The New Includes the Old

In Romans 7, Paul said that he had two laws fighting in him, God’s Law and the law of sin and death. Since many today are incorrectly taught and they believe that God’s Law is done away, then the law in them is the law of sin and death. However, scripture teaches that God’s Law is known to them. It is written on their hearts. This is the new covenant.

“I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people”. Hebrews 8:10.

Hebrews 8:8-10 is a quote from Jeremiah 31. There is no doubt about the intent of the verse. If you believe that God’s Law is done away then you must also acknowledge that there is no new covenant. The new covenant includes God’s Law.
