Where does it say the commandments were nailed to the cross? If we are not to keep the commandments, then we would be free to sin.


I read your article about the commandments being nailed to the cross.  I can't seem to find reference to that in the Bible. But I have found in several books stating that we are under the law and even Christ said to keep His commandments (by the way the Scriptures do not say Jewish commandments). As a matter of fact it does not say Jewish Feast also, it says God's commandments and Feast.

If we are not to keep His commandment, then we would be free to steal, murder, rape and do all the rest. We would not have to worry about God; just make sure that we don't get caught by society!



"And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross" (Colossians 2:13-14).

"For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity" (Ephesians 2:14-16).

"But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, "You shall not covet."" (Romans 7:6-7).

Your last argument is false because you assume that there was no law given in replacement of the Law of Moses.

"But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious" (II Corinthians 3:7-11).

"For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second" (Hebrews 8:7).

"Then He said, "Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God." He takes away the first that He may establish the second" (Hebrews 10:9).
