IF A TORAH COMMANDMENT APPLIES TO US TODAY WE MUST KEEP IT

We are responsible to obey all of the Torah we think applies to us today. The ten commandments define sin - in order to commit sin we must transgress one of those commandments. For example - if I refuse to love my neighbor as myself I would be committing sin even though that is not one of the ten commandments.

By refusing to obey I would be making myself god (ruler) before God and thereby breaking the first commandment.

John stated explicitly -

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

The only way to commit sin is to transgress the law because that is what sin is - transgression of the law.

If a Torah commandment applies to us today we must keep it.

The key is to understand that not all of Torah applies to us today - to know what does apply start with the New Testament and let it speak to you....

Keep the ten commandments and then grow from there.
