The Law and Bondage

Let us take the world famous, Ten Commandments. They ask you to love the true God with all your heart, soul and strength. Not to make images of the true God; not to take his name in vain; not to steal, or covet or commit adultery etc. Like in other religions, these laws have certain characteristics about them.

One, religious laws are a Unit. "If you attempt to keep the whole law and yet stumble in one point, you become guilty of all.”

Two, religious laws could sustain you together, but not individually. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.


So, if you break one of the commandments, you are just as bad off, as having broken all of them.

Third, laws constrict you as long as you are in their jurisdiction. Unless you get out of their jurisdiction you have no hope but to stay under them.

There is a key to getting out of bondage.

Dear Dhanvin,

Thank you for your comment. I appreciate your taking the time to read and respond! God's word actually teaches that we are in bondage whether we believe it or not. We are in bondage, because we are unable to keep God's law fully.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this. Please email me at info@rameshrichard.com.

On behalf of the Ramesh Richard Team,

April

I read romans 6 , where paul talks about becoming slaves of righteousness from being slaves of sin.
He explains the process of sanctification very beautifully in the rest of the chapter.
