Again, if we read John 1:1-3 we see that Jesus has always been and everything we see, He created. Jesus told us, and I agree, that if we love Him we will obey His Commands. The coveted Ten Commandments and, honestly, the other 603 examples of how to implement the Ten, are the Commands of my LORD. These commands were never meant to save a single person.
When Adam sinned, mankind, like it or not, inherited the sinful nature of our forefather and mom. God/Jesus never expected anyone to live a perfect life, He above any other knew we can not because of our inheritance. But, and there is that monster three letter word, but, if we are to ever attempt to follow Jesus we must learn from our teachers and the Ten, molded down to the Two in the Gospel accounts, are our teacher of what is sin. Without that knowledge we can never glorify God.
Folks have, since the first time I taught the Ten Commandments were, as Paul pointed out, our Teacher of Sin, have tried to slam the table with I am not bound by or I do not live under, the Ten Commandments. This is, as we said when I played High School Basketball, trash talk. It has nothing to do, in this case with what I was teaching. I do not live under my First Grade Teacher but at the same time I live on and by the principals she taught me. The same is true of the other seen grades I managed to live through. Teacher are to instruct, nothi8ng more and so it is with the Ten Commandments.
