Title: The Law Written on Our Hearts is not the Ten Commandments

Notes:

"This is the covenant I will make with them after that time," says the Lord. "I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds." (Hebrews 10:16)

"This is obviously a reference to the law of Moses," says the law-preacher. "The Ten Commandments were written in stone, now they're written in the hearts and minds of God's people."

Not true. Here are seventeen reasons why God has not written the Ten Commandments on your heart:

  1. The law inflames sin (Romans 5:20) and the strength of sin is the law (1 Corinthians 15:56). Why would God want to stir up sin in your life?
  2. The law condemns (2 Corinthians 3:9), yet there is no condemnation to those in Christ.
  3. The law minister's death (2 Corinthians 3:7), but God wants you to enjoy abundant life.
  4. Law and grace don't mix. You are under grace, not law (Romans 6:14).
  5. Living by the law will alienate you from Christ (Galatians 5:4).
  6. Living by the law is cheating on Jesus (Romans 7). Why would God do anything to encourage spiritual adultery?
  7. We're to live by faith but the law is not of faith (Galatians 3:12). The law encourages us to depend on ourselves instead of Jesus.
  8. Those who live under the law are under a curse (Galatians 3:10). Why would God curse those he has blessed?
  9. The law binds and enslaves (Romans 7:6), but Jesus wants you free.
  10. The law keeps you immature for it makes nothing perfect or complete (Hebrews 7:19).
  11. We have died to the law so that we may serve in the new way of the Spirit and "not in the old way of the written code" (Romans 7:6).
  12. When there has been a change of priesthood, the law must be changed also (Hebrews 7:12). For God to write the old law on our hearts would be like saying Aaron is greater than Jesus.
  13. God found fault with the law-keeping covenant and made it obsolete (Hebrews 8:7, 13). Why would God insult his Son's sacrifice by giving you the very thing his sacrifice rendered obsolete?
  14. The law is a shadow of the good things to come and not the reality (Hebrews 10:1). Why would God give you the shadow instead of "the good thing?"
  15. The Jews considered the law to be ordained by angels (Hebrews 2:2). If so, says the author of Hebrews, then it is inferior to the gospel of Jesus (Hebrews 1:4). Why would God give you an inferior gift?
  16. Some Christians think that God gives them the law as a guide to live by, but why would God want you to repeat the mistake of the Galatians (Galatians 3:2)? Why would God do anything to make you fall from grace?
  17. The old law-keeping covenant required an accounting or remembering of sin, but the new covenant is characterized by God forgiving and forgetting on account of Jesus (Hebrews 10:17). If the law that God writes on our hearts is the law of Moses, then Jesus died for nothing.

If God has written the Ten Commandments on your heart and mind, you should be able to list all ten with no trouble. Can you? What's the seventh commandment? You can't do it because it's not there, and a very good thing that is too! If the law that God writes on our hearts is the law of Moses, you're in big trouble.
