The New Covenant In Christ Jesus

Christ does not place a multitude of laws, rules and regulations upon your shoulders. All he asks is that you, "Walk in Love". You are required to seek to gain more understanding of LOVE - the divine love. You have been spiritually "quickened" and "activated" to be guided by LOVE. There is NO LAW but the "Law of Love".
As a responsible child of God, you are duty-bound to understand how this LOVE plays out in everything you do. You are required to spend quality time in personal/private prayers and in meditation, in study of great books that God will bring your way and in fellowship with fellow believers. Devote your heart to fully understand the teachings of Jesus.
- In Christ, there's NO LAW that says you must pay TITHES. In Moses, there's such a law. Christ says GIVE CHEERFULLY. Jesus NEVER taught tithes as "a must requirement". His Apostles NEVER did as well.
- In Christ, there's NO LAW that says a witch must be KILLED. In Moses, there's such a law. Christ says PRAY for your ENEMIES.
- In Christ, there's NO LAW that says "an eye for an eye". In Moses, there's such a law. Christ says "FORGIVE".
In Christ, we are under the "Law of the Spirit of Life", the "Perfect Law of Liberty", the "Law of Love". Understand these things, and you will not live in fear and bondage! Amen! 

The Perfect Law of Liberty:
James 1:25, "But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed."

The Law of the Spirit of Life: 
Romans 8:2, "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

There is no Law against Love:
Galatians 5:22-23, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, fidelity, meekness, self-control: against such things there is no law."

May God Almighty, our "Father", the all merciful and all gracious bless you abundantly! Amen.

Call No One "Father" - In The Spiritual Sense

Call no one "father", in the spiritual sense. Your spiritual Father is the Father in Heaven - the Heaven of Heavens, Paradise.

It is very dangerous to call a fellow human being your "father in the Lord", "Papa", "Mama", "spiritual father", etc. When you do so, you may end up worshipping them and you may not be very conscious of this happening. A "personality cult" may develop around the person. Many people may start bowing down to and worshipping him or her - unconsciously. As a human being, you have a "WORSHIP CIRCUIT" built into you. You are "fearfully and wonderfully made" - you are intricate, delicate, superbly special and wonderful. There's a worship circuitry that connects you to the Paradise Father - directly!

If you are not careful, you may find yourself channelling that built-in worship circuitry to that man or woman you call your spiritual father/mother, Papa/Mama. That individual may end up taking the place of God in your life. That's a curse! That's very, very dangerous! Your eternity may be at stake! Your life on Earth may become messed up! This is no joke at all, beloved...

We are all brothers and sisters - children of God. Some of us are lost like the Prodigal Son. Some of us are saved - salvaged sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father. You should love and honor those who teach you TRUTH but you must not worship them. Don't call them "father" or "mother". They are your brothers and sisters. Yes, they may be more spiritually matured. But this doesn't make them better than you in the sight of God. Learn to love everyone, including your enemies. Fear no one. Bow down to no one. God bless and keep you! Amen.

"And call not [any one] your father upon the earth; for one is your Father, he who is in the heavens." - Jesus, Matthew 23:9 Darby Bible Translation

“While you should honor your rulers and reverence your teachers, you should call no man Father in the spiritual sense, for there is one who is your Father, even God. Neither should you seek to lord it over your brethren in the kingdom. Remember, I have taught you that he who would be greatest among you should become the server of all. If you presume to exalt yourselves before God, you will certainly be humbled; but whoso truly humbles himself will surely be exalted. Seek in your daily lives, not self-glorification, but the glory of God. Intelligently subordinate your own wills to the will of the Father in heaven." - Jesus, The Urantia Book 175:1.10
