Please note, the title of this article is a direct and exact quote made by a commentator on the Before It’s News web page where I occasionally contribute material.
Please allow me to make this point very clear from the start, for, gladly, I would never write such an erroneous remark today even though, at one stage in my earlier wretched RELIGIOUS life, I believed the same deceptive evil satanic nonsense.
OK, so what’s wrong with this remark? EVERYTHING, is the plain and simple answer to that.
His opening statement is a sort of mealy mouthed confession, and I don’t say that disparagingly, because I was once as mealy mouthed as he is and it makes me cringe just to think of it. However, notice where he admits that none of us could ever keep ALL Yashua Messiah’s Laws, but the real meaning of his own ALL ENCOMPASSING statement of admission, that he cannot keep them, has not registered in his mind nor, more importantly, in his heart. Maybe he is still somewhat Scripturally ignorant and has not been taught properly, because James makes it all very clear here:
James 2:10 (KJV) For whosoever shall keep The Whole Law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (Emphasis mine)
This verse is poorly translated, because it does not transfer James’ sarcasm and he is often sarcastic in style of delivery in his letter. Here is another example:
James 1:27 (KJV) Pure religion (ritual) and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. (Brackets mine)
Notice how he mocks religion or ritual by calling it pure and likening ‘pure religion’ to something that is NOT religious or ritualistic at all i.e. looking after orphans and widows in their bereavement and suffering – this is agape Godly love in action, NOT religion – pure or otherwise.
Therefore, if we apply the same appropriate sarcasm to James 2:10 what we really find is James mocking the idea of us keeping The Whole Law without any slips or trip ups – ludicrous, so he mocks the whole idea of us being able to keep The Whole Law.
He then adds the more serious remark to bring us all back to earth: “and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
Now this is what my commentator ‘friend’ has missed completely and he has not grasped the seriousness of his blasphemous error, because he says: “he does the best he can” thinking that this is acceptable to The Father and Yashua Messiah. He thinks that offending points of The Law or failure in keeping some points of The Law, as long as HE is doing the best HE can, is all very fine and dandy with The Father and Yashua Messiah. Laughable or what? And never mind that HE is GUILTY OF BREAKING ALL THE LAW in doing the best he can and has still failed because he has offended in one or three points!!! As we do!!!
Whatever way we cut this, folks, OUR doing the best we can and it being acceptable to The Father and The Son means we are 1) erroneously thinking that anything less than perfection under His Grace is acceptable to The Father and The Son and 2) we are attempting to save ourselves through obedience to The Whole Law. OUR doing the best we can means we think our efforts at improving ourselves by obedience to The WHOLE Law are good enough for The Father and The Son.
Let’s also be clear, for Grace does NOT fit into this evil arrangement at all for, either we are under The WHOLE Law and attempting to keep it, or we’re completely under His Glorious Grace. There is no mix and match here and Grace is not a packet of Grace sticking plasters that we can pull out and cover over our failings at keeping The Whole Law. If you live by The Law then you will be judged by it and condemned by it – no messing and no Grace.
Here, though, is where we get into the real farcical stuff, because these “doing the best we can” types are, whether they like it or not, automatically failing to keep over 50% of The WHOLE Law, never mind one point of it, and James does say The WHOLE Law. Nowhere does he make mention of the imaginary ‘Ceremonial Law’ that these Judaising dog blasphemers frequently make use of to try and prove their satanic commandment keeping doctrine. Again, let’s be clear on this: THE HOLY SCRIPTURES MAKE NO MENTION OF A CEREMONIAL LAW, it’s not there folks, and it’s a lying construct of Judaising blasphemers within the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion – a complete fabrication – and a lie.
So what does this mean? It means they fail in making their animal sacrifices on the Old Covenant Festival Feast Days. They most likely will be wearing mixed cloths and eating unclean foods and no doubt, most of them, will be uncircumcised. Many will be keeping Sunday non-Sabbaths, although some will be keeping the seventh day Sabbath delusionally thinking it makes a difference. LOL. None, however, will have entered into His Eternal Sabbath Rest because of their Law keeping unbelief.
Finally he says he loves Him, but if he is not fully trusting in Him by NOT fully living under His Glorious Grace and pathetically trying to keep The Whole Law and failing at every turn, having NOT entered into His Sabbath rest, what kind of love is that? His life is a living insult to Yashua Messiah and yet in the next breath he says he loves Him. How does that work when daily he tramples all over Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice by invoking The Law as still binding upon him and making the lame duck excuse that he’s doing his best? This means he renders Yashua Messiah’s Grace useless because he has not accepted His Grace as being all powerful and all encompassing when dealing with us as new Spiritual men and women – new creations.
That is how serious his statement is in terms of its wickedness and yet as we read it we could be excused for falling for its benign sounding phraseology and that, my friends, is what we call demonic deception.
