The Impossible Laws Of Man

Today we’re going to reach into our bag of tools and get out our common sense to figure some things out. Above all, God’s Law MUST make sense, or else we would all be lost. That makes it easy to discern the Truth. When i study God’s words in the Bible, i have to try and discern if Jesus really said that, or if some man changed the Bible and God’s words. So i have to see if what Jesus purportedly said actually matches up with His Doctrine. In Matthew Jesus teaches us about a lot of things, even adultery. Jesus was a man of few words, so i think we can condense part of Scripture to discern what Jesus was telling us.

St. Matthew Chapter 5

27 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said by them of old
time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a
woman to lust after her hath committed adultery
with her already in his heart.

At first glance, we think that Jesus is telling us not to even lust after women, lest we are guilty of adultery.

32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put
away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication,
causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall
marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

But it is the condition of man to lust after women. Man can’t help himself. You yourself would not be here today if your father did not lust after your mother. Jesus was saying that we are all guilty of adultery, in that sense. Then Jesus tells us that we should stay married except for fornication. However, i believe there are other reasons that people should get divorced, besides fornication. If one spouse becomes abusive, it’s over, for example. So i think what Jesus is teaching us is that according to the old Mosaic law, we would all be convicted of adultery. But Jesus told us that “Until John the Baptist” the Mosaic law was taught, but not after. Jesus threw out all the old Mosaic law except He condensed it down to the two greatest commandments. Jesus said “all the Law and the Prophets” comes down to the two greatest commandments. Jesus threw out all the stuff men wrote and the old superstitions and cut through the crap to give us the Truth. And He told us after John the Baptist we no longer preach trying to keep the impossible “laws of Moses” that are so confusing no one knows what it really means. So forget about all that stuff, preparation days and feast calendars and ALL of it. Keep the two greatest commandments, and thou shalt live. Jesus told us so, Himself.

Now it makes sense, because God is not going to make man fruitful and cause man to lust after women, then tell man it is a sin to be the way that God made him. No, God’s Law has to make sense. Jesus does not tell us that men and women are only allowed to do it in the missionary position or anything like that. All that type of stuff comes from man. God does not teach us anything about sexual habits, except what we are born with. God does not make it sinful, man does. Such as, men and women have oral sex all the time. If it is not an abomination for them to have oral sex, then it would not be an abomination for men to have oral, or anal sex. Should women only have all the fun? Of course not. This is private stuff between men and women and it’s not the business of other people what they do. This is what is talked about going home and doing in your closet privately. We don’t publicly parade certain things, out of common decency. But that doesn’t make it a horrible abomination just because you see a man and a woman making out in public and it disgusts you.

If people keep the two greatest commandments then they will be saved and go to Heaven. Period. Jesus told us that. It doesn’t have anything to do with their sexual practices. That’s none of your business, anyway. I don’t know what you do at home and i don’t want to know. It doesn’t have anything at all to do regarding whether you are righteous or not. But if we begin to judge others, for anything, then we ARE in violation of the two greatest commandments. That is something we need to pay attention to.
