Christian Hypocrites (?)

Skeptics might accuse Christians of being hypocrites because we do not follow Old Testament laws. In answer to that accusation, please know the Bible is clear that those laws were written specifically for Abraham’s descendants. In fact, the New Testament says Christians are free from the Old Testament laws.

Many Christians find wisdom in the Ten Commandments and try to keep them. One such command is to observe the Sabbath. To Abraham’s descendants, observing the Sabbath meant resting on a specified day to remember the Lord set them free from slavery to Egypt. They did not free themselves. God did it. However, Christians observe the Sabbath to remember the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead. We did not save ourselves. God did it.

I hope that explains some things. If you have not trusted Jesus as your Savior, please consider saying this prayer now:

“Lord, thank You that You died for my sins so I do not have to do any other work other than believing and trusting that You paid for my sins with Your blood. I believe that You rose from the dead and will put Your Spirit in me to guide me to holy decisions. Thank You that I will be live eternally with You in heaven because You saved me. In Christ’s Name, Amen.”
