Neither the Tribe of Israel nor Judah Is my answer to Buddy Mauldin’s question to me in his letter to the editor of June 24. (Mr. Kimbrell, which tribe are you, Israel or Judah, which he gave the new covenant to?)
I am a Christian. The only one of the 10 commandments that is not binding on Christians is to keep the Sabbath day holy.
Christians worship on Sunday, the first day of the week. Take the Lord’s Supper Acts 20:7 - Now on the first day of the week when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.
Christians give their tithes and offerings on Sunday, the first day of the week. I Corinthians 16:1-2 - Now concerning the collection for the Saints, as I have given orders to the Churches of Galatia, so you must do also. On the first day of the week, let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that
there be no collections when I come.
That old law was given to one nation, the Jews. In Isaiah 2:1-3 we are told a new law would begin at Jerusalem to all nations. In Luke 24:47 - And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in is name to all nations beginning at Jerusalem. If you will read Hebrews chapter 8, 9, and 10 you will see that the old law was insufficient and needed to be replaced.That is why, Mr Mauldin, you should have read Hebrews 8:7 - For if the first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second.
I am so glad we are under that second one, the perfect law of liberty.
