Lerma, Sunday, August 11, 2013
(John 7:23-24) "23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, Are you angry with me because on the Sabbath a man completely healed? 24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment. " The fear of God is that by subsidiary that hates sin and turns away from it, not the penalties that sinners are punished, but because that is an offense against God, something that is displeasing to Him Moreover , servile fear is avoiding sin with grief you carry.That is, there are three states in which they can please God.1) We do what pleases God by fear of punishment and then we are in the condition of slaves.2) Looking for a wage advantage fulfill orders received in view of our own advantage, so the mercenaries asemejándonos.3) Finally, we do good because it is right and we are well on the condition of children. "Servile applies to the person, to obtain some benefit or favor, humbles himself before another. Therefore, obedience is not a servile attitude but serves voluntary compliance with care and diligence.
In fact, it is a breakthrough against the Jewish approach to the Mosaic law. "The fear of God" is not "the fear of God" and if (Proverbs 9:10) "The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding." Makes it clear that it refers to the power of man to "want" the divine knowledge of good and evil.(Psalms 111:10) "The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever."(Proverbs 1:7) "The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the LORD: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Warnings of Wisdom ".
Historically man has endeavored to raise the ways the principles. What matters is not the objective, but that the ways to achieve it, the premise would be more rooted in our hearts and fallen nature because of sin. The text which heads this sermon speaks of the principles on shapes. The Lord Jesus, the author and finisher of all things, vindicating the principles listed on the forms, which creates an intense burning religions at that time and in this time. In front of the select text of the holy scriptures quoted above, reveals that the religious traditions mattered more than the salvation of an individual.They were religious Jews, those haughty and jealous spirit of the liturgy and ceremonies, but who could not see beyond the forms, and that's why his judgment was only in the shell (appearance) and not the essence of the fruit .(Matthew 23:24-33) "24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel! 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and excess.
26 Blind Pharisee! Cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside also may be clean. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful, but are within full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly indeed, appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 So you testify against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers! 33 serpents, ye generation of vipers! How can you escape the damnation of hell? ".
The apostle Paul defines well the sentiments of those Pharisees who with dedication to keep forms and ritualism (including "extra" Scriptural), thought they were pleasing to God (Philippians 3:4-7) "4 Though I might I have also have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I more: 5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews, as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 Concerning zeal, persecutor of the church as to righteousness under the law, blameless. 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. "

The Pharisees were and are the faction of Judaism more legalistic and formalistic than anyone has ever known. The apostle Paul was one of them, therefore, as they thought and knew that "zeal" defending their religious tenets over the legitimate interests of God. For them the most important thing was the packaging rather than the content. Was more predominant the sacrifices mercy (Hosea 6:6) "For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings."When Jesus Christ came and established the Sound Doctrine of Christ, as the only valid teaching to have the Father and the Son, fell many forms and established the heavenly principle. (Mat 22:37-40) "37 Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. "
The Bible clearly presents a people is taken and set amidst forms of ceremonies and rituals that must be met fully. I mean the people of the Lord God. In the course of its history, this people zealous to fulfill ceremonial inventory that was constantly forgetting the principles below forms, going so far as to become more of a religion, whose symptom is the same for all; present merit before God for his favors. In other words, if I do this or that, as a reward receive this or that.In contrast, the Bible says (Romans 11:33-36) "33 O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?
35 Or who hath first given to him, that he might be repaid? 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever. Amen. "Religions are the prototype of the defenders of the ways the principles. Just remember the content of the law, the principles were in the Decalogue (10 Commandments) and the ways in ceremony and ritual. (Acts 15:1) "And certain men came down from Judaea taught the brethren, you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, ye can not be saved."
No doubt the people boasted of meeting the ceremonies, but constantly forget the principles. They pondered over the rites that the relationship with God and with one another. They worried about the costumes and emblems, but left behind the elementary principles of the law. In this apparent failure, can be seen that not only the people of Israel, but in every human heart takes refuge in a railroad, that attachment only for the liturgy and the neglect of the principles thereof.
Remember a passage very illustrative in this regard: (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) "4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord. 5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all your strength. 6 And these words which I command you today shall be on your heart; 7 and diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit at home and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise. 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes; 9 and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. "When we reviewed the traditions and forms of Judaism over passages like these, we found them under "literal interpretation" adopted the use of the famous "phylacteries or tefillin" they were small leather boxes or envelopes containing small passages of scripture and religious Jews were hung in their hands and on their heads as a sign of fulfillment of the commandment of God Orthodox.Also included, and that even today is practiced by all Jews worldwide, the use of the "mezuzah" is a small box containing a passage of scripture that was installed on the doors of the houses. Thus, fulfilling the second part of the commandment.No doubt that this tradition of Judaism pondered the ways only on the principle of the commandment, which deals with:
With good reason the Lord Jesus told the religious advocates ways: (Matthew 23:4-5) "For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves will not lift a finger to move them. They do all their deeds to be seen by men. For they broaden their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments ".
The Pharisees, as promoters and defenders of the ways on the principles, were experts at putting heavy loads and religious code lists on his parishioners, knowing that they themselves fulfilled them. Demanded, but did not give anything, preached, but not practiced. Hence his religious, colorful and distinguished attire, including their phylacteries, they were just a huge mask of hypocrisy. No wonder the Lord reproached them: (Matthew 24:27) "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. "
CHRIST THE KILLER OF FORMSUnlike the sinful human heart defiantly insists on pleasing God fulfilling rituals and traditions, Jesus shows us in his teaching, that the principles should always be considered by the forms. It is precisely this attitude that therefore repudiate the religious of all ages.Christ healed on the Sabbath (Juan7 :23-24) "If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because on the sabbath day completely to a man? "ate with sinners (Matthew 9:9-13)" 9 Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office, and said unto him, Follow me. And he rose and followed him. 10 And Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down together at the table with Jesus and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? 12 When Jesus heard it, he said, not the healthy who need a physician, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance ", spoke at length with a Samaritan woman (John 4:20-26)" 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where we must worship. 21 Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him in spirit and in truth must worship. 25 He told the woman, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he comes, he will explain everything. 26 Jesus answered, 'I am he, the one speaking to you. ", Chose a publican (Mat.9: 9)" 9 Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office, and said unto him, Follow me. And he rose and followed him "healed a Syrophoenician (Mark 7:24-30)" 24 he left there and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know; but he could not hide. 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, came and fell at his feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician nation, and begged him to cast off his daughter to the devil. 27 But Jesus said: Let us first feed the children, because it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs. 28 And she answered and said unto him, Yea, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs. 29 Then he said, For this saying go, the demon has left your daughter. 30 And when she came home, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed "unless a criminal. (Luke 23:43) "Then Jesus said unto him, Verily I say to you today you will be with me in paradise" and forgave an adulteress (John 8:11) "She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. "
What else can we say of the Son of God who came to raise the principles above all else. He did what he "should not be done" Instead of observing the Sabbath, was to discover the Lord on Saturday that gives true rest, and instead condemn sinners, had to cry "neither do I condemn you" phrase you cleared the hypocrites forces defenders forms above principles.

Christ was the greatest demolition of ways and for that reason, he earned the condemnation of the Pharisees who preferred to keep the traditions and eliminate the foundations of God.To this, the Lord says (Matthew 15:7-9) "hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. "This poignant statement of the Lord, came after the legalistic Pharisees because they were worried of Christ's disciples did not wash their hands when eating bread, breaking the tradition of the elders. Jesus tells them keeping traditions, violated the law by hypocrisy and pretending to please God by works (forms) nullified the fundamental principles and transcendental. This and other passages clearly tell us that the Lord never taught the importance of the ways the principles.
CHRISTIANITY AND FORMSWe know that the ways Christianity has a significance beyond that they should have. The pretext of being "jealous" of the Lord, many are caught in the middle of the fabric of religious formalism, defending traditions, dogmas extracted human and partial views of the Bible, which are defended by phrases such as "always has done it "or" that taught me ", which is not far from the" pioneers "of legalism we treat at the front.There is only one sound doctrine of Christ that discusses what to do when the pandemic formalistic legalism wants to invade our thoughts and churches.
BIBLE THINGS ARE NOT ANTI BIBLE AND BIBLE.This simple trilogy allows us which antidote curb the harmful effects of formal legalism attacking churches. Of the three concepts, the one that should make us sound the "alarm" is the third, ie ANTI things BIBLE.Obviously those who defend forms above principles also will emphasize the second point and to be mentioned first.Certainly there are parts of the Bible that are overtly doctrinal, for example, the Deity of the Lord Jesus, His resurrection, His vicarious death, His second coming, etc.. Points that are indisputable and inflexible.
However, there are issues that are not biblical nor less doctrinal, for example, the holding of meetings of children, youth, etc.., But that in no way are unbiblical, however, are of benefit to the church. Now, at these points, defend forms is a serious mistake because the only thing that occurs is disagreement derivative of carnality and selfishness of men.
Accordingly, we find ways to defend the church is the clearest sign of immaturity and religiosity. It is the opposite of God's grace and freedom in Christ. It put yoke on the neck of the brothers and is emphasizing the package and peel over the content and substance.The apostle Paul speaking Jewish forms were invading the churches founded on the basis of the grace of God, declares: (Galatians 3:3) "Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? ".

This question of Paul, is saying, having known the truth of things and have enjoyed the "principles" of God, are you going to end up defending forms again?.Brothers! It is past time that we judged according to the rites and forms, now is the principle that calls us, we must not go back to the rudiments of religion, but we must look towards maturity in the sound doctrine of Christ. Look at the forms on the principles, will lead to the sad practice of "straining at a gnat and swallow a camel".
Paul adds something about it: (Colossians 2:16-23) "16 Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival, a new moon or Sabbaths,17 Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ. 18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 And not holding the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase of God. 20 Since you died with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21 'Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch 22 (According to the commandments and doctrines of men), which all are to perish with the using? 23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honor to the satisfying of the flesh. "The text is extremely positive regarding the subject.Although the context points to Jewish practices, the value of it is perfectly applicable to the forms of Christianity today.The apostolic commandment says not to judge in terms of shapes, and conversely, the importance must be placed on the ground and principle, which is Jesus Christ. The rest is just shadow. Paul reasons so teaches us to defend forms is as if we lived in the world still subjected to human precepts and prohibitions of men who try to earn God's favor in exchange for good works.Legitimate Christianity based on the Sound Doctrine of Christ unlike religion, not a religious recruitment center must meet standards inventory, legalistic rules and prohibitions. On the contrary, the legitimate Christianity taught by Christ is a relationship established by God with the sinner in an intimate and continuous loop Paternal education and growth. Not the man who grows up to God but it is God who gives the growth and maturity.
WAYS AGAINST BIBLICAL PRINCIPLESObviously this is not a rivalry between these concepts. The forms are important provided they are under God's principles. I mean, I do not read the Bible that I read it, but because I want to read it. That is true apostolic instruction that says (Philippians 2:13) "For it is God who works in you to will and to do of his good pleasure" Therefore, the forms may only be the consequences of the principles , but never the cause or purpose thereof. For example, a child who has in principle to respect adults, will behave in "form" respectful of such.

If this example will reverse the order, we will have an actor who pretend to respect, but that has rooted the "beginning" of respect. Any organization or society, gather around these concepts of "forms and principles". The Church, being a body whose head is Christ alone, you also need forms and principles.The forms are basically the agreement of the modes or ways to meet, but the principles are the foundation of the meeting. So the legitimate zeal for God not to turn on the forms, which Pharisees of old, but the principles and foundations of the Sound Doctrine of Christ in the scriptures.
Proponents of the ways on the principles, supplanting the glory of God through the merits of men, grace and unleash suppressed works and generate slavery to those who have been set free in Christ.That the sovereign grace of the Lord Jesus Christ help us to defend the principles of the forms. So be it. Amen.
