Biblical Christianity Is Obligated to the Laws of King Jesus

It is an unlawful use of the law – and abuse both of law and gospel – to pretend that its accomplishment by Christ releases believers from any obligation to it as a rule. Such an assertion is not only wicked, but absurd and impossible in the highest degree: for the law is founded in the relation between the Creator and the creature, and must unavoidably remain in force so long as that relation subsists. No true believer can deliberately admit a thought or a wish of being released from his obligation of obedience to God, in whole or in part; this thought is an abhorrence to him. 

~John Newton

Biblical Christianity is not anarchy. The King of kings has commands we, as His slaves, MUST obey IF we are His and love Him.

Luk 6:46  "Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?

Joh 14:15  "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
