An “Old Testament” passage that reveals “grace” doesn’t negate our need to follow God’s Divine Instructions

King David reveals that "grace" doesn't suggest we are free to live in sin. Take a look at the many ways in just this passage that he expresses our need to be holy! (And how do we know what constitutes holiness? TORAH!)

Psalm 101: 1 A psalm of David: I am singing of grace and justice; I am singing to you, ADONAI. 2 I will follow the path of integrity; when will you come to me? I will run my life with a sincere heart inside my own house. 3 I will not allow before my eyes any shameful thing. I hate those who act crookedly; what they do does not attract me.

4 Deviousness will depart from me; I will not tolerate evil. 5 If someone slanders another in secret, I will cut him off. Haughty eyes and proud hearts I cannot abide. 6 I look to the faithful of the land, so that they can be my companions; those who live lives of integrity can be servants of mine. 7 No deceitful person can live in my house; no liar can be my advisor. 8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, cutting off all evildoers from the city of ADONAI. (CJB)

  1. Also, if torah is abolished, including the Ten Commandments, according to the Christians, why are they cherry picking the sins in the law they say is abolished? According to their logic, we can: commit adultry, have false gods, kill someone, not honor their mother and father, covet, and not keep kosher.
