Item description for And Then There Were Nine: How to live up to ten commandments by David Searle...
Overview The argument of this movement is simple: Christ is the end of the law...(Rom. 10:4) means that the Ten Commandments are abolished and the only 'Law' governing New Testament Christian is the Law of Love (John 15:17, This is my command: Love each other). This teaching, alas, was initiated by a Korean who, while studying theology in London, joined one of the many 'fellowship churches' there, and then took the interpretation of 'Law' he learned there back to his own land. Before we study each of the Ten Commandments in turn, we look first at the introduction to the Commandments given in Exodus 20:1-2. Soft cover.
Publishers Description There has been an erosion of the role of the Ten Commandments in the life of today's church. There has been a twofold pressure - both from outside, and inside, the church. From outside the church, the post-modern world-view regards regulations that restrict personal choice as old fashioned. Whilst most Christians would feel that they are not in agreement with such concepts, they have been subtly influenced by them. From inside the church, ideas have gained ground that the Ten Commandments have been superseded by other commandments from Jesus. Whilst most people base these ideas on biblical grounds, they do also reflect the change in world-view surrounding the church. David Searle clearly shows the distinctions between the Ten Commandments and other Old Testament law. He demonstrates that there is still a role in your life for the Ten Commandments. He explains the background to each of the commandments and what they mean for you today. He also explains how the Ten Commandments are there for you to enjoy the Christian life.
