Do and Teach - Commandments of Jesus Christ
Doing and teaching the commandments of God is what Jesus Christ has commanded us to do. This pattern of God commanding us and our part of doing and teaching the commandments has been since the beginning of Creation.
Exo_4:15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.
It has also been the pattern since the beginning for Satan and his ministers to encourage people to disobey God.
Gen_3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
The 2x2 religion along with many other false religions will try through various reasonings (that include their added lies) to encourage people to disregard the commandments of God. Satan didn't even disagree with Eve about what God had said. Satan simply implied evil motives to God so that Eve would doubt God and do what appeared good in her own eyes.
Here are some of the reasonings that 2x2s give for ignoring God's commandments:
While many of these things contain a whisper of truth, they are largely based on lies, misunderstandings, false insinuations and accusations and purposeful twists of scripture. The Bible has man things to say about keeping the commandments of God:
Rom_6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Rom_16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith
This passage is really interesting, "the obedience of faith". This fits nicely with what Paul also taught that faith without works (the result of obedience) is dead.
1Co_14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
Today, many "Christian" women would just say to Paul, "But we're not under the old testament law, so we can do what we want." And they would. And they do. Sadly, they don't even know what the New Testament is because the majority of preachers and "Christian" churches don't believe in the New Testament.
2Co_10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
This is another unpopular verse among the 2x2 religion because the WORKERS want all thoughts to be brought captive to their way of thinking. This goes back to what Paul said to the Romans about whoever we obey, we are captive to.

|To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.|
