Was Christ The End Of The Law?

 Did The Law Of YHWH – The Torah Ended With Christ?

Aim of this note is to find out on how valid Paul’s claim regarding the Torah ( Law ) being no longer applicable.

Paul a Self-Made Apostle and who never met Jesus preached that Jesus was the End Of The Law, and Abolished the Law of God?

Now, How true that Jesus  was the END OF THE LAW?

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. [ Romans 10:4 KJV ]

And, How true that Jesus  ABOLISHED THE LAW?

by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, [Ephesians 2:15 ESV]

We too often hear from Paulinian Christians that salvation according to them is just simply  accept Jesus as your savior and have faith in Jesus and FORGET that STINKY, CURSED LAW of GOD!!! Sounds madness, insanity isn’t it?

Now where did these Paulinian Christians got this novel idea?

It was Paul who originally preached that obedience to Law Of God is no longer necessary. We read Paul saying;

But now we are delivered from the law, [Romans 7:6]

Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, [ Gal 2:16]

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse [Gal 3:10]

In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old.Now that whichdecayeth andwaxeth old is ready to vanish away.[Heb 8:13]

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us,and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;[Colossians 2:14 KJV]

Surprisingly, What the Muslims use to prove that Law of Moses was still in effect and binding was also the very teaching used by Paulinian to assert that Law is no longer binding.

Lets quote the very verses in question:

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be “fulfilled.“[Matthew 5:18 KJV]

Christians argued that since the law according to them was already“fulfilled” oraccomplished thus in effects its no longer enforceable and binding! How tenacious and credible is Paulinian interpretation?
————————————————————————
There 3 ways actually to debunk this unfounded claims by the Christians;

 FIRST : Show lexically that”fulfilled” is not the appropriate word used when rendering the passage

SECOND : Show contextually that the intended meaning of the passage was to KEEP the Law Of Moses !

THIRD : Show some verses which correlate with what Jesus said.

Moving on…. Let us start with the
————————————————————————-

FIRST : Show lexically that“fulfilled” is not the appropriate word used when rendering the passage

The Greek word translated as “fulfilled” in  Matt 5:17 was  #4137 πληρόω “pleroo” {play-ro’-o}}
Looking at the lexicons, Greek “pleroo” has also a lot of possible meaning. Among those acceptable meaning are

“to perform”, “execute”, and “to fully preach”

Here is the verse in question : Matthew 5:17

10470938_10203240535966319_7782045852514493256_n

Online source : http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Mat&c=5&t=KJV#s=t_conc_934017

Now here and observed carefully The Old tricks they used – the usual dishonest translation :

Amazingly , The same Greek word“pleero”  was also used in  Romans 15:19… but this time it was correctlytranslated as “preached”!!!!

Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached {pleroo} the gospel of Christ. [Romans 15:19 KJV]

r_n

Online source  : http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Rom&c=15&t=KJV#s=t_conc_1061019

The context of the preceding verses( v12-v16) dictates that the disciples who were also deemed as “light” orguide  are duty bound to guide the mankind by following a certain set of rules or code ofethics and morality. This is the same true with what is intended meaning of  “pleero” in Romans 15:19. Guiding, instructing, and exemplifying the moral code, theological guidance that they carry.
However, inspite of same intended purpose, Paulinian Christians in order to uphold Paul’s doctrine, did not  usethe accurate rendering of Greek “pleero” in Matthew 5:17. They dishonestly translated the Greek “pleero” as fulfilled.  But, in Romans 15:19 they accurately rendered it as “preached”.!!!!

Therefore, keeping in mind of the lexicons and the manner it was used in Romans 15:19,
Matthew 5:17-19 can also be therefore read as

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to”pleero” {fully preached, perform, or execute }

——————————————————————————-

Moving on to the SECOND : Show contextually that the intended meaning of the passage was to KEEP the Law Of Moses !

Lets us cite the whole context to understand  what “pleero” in Mat 5:17 actually meant.

Matthew 5:12-21 KJV
12  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

 

{  Jesus been encouraging here his  little flocks that Men of God, The Prophets and their successors in the past  were always  been persecuted for delivering the message of God to humanity. Thus to be persecuted and to suffer – a thing not to be mourned over, but as among the chief blessings of life. That is, the reward will be great in the future world.To those who suffer most, God imparts the highest rewards. Hence, the crown of martyrdom has been thought to be the brightest that any of the redeemed shall wear; and hence many of the early Muslims sought to become martyrs, and threw themselves in the way of their persecutors, that they might be put to death.  I am just wondring how this”rejoicing” can come along with “Jesus” seems reluctant to die on his prayer on garden of Gethsemane, and his last cry “My God My God why have you forsaken me?  }
13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
{ Salt renders food pleasant and palatable, and preserves from putrefaction. So Muslims, by their lives and instructions, are to keep the world from entire moral corruption. By bringing down the blessing of God in answer to their prayers, and by their influence and example, they SAVE the world from universal vice and crime}

14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

{ The light of the world often denotes the sun, Joh_11:9. The sun renders objects visible, shows their form, their nature, their beauties, their deformities. The term light is often applied to religious teachers. See Mat_4:16; Luk_2:32; Joh_1:4; Joh_8:12;Isa_49:6. It is pre-eminently applied to Jesus in these places, because he is,in the moral world, what the sun is in the natural world. The Prophets and their successors, disciples, are lights of the world, because they, by their instructions and example, show what God requires, what is the condition of man,what is the way of duty, peace, and happiness the way that leads to heaven.}
15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
{  Neither do men light a candle … -The word rendered “candle” means any portable light, as a lamp, candle,lantern. Compare Mar_4:21; Luk_8:16; Luk_12:35. Jesus proceeded here to show them that the very reason why they were enlightened/guided was that others might also see the light, and be benefited by it. When people light a candle,they do not conceal the light, but place it where it may be of use. So it is with religion. It is given that we may benefit others. It is not to be concealed, but suffered to show itself, and to shed light on a surrounding wicked world. }
16  Let your light so shine before men,that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

{ Let your light so shine … – Let your holy life, your pure conversation, and your faithful instructions, be everywhere seen and known. Always, in all societies, in all business, at home and abroad, in prosperity and adversity, let it be seen that you are real Servant Of God. ..That they may see your good works – The proper motive to INFLUENCE us is not simply that we may be seen (compare Mat_6:1), but it should be that our One and Only Lord may be glorified.}

Can there be anything more clearer than that? It is so clear v12-v16 Jesus was exhorting them of their obligations, responsibilities in the matter of guiding humanity through proper conduct and right wisdom. Now here we comes for the  MISUNDERSTOOD verse :::
17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil / preach.

{  I guessed by now you  already have the idea of what Jesus had in mind when he said… “THINK NOT that I CAME TO DESTROY!!{Destroy what?}  THE LAW!  Now why would Jesus exhorted his disciples in v12-16 to be a light as a guide for the humanity if these disciple will not live with in a defined moral code, moral laws, ethics which is prescribed by God if it will end or fulfilled as what the Paulinian alleged? What standards or prescribed ways of living if we don’t have such a standards/Laws that would guide us in all our endeavors? Wouldn’t it become chaotic? That everyone will do whatever he please because there is no Law regulating his conducts? Certainly it would be. God can not allow us to live without a Laws prescribed by Him. Therefore, it is not logical that Jesus who knows his Father’s Will advocated that the Law ended or fulfilled by him! Matthew 5:17 therefore should have been correctly read as THINK NOT that I COME TO DESTROY/ABOLISHED the Law, BUT to FULLY PREACH and EXECUTE it { pleero }!!
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.

{ When will the heaven pass? The expression “Till heaven and earth pass” simply meansFOREVER!!  Jesus neverput an “end” nor destroy The Law. }
19  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.
{ Why would Jesus warns “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these” if after all these Laws will be sooner to be ended by him??? The warning will make sense only if  the Laws will be continuously binding!}

20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

{  Why would Jesus criticized the man-made oral traditions of the Pharisees if the Law of Moses too will be made into nothing because he will put an end to it? It makes no sense of course unless The Law of Moses is still binding }
21  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

{ Why would Jesus mentioned here the Law of Moses if it be will ended as what the Christians alleged? It makes no sense unless of course if it will be still binding }

Finally, the sermon of Jesus in this chapter culminated in :

48 :Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

{ God is perfect!Our final goal is to be with Him who is Perfect and Holy!  Jesus is telling that it is ONLY through following the Law of God which led us into perfection!!!  Please compare this withPeople who reject Law Of Moses on Matthew 7:23 and 1 Cor 9:21  }
—————————————————————————————————
Moving on to the THIRD :  Show some verses which correlate with what Jesus said.

Except for Paul who considered The Law Of God as a CURSE,  Genuine Prophets and their Apostles unconditionally LOVE the Laws of God!!!

The BIG Questions that every Paulinian should answer is : Who are they TO ABOLISHEDthe Law when God clearly stated that The Law – The Torah is ETERNAL?

ABRAHAM Loves the Laws of God

Genesis 26:5 KJV

Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

MOSES Loves the Laws of God

Deuteronomy13:4

It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.

Deuteronomy28:15

However, if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you:

Deuteronomy29:31

The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.

Deuteronomy30:10

if you obey the LORD your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this BOOK of the Law and turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

David  Loves The Law of God

Psalms 19:7-11 KJV

7  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

8  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure,enlightening the eyes.

9  The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea,than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

St John – One of The Genuine Disciples of Jesus : Loves The Law Of God
1 John 5:2-3 KJV

2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

10457958_10203240741491457_3397745369009030440_n

St James – The Just, One of the genuine  Apostles of Jesus : Loves The Law Of God

But whoso looketh into the “PERFECT LAW” of LIBERTY and “CONTINUETH” therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the “WORK,” this man shall be blessed in his “DEED.” JAMES 1:25

I think this will SUFFICE to demonstrate my point that … Loving God is only through KEEPING his COMMANDMENTS and applying the Eternal Laws throughout his lives!

Conclusion : Only Satan HATES the Law of God !

10410111_10203240747691612_104208671652269506_n

Can you people believe on what you have read? Yes! This Insane Pharisees – Saul/Paul of Tarsus deemed the Eternal Law of God as a CURSED!!!! Now who hate most and love to violate the Laws of God? Satan of Course! But Paul of Tarsus is more evil, treacherous than Satan, Paul even ABOLISHED the Whole Law Of God and proclaim himself ABOVE the Law of God!!!

10446521_10203240746171574_3338465014804988393_n

Paul does what he wants when he wants to do it. God’s wrath doesn’t matter to him because he is ABOVE THE LAW! Consider these verses of Paul:

All things are lawful unto me … all things are lawful for me but I will not be brought under the power of “ANY!” 1ST CORINTHIANS 6:12

Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. ROMANS 14: 5

10422948_10203260411863204_335578776388719252_n

Paul twists the truth and says:

“If you think it is sin then it is sin, but if you think it is good then, “IT IS GOOD!”As long as you believe a thing to be truth, it is truth! So says Paul.

Paul then says:

  • For whether we “LIVE” we live unto the Lord; and whether we “DIE,” we die unto the Lord: whether we “LIVE” therefore, or “DIE,” we are the Lord’s. ROMANS 14: 8

Paul / Satan says:

Forget about the Law because it doesn’t matter what you do! You are going to Heaven whether you follow Him or not because God loves you too much to kill you right?”

Lastly Paul finishes his lies with a ridiculous statement:

  • Happy is he that condemns not himself in that thing which he allows. ROMANS 14: 22

If you don’t think about your sins then you won’t feel bad about them. Again this man’s thinking is warped. Neither he nor anyone that follows his new philosophy can do any wrong!

“Hurry, Hurry folks! Step right up and get your “Get out of Hell free” gospel that allows you to sin and still go to Heaven all EXPENSES paid!”

One response to “Was Christ The End Of The Law?
