Sunday, the preacher brought a sermon from 2 Cor. 3. Consider verses 7-11: 7 But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, 8 how will the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory. 10 For indeed what had glory, in this case has no glory because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if that which fades away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. Paul here equates the "letters engraved in stone" to: ministry of death ministry of condemnation that which fades away If this is how Paul views the 10 commandments (the only letters engraved in stone), to the ministry of death and condemnation, what business to "christians" have trying to lift them up? This is all taken directly from Paul folks.
