live abundantly.

#SexIsFreedom or is it?  Many of today’s societal issues center around #sex like #abortion, #LGBT issues, #GayMarriage, #pornography, etc.   #God created sex for a specific situation and yes He made it pleasurable for our enjoyment.  But, what happens when we try to enjoy sex outside of God’s parameters?  God made sex to be enjoyed between one man and one woman in a marriage.  How did God make the two sexes complimentary?  What does it mean to be unequally yoked?  How does lust differ from love?  How serious is sexual sin and who does it hurt?  What is the solution to our wandering eye?  How did Jesus handle the sexually impure sinner?

#Life, what would we do to protect it?  #GeneSplicing, #Cloning, #RoevWade, and #MRNAvaccines are all in the news lately.  What do these have to do with the commandment not to kill?  Are we allowed to eat animals?  Is killing for protection allowed?  What does the Bible say about the death penalty?  Does it apply to suicide?  This includes shortening the lives of ourselves or anyone else through our actions.  How about abortion?  What is deicide and how does it apply here and now?  In the New Testament, Jesus Christ elaborated on this commandment and told us our motives are what will be judged.  This is the commandment that most people believe that they have not broken, but Jesus showed us that we are all guilty and in need of rescue.

Happy #Mother’sDay!  Is the #culture today honoring #mothers and #fathers?  Can we blame it on today’s prevailing attitude or do we ourselves fail to measure up to God’s ideal?  As we transition from the commandments that apply to our relationship with God, the command to honor father and mother leads us into the commandments that apply to our relationship with other people.  What does that say about God’s ideal for society that He puts primary importance on family over government or school?  What does honoring your parents look like?  Does this only apply to God loving parents?  Where would we be without them?  How does God feel about disrespectful offspring?  Does the Bible say anything about the parents’ responsibility?  Is there anything unique about this commandment?  What can we see that D. L. Moody noticed many years ago about obedient children and their outcomes?

Is #morality #relative?  Consider the source, if we follow #man made rules, then yes it is.  But, if we have been given a code of conduct by the Giver of #Life, the #Creator, then no it is not.  Today we are looking at the third of the Ten Commandments which tells us not to take the Lord’s name in vain.  Is this commandment just about speech or does it include conduct as well?  What are the names used for God in the Bible and what do they mean?  How had God established His name with His people before giving them this commandment?  What act were the Israelites told to do in Egyptian captivity that foreshadowed the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ to free us from our bondage to sin and death?  How seriously did the people in the Bible and even the transcribers of the Bible take God’s name?  Are there any verses that tell us that this commandment applies to more than speech and extends to conduct?  What do cursing, hypocrisy, perjury, and blasphemy have in common?  What is meant by the punishment of not being held guiltless?
