THE LAW / NOMOPBIHOA
Nomophobia is a fear or disdain for laws.
Nomophobia, or fear of the law is what the enemy has cultivated in Christians through the writings of one man (Apostle Sha’ul).
This is despite the fact that Kefa warned us in 2 Peter 3:15-17 that Sha’ul’s writings are hard to understand. Then he stated that these writings are are specially dangerous to the unlearned and the unstable because a misunderstanding will take hem to their destruction. Here is the warning:
2Pe 3:15-17 And count the patience of Master as salvation, just as our beloved brother Sha’ul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.
You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.
Take care YOU are not carried away with these errors and lose your stability! Here are some articles here on Just a Word that seek to explain what Apostle Sha’ul meant in his writings. Go to What does Paul Mean?
This misunderstanding has left us with almost all of Christendom disobeying his laws in some shape or fashion. Whether it is living in wanton sin, or disobeying the sabbath or disobeying the feasts and more, Christians have a disdain for the laws of the Most High.
Is this what the bible says we should do? Is the law done away with? We have already shown Sha’ul confessing his faith as believing all that is written in the law and the prophets, so this cannot be what he is saying:
Acts 24:14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the Elohim of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
Law Shows Us What Sin Is
The first problem we have when we dismiss the law, is that we remove the very source that shows us what sin is:
Rom 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? YAHUAH forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
So we need the law to show us exactly what sin is. Now why do we need the law to show us what sin is?
Breaking the law Is Sin
The bible describes sin as breaking the law:
1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
So if we break the law, we are sinners. We therefore need the law so we do not break them and found to be sinners. So since we need the law to show us what sin is, and sin is breaking the law, and no sinner (unrighteous) shall inherit the kingdom, it therefore means we MUST obey the law! The law shows us what sin is, but it did not have a provision for us to over come the sin that it shows us! In comes Yahusha HaMashiach who came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill the law.
