In our series on the two covenants, we have reached the point of asking, and finding the Biblical answer to, the questions of what was the problem with the Old Covenant that it had to be replaced? It’s not what most have assumed, or been taught by the purveyors of false doctrine.
Was spiritual conversion required under the Old Covenant? Was it Possible? These are key questions, the answers of which need to be understood if we are to truly understand where the Old Covenant, and its replacement, the New Covenant, fit in God’s dealings with mankind.

It is believed by untold numbers of professing Christians that the law of God is a curse, and that the ten commandments were “done away” by Jesus Christ.
While voluntarily refraining from certain acts might be commendable, many in various Churches are taught and believe that there is no real obligation to keep the ten commandments. And it’s taught that the New Testament backs up this assertion.
But does a careful reading of the New Testament actually suggest that Christians are excused from any obligation to keep the ten commandments? Or, is the opposite true, does the New Testament in fact explicitly impose upon Christians the obligation to keep the ten commandments?
