Nailed to the Cross

young man reading small bible

This is the third post in a series, for the previous please click HERE.

I believe I have now established why one can scripturally believe that the Ten Commandments were not separate from the Torah in any material way. That being the case the following two verses undermine SDA teachings quite dramatically.

“by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.” Col 2:14 ESV

“by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace,” Eph 2:15 ESV

At the very least, the burden of proof is now on SDA to demonstrate Biblically that the Ten Commandments are separate.  They cannot just say that they are separate and expect anyone to take them seriously without clear, exegetical proof.

The next logical question is if the Ten Commandments are obsolete  as scripture teaches. Does that now mean that it is okay to murder, lie, commit adultery, etc? Well the answer to that is obviously no.  I will cover this in a later post.  There are still a great deal more verses that need to be studied before jumping to the good stuff!

      SDA twist the below passage to say that Jesus only fulfilled ceremonial law. But read it yourself, all of the law was fulfilled. There is no division of the law in which one stands and the other falls. It’s a single unit.

      For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
      Colossians 2:9-15 ESV

      Now juxtapose that with passages like Heb 8:13.

      You seem to be reading out of order. Go back to the first post in the new covenant series and work your way forward friend.
