Matthew 5:17-19 KJV, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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. 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.”
EG White, SOP Vol 2, 1877, p. 218, “If the law of God could have been changed or abolished, then Christ need not have come to a fallen world to suffer the consequence of man’s transgression. Jesus came to explain the relation of the law of God to man, and to illustrate its precepts by his own example of obedience.”
“Those who disobey the commandments of God, and teach others to do the same by their example and doctrine, are condemned by Christ. They are the children of the wicked one, who was the first rebel against the law of God. Having explicitly declared his reverence for his Father’s law, Jesus in these words condemns the practices of the Pharisees, who were strict in their outward observance of that law while their hearts and lives were corrupt.”
|Correct view of the One True God and His government in (Deuteronomy 6:4 and John 4:22).||Erroneous View of Trinity (3 in 1 persons/beings/gods) Therefore unbiblical. Exaltation of papacy as a substitute of Christ.|
|Denied Jesus as the Son of God (Matthew 26:63-65)||Denied Jesus as the literal Son of God by replacing Christ with God the Son and added God the Holy Spirit in violation of Exodus 20:3.|
|Restricted the 7th day Sabbath with man made burdens which their leaders would not keep.||Changed the 7th day Sabbath in Exodus 20:8-11 with the 1st Day of the week and called it the Lord’s day which is misrepresentation of Revelation 1:10. Then replaced the 2nd commandment about idols.|
|Kept the Letter of the law (10 commandments) void of the Spirit of love and compassion.||Kept the traditions of men and voided the first 4 commandments of God’s Law.|
|Blind disobedience||Deliberate Disobedience|
|Outward religion||Religion of human nature and carnality|
|From Abraham||From Pagan|
|Exclusive by blood. Salvation by works.||Conquered others by shedding blood. Salvation by works.|
|Persecuted and crucified Christ and His disciples.||Persecuted and murdered the followers of Christ for 1260 years dark ages.|
EG White, SOP Vol 2, 1877, Pp. 218-219, “Jesus taught that the law of God should regulate the thoughts and purposes of the mind. True godliness elevates the thoughts and actions; then the external forms of religion accord with the Christian’s internal purity; then those ceremonies required in the service of God are not meaningless rites, like those of the hypocritical Pharisees.
Many religious teachers of today are themselves breaking the commandments of God, and teaching others to do so. In place of those holy commandments, they boldly teach the customs and traditions of men, regardless of the direct testimony of Christ that such ones should be ‘least in the kingdom of Heaven.'”
John 14:15 KJV, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
The only True God gave His only begotten Son Jesus Christ because He is love.
Sincerely in the Blessed Hope.
