Readers will learn each and every law of God and become aware of what true sin is to Him. Through this deep understanding, readers will come to know God in a more profound way.
There were 613 commandments given to Moses by God in the Torah, not just ten. “There has never been a book like this one that lovingly goes against some wayward aspects of common Christian Dogma, just like Christ if given the opportunity to present modern day Church fallacies similar to the seven churches of Revelations. Readers will realize that they have been worshiping incorrectly this whole time.
PROBLEMS WITH PAUL
So, Paul, how is everyone else supposed to find out what is considered
sin in the eyes of God. In order to avoid future sin wouldn’t people
need to know and follow God's law also? Just in case you are somehow
confused the by the phrase "the law", and the phrase "the commandments"
both are essentially the same things biblically, they are both
interchangeable phrases in the Bible. Here, let Paul tell it Romans 7:12
Therefore the Law [is] holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.
By the way, this next verse (from Christ) was written AFTER Paul's grace
based doctrine of only requiring “Faith in Christ” for salvation.
Revelations 22:13-15 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,
the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that
they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the
gates into the city (Golden New Jerusalem descended down from Heaven).
Paul apparently struggled with his flesh often enough to say this about
his personal need to sin; Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ
our Lord. So then with the mind, I myself serve the law of God; but with
the flesh the law of sin. Paul also admitted that he had a mysterious
“thorn in his Flesh” and that God routinely sent a messenger of
Satan to “torment” Paul for a real reason (teaching a completely
false doctrine to the Gentiles would be my guess) 2 Corinthians 12:7
even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So, to
keep me from becoming proud,I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger
from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud.
So, strictly speaking from scripture, Paul was receiving constant and
harassing SATANIC "messages" (internally) inside his own mind aka "in
the flesh" according to Paul's own words.48 You have to wonder if any of
these messages ever guided his thoughts and Theological philosophies or
had any influence on his contradictory teachings. (when honestly
compared to Christ) To literally minister to all new believers about
Yeshua by getting them to completely ignore each and every one of God's
commandments. Think about it. If Satan did have an organized plan to
interfere with Christ's true gospel outreach then he would like nothing
more than to have each and every one of Christ's followers purposely
ignoring all of Christ's lessons about the commandments. Satan comes to
kill, steal, and destroy. (delete in Greek) Was Paul complicit in the
plan of Satan to delete Gods laws from Christianity? Remember that Paul
prayed desperately three times for God to take this satanic tormentor
away and neither God nor Christ ever did so. It was obviously some
semblance of punishment for something according to the commandments.49
As Paul said so himself, this satanic messenger had to be sent by the
only giver of these kinds of punishments, God himself.
Even Paul is aware that it takes more than just hearing the law to make
a difference in someone's life. Romans 2:12-13 For as many as have
sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have
sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; For not the hearers of the
law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. If
the doers of the law shall be justified why are you telling doers of the
law to stop keeping (doing) them?
Let's see what Paul says we should do with Gods law; Romans 3:31 Do we
then make void the Law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we
establish the Law. (establish the law means to set up these laws on a
permanent basis) Paul didn't seem to do much law establishing by
continually teaching that all that was needed was faith in Christ now
did he. Then Paul also goes on to say this about grace and salvation
through Christ; Romans 6:15 (AMP) What then? Shall we sin because we are
not under Law but under grace? Certainly not!
Wait, now I'm confused. So, in order not to sin we probably need to at
least know what Gods laws are because sin is simply the transgression of
Gods law (specifically the breaking of “ANY LAW OF GOD” this the
literal definition of sin) and absolutely nothing else than that.
Unfortunately, many Christians use Paul's words over Christs as their
principal religious compass. This is what Christ said about teachers
like Paul in Matthew 5:19 (NLV) So if you ignore the least (simplest)
commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the
least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and
teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. So, Paul
will be undoubtedly the least in the kingdom of heaven based on what he
taught all his personal followers about ignoring the Laws of God.
Peter himself wrote this warning about listening and following Paul’s
very convoluted gospel doctrine. Even Peter feared Paul's words would be
used as its own separate doctrine from Yeshua’s Gospel teachings and
many Christians don’t seem to realize it. 2 Peter 3:14-16 And
remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved (remember
Yeshua’s “grace” period). This is what our beloved brother Paul
also wrote to you with the wisdom God gave him, speaking of these things
in all of his letters. Some of his comments are hard to understand, and
those who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters to mean
something quite different, just as they do with other parts of
Scripture. And this will result in their destruction. What destruction
do you suppose Peter is talking about? Maybe the one that comes along
with not following the commandments of God even though Yeshua expressly
told you that he followed them and that if you love him that you should
follow them too. Sure, the Lord knows your heart/mind and he also knows
that he's truly not number one on your heart/mind priorities list.
