Do we need to keep the 10 commandments to maintain our righteousness

Recommended Posts

P.S. Here's a really cool video on the subject too:

The DNA is made up of nucleotides of adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C).

A always connects with T
T always connects with A
G always connects with C
C always connects with G

Connections of the 10-rung ladder in 360 degree turn of DNA:

Each corresponding commandment is linked to the other.
#1 Have no other God - #6 Do not murder
To murder is to show you are above the other making yourself God.

#2 Worship no image - #7 Do not commit adultery
To commit adultery is to worship the image of the other.

#3 Do not profane the Name of God - #8 Do not steal
To profane is to diminish God and steal from His reverence

#4 Remember the Sabbath - #9 Do not lie about another
To lie is to exert an effort to deceive rather than rest in the truth.

#5 Honor your parents (Authority) - #10 Do not covet people
To honor is to give respect to whereas covet is to take what's desired

We are saved by grace alone through faith alone....
and because we are righteous we will do good works....


One Thing

For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. Romans 3:20 (English Standard Version)

Leads To Another

But now apart from the law, a righteousness of God has been revealed, being testified by the Law and the Prophets; even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ to all and upon all who believe. For there is no distinction, for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; whom God set forth whom God displayed publicly as a mercy seat, through faith in his blood, for a demonstration of his righteousness, because in God's forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed; to demonstrate his righteousness at this present time, so that he would be just, and the justifier of him who has faith in Jesus.

Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. By what manner of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith. For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is not he the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since indeed there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith, and the uncircumcised through faith.

Do we then nullify the law through faith? May it never be. No, we establish the law. Romans 3:21-31 (New Heart English Bible)


Be Blessed Beloved Of The KING

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27 (King James Bible)
Love, Your Brother Joe
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalms 119:160 (King James Bible)
The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.
Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.
It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter. Here too, Heaven is opened and the gates of Hell disclosed.
Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully.  It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.
It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

Mark 12:30

30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’[a]This is the first commandment.[


Matthew 5:17-20

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 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.

19 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.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.


God gives us HIS conscience by His Holy Spirit making His home in our hearts that GUIDE and HELP to lead us AWAY from sin and to deliver us from evil.

Te Holy Spirit of God is our HELPER that Christ Jesus mentioned we who choose Christ Jesus will receive.

John 16:7 Christ Jesus said:

7But I tell you the truth, it is for your benefit that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. 8And when He comes, He will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:…


John 15:26 Christ Jesus said:

25But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated Me without reason.’ 26When the Advocate comes, whom I will send you from the Father — the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father — He will testify about Me. 27And you also must testify, because you have been with Me from the beginning.…


John 14:26 Christ Jesus said:

25All this I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you. 27Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid.…


Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct[a] your paths.

We don't maintain our righteousness, The Christ (Jesus) does that Heb. 7&8

So, the big question is will not obeying the law make me unrighteous?

No, but if we are continually breaking God's law it is a sign we do not have His indwelling righteousness in us.

1Jn 3:7  Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous.

With a little more context:

Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
