Let us lay aside every weight (every burdensome yoke of the commandments of men) and THE Sin….the judging of others using that weight….the doctrines and commandments of men… as a basis for.
The sin does easily beset us when we serve the carnal commandments of men as we easily become judgmental of others who do not serve them. We want to be seen as “wise” by the keeping of certain doctrines and commandments of men and the using of them to judge others who do not keep them.
Hebrews 12:1 KJV (1) Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and
the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us,
Christ has made us free and so we are to lay aside the handwritings of church dogmas (what one thinks is true or believes –such as the handwriting of the tenets of faith) which are burdensome to keep.
They entangle us with the yoke of bondage as many serve THE sin by the judging of others (supposedly in God’s authority) with those handwritings. We must not be in bondage to the sin as Christ has freed us.
Again, THE sin …the judging of others…does easily beset us when we serve the handwritings of church dogmas as we easily can become judgmental of others who do not serve them. Judge not lest we be judged.
Galatians 5:1 KJV (1) Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith
Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of
He made us free from the handwritings of the church scribes of things that many “believe” are true as our trespasses have been forgiven by the nailing of them to His cross.
The handwritings (the churches’ documents: constitutions, tenets, ordinances, by-laws, etc) are against us and are contrary to us but He blots them out and frees us from the serving and worshipping of them which in turn serves the sin when we judge others. He sets us free from them.
Colossians 2:13-17 KJV (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the
uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him,
having forgiven you all trespasses; (14) Blotting out the handwriting
of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took
it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (15) And having spoiled
principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing
over them in it.
People JUDGE others using their handwritings of church “dogmas”… of what they think are true in their own minds to keep (their church tenets of faith, etc.) and are serving THE Sin by doing so.
The wages of THE Sin is the death. Our mortal body dies because of the serving of the sin…the judging of others as “evildoers” when they do not keep the handwritings of church dogmas.
Men desire to be teachers of the Law but do not keep the whole law with their picking and choosing of what commandments is included in their respective handwritings. They wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction.
(16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in
respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
(17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
The Sin is the same Sin from the beginning.
Desiring to be seen as “wise”, many serve the sin in the lie. They love and practice the lie and have the delusion of "peace and safety" in doing so.
Genesis 3:1-6 KJV (1) Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast
of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman,
Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? (2)
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the
trees of the garden:
The woman changes the truth of God IN the lie by adding a carnal commandment…. “neither shall you touch it” ….to God’s commandment and then presented it as though God had commanded it when He did not.
(3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,
God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest
Professing themselves as wise, they become fools as they changed the truth of God in THE lie and worship and serve the “creature”…that is, the formation of the carnal commandment (ordinance)…more than the Creator.
“Neither shall you touch it” was added and changed the truth of God in the lie. This changing of the truth of God with an added carnal commandment then becomes a basis for speaking evil of others in judgment. They judge others who do not keep the carnal commandment.
Romans 1:25 KJV (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is
blessed for ever. Amen.
“You shall not surely die” = “Killing, you shall not die”. There is supposedly peace and safety for “killing” another….being judge, jury and executioner by evil speaking of them.
Genesis 3: (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not
“For God does know”….that is, you are supposedly doing the “killing” another (judging another) with evil speaking in God’s authority.
“then your eyes shall be opened”….that is, you shall be seen as “wise”. Professing themselves as “wise” is being desirous of their own vain glory.
“you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil”……that is, be as judges (supposedly for God in His authority) which know what or who is good and evil and judge accordingly.
(5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes
shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Professing themselves as wise, they became fools.
(6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that
it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one
wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto
her husband with her; and he did eat.
The eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the using of the mouth to speak evil of others in the judging of them. We use the mouth to both bless God and to curse others ….which should not be.
If we speak evil of our brothers (who do not follow our handwriting of our church dogmas), then we are JUDGING (“you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil”). We are then not a doer of the law of Christ (love your neighbor as yourself) but are being a judge when there is only One Judge of another. Judging is not loving your neighbor as yourself.
James 4:11-12 KJV (11) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He
that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh
evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou
art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
All of the judging of others to “hell” is being done by the use of the handwriting of the church scribes as a basis for. This is the serving and worshipping of the “creature”….the ordinances of men….more than God.
We are told there is only One Lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy. Who are we to judge another using the added carnal laws….the commandments of men?
(12) There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who
art thou that judgest another?
We cannot eat from that “tree”. Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing of God (good) and also the cursing of men (evil)…speaking evil of them in judgment. Either make the tree good or make it bad as it cannot be both. the fruit of that "tree" is death.
James 3:9-18 KJV (9) Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and
therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
(10) Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My
brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Can a fountain send forth from the same place sweet water and bitter?
(11) Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and
bitter? (12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries?
either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and
The woman in the garden desired to be seen as wise (being desirous of vain glory) took of that tree.
Yet who is the wise man and endued with knowledge among us? It is shown by good behavior his works with meekness of wisdom not by speaking evil with the mouth wanting to been seen as wise motivated by the envy and strife in the heart.
(13) Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him
shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
(14) But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory
not, and lie not against the truth. (15) This wisdom descendeth not
from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. (16) For where envying
and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. (17) But the
wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and
easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without
partiality, and without hypocrisy. (18) And the fruit of
righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
