    ELDER GRANT’S FIFTH SPEECH

    It seems we have come around together on Romans 7, I do not deny that the law was alive, and that it slew Paul. If the Sabbath is binding, no one can be a Christian without keeping it. How is it that I receive such great blessings from God, if it is sin to break the Sabbath?DSQ63 28.5

    My friend has quoted several authors, but I would ask him whether any one of them believed in keeping the Sabbath?DSQ63 28.6

    I do not claim that the ten commands were abolished, and then nine of them re-enacted. “Thou shalt not kill” never was abolished. The nine commands were brought over into the new covenant without change, but the fourth command was left out. The Sabbath is not commanded in the new covenant.DSQ63 28.7

    There was nothing in the old covenant to forbid a man’s being at variance with his neighbor. The Sabbath was classed with feast days in Leviticus 23. They had feasts and holy convocations, and the first one was the seventh day Sabbath. Those feasts were all abolished together.DSQ63 29.1

    I will now proceed to show from the Scriptures that no man can be justified by the law. Galatians 5:4. “Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.” Galatians 2:16-19. “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves, also, are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.” Galatians 3:19, 24, 25. “Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.”DSQ63 29.2

    This law was not added in Abraham’s time. There is no evidence that Abraham kept the law. It was lour hundred and thirty years after the promise to Abraham.DSQ63 29.3
