Thousands have asked if the New Covenant does away with God's Commandments. Here's the TRUTH on this question. It is commonly assumed that the old covenant was the ten commandment law - that the new covenant contains only grace and promises, but no law. Hence it is argued that since the old covenant has been abolished God's law has also been abolished. This teaching would lead you to believe that the law of God was harsh, cruel, and enslaving - that the FAULT of the old covenant was with the law, and since God gave the law, the FAULT must have been His! Later, according to this common teaching, Jesus came with a new covenant which had no law, only promises and liberty to do what your conscience dictates. Is this what the Bible teaches?
