    THE

    TEN

    COMMANDENTS

    ELDER BOBBY SCOTT
    February 1996


    Eccles 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
    (KJV)

    Eccles 12:14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
    (KJV)

    (This means all works, both the sinner and the just, shall be brought into judgment)

    1. Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (KJV)

    2. Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: (KJV)

    3. Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (KJV)

    4. Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (KJV)

    5. Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (KJV)

    6. Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill. (KJV)

    7. Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. (KJV)

    8. Exodus 20:15 Thou shalt not steal. (KJV)

    9. Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (KJV)

    10.Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's. (KJV)



    All of my life I have believed that the Ten Commandments were from God to the world of mankind. For He said I come not to call the righteous but the sinner to repentance. It seems strange to have to take the scriptures to prove that the Law of the Commandments are to the world of mankind, for it is not God=s will that any would perish, but that all would come to repentance. First what does man have to repent of. The scripture says that all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. To sin one has to transgress the Law of the Commandments, for that is what the scriptures teach us that sin is, and if the Law of the Commandments is not to the world, then the world has never sinned and would not have anything to repent of. When I was a sinner in the world I knew it was wrong to lie, steal and kill, because something inside was teaching me that.

    To hear preachers say that the only thing in the bible to sinners is repent, is to not be able to preach the story of Jesus, how He died for your sins whether you love Him or not, to flee the wrath of God, stand on the walls of Zion and tell my people of their transgressions and the Law of the Commandments. We dropped the Mud River Association for preaching that very thing that the only thing in the bible to sinners is repentance. For the life of me I can not understand such doctrine. Cornilus=s prayers and alms came up before God before he ever became a Christian. When someone asked, what must I do to be saved? You must first tell them about Jesus and if they will believe then they can repent and be born again. Paul said I claim to know nothing among you saving Jesus and Him crusified. Jesus said go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to ever creature. The Gospel includes more than to repent. All of the preachers I can read about preached the Word to a lost and dying world. Amen

    John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (KJV)

    Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, (KJV)

    Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; (KJV)

    Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (KJV)

    Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (KJV)

    How could the Grace of God teach us to deny ungodliness, except it first teach us what ungodliness is. Which is to transgress The Law of The Commandments.

    Romans 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. (KJV)


    Romans 7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. (KJV)

    Romans 7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. (KJV)

    I guess that the most plain scriptures which show that the law is to the world is as follows if men will have it, but some will not believe even though the scripture says so:


    1 Tim 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:11 According to the glorious gospel (here the scripture shows that the Law of Commandments are a part of the Gospel and Jesus said preach the Gospel to every creature, not only just repent) of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; (KJV)

    I have tried to understand why some say that the Law of the Commandments are not to the world and I suppose they read the following scriptures and get that understanding, but Jesus continued to preach the prophets and the Law and when He said He came not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill, the book of Luke says what He came to fulfill, (the things written in the books of Moses and the Pslams concerning Him) and the scripture say that the Law and the Prophets are still a witness unto us today.

    Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. (KJV)


    Matt 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. (KJV)

    Matt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (KJV) (Heaven and earth are still here!)

    Matt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (KJV)


    Matt 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. (KJV)

    Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. (KJV)

    Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the
    law, but under grace. (KJV)

    What these scriptures are saying is that we were delivered from the law by the body of Christ and now His laws are in our heart and our mind and we are free from the Law because we are no longer our own keeper but kept by the Power of God and the reason we are free is because we no longer do the things contained in the Law of the Commandments for we are the servants of righteousness and not the servants of sin and death, which is to transgress the Law of the Commandments as explained in the following scriptures:

    Romans 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. (KJV)

    Romans 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. (KJV)

    Romans 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. (KJV)

    Romans 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. (KJV)

    Romans 7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. (KJV)

    I have been asked who was the law given to by some? I suppose because it was given to Moses, they are saying it is only to the church. The law was given to a backsliding Israel who were worshiping idol gods. The Law of the Commandments were given to all of Isreal, (when all of Israel was not Israel), because of sin and when the middle wall of partition was broken down salvation went out to all men not just Israel. All of Israel were not the church, only those who kept all of His Commandments, statues, ordinances and were found perfect before God. It is hard for me to believe that our preachers would preach such a doctrine when them that drink milk have a better understanding than that. As stated in the following scriptures:

    Romans 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: (KJV)

    Romans 9:27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: (KJV)
    (That remnant was the church, not all of Israel!)

    I would that everyone would think of their own life before they become a Christian. When you were in trouble because of your sins did you quit stealing, lying, coveting, worshiping other things other than God and the rest of the Commandments? If you did not quit the things of the world, which is to break the Commandments, I doubt if you ever have been saved. Let me make it as clear as I can. I do not believe that keeping the Law of the Commandments will give you eternal life, for if it would, there would have been no need for our Lord to come and die, but it will cleanse your hands when you can quit sinning but it stills take the Blood of Christ to take away all of the sins you have already committed and to wash you as white as snow, raise you from the Law of Sin and Death, which is transgression of the Law of the Ten Commandments, unto the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus. Amen

    Now the following scripture which talks about the Law being a shadow of thing to come is talking about the sacrificial law (which is often confused with the Law of the Commandments) when they offered up the blood of animals it was a shadow of the coming of Christ, but was not the real thing. It only stayed their sins from year to year, but when Jesus came and died he fulfilled that Law and put away sin forever.


    Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. (KJV)

    Heb 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. (KJV)

    Heb 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. (KJV)

    Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. (KJV)

    Heb 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: (KJV)

    Heb 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. (KJV)

    Also the Law of circumcision is often confused with the Law of the Commandments. We should read very carefully and pray for an understanding to make sure what Law the scripture is talking about. The law of circumcision was taken out of the flesh and put in the heart and the scriptures say circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Explained in the following scriptures:


    Romans 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. (KJV)

    Romans 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? (KJV)

    Romans 2:27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? (KJV)

    Romans 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: (KJV)

    Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (KJV)

    Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. (KJV)

    Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. (KJV) ( The Law will not justify you, but it will condemn you in sin! And if you keep the Law of Commandments it will lead you to Christ by cleansing your hands from sin, if you believe that Jesus is the Christ.)


    Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; (KJV)

    Romans 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. (KJV)

    Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. (KJV) (again the Law does not save you but condemns you in sin!)

    Romans 3:29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: (KJV)

    Romans 3:30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. (KJV)

    Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. (KJV)


    Now to say you cannot preach the Law of the Commandments to the world is to say you can not preach what Jesus preached himself and He said that the Holy Spirit would bring to our remembrance all things He had done and taught. In the following scriptures Jesus tells a young ruler of the world what he must do to inherit eternal life and the first thing Jesus told him was to keep the Commandments. Some say He only quoted five of them, but I believe He meant and probably said all of them, for the scripture says to offend in one point or break one of the Commandments you are guilty of all and the ones that are not written have to do with (Thou shalt have no other gods before me, Not to make any graven image, not to take the Lord=s name in vain, keep the Sabbath and to not Covet) I am sure he meant these other five Commandments.

    Matt 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? (KJV)

    Matt 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. (KJV)

    Matt 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, (KJV)


    Matt 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (KJV)

    Matt 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? (KJV)

    Matt 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. (KJV)

    Matt 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. (KJV)

    In closing, I will attach several scriptures to this writing and will say that if the Commandments are not to the world, then the world has never sinned, therefore they would not have anything to repent of, which anyone should be able to understand better than that, to say the world has not sinned is to say God hath told false because He said the world and all have sinned, which is transgression of the Law of The Commandments. Also to say that the world can not quit sinning is to say that man does not have a choice whether to serve God or Baal and that he cannot cleanse his hands. Remember how it was with you, did you quit breaking the Commandments? Did you know it was wrong to commit adultery when you were in the world? Could you quit lying or did you have to lie when you were in the world? Was the choice yours or did God make you quit breaking the Commandments? Finally, when you broke the Law of the Commandments when you were in the world did you know it was sin and who do you think taught you that? The Law is a schoolmaster that will get you to the foot of the cross, it stills takes the blood of Jesus to save you.
    In the Judgement, the men and women of the world that have lied, committed adultery, stole, killed and broken any of the Law of Commandments, will be judged by them, according to the scriptures. (For they were judged out of the things written in the books, not just the words repent, for Jesus said the words I speak shall judge you in the last day.
    Also your works will follow you into judgement). Amen

    There are several Laws mentioned in the scriptures. We have discussed in this writing The Law of Commandments, The Law of Sacrifice and the Law of Circumcision. The Law of Commandments is the one that is sin for mankind by transgression of that Law bringeth forth sin and sin bringeth forth death. Amen

    Matt 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. (KJV)

    Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. (KJV)


    Matt 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? (KJV)

    Matt 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. (KJV)

    Matt 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, (KJV)

    Matt 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (KJV)

    Matt 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? (KJV)

    Matt 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. (KJV)

    Matt 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. (KJV)


    Romans 7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. (KJV)

    Romans 7:10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. (KJV)

    Romans 7:11 for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. (KJV)

    Romans 7:13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. (KJV)

    Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. (KJV)

    Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (KJV)

    Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (KJV)


    Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: (KJV)

    Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (KJV)

    Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. (KJV)

    Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (KJV)

    Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. (KJV)

    Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (KJV)

    Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (KJV)

    Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (KJV)

    Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (KJV)

    Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. (KJV)

    Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (KJV)

    Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (KJV)

    1 Tim 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; (KJV)

    Romans 3:19 heaven, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. (KJV)

    Romans 3:14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: (KJV)

    Romans 3:15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. (KJV)

    Romans 3:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (KJV)

    Romans 7:2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. (KJV)

    Romans 7:3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. (KJV)

    1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. (KJV)

    1 John 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. (KJV)

    1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. (KJV)

    1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (KJV)

    1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. (KJV)

    1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. (KJV)

    1 John 3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. (KJV)

    1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. (KJV)

    1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. (KJV)

    1 John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. (KJV)

    1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (KJV)


    1 John 3:17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? (KJV)

    1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. (KJV)

    1 John 3:19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. (KJV)

    1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. (KJV)

    1 John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. (KJV)

    1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. (KJV)

    1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. (KJV)


    Romans 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through
    the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and
    the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath
    abounded unto many. (KJV)

    Romans 5:16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the
    judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many
    offences unto justification. (KJV)

    Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they
    which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness
    shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
    (KJV)

    Romans 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to
    condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift
    came upon all men unto justification of life.
    (KJV)

    Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the

    obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
    (KJV)

    Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where
    sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
    (KJV)

    Romans 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign
    through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may
    abound? (KJV)

    Romans 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer
    therein? (KJV)

    Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ
    were baptized into his death? (KJV)

    Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like
    as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father,
    even so we also should walk in newness of life.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death,
    we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body
    of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live
    with him: (KJV)

    Romans 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death

    hath no more dominion over him. (KJV)

    Romans 6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth,
    he liveth unto God. (KJV)

    Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but
    alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should
    obey it in the lusts thereof. (KJV)

    Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness
    unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive
    from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness
    unto God. (KJV)

    Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the
    law, but under grace. (KJV)

    Romans 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but
    under grace? God forbid. (KJV)

    Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey,
    his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or
    of obedience unto righteousness? (KJV)

    Romans 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have
    obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered
    you. (KJV)

    Romans 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of
    righteousness. (KJV)

    Romans 6:19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your
    flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness
    and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members
    servants to righteousness unto holiness.
    (KJV)


    Romans 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from
    righteousness. (KJV)

    Romans 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed?
    for the end of those things is death.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye
    have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    (KJV)

    Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
    through Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV)

    Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very
    image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they
    offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
    (KJV)

    Heb 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the
    worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
    (KJV)

    Heb 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins
    every year. (KJV)

    Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should
    take away sins. (KJV)

    Heb 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and
    offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
    (KJV)

    Heb 10:6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
    (KJV)

    Heb 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of
    me,) to do thy will, O God. (KJV)

    Heb 10:8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and

    offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein;
    which are offered by the law; (KJV)

    Heb 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the
    first, that he may establish the second.
    (KJV)

    Heb 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body
    of Jesus Christ once for all. (KJV)


    Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. (KJV)

    Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; (KJV)

    Romans 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: (KJV)

    Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (KJV)

    Agreed. The Ten commandments (and in fact the Word of God in general) "Defines sin" by telling us what God's way is - so that we can see clearly "as in a mirror" when we choose the way of evil and sin "instead".

    The "New Creation" is made in harmony with that Law - but the sinful nature is in rebellion against it.

    So we see the struggle that Paul speaks of in Romans 7.

    Thank you,
    Glad to have someone read my writings after all these years. I was chosen by 27 churches to write a circular letter to the Association one year, maybe also later I can post it. It is about the the different types of death and the inner man and the outward man.
