The Apostle Paul alludes to the Law of Liberty in the following verse: Romans 14:22-23 (NASB) 22 The faith which you have, have as your own conviction before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. 23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not from faith is sin. The ...

The phrase "νόμου ἐλευθερίας μέλλοντες κρίνεσθαι" reads as "(the) law of freedom being about to be judged". Where this "law of liberty" comes into being is from John 13:34, A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. Whereas the Law could be summed up in commandments,(Matt. ...

Paul is talking about the Jews, especially Pharisees. They knew the law, old testament. That's why they will be judged according to it. They knew it and still sinned against it because they crucified Christ. Jesus says in John 19:11, that the greater sin have the ones who handed him over because they knew the old testament and still didn't recognize Jesus ...

In Romans 1:16, Paul says, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16) This latter phrase is repeated in the immediate context of Rom 2:12 as well, "There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and ...

According Rav Moshe Shapiro in his book Ma'amakim, Torah forbids consumption of all non-domestic animals, because their nature is so absorbed in them, that when it's eaten, it's transformed to the person's body and he became more animalistic.

Pork is/was prohibited because swine can't sweat and any poisonous substance it may have eaten will be stored in the fat of the animal: Another issue with the pig is that it doesn’t have any sweat glands. Sweat glands are a tool the body uses to be rid of toxins. This leaves more toxins in the pig’s body.

very nice human rationalizations, but none of these reasons is given in the Hebrew bible, because the simple reason is that this is a commandment from God. If a reason were given, then a person might come along some time later and give his own take on why that reasoning no longer applies as we see above. The same reasoning can be applied to all ...

According to "Blood on the Streets," by Lord Rees Moggs and James D. Davidson, the prohibition did not pertain to the Bible per se, but was given solely by God to the Israelis (and through Mohammed, to the Muslims). The commonality between the two groups (and other Semites) was that they were living in the hot, dry Middle East. That is to say that the ...

In the Hebrew Scriptures, death was "dirty." For example, contact with anything dead (whether animal or man) made the Israelite unclean in the ritual sense. Thus any scavenger was not appropriate for human consumption, since such animals consumed the refuse and/or carcasses of other animals. Only animals who chewed the cud (and split the hoof) were consumed ...

Pork or rare meat was forbidden in the Bible, because for a simple hygienic reasons from long ago times when especially in the South, in hot countries and the desert you had no cooling or a veterinarian who told you the pork was healthy and free of any parasites. But some religions have made an iron law out of it. E.g. in Jewish and Islamic law pork is one ...

In Romans 1-3, Paul teaches the Gentiles without the law of Moses were guilty of sin before God and the Jews who were under the law of Moses were also guilty of sin before God concluding that all have sinned. Contextually Romans 3:28 refers to the law of Moses. Today we a justified by a system of faith that is separate from the works of the law of Moses. In ...

According to Matthew 19:9, getting divorced does not cause a woman to become an adulteress (or a man to become an adulterer); getting divorced and then marrying someone else does (unless the husband or wife committed fornication beforehand). This is why Paul says in 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 (NKJV): Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A ...

This is part of a series of illustrations on interpreting the law[1] We need to know how to interpret the entire series of illustrations in Matthew 5:17-48, before we can be confident we are understanding the specifics of verse 32. The illustrations are part of Jesus' explanation of how to interpret the law, and that he has come not to abolish the law but ...

The marriage tie can be broken only by death (Rom. 7:3) or fornication. Hence, to have a divorce for any other reason is to commit adultery. But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife, except for fornication, and marries another, commits adultery; and he who marries her who has been divorced commits adultery. (Matt. 19:9) So then if, while the ...

The context indicates that the people are still judged -- thus, some transgression must still be "charged" or "accounted" to them. Look and the verse after it: Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses [since death happened, there must be sin and transgression], even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam [Adam sinned against a specific ...
