Bondage

Hello Ray

Your insight in this verse, Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Thank you

Patrick

Dear Patrifck from Cape Town:

From what has Jesus "made us free?"  Paul plainly tells us what this bondage is in Rom. 8:2--"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH."

There is a law working in our carnal mind that does not allow for us to keep God's spiritual precepts (Rom. 8:7 & 7:23).  When we and Paul "were living n the flesh" (Rom. 7:5), we obeyed this law of sin and death,
But ye ARE NOT IN THE FLESH, BUT IN THE SPIRIT, if so that the Spirit of God dwell in you (Rom. 8:9).  The Spirit of God IN YOU will FREE YOU from the bondage of the LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.

Why was the law of Moses called a "carnal" ordenance, and "an administration of death?"  Few Christians could answer this question. The answer is, because there was NO FORGIVENESS of capital crimes under Moses, and there were many capital crimes--more than just breaking the ten commandments.  It was just as much of a capital crime to be an homosexual, as it was to be an adulterer, yet only the latter is covered specifically in the ten commandments.

We not only can have forgiveness for such capital crimes in our lives, but we can be forgiven for ALL THE SINS IN OUR LIVES.  But what happens when people turn to God and turn to the Church?  Why they are taught to GO BACK INTO BONDAGE.  Why would they do such a thing?  One of the biggest reasons is that they WANT YOUR MONEY.  And to get it they must go back into bondage and resurrect the law of tithing and then totally corrupt it beyond any recognition, and place it on the shoulders of Believers.

Of course they don't keep all of the 613 laws of Moses. They don't want to stop eating pork and lobster. They don't want to stop wearing clothing of mixed fabrics.  If farmers, they don't want to let their land lay dormant for one whole year in seven, etc., etc.

When you join a church and place yourself under their "governmental authoritiy," of that religion, you are BACK IN BONDAGE.

"COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE" (Rev. 18;4).

God be with you,

Ray
