the cross completes the law

when god laid the life of jesus down it completely completed the law. it was finished. jesus was the only one that would ever live a perfect life according to the law. he had to be perfect to be our lamb, and nobody else will ever be perfect again.

likewise, there can be NO new laws after his life on earth was complete. that was it, the torah was sealed at his human death. there are some 613 commandments in the law which define sin. there can not be new sins added later. 613 is plenty.

the epistles are some good godly advice, but they are not commandments. your pastors may also have some good godly advice, but again, not commandment.

of course there are many things that the commandments don't address directly that are still sin. we each of us know what is and isn't for us. some of us just ignore the pleadings of the friendly ghost.

however, as far as accusing others of sin, it really had better be spelled out in the commandments or you are in sin. sin means literally 'to miss the mark.' it sort of implies that you at least tried to hit the mark. if people keep on moving the mark wherever the heck they want to without having to follow the rulebook, nobody will EVER even get close.

i would never recommend not listening to the epistles. however, they are the opinions of man and NOT prophetic writings of god. as such, neither are they commandments.

in addition, many of these communications were written to address specific situations in time and culture and are not one size fits all instructions.

the whole bible is god breathed, but the whole bible is NOT commandment.

commandments, or the law, are mostly in leviticus and deuteronomy, but whatever you belive, there can be NO commandments from god AFTER the human death of christ.

christ lived on earth as the eternal example that it is possible that a man could live a perfect life within the law. there can be no new laws after that. it would defeat the whole thing.
