Literature Introduction: The Ten Commandments


The Restored Church of God presents, author
David C. Pack. It is recognized that the earth and the universe reflect perfect order. This is due to perfect interaction, balance
and harmony with natural laws. Likewise, there exist spiritual laws, which,
if obeyed, would ensure peace, harmony and fulfillment among men and nations. They would bring order to civilization so
completely lacking today. But the masses have not understood these laws! Almost all of the ministers, theologians and
professors of divinity within recognized Christendom insist that the core of God’s spiritual
Law—the Ten Commandments!—were done away in Jesus Christ. Repeating what they have been taught without
requiring proof, they call it the “law of Moses” and claim that it was kept for them
by Jesus, abolished by His sacrifice—and “nailed to the cross.” They do not grasp even the most basic differences
between the Levitical sacrificial rituals, the law of Moses and the Law of God. Tragically, most preachers reject Christ’s
impossible to misunderstand words from the very Sermon on the Mount, when He said, “Think
not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but
to fulfill.” He added for emphasis, “For truly I say
to you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the
law.” Instead, such ministers speak endlessly of
“God’s love,” while being sure not to reference either what the apostle Paul recorded—that
“Love is the fulfilling of the law”—or what the apostle John wrote—”For this
is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.” Rather, churchgoers are told that the Laws
of God ARE grievous, difficult, harsh—and not possible to keep! It is these same so-called religious authorities
dismissing the Ten Commandments as “only for the Jews in the Old Testament” that
has caused most to believe these laws neither existed prior to Moses, nor remained in effect
after Christ’s crucifixion. This thinking could not be more false—and
wrong! For 6,000 years, God has permitted humanity
to exercise free moral agency—to make his own decisions and reap the consequences. After having violated His spiritual laws throughout
the course of human history, man will soon be forced to realize and appreciate that God’s
ways infinitely exceed his own. Six millennia of human agony stand in stark
testimony to man’s track record of living contrary to the marvelous laws of God, which
were set in motion for his own good. Like the physical laws governing the universe,
making all things run smoothly, the Ten Commandments are laws that govern the Christian’s life—are
commands that produce the true peace, real happiness, unbounded prosperity—and ultimate
success!—that all seek. They are the gift of a loving God to the pinnacle
of His creation—human beings. This book, The Ten Commandments –“Nailed
to the Cross” or Required for Salvation?, presents unequivocal, absolute proof that
these towering, immutable laws are still binding on all peoples today. To access the literature offered in this video, or to order a free hardcopy, visit us online. And be sure to explore our extensive literature
