Bible Note: Ps. 19:7 ¶ The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
for your answer.
You ask, "Do you not think that his commandments exceed what we know as "The Ten Commandments"?
I do not know what you mean by "exceed." If you are asking if there are more than ten commandments, I would answer yes and no. Yes, God gave other commands, and no in the sense that all the other commands can be summarized in the Ten.
Your next question: " However, if we were to teach legalistically that a Christian must obey the commandments are we not bringing them under law again?"
If by "legalistically" you mean teaching the law as the means by which we attain righteousness or God's approval, no, I am not bringing them under the law, because believers never come out from under the requirement to obey God. As you said we are no longer under the law's CURSE, not out from under it as a rule of obedience and love. But to answer the intent of your question, legalistically teaching the law is wrong.
And your last question: "Brother, do you not think that there were things under the ceromonial law which do not apply to those who are under grace?
Again, yes and no. No they do not apply directly because God no longer requires obedience to the ceremonial laws, and yes they do apply in the sense that all Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching reproof, correction and training in righteousness.
Thanks again, brother,
