Colossians 2:14



14 Blotting out [exaleipho] the handwriting [cheirographon] of ordinances [dogma] that was against [kata] us, [hemon] which [hos] was [en] contrary [hupenantios] to us, [hemin] and [kai] took [airo] it [autos] out of [ek] the way, [mesos] nailing [proseloo] it [autos] to his cross; [stauros] KJV-Interlinear



14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us and which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. NASB



In this world there are but two laws.The first is the Law of Grace, in which God makes policy and sustains history and His plan by means of His grace (favor).


And the second law is the Law of Legalism, often times called the Mosaic Law or the Levitical Law, or simply a reference to the laws of society combined with its norms and standards.


There is but one way to get into heaven, and that is through faith in Christ. This is courtesy of the grace of God.


But there are those who believe that they can live the perfect life, obey the Ten Commandments, be good in life, be sincere in life, be basically honest just as long as you do not intentionally bring harm to anyone, be sincere, and that view is bogus and false.Why? Because it is impossible to accomplish.


The Levitical Laws became so vast and numerous, so as to control nearly every aspect of ones life, that they became a huge burden, an impossibility, too complicated to follow, and so much so, that the Priests began writing exceptions to the laws, and then exceptions to the exceptions.They became a legislative regulation nightmare consisting of volumes and volumes of written regulations and ordinances, that even the most proficient expert in them, had difficulty in making interpretations.


In ancient times, when an obligation was fulfilled, the document was nailed to a post, or a knife was run through it in a manner of canceling its authority. This was a public proclamation so that anyone and everyone could see that the obligation was fulfilled and no longer in force.


Today we stamp a document as cancelled, or paid, or satisfied, and record it in a public recording office.


Christ did the same thing with respect to the Mosaic Law.


No one could live the perfect life and therefore be qualified to enter into heaven. Not only is man born spiritually dead, but man cannot even come close to living a perfect life capable of cancelling out his spiritual death.So, humanity is burdened with a tremendous obligation, a sentence as it were, of total and permanent separation from God because of sin.


Jesus Christ came along, was born by means of the seed of the woman (not by the seed of the man in Adam all have sinned, therefore Joseph was left out of the pregnancy process, and thus the virgin pregnancy), and thus Jesus was born without the sin nature.


Jesus went to the Cross a fully honorable man, fulfilling the Law perfectly, and therefore in effect nailed the Law document to the Cross, finished, fulfilled, cancelled, completed, void, satisfied, etc., with no further obligation upon anyone ever again.


The Law of Grace, or as we often call it the Law of Christ, is the only currently existing obligation that we are subject to now. And in order to fulfill that obligation, all we need do is believe in Christ.


The burden is lifted and gone.


What remains now is Gods grace, which is free.


Or mans arrogance (stubbornness, indifference, self-righteousness, subjectiveness, bias, opinionated, etc.), which is absurd.
