Bible messages that can't be changed #5

Another message from God that can't be changed, written to the Church in Rome. 

Romans 7:4
4Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God1. (ESV)

The old law, the law of Moses was the schoolmaster2 to bring the Jews to Christ. There are a lot of people that still want to keep some things from the law of Moses. Some people want to keep the instruments of music3. Some people are still tithing4. Tithing was money or goods paid to the Levitical priesthood.  Some people want us to still observe the Sabbath Day. The ten commandments are still held up as something we are commanded from.

We need to decide if we're going to follow the law of Moses or the law of Christ5. The message that Christ has taken away the "ministration of death"6 or the "ministration of condemnation" is a message that can't be changed.
