Did Jesus Add a Commandment?

We got this note in response to The False and Misleading Gospel of “Accepting” Jesus Christ:

“It is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.” Rom. 2:13
I think you need to find out which law he is speaking of in regard to the fact that a law has been added after Jesus’ crucifixion.

Paul’s reply:

We agree with Romans 2:13, so it is not clear where you disagree with us, or what point you are trying to make.

Do you believe the following, spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ?

“Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled. Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 5:17-19 MKJV).

There is no new Law, only a new heart and understanding given to those who receive Christ.

Paul Cohen

Victor then asked this question of Paul and Sara:

Did you know that the Law of Moses (the 10 Commandments) is the Law of Love?

Sara’s reply:


Matthew 22:35-40 MKJV
(35) Then one of them, a lawyer, asked, tempting Him and saying,
(36) Master, which is the great commandment in the Law?
(37) Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
(38) This is the first and great commandment.
(39) And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
(40) On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.

Victor’s reply:

This fellow says there was a law added, which, as you point out, is patently false. As nothing shall be subtracted from the Law, neither shall there be anything added to it because it is complete, representative of God’s nature and character. God missed nothing in the Ten Commandments. The difference is not in the Law, as you say, but in its fulfillment, which comes through Jesus Christ, Who gives us a new heart with the Law in it and the love for it. Any who think there is a new law added are still in their sin nature.

Diabolical Doctrine: Jewish Worship Practices Are Important to Keep
There’s a religious fad sweeping nominal Christianity, that of indulging in Jewish worship practices and traditions. Many searchers have determined there are precious truths to be discovered in types and shadows, with great and rare blessings. Seekers are flocking to this thinking because they are empty spiritually. They’re unfulfilled in their churches and their systems of belief and worship; they’re unfulfilled within because in unbelief.
The Necessity for Both Law and Grace
Gary Amirault (correspondent in our last series, Public Promoters of Falsehood Confronted Publicly) replied by sending us an article from J. Preston Eby. Quotes from the article appear in Victor’s reply. Gary also gave us this comment with the article: I think you two would have much more success if you took a real long look at how you operate. This article might shed some light on what I’m talking about.
