"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls." (Jeremiah 6:16)

If You Believe the Law of God Has Been
Abolished Under the New Testament, Then…

If you believe the laws of God have all been abolished under the New Covenant and, as a result, you are not keeping them, then you…

Believe heaven and earth have passed away:

“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.” (Mathew 5:18)

Are least in the kingdom of heaven:

“Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:19)

Are not accomplishing God’s will, are not known by God, and will never live in His presence:

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity [Greek anomian – lawlessness].” (Matthew 7:21-23)

Do not love Jesus:

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)

Do not abide in Jesus’ love:

“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love…” (John 15:10)

Do not believe the truth:

“…truth [is] in the law.” (Romans 2:20)

Are unable to identify sin:

“…by the law is the knowledge of sin.” (Romans 3:20)

Fail to exhibit true faith:

“Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” (Romans 3:31)

Do not believe in what is holy, just, and good:

“Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.” (Romans 7:12)

Do not believe in what is spiritual:

“For we know that the law is spiritual….” (Romans 7:14)

Are not living righteously nor walking after the Spirit:

“That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:4)

Are carnal and at enmity with God:

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” (Romans 8:7)

Are not pleasing to God:

“Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.” (1 Corinthians 7:19)

Do not believe in God’s goodness:

“But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully.” (1 Timothy 1:8)

Do not believe in the New Covenant:

“For this is the [new] covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts….” (Hebrews 8:10)

Do not know God:

“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.” (1 John 2:3)

Believe you cannot sin, and, therefore, do not need Jesus as your Savior:

“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” (1 John 3:4)

Do not love the children of God:

“By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.” (1 John 5:2)

Do not love God:

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” (1 John 5:3)

Are not a part of God’s New Covenant remnant:

“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:17)

Are not one of God’s saints:

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” (Revelation 14:12)

Have no right to the tree of life:

“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.” (Revelation 22:14)
