Has God Relaxed the Moral Code of Old Testament Law?

Has the Death Penalty for Murder, Homosexuality, Adultery… Been Rescinded in the New?

Has God Changed His Mind Because of “Grace”?

The Moral Code of the Law given to Moses, i.e. the Ten Commandments and Death Penalty Statutes were not rescinded by Jesus. On the contrary, He actually “beefed them up” as He stated that sins such as murder and adultery can be committed in the heart even if not acted upon (Matthew 5:21-28).

The Law demanded the death penalty for certain transgressions including adultery, homosexuality, and certain cases of incest (Exodus 22, Leviticus 18 & 20). Again and again the verdict is given, “They shall surely die.”

In fact, under “GRACE” God does not put to death, in the sense of criminal justice, anyone for these sins. Even so, neither has He rescinded the death penalty for these wicked sins!

They blatantly ignored the will of the majority of people (61%), and overturned it. Then they rejected a request to delay the effective date of their ruling and not allow such marriages until after the elections in November, when voters could vote on a constitutional amendment to ban same sex-marriages.

In spite of the will of the people, same sex-marriages began in June 2008. Four unelected judges on California’s highest court forced their will on the entire state! Continue reading “Same Sex Marriages” Legalized in Several States
