  • Hi Mike, It seems to me that good works follow God giving you faith and belief and when you're following him and focused on him... he gives you desire to listen to his commands and to do them... works not necessary for salvation.. I guess I see it like; do you wanna get a 'D' or an 'A'.. D is still... [read more]
  • A____ wrote: Dear mike, I know that the House of God is the pillar and ground of truth, but who exactly is this church, this house of God? Is this the few chosen? Is there any way you can show me this in scripture, as I struggle to answer this question. I'm unable to find much on it, except for the... [read more]
  • Mike, What is the difference between law of ordinances, moral law, and ceremonial law? Were the ten commandments, feast days, sabbaths, tithing, animal sacrifice and clean/ unclean meats abolished at the cross? What's the difference between the mosaic law and God's law? Why does the church of 7th... [read more]
  • L____ wrote: Hi, First of all I'd like to thank you for your ministry; it's nice to have fellowship with brethren albeit in an HTML manner.  I just have one question.  If I'm not mistaken, I have heard you say that Christ did not come to fulfill the law but to annull it. &n... [read more]
  • Posted March 16, 2004 Hi G____, I have just read your Two Pillars Of The New Covenant. I was pleased with your ability to see clearly that we cannot mix the teachings of the old covenant with the teachings of the new. That is rare enough, but you also understand that our changed life is no more of o... [read more]

First, you must understand that Jesus cannot and did not oppose the Torah. His teaching and life ministry was in complete harmony... [read more]
  • At the very beginning of my paper on The Law Of Moses Versus the Law of the Spirit, I point out that "God's law is the revelation of the very character of God Himself." While God himself has always existed, and while Christ is the physical manifestation of God the Father, neither the Father nor His ... [read more]
  • A proper understanding of the law of God is the single most difficult thing for Christians to grasp. Mat 5:17 is one of the most misunderstood scriptures in all of the Bible. Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Everyone seem... [read more]
  • Mike, Will the old covenant be practiced in the millennium? Like the holy days, the sabbath, animal sacrifices (Eze 43:18-27)? D____ Hi D____, Thank you for your questions. The answer to them all is an emphatic NO! In Christ there is no 'going back' to the "weak and beggarly elements to which we w... [read more]
  • Hello Mike, I'm not trying to be a pain in the neck, but I really want to understand a few things and I honor your wisdom in these matters. I have been reading about the 7 laws of Noah and have found that according to scripture, the "Ten Commandments" applied to the 12 tribes of Israel/ Jacob and t... [read more]
  • I don't think Jesus is correcting the Law of Moses when he said 'You have heard that it was said love your neighbors and hate your enemies.' The OT law commanded them to live at peace with their neighbors under Abraham's covenant, the father of our faith. I think Jesus is correcting Essene's teachi... [read more]
