Sin Becomes Trivial

If we remove the Ten Commandments out of the Gospel presentation, out goes much of sound doctrine with it. Take for example the great biblical truths that God will judge the heathen, or that Jesus is the only way to God. When the Law is removed, sin becomes trivial. This is because it is seen from man's viewpoint, rather than God's. It is the Moral Law that shows us Heaven's perspective. Without that perspective, sin loses its serious nature. Consequently, forgiveness becomes attainable through man's efforts. Heaven, without a revelation of God's perfect righteousness, comes within man's grasp. But when the Law is used to show us God's perfect standard, the only way we could even hope to find peace with Him is if God Himself provided the way. And we know He did that through the cross. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
