There are many professed followers of Yahweh that believe they must keep the Torah in order to attain salvation and eternal life.
What the Ranger has noticed is that most of these followers have failed to recognize that they have chosen the wrong Torah! You heard it right amigos. There is more than one Torah out there for you to choose from.
Here’s the part you might wanna pay close attention to: Keeping the right Torah leads to eternal life and attempting to keep the wrong one is only gonna get you an eternal “dirt nap” come Judgment Day.
If you were not aware of such a notion I suggest you mount your hosses and jump on the trail of truth with the Ranger to see if any of this stuff pans out.
Now that you’ve got Part 1 under your belt you might still be wondering if that “free ticket” to salvation is as good as you thought it was. You might want to take the sage advice of the Ranger who says don’t think about throwin’ that ticket in the trash until you get Part 2 under your belt.
Let’s not waste any time gettin’ at the truth of the matter so let’s hop on the trail of truth once again.
In two previous posts, The Law and Problematic Paul, Part 1 and Part 2, the Ranger laid out the details regarding the the Torah of Moses (the Law, Old Covenant) and its relationship to the Abrahamic Covenants of Promise.
Additionally, Paul in the New Testament seems to stress the concept of grace and that we are no longer under “the Law.”
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law (Torah of Moses), but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? The deity forbid. (Romans 6:14-15)
Does grace provide a free ticket to salvation?
If you’re scratching your head thinking about the answer, the Ranger says hop on yer hosses and let’s get goin’ on the the trail of truth.
After digesting Part 1, you might be asking yourself right now, “Isn’t this stuff too complicated to figure out? Why don’t we just play it safe and attempt to keep the Law (Torah of Moses) as best as we can including all of its works. Surely Yahweh knows what is in our hearts and will forgive any ignorance and failings on our part. At some point in the future we will somehow find the truth and adjust our actions accordingly.”
Even if one were to have this attitude it would be wise to note:
For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it. (James 2:10)
After discussing the issue of “the Law” with several elders and teachers of a few Sacred Name assemblies recently, the Ranger has come to the stark conclusion that there seems to be a serious lack of understanding regarding the concept of the Torah of Moses (Old Covenant) and its relationship to the Abrahamic Covenants of Promise.
Without this understanding it is virtually impossible for one to properly discuss the terms “Abrahamic Covenants of Promise,” “The Law,” “Works of the Law,” “Torah of Moses,” “Old Covenant,” and “New Covenant.”
Hey amigos, if any of you at this point have that “deer in the headlight” stare and want to know what I am talking about then I suggest you proceed to hop on the trail of truth to find out.
