God says:
My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act?
Your pastor says the law is dead.
God says:
● Ecclesiastes 12:13 That's the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear Yahweh and obey his commands, for this is everyone's duty.
● Proverbs 28:9 He that turned away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
● Proverbs 10:8 The wise of heart will receive commands, but a babbling fool will be ruined.
● Matthew 5:17 Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. 18 For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
● Romans 2:13 For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.
● 1 John 2: 4 If anyone says, “I know Him,” but does not keep His Commandments, he is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But if anyone keeps His word, the love of God has been truly perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him:
James 1: 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and continues to do so—not being a forgetful hearer,

 

 

 

 

 

but an effective doer—he will be blessed in what he does.

Psalm 19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul.The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.8 The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart.The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.9 The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous.10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb 11 By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.12 But who can discern their own errors?

 

● Deuteronomy 11:19 Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.
● Jeremiah 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people
● 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
There are over 20 verses that prove beyond reasonable doubt that God's perfect law is still intact. (please review Is the law really done away with?)
Your pastor says the law is a yoke around your neck:
God’s says:
● Deuteronomy 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
● Deuteronomy 30:11 This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you to understand, and it is not beyond your reach.
● Revelations 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Your pastor says the Sabbath is changed
God’s says:
● Ezekiel 22:26,27 "Her priests (your pastors) have done violence to My law and have profaned My holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 27 "Her princes within her are like wolves tearing the prey, by shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain.…(there is not one verse in the entire bible changing it)
● Ezekiel 20:12 And I gave them my Sabbath days of rest as a sign between them and me. It was to remind them that I am the LORD, who had set them apart to be holy.

Your pastor says: Jesus declared all meat clean
God says:
● Mark 7:19 “For it doesn't go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body."
Church doctrine added the following to scripture “In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.” Ponder this: If Jesus said this, he couldn’t be our Savior. He would be sinning, breaking God’s command regarding dietary instructions. Be on your guard, if you encounter any verse that conflicts with all other scripture.

● Isaiah 65:1 I have stretched out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, 2 Who walk in a way that is not good, According to their own thoughts; 3 A people who provoke Me to anger continually to My face; 4 Who sacrifice in gardens,And burn incense on altars of brick;4 Who sit among the graves,And spend the night in the tombs; Who eat swine’s flesh, And the broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
● Isaiah 66:16 For by fire and by His sword, The Lord will judge all flesh; And the slain of the Lord shall be many. 17 “Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens After an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together,” says the Lord.
Your pastor says: "And so my judgment is that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God.
God says:
• Acts 15:19 It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not cause trouble for the Gentiles who are turning to God. …20 Instead, we should write and tell them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals, and from blood.21 For Moses has been proclaimed in every city from ancient times and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath.” (most of us skip over verse 21)
Your pastor says:
the law is only for the Jews:

God’s says:
● Galatians 3:26 You are all sons of God thru faith in Christ Yeshua 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, (or Christian) slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Yeshua 29 And if you belong to Christ then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.
● Romans 8:7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God's laws, and it never will. That's why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.
Your pastor says:
Paul says, you are under grace not the law.


Paul says:
● Galatians 5:17 For the flesh craves what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are opposed to one another, so that you do not do what you want.…18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
● 1 Corinthians 11: 1 You are to imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.
● Acts 24:14 "But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed
● Romans 8:14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God

Your pastor says:
Colossians 2:16 tells us not to judge people by what they eat or drink or how they celebrate holidays or God’s Sabbath day.

Paul says:
● Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holiday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

God is telling his children not to let the Gentiles judge for being obedient keeping God's laws and statues, all these will be observed in the millennium. This passage is taken from the letter to the Colossians, a group of people newly coming out of pagan customs and into Christ fellowship. Paul is cautioning new followers not to listen to the criticism of pagan worshippers. Pagan worship is contrary to God’s law and statutes

Your pastor says:
We are under a new covenant not required to keep the laws:

God says:
● Jeremiah 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people
● Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah
● Hebrews 8: 10 For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord. I will put My laws in their minds, and inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they will be My people.
● Ezekiel 36:26-27 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.

Your pastor says: the law was nailed to the cross
God says:
● Romans 8: 2 For in Christ Yeshua the law of the Spirit of life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
● Galatians 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. The “law of sin and death” escorts, or brings us, to Christ by pointing out that we are in bondage/under the curse. It is not until the "law of sin and death" teaches us that we are cursed and in bondage, that we can come to the Messiah in faith as our Savior. Without that knowledge we would have no reason to come to Him.
Your pastor says:
God changed everything for the gentiles because Israel couldn't keep His laws, God removed them and took them out of the way.

When you answer these questions keep in mind you are judging God's character.
1. Does God's word contradict itself?
2. Does God's word stand forever?
3. Does God do anything without revealing it through His prophets first?
4. Does God lie?
5. Does God change His mind, Does God always keep His promises?
God's word
● 1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
● Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
● John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken:
● 1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
● Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth His secret unto his servants the prophets.

Are you going to continue to follow the church that says scripture is changed or done away with, or will you follow God who says scripture cannot be broken?

● Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act.
