Should We Follow the 10 Commandments
Dear Pastor Sid:
Hello Pastor Sid. I read your column every week. Thank you for answering our questions. Are we supposed to follow the 10 Commandments or do we just live in a day of grace and faith?
Asking for a Friend
Hi, asking for a Friend,
There are three types of laws in the Old Testament. There is the Jewish Civil Law, the Ceremonial Law to regulate the Temple, and the Moral Law like the 10 Commandments. The Christians of today do not follow the Civil Laws or Ceremonial Laws but must certainly follow the Moral Law which is in part the 10 Commandments. Can you imagine a society where murder, theft, and deceit are the normal activities? Society acts the way it does because we have walked away from the Bible and the morals of the 10 Commandments. So, your answer is a definite “YES.”
 
 
Two Witnesses of Revelation 11??
Dear Pastor Sid,
The book of Revelation mentions two witnesses in chapter 11. Any idea who these men are?
John from Denton
Hi John from Denton,
You are referring to Revelation chapter eleven verses 1-13. The Bible does not name these two witnesses or preachers, so perhaps we will never know who they are. Some speculate that they are Enoch and Elijah since both were transported to heaven in the Old Testament. Or these two witnesses could be part of the 144,000 Jewish witnesses that will cover our globe with preaching during the days of Revelation Tribulation. I tend to believe that they are just two unknown preachers that live in that generation and God will use them to do great things in the 7-Year Tribulation Period (see Revelation 6-19).
