    ELDER GRANT’S ELEVENTH SPEECH

    My friend accuses me of saying things for effect. Of course we do. That what we talk for. He quotes, “The law was [original illegible] We do not deny that the law was holy. But God has abolished some things that were holy. They are not all binding now, surely.DSQ63 56.3

    I admit, that the penalty for the nine commandments is the second death, and if the Sabbath is brought over it is the same.DSQ63 57.1

    He denies that the Lord’s day is the first day of the week, but if he will carefully read church history he will find that the first day is called Lord’s day.DSQ63 57.2

    He admits that the ceremonial law is done away; hence the Sabbath must be done away; it was that law that regulated the keeping of the Sabbath.DSQ63 57.3

    Paul says he kept back nothing that was profitable, but he did not mention the keeping of the Sabbath. He declared the whole counsel of God, and yet not a word about keeping the seventh day for the Sabbath.DSQ63 57.4

    We will now look at what we have said by way of recapitulation. 1. What we said on Romans 7. “For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress.”DSQ63 57.5

    The same thing is presented just before the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. We read on, “But if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit [original illegible] God.” This we regard as conclusive. We are [original illegible], when the law is dead.DSQ63 57.6
