798. Paul: Beware of Those Desiring to Be Teachers of the Law

Back in the early church, one of the greatest challenges Paul and his company faced was to expose those who would promote a different gospel, which often blended the keeping of the Mosaic law with the message of Jesus. At the beginning of his letter to Timothy, Paul instructed him to confront those who were spreading such strange doctrines, as they desired to be teachers of the law, even though they did not understand what they were talking about. He went on to explain the law was never meant for believers in Christ.

As Paul explained to the churches in Galatia, it was a tutor to bring people to faith. Once faith is in place, people are no longer under the tutor (law). The hypocrisy of modern-day law advocates within the Christian church can be easily exposed—as they are selling a weakened version of God’s original, perfect standard, while ignoring the vast majority of what was given to Israel. Partake of either law or grace, but they were never meant to be mixed. One brought death, the other provides life.
