While hanging with my good friend, Nick, a couple weeks ago, we were batting thoughts around and I asked, ‘Is it ever justifiable in Scripture to lead people away from God’s commandments?’
I have thought long and hard about this and can’t think of any examples. Maybe I’ve missed something, and am therefore asking for your help. Can you think of any instance in Scripture where Yahweh compliments or affirms anyone who leads people away from the Torah?
There are innumerable instances where He is angered and judges those who lead people away from His ways and His voice, but I can think of none wherein He affirms leading people away.
Where does Christendom get the idea that they can lead people away from Yahweh’s everlasting commandments? From Rav Sha’ul (Apostle Paul)? Didn’t he say,
Do we then nullify [a]the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law.
So then, the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.
So, I ask, ‘Is it ever justifiable in Scripture to lead people away from God’s commandments?’
I don’t think so, but what say ye?
