Even those who know or think they know Jesus Christ have much more to learn. God’s word is the source that reveals who he is, and not only what he has done, but what he is doing and will do for the benefit of 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?
In writing about the Passover Paul warned that it must be taken in the proper way and with the “discerning” of the Lord’s body in the Passover symbols. In “Discerning Christ,” are explored some of the deep spiritual implications of discerning Christ, and how that goes beyond the Passover itself to how we think and behave on a daily basis.
