Check this new book out and you will be encouraged and shown how Paul does NOT teach that the Law was done away with as so many try to say.

Jan McFarland:

I feel this book accurately explains those sections of Scripture that can be confusing or appear that Paul is teaching that the ‘law’ is done away with. It puts those hard to be understood passages of Paul into context. “Not Under the Law” helped with my own understanding and also gives me concise answers for friends who are coming into Torah. All those, “What about this verse…” questions are easy to answer now because of this book. Paul did not preach or teach lawlessness. He did not and would not contradict the Word and this book shows why. It is a good reference to share with others!

Your Own Tradition



In the book of Mark we read of an instance when certain Pharisees and scribes confronted Jesus about the fact that some of his disciples were eating bread without first washing their hands – a specific ritual of hand washing being a tradition of the elders.

Jesus called them hypocrites, stating that while they honored Him with their lips, theIr hearts were far from Him. He said that it was in vain that they worshiped Him teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Jesus said that they rejected the commandment of God in order that they might keep their own traditions.

What had happened is that the scribes and Pharisees had added their own rules and regulations to the laws of our Creator – man made traditions – some of which, if accepted, made the commandments of God impossible to keep.

We know from other scripture passages that Jesus openly violated some of those traditions such as healing a man on the sabbath – demonstrating that it is not wrong to do good on the sabbath day.

Today there are those who would lead us to believe that the fact that Jesus healed on the sabbath proves that we no longer have to concern ourselves with the fourth commandment – that Jesus himself broke that commandment.

But no – Jesus was falsely accused of breaking that commandment, when in fact all that He did was disregard the commandments of men that made it impossible to keep. He never broke any of the commandments, for if He had done so, He would not qualify as a sinless sacrifice.

In our day and age, just as in times past, religious leaders continue to reject the commandments of God in order that they might keep their own traditions: Not traditions that add to our Creators commandments but rather traditions that attempt to abrogate or do away with the commandments that He wrote in stone.

Some would tell us that as believers, under grace, we no longer have to concern ourselves with those commandments – while at the same time, aspects of worship, known to be pagan in origin, such as Easter, Christmas and Sunday rest – traditions of men – are defended. With the first four commandments gone – anything and everything can be ascribed to the worship of our Creator.

We have an adversary who cares not whether we add to God’s commandments or whether take away from them just as long as we are off the narrow path that leads to life.

Let us recall the admonition of the Psalmist: The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. The Lord himself will preserve His words forever and no man will ever add to or subtract from them.

Beware lest any man spoil YOU through philosophy and vain deceit, after the TRADITIONS OF MEN, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Romans 14 Meaning – by Richard Rives

Romans Chapter 14
has nothing to do with the seventh day sabbath.
It is in reference to fast days.

The Pharisees required fasting two days per week.
See Luke 18:12 …I fast twice in the week….

1Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. 2For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. 3Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not Continue Reading

Remember the Sabbath Day – by Richard Rives

TO HEAR A 2 MIN. JUST THE FACTS AUDIO SEGMENT RELATING TO THIS SUBJECT:

“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

We observe that in the book of John, Jesus tells us that in order to bear fruit we must abide in him. He goes on to tell us that the way we abide in him is to keep His commandments. The instruction to keep the sabbath day holy is Continue Reading

Today Contemporary Christianity has not only allowed truth to fall, but it has thrown truth in the street as a gesture of religious tolerance and compromise. It has given the adversaries of scripture exactly what they need to substantiate their claims that what most present as Christianity is nothing more than redefined pagan mythology. Educated theologians know that; yet they continue to present a compromised gospel filled with pagan tradition that never had anything to do with Christ. There has never been a more important time in the history of mankind for those called out as servants of our Creator to confront the philosophy and vain deceit that would lead people away from our Savior.
