t wenty welve ways twelve ten commandment lessons presented in 2012 by the voice in the wilderness and crossvue school of missions lesson 5 the conviction in stone and the compassion of christ the moment has arrived some might think finally a palatable treatment of the ten commandments it s high time in the name of love and unity a spirit of tolerance prevails this old fashion pulpit thumping legalism died with the puritans we must not offend anyone we have outgrown that kind of pettiness this is the age of tolerance well first of all that s not bible second this tolerant crowd is the most intolerant bunch ever thirdly some would sandblast from every memory any recollection of the ten commandments the permanency of god s law is demonstrated when he himself wrote with his finger the ten commandments in tables of stone these tables of stone described in exodus 31:18 are foundational to the legal system in which god has declared himself to man his law in its fullness is the reflection of the holy character of god no prophet was given the call to inscribe in stone these ten commandments thus god stresses their importance emphasized by his own finger writing this decalogue in stone christ is the chief cornerstone as the apostle recognized the very foundation stone of the church i peter 2:6 peter understood the messianic prophecy fulfilled in christ for the child of faith this truth is indeed the bedrock upon which we stand i peter 2:7 8 states unto you therefore which believe he is precious but unto them which be disobedient the stone which the builders disallowed the same is made the head of the corner and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense even to them which stumble at the word being disobedient whereunto also they are appointed note in verse seven that for the believer the stone is precious but the apostle describes those who are disobedient as stumbling over the stone in verse eight also he uses this interesting phrase in verse eight even to them which stumble at the word being disobedient of course we know christ is the word and he is the chief cornerstone christ is also the fulfillment of the law for those disobedient to his commands there is automatically stumbling and offense psalm 119:165 says great peace have they which love thy law and nothing shall offend them it does appear that far too many in the church stumble around in their christian walk with a spiritual chip on their shoulder constantly offended about 4·the voice in the wilderness june 2012 virtual edition

something do we love his law if so nothing shall offend us jesus told us if we love him we are to keep his commandments there are various opinions as to how the tables of stone divided the ten commands some have insisted that four were inscribed on the first table and six on the second then others contend that the commands were equally divided on each table in our study we will give scriptural evidence for the equal division of the law between the two tables of stone thou shalt have no other gods before me god is the one and true living god he is not one among many gods worship love and obedience belong to him and him alone in this age of so-called political correctness and ecumenical new age tolerance the attempt is to afflict guilt upon those who believe and embrace the first commandment big name tv and radio preachers seem to get a case of the studders when interviewed as to whether muslims catholics jews etc will go to heaven if they don t believe the bible of course it s understandable the sensitivity that most of us have we all want approval and affirmation there are few of us who enjoy jumping in front of the bullet yet that is why god began his commands by making it clear that there is only one true and living god there is only one saviour there is only one way to heaven if we give devotion to a god of stone or wood self or money anyone or anything other than god himself it is a violation of this first command thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image jesus himself said god is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth there is no image likeness or icon permitted in the worship of god he forbids the use of such in his worship deuteronomy 4:12 says and the lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire ye heard the voice of the words but saw no similitude only ye heard a voice even in the holy mountain moses and the people saw no form or image of god as he spoke to them for ye saw no manner of similitude lest ye corrupt yourselves and make you an graven image the similitude of any figure the likeness of male or female the likeness of any beast that is on the earth the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air the likeness of anything that creepeth on the ground the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth and thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven and when thou seest the sun and the moon and the stars even all the host of heaven shouldest be driven to worship them and serve them which the lord thy god hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven deuteronomy 4:15-19 how much clearer can you get thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image for more resources visit ·5
