Subject to the Law of God?
As believers, are we subject to the law of God?
Scripture defines sin as the ‘transgression of the law;’ yet most of today’s Christian theologians, preachers and teachers would persuade us that we have no responsibility to the laws of our Creator – that as believers we are free from the law. They way they attempt to accomplish that is by taking scripture out of context – picking and choosing the parts they like and disregarding the rest.
While it is true that the apostle Paul said Christ Jesus has made us free from the law, those who want to define their own version of Christianity leave out the part that tells us which law – the law of sin and death, not the commandments of our Creator.
The New Testament tells us that the wages of sin is death – you sin – you die – that’s the law of sin and death. Our Savior, Yeshua, Jesus Christ has paid the penalty for believers who walk not after the flesh. He condemned sin in the flesh. He did not make a way for us to break His Commandments.
God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
