    Except...that is not what He said.

    The question: "What shall I do to inherit eternal life"

    The answer: "One thing thou lackest...sell whatsoever thou hast"

    Let me ask you one question about the above scripture and statement, what have you done since you fully have the context of that scripture?

    Is Christ telling Christians that we are to keep the Law and sell all we have in order to inherit eternal life and have treasure in heaven? How many believers here have done or do that? No Sir, Jesus has not mention anything about the Law.

    (Mark 10:19) "Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth."

    He wasnt talking to Christians. If He said anything to the contry they would have put Him on a cross to early. This is really basic simple stuff you will learn as soon as you bend the knee and love one and other.

    No, Jesus saw into the man's heart...and was speaking to him...
    He was not telling everyone to do that same thing.

    Yes, it is! Simple.

    If you think something is hard, it is.
    If you think something is easy, it is.

    Meaning that distinction should be made as to who Jesus is addressing and the cirucmstances surrounding when He speaks before we label something a commandment the Church should follow.

    Fair question.
    But, my take is what it is...it will be taken however someone wants to take it.
    Commandments, labels, Church stuff....beyond my pay grade.

    100% needs to be taken into concideration. It either before the cross or after it where it all began. most of matthew mark luke and John are old covanant. Basic stuff.

    From what I read from you thus far, yes it is beyond your pay grade.

    But, no matter how anyone takes it....that doesn't mean their view is true. It behooves the people of God to find out what is being said.
