Is JESUS against The Ten Commandments?

(I have almost no scriptures memorized.) - The reason I ask is that I think JESUS was called a law breaker when he healed on The Sabbath Day. When this was brought up to HIM, he said , "Is it lawful to do good on The Sabbath or to do evil." (Something like that I think) The question I believe is unanswered and came about when JESUS healed someone on The Sabbath Day.

 

I've also been told that in order to get into Heaven all one has to do is to believe that JESUS came back from the dead. That was told to me by a young counselor at a Christian Summer Camp. I've learned as well that it is by faith that we will be saved, not deeds. --- I've learned though that we are supposed to follow all the rules because we love CHRIST. Not working on The Sabbath Day has brought up a lot of trouble for me. I read above that someone wrote basically that, "if one breaks one law, they've broken them all". What I've read of The Sabbath Day law is that we are to get all our work done in 6 days and that it be a day of worship. I don't always want to worship on The Sabbath and I don't think I usually finish all my work in the 6 days before the Sabbath.

Jesus didn't violate the Sabbath.  Jesus kept the entire law perfectly.  The Pharisees accused Jesus of violating the Sabbath, but those were baseless trumped up charges.   They condemned Him when healed no matter what day of the week it was.   Jesus broke a lot of man made traditions, but He never broke any of the 10 commandments.

 

The Israelites were told to keep the Sabbath holy....   they were to do no work on the sabbath....    Jesus admitted to working on the Sabbath and even more the Father had been too.....

Jesus came not to abolish the law of the profits but to fulfill them. We are saved by his grace and mercy.

Jesus came to fulfill the law.  Paul says the spirit of the law is more important.

The old covenant taught us to fear God and if we broke any of his law we would die.

 

Since it should be obvious that we really can't follow that law without falling short, he gave us blood sacrifice of Jesus to break that curse of death if we would only accept his free gift and do our best to follow him.....   Oddly when we follow the commandments that Jesus gave us properly we will not even want to break those ten laws......     and as of the Sabbath to remember to keep it holy......    Well that's not a one day a week thing, it's a way of life

 

Is Jesus against the ten commandments......   no not really, but he did make them non effect if we do his will.

Jesus became a curse for us. He did not abolish the 10 commandments, but He fulrilled them.He became our commandments. if you read well He said, 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.

all the laws and prophets was actually fulfilled in Christ. Jesus gave that prophesy because He actually came to fulfill it, Psa_40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me. Heb_10:7  Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 
you should understand the timing of Jesus, He had about of things to do and He was very wise to making sure He did them without errors or contradiction, because He Himself gave them the torah. the truth of the matter is this, you cannot understand scripture except you are saved. there was nothing wrong with the 10 commandments, Heb 8:8  For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 
Heb 8:9  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. they could not keep it because of their heart of unbelief. that is why Jesus said, Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. old testament is not born or spirit. in fact you have to just first believe in Jesus as a new covenant in God, because this topic can never be explained with few lines

No Jesus is not against the 10 Commandments. The idea of the sabbath is to dedicate 1 day a week to God. It doesn't have to be any specific day. I think America was better when most people made it Sunday, but that was a long time ago.

 

It's interesting that you brought this up because lately God is dealing with me about keeping 1 day a week for Him. I'm not sure yet what He wants me to do. But I think He would love it if most Americans would observe one day a week for God. Everyone can't do the same day. Pharmacists, are one good example, along with Docs, nurses, Police,  firemen, etc. But non essential occupations can and should keep one day Holy.

Is JESUS against The Ten Commandments?

Many Christians make it see that way. Heroes of the faith have had to contend against such notions through the centuries.

 

John Calvin:

. “Some unskilful persons, from not attending to this, boldly discard the whole law of Moses, and do away with both its Tables, imagining it unchristian to adhere to a doctrine which contains the ministration of death. Far from our thoughts be this profane notion.”

John Wesley:

“In the highest rank of the enemies of the gospel of Christ, are they who openly and explicitly ‘judge the law’ itself, and ‘speak evil of the law;’ who teach men to break (to dissolve, to loose, to untie the obligation of) not one only, whether of the least or of the greatest, but all the commandments at a stroke. . . . The most surprising of all the circumstances that attend this strong delusion, is that they who are given up to it, really believe that they honor Christ by overthrowing His law, and that they are magnifying His office while they are destroying His doctrine! Yea, they honor Him just as Judas did when he said, ‘Hail, Master, and kissed Him.’ And He may as justly say to every one of them, ‘Betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? It is no other than betraying Him with a kiss, to talk of His blood, and take away His crown; to set light by any part of His law, under pretense of advancing His gospel. Nor indeed can anyone escape this charge, who preaches faith in any such a manner as either directly or indirectly tends to set aside any branch of obedience: who preaches Christ so as to disannul, or weaken in any wise, the least of the commandments of God.”

Martin Luther:

“Nowadays there is a novel idea afoot! According to the promoters of this idea, the Law (that is, the 10 Commandments) should be completely removed from the Church. This is nothing else but deplorable and irreverent.

“The entire Bible teaches that it is the Law which must initiate repentance…..Sin and death are not exposed by a Word of grace and comfort, but only by the Law.”

“Exhort your household to learn them word for word, that they should obey God…For if you teach and urge your families things will go forward.”

Blessings Amethyst

    Welcome to Worthy................your understanding is correct,,,,,we are Saved through our faith in the knowledge of Who our Lord & Savior is & that He did die & was risen from the dead on the third day.......& through this faith we receive the Grace of God by which we are Saved

     Jesus said very simply.......

 

“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.                                                         John 14:15

       It is because we love Him & He abides in us that we have no desire to do the things we are asked not to do & we want to do what is good......don't worry,Beloved Sister.......it is a process,a renewing of the mind,a transformation & becoming a new creature in Christ Jesus....for some it is instantly & for others slow & steady but always by the Power of His Holy Spirit

      Beloved,seek Him earnestly,pray......build a relationship with the Lord,read his Word(begin with the Gospel of John)and just let go & let God

God never said "go to church on Sunday".....He said,"Remember the Sabbath & keep it Holy"......we Christians call the Sabbath "the Lords Day",well everyday is the Lords Day,,,,,,,,Why not remember them all & keep them holy?

                                                                                                                                           With love-in Christ,Kwik

Please take the time to read this......    it is very important concerning the subject of this thread.

 

 

Matt 25:31-26:1

31 "But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 "And all the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. 34 "Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35'For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.' 37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? 38'And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39'And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' 40 "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' 41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.' 44 "Then they themselves also will answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?' 45 "Then He will answer them, saying, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 46 "And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."


NASB

 

Here is a group of people that Jesus is sending to hell.    Can you tell me which of the ten commandments they violated.

 

How about love your neighbor  (not one of the ten).

 

It appears that one can go through life and not break one of the ten commandments and go to hell.

 

We should be talking about the commandments Jesus gave us when he was here rather than the old covenant commandments.
