Did the Grace of God Cancel Biblical Commandments? - Free PDF study-62 Pages

October 13, 2017


Be blessed with this 62 page FREE PDF!

Why do we need a message like this today?

Look around and note the modern teachings spreading among the churches. There are those that emphasize we should keep Sabbath days, feasts and festivals, laws concerning foods, and other ritual laws of Israel. On the other hand, there are ministers, churches, and books that insist that we are not under any law and that we should not obey Old Testament commandments. I have heard it taught that we are not subject to any of the Ten Commandments because all commandments were under the law and they are not a part of the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

What teachings are right? What does the Scripture say about these things? What did the apostles teach?

In this 62 page treatise, you will see what the Word says about these things, and you will be able to share it effectively. My purpose is not argument, division, or trying to prove others wrong, but to enlighten, help, and bless.
