LESSON 10 JESUS, THE ANSWER TO LEGALISM

INTRODUCTION: BOY IT IS GOOD TO BE BACK WITH YOU -- AND JUST IN TIME TO EXPLAIN WHY YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP THE SABBATH ANY MORE!

WHY DO I GET TO TEACH THE HOT POTATOES! (WITH AN "E")

BEFORE WE GET INTO OUR LESSON, I APPRECIATE EDDIE KIPPS, ED AVILA AND FRANK SELVAGE TEACHING IN MY ABSENCE. I WAS GONE LONGER THAN EXPECTED, AND I CALLED GREG THOMPSON BEFORE LAST SABBATH AND ASKED HIM IF HE COULD ARRANGE A SUBSTITUTE. I DON'T KNOW WHO THAT WAS BUT I APPRECIATE THE HELP.

WELL, LETS GET INTO IT!

I. HUMAN PHILOSOPHY v. GOD'S WORD

CIRC ON THIS SIDE----------------------BAPTISM ON THIS SIDE

LAW ON THIS SIDE-----------------------CROSS ON THIS SIDE (2:14)

NOW I THEN DID AN ENGLISHMAN'S SEARCH ON LAW AND CAME UP WITH (MT 5:17 & 18 WHICH CLEARLY REFER TO THE 10 COMMANDS (AT LEAST THE CHURCH HAS ALWAYS TAUGHT THIS.)

(THAT EPH MAKES IT CLEAR. THAT GOD CAME TO MAKE PEACE BETWEEN THE LAW AND SINFUL MAN. HE DID THAT IN FULFILLING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW. WE SHOULD NOT GET JUMPY AND SAY THAT HE DID NOT NAIL THE LAW TO THE CROSS. WE SHOULD NOT IN OUR DESIRE TO PROTECT THE SABBATH SAY THAT THE SABBATH WAS NOT REFERRED TO IN COL. INSTEAD WE SHOULD SAY THAT THE SABBATH IS IN THE SAME POSITION AS THE ENTIRE 10 COMMANDS ARE TODAY: THAT THEY WILL NOT SAVE US. BUT THAT WE OBEY BECAUSE WE LOVE GOD.)

Matt 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. (KJV)

Matt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (KJV)

NEXT WEEK: COL 3: 5-11. STUDY.
