ahiah dropped by yesterday and left the following comments in regards to:


“The Doctrine of Richard Rives and why I question them.”


His / Her Comments are.



#1 “You make some interesting points that I hope we could discuss. So if you have the time and the patience please, lets us reason together.”


“I would like to start with a quote from Jesus”


“Matthew 5:18-19 KJV”

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. [19] Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them , the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”



#2 “What did Jesus mean? and why did he say this? Based on what He said, would you agree that the law (Commandments and statutes) given in the old testament are still valid?”


Response to quote #1:


Whom was Jesus talking to in Matthew? Israel or Jewish folk. How do we know this?




Matthew 4:23-25

Matthew 5:1-48 to 7:1-29


Why is this important? Because Jesus as God had a plan.


Please read:


Matt 22:33-40

Mark 12:28-34

Luke 10:25-42


Now why does this matter?


Jesus as God shortened the Law of Moses for Gentiles so that they too can have a greater moral teaching than what existed in their pagan cultures.


Don’t believe me? Well…


Show me in the Gospels that Jesus required to keep the Ten Commandments or the Entirety of the Law of Moses (LOM) for gentiles.


Response to quote #2



For the Law of Moses to be valid it would have to be World Wide. Which  means that Israel / Jews would have to be the governing body over all world Governments. How do I know that?


The Entire LOM is from Exodus 20:1-26 to Leviticus 27:1-34.


This is a entire system of Laws governing Jewish life. It is a Theocratic system.


But not Gentiles.


As you already know ALL Countries have a law system and so the LOM is not valid for our modern life. However I think it can be agreed upon that many aspects of the LOM is part of our law systems.



Now why do I believe that the “LOM” is not presently valid?



Let’s look at what the Disciples wrote.



Acts 15:1-31

Romans 2:11-16

Romans 3:9-31

Romans 13:8-14

Galatians 2:16-21

Galatians 3:10-25

Galatians 5:1-26

Ephesians 2:11-19

1 Timothy 1:3-11

Hebrews 3:1-19

Hebrews 7:15-28

Hebrews 9:11-28

Hebrews 10:1-18

James 2:8-13


So if the Disciples AND Jesus didn’t directly Command to ‘keep the Ten Commandments’. Who said it was ok?

Nobody of any importance.


You see this Theonomist doctrine doesn’t come from God or his Jewish followers it comes from EG White, richard rives and many other false teachers.


So whom do you follow?


Choose Jesus as God and follow his teachings and not flawed men (Or women).
