The truths of His word, God revealed to people. For all those who receive them, are a shield against Satan's fraud. Ignoring these truths, which is now in the religious world so widespread, it opens the door to all evil. People largely lost sight of the essence and importance of God's law. Incorrect understanding of the nature and severity of permanent validity of God's law leads to erroneous views of conversion and sanctification and causes the decline of piety in the churches. Here, look for the secret, why oživeneckých movements of our time meet the Spirit of God and his power.

In various churches, people are known for their piety, who know and worried over the status quo. Professor Edwards A. Park lists the dangers that now threaten the Church, and aptly writes: "One source of danger is that from the pulpit does not emphasize the law of God. In the old days used to echo the voice of conscience, the pulpit ... Our greatest preachers gave their preaching a unique grandeur that modeled the Master vyzvedali law of God, his commandments and his warnings. repeated the two great principles, namely that the law is a manifestation of God's perfection and man who loves the law, does not love the gospel, because the law - as well as gospel - it is a mirror that reflects God's character. This leads to another danger, that is to underestimate the seriousness of sin, its spread and lethality. The importance of disobedience law is directly proportional to the importance of law ...

With the aforementioned hazards associated with the risk of underestimating the justice of God. Currently, preachers tend to separate justice from God's goodness, do not dramatize God's goodness as a principle, but reduce it to mere sentiment. These new theological opinions divide what God has joined together. God's law is good or bad? It's good. Then justice is good, because they are trying to fulfill the law. Out of habit underestimate God's law and justice, from the range and lethality of human disobedience is one easy habit to undervalue the grace of God that brings forgiveness of sin. "The Gospel in the minds of people losing value and significance, and these people are actually willing to give soon the Bible aside.

Many religious teachers claim that Christ by his death abolished the law and that since people may not meet the requirements of the Act. Others consider the law a heavy burden, and as opposed to binding law emphasize the freedom of the gospel.

Prophets and apostles, however, assessed the holy law of God differently. David said: "Freely I walk to the provisions of your queries." (Psalm 119.45) The Apostle James, who wrote after the death of Christ, called the Ten Commandments "the royal law" and "perfect law of liberty" (James 2.8, 1.25). And John, more than half a century after the crucifixion, pronounced a blessing to those "who act according to his commandments, and have access to the tree of life and the gates of the city" (Revelation 22.14).

The claim that Christ by his death abolished His Father's law, lacks any foundation. If it were possible to change or abolish the law, then Christ did not die to save mankind from the punishment for sin. Christ's death nearly disturb the law, proves the contrary, that the law is immutable. The Son of God came to "exalted and magnified the law" (Isaiah 42.21). He said: "Think not that I have come to abolish the law ... till heaven and earth pass away one jot or one tittle of the law." (Matthew 5,17.18) itself, the Lord Jesus said: "To fulfill my God, your will is my desire, Your law is within my heart." (Psalm 40.8)

God's law is essentially immutable. It is revelation of the will and character of the legislature. God is love and His law is love. Two major principles of the law are to love God and love of man. "Love is the fulfilling of the law." (Romans 13:10) God's character is justice and truth, it is also the essence of God's law. The Psalmist wrote, "Your law is truth ... All your commandments are righteousness." (Psalm 119 142 172) And the apostle Paul said: "The law is holy and the commandment holy, just and good." (Romans 7:12) The law, which is an expression of God's mind and will of God must be just as permanent as a legislator.

Conversion and sanctification reconciles people with God that leads them to comply with the principles of God's law. At the beginning lived a man created in God's image in perfect harmony with God's character and the law. The principles of justice were inscribed in his heart. Sin, however, a man estranged from the Creator. Then you did not carry the image of God. "Bodily thinking (focus on self) is hostile to God because they want to or can not obey God's law." (Romans 8.7) Indeed, "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son," that one can reconcile with God. Thanks to Jesus Christ, we can again be brought into line with their Creator. The human heart must turn the grace of God, one must adopt a new life from God. This change is a rebirth, without which - as Jesus said - no one "can not see the kingdom of God."

The first step toward reconciliation with God is the conviction of his own sinfulness. "Sin is a violation of law." "The law comes knowledge of sin." (1 John 3.4; Romans 3:20) If the sinner learn his guilt, must judge his character by God's standards of justice. The law is a mirror that shows the perfection of God's righteous character and enables people to identify their shortcomings.

The law shows man his sins does not provide any solution. It promises a life obedient, but shows that the fate of transgressors is death. Only the gospel of Christ can liberate a person from punishment for sin or pollution of sin. They must show repentance before God, whose law transgressed, and believe in Christ and his vicarious sacrifice. By his sins will be forgiven, "becomes the divine nature" (2 Peter 1.4). It becomes a child of God, because it took the spirit of sonship, the power of crying, "Abba, Father!" (Romans 8:15)

You can change trains God's law? The apostle Paul wrote: "So this void the law through faith? Absolutely not. On the contrary, confirm law." "We did Sin died - in how we can continue to live there?" And the apostle John says: "There is the love of God that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not burdensome." (Romans 3.31, 6.2, 1 John 5:3) The rebirth of the human heart align with God, because it aligns with God's law. When the sinner in this place, radical changes, passed from death to life, from sin to holiness, of disobedience and rebellion to obedience and loyalty. The old life of alienation from God ended, he began a new life of reconciliation, faith and love. Then "justice required by law" will be "fulfilled in us who do not manage its own will but the will of the Spirit" (Romans 8:4). A human heart expresses: "How I love Your law. Every day I think about it." (Psalm 119.97)

"Law of the LORD is perfect, life-sustaining." (Psalm 19:8) Without the law, one can not correctly understand God's purity and holiness, or their own guilt and uncleanness. Not convinced of sin and no need that he should repent. They do not see it as transgress God's law is lost, and not realizing that he needs the atoning blood of Jesus Christ. It receives no hope of rescue profound change of heart and amendment of life. That is why so many superficially inverted, so the church come so many people who did not come to Christ.

In contemporary religious movements also prevalent misconceptions on the dedication, which are based on ignoring or rejecting God's law. These theories are false beliefs and dangerous practical consequences. Because it enjoys such wide popularity, it is doubly necessary that everyone know exactly what Scripture teaches about it.

The doctrine of sanctification is the true biblical. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians in the worksheet: "This is the will of God, your sanctification." And he prayed: "God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; let." (1 Thessalonians 4.3, 5:23) The Bible clearly teaches what sanctification is and how it can achieve. Savior prayed for his disciples: "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." (John 17:17) The apostle Paul teaches that believers should be "sanctified by the Holy Spirit" (Romans 15:16). What has the Holy Spirit? Jesus told his disciples: "When He is come, the Spirit of truth will guide you into all truth." (John 16:13) The Psalmist wrote: "Your law is truth." God's word and God's Spirit people familiar with the great principles of justice expressed in God's law. Because God's law is "holy, righteous and good" because it is a manifestation of God's perfection, it follows that the character formed by obedience to this Act shall be holy. A perfect example of such is the nature of Jesus Christ, who said: "I have kept my Father's commands." "We still do what pleases him." (John 15.10; 8:29) The followers of Jesus, he should resemble - the grace of God to shape his character consistently with the principles of God's holy law. This is the biblical sanctification.

Sanctification is realized only by faith in Jesus Christ, the power of God's Spirit works in man. The apostle Paul admonishes believers: "With fear and trembling give a deed in his salvation. For it is God who works in you, that you want and you do what he likes." (Philippians 2,12.13) Christian experiences temptations to sin, but constantly fighting it. This needs Christ's help. Human weakness is connected to the power of God and faith exclaims: "Praise be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!" (1 Corinthians 15.57)
