    this teaching reminds me that our responsibility is to renew our minds – for me that entails a new frame of reference, new set of values… thinking of the second chapter of Philippians, we don’t become zombies for Christ as some accuse us … 🙂

    I used a similar diagram to illustrate that Christians need not keep the Law of Moses. Mine used a triangle shape. It must have hit a nerve as the pastor kicked us out of the church for it. Onward and Upward!

    New occasions teach new duties; time makes ancient good uncouth; 
    They must upward still, and onward, who would keep abreast of Truth. 
    – James Russell Lowell (1819-1891)

    perhaps there is a need to distinguish between the 10 Commandments and the Law of Moses? when compared, i think it becomes obvious that the two have different purposes…
    not that we can flawlessly keep the 10, but they are the standard are they not?

    I don’t understand JD at #2.

    JD,

    Can you clarify your comment?

  5. JD says:

    The Ten Commandments are usually referred to as The Law of God. The Law of Moses is the common name for the 613 commandments contained in the Pentateuch.

    Hello Jean,

    A lovely piece about the simplicity of the Gospel that so coincides with what I have been reading with Paul, and Martin Luther’s Galatians Commentary. Yes, Michael..”that Martin Luther.” I bless and thank you for this lovely treatise that I have been able to read in between helping my Agents and customers today, and with anticipation want to meditate on this tonight…
