Old Testament Vs New Testament: Are We Free To Sin?

Many so called Christians today have a misconception of God and His Holy Word (the Bible) and argue about it.

They believe that a Christian has a free reign to sin because we’re no longer under the Law of the Old Testament, but under the Law of grace.

In their eyes this means that once they come to “accept Jesus” all of their sins are forgiven, passed, present, and future. This is even thou the bible doesn’t say anything about accepting Jesus but rather about following him.

If you try to tell them about living righteously they will tell you “we are not under the Law thus if we stop sinning that would be salvation based on works and we’re saved by grace”.


Let me take a couple of minutes here to clear out these lies and misconceptions that are a direct result of having false teachers in the mainstream pulpits and also as a result of reading false bible versions created by Satanist.

Let me first start by explaining that we are not under the Leviticus Law of the Old Testament that it’s true.

Now we need to understand what was the Law of The Old Testament.

The Law of God consisted of two parts. The rules for righteous living (The Law) – and the rules for dealing with those who break his rules for righteous living.  (Also part of the same law known as the Law of Moses).

The Law for righteous living consisted of no lying, no murdering, no adultery, no stealing, etc. So let’s call this “God’s rules” in order to avoid future confusion.

However, because of the fall of man in the garden of Eden God knew that people would not be able to keep his “rules” and provided a way to forgive them from breaking His “rules”. ( A just judge has to righteously punish law breakers- otherwise he would be an unfit and unfair judge to rule.)

This is where the Leviticus Law comes in, this is the Law consisting of how to deal with those who commit sin and transgress against God’s rules and commandments.  Remember they had a set of rules to follow, then they had another set of rules to follow should and when his given commandments were broken.

That is to say in today’s terminology we have the law, then we have the judicial system to deal with the laws that are violated. (So we have laws to follow and a set of laws to follow to deal with the law breakers.)

Now in order to deal with the ”rules” that were violated and be forgiven from such, The people under the Old Testament had to constantly be sacrificing, lambs, doves, bullocks, etc for the redeeming of one’s sins. (This is because the wages of sin is death) – God used animals as substitutes rather than to take the life of the human sinner. Other greater sins required that person to pay with his or her own life.

But for most of the time God allowed his people to transfer their sins into the sacrificial animal, then destroyed that animal bearing those sins. This became a practice because when Adam and eve first sinned, God had to kill an animal to cover the nakedness of Adam & Eve, when prior they were covered by the glory of God, thus sin resulted in death. First the death of an animal, then the death of Adam & Eve who were created to live forever in their original bodies.

So these sacrificial animals were brought to the high priest to be offered in the Holiest of Holiest in behalf of the people for the redeeming of their sins.

This practice was a constant practice that continued in order to keep redeeming the sins of the people. In addition to the Ten Commandments, there were also Holy days that needed to be kept, rituals that needed to be performed, ordinances, as well as strict regulations and guidelines that had to be followed to the letter.

So we could imagine the constant burden of works that people had to do in order to receive forgiveness from their sins. But God told them and promise them a better covenant and a day when they would receive rest from their works.  That day came when Jesus died for our sins. (Hebrews 8:6 KJV)

Now we rest from the Works of the Old Testament, but we need to work now in the ministry of the gospel given to us by Jesus Christ until the final day of rest, that it’s to say until we reign with Christ. (Hebrews 4: 8-9 KJV)

When Jesus died the New Testament came to life. A testament it’s a “will” and in order for a “will” to come to life and be honored, the death of the person making the will should first take place. (Hebrews 9:16 KJV)

Thus Jesus died to be the sacrificial lamb for the redeeming of our sins. We no longer have to do the works of the Old Testament to receive forgiveness from God, now we can boldly go before the throne of Grace for those things. (Hebrews 4:16 KJV)

So when a person says we don’t have to stop sinning because we’re no longer under the Law, this person does not know what he or she is talking about and is under demonic spirits.

The “rules” of God does not change it is the way God deals with those who brake His “rules” that have changed. The Levitical Law of dealing with Law breakers it’s no longer under effect because Jesus fulfilled the Law himself and through his sacrifice we can receive forgiveness of sins.

Does that mean we can sin all we want?

Forgiveness of sin its only granted to those who wholeheartedly confessed and repent from their sins. Not to people who purposely willingly sin and then they say “I’m sorry” or perhaps even think that all their sins are automatically forgiven without the need of repentance.  (1 John 1:9 KJV) – (Acts 3:19 KJV)

Please understand that we all commit sin through our sinful nature. Our sinful nature will cause us to: lose our patient, blur out a curse word, think bad thoughts, say things we shouldn’t be saying, stumble in our walk with Christ, and things of this nature. However,   this is not an excuse to willingly sin by living ungodly. Willingly and consciously sinning include: committing fornication, adultery, defiling your body with alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, living carelessly, and doing as the pagans and non-believers do  by partaking in their doings.  We as Christians are told in the NEW TESTAMENT Scriptures to be separate from the world. (2 Corinthians 6:17 KJV) (1 Corinthians 10:21 KJV)(James 4:4 KJV)

The so called “Christians” who think we can sin all we want because we’re under grace are stepping into some very dangerous grounds.  The Scriptures say that it would be impossible to renew these people again being that they are re-crucifying Christ over and over again and putting him unto an open shame. (Hebrews 6:4-6)

Do you as a Christian want to re-crucify Jesus on the cross all over again, thus putting him unto an open shame?

Then remember, we are not under the Leviticus judicial system to be pardoned from our sins, but we are always under the righteous”rules” of God. We are not free to sin, but if and when we sin, we should confess our sins to God and repent immediately from those sins.

The correct definition for the word “repent” is to turn away.

Do not be deceived by what some so called Christians say, Repentance it’s necessary for forgiveness and salvation.

    I Partly agree, The levitical law is not the eternal law of God thou. That is flawed thinking. Noah did not have the levitical law, Abraham did not have the levitical law.

    The law as described by Christ was love the Yahweh Elohim with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, secondly Love your neighbor as yourself. and Christ added a new commandment to love fellow christians as Christ loved us. He went further to state that the law prophesied of him because he would fulfill it, the entire mosaic law.

    We are to remember our Sabbath, and be Holy.

    Alcohol is not a sin, Christ drank. To be drunken is a sin.

    We are promised to be chastened and stripped of our idols. So sin may be different for different people.

    To sin is to miss the mark of the Glory of God, So anything that robs Glory from God is a sin,

    The bible is clear that if we say we have no sin we are a liar, it is also clear that anyone who has been made a new creature will not continue to live in sin, not that they will no longer sin, but will not live in it.

    We are to worship our creator in spirit and truth, His Words are spirit and life and will breath into us. It will change the desire of our hearts through time, It will take the tablets of the law the stone heart and turn it to flesh, a life lived in sacrifice to Christ.

    I am not trying to start a fight, just think sometimes we need to be careful because of our natural flesh. Being a pharasitical rule keeper is more gratifying to our flesh than realizing our faith is counted as righteousness and we do things because of our love for Christ and desire to walk as he did.

    • david1057 Says:

      Christ drank alcohol?
      I don’t agree with that statement.
      I also don’t know what your bible says but I go with what the KJV says.
      According to the KJV, there is “wine” and “strong drink” mentioned in it.

      The Word “wine” also means “juice” which is the liquid of the fruit.

      I don’t believe that Jesus drank fermented juice AKA wine. We are told in the Scriptures that Jesus is our pass over and that the pass over should be eaten with unleavened bread. Leaven represents sin in the Scriptures and is a form of fermentation.
      Now, when Jesus partook of the pass over and turned it into the Lord’s supper, he used unleavened bread as God had ordained it from the beginning. He said: this is my body which is broken for you”. Jesus body was pure and had no sin, this is why the bread had to be without leaven which is a form of fermentation which is a representation of sin. Now, he then took the cup and said: “this is my blood”….; now does it make sense that his blood is represented by fermented juice? (Alcoholic wine) – That would lead us to believe that his body was pure (unleavened bread); but his blood was not (fermented wine). And is His Holy blood that cleans all sin away, God would never use alcohol to be a representation of his pureness and Holiness found in the blood of Jesus. Alcohol it self is a representation of sin because nothing good ever, ever, comes from drinking alcohol.

      You also said that drinking alcohol is not a sin, but being drunk is what’s a sin. The problem with that statement is that drinking and getting drunk comes hand in hand.
      Once alcohol is introduced into the body, a person’s ability to rationalize & to judge properly is greatly diminish to the point that he will continue drinking saying to himself that he is not drunk. A person then says to himself that he only drank “a little bit”.
      Then the question becomes, how much is a “little bit”?
      That’s why Jesus said, a little leaven leavens the whole lump. Now that we know that leaven is a fermenter, now apply that same verse with a little alcohol affects the whole body. Just like no one can just have one bite from of a bag of potato chips and walk away, neither can anyone walk away from the affects that the alcohol has on the mind & body. A person can seem to be fully functional but could be in fact drunk. So even the word “drunk” is highly suggestible.
      So the best thing to do is to stick to what Jesus told us to do and not to justify drinking alcohol because Jesus turn water into”wine” which was not fermented or because he had the pass over which also there was no fermentation taking place there. In the Scriptures fermentation = sin and nothing good ever came out of those who drank alcohol in the Scriptures.

      Now, please tell me if this makes any sense to you?

    Why did Jesus say this at Matthew 9:17?
    What causes the old bottles or skins to break?
    17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

    And what about Jesus first miracle? Why wouldn’t people know the difference between the good wine and the worse at John 2:9, 10?

    9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
    10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

    Why should deacons at 1 Timothy 3:8 not be given to much wine?

    8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

    • T&L-M Says:

      I believe that the parable is a metaphor for us as a vessel. We must become new vessels by emptying ourselves out of sin so we could be fitted vessels for the Holy Spirit to operate in us. Now, follow this with Jesus analogy of the wine bottles and it should all make sense then.

      Your 2nd question I don’t really understand because people did know the difference between the good wine and the bad wine. In parties, the best wine is serve first while people are sober and can comment about it. Once they get drunk, they serve them the cheap wine because by this time they are too drunk to be able to tell the difference. In this case, Jesus’ wine was the best and they were surprised that the best was saved for last. Jesus’s wine was so good that even intoxicated guests were able to tell the difference when usually that’s not the case. (However, I don’t believe the wine Jesus created had any alcohol on it)

      Your 3rd question is concerning deacons not being given to much wine. We are told in the scriptures to be vigilant and of sober mind. That is all Christians should and must be vigilant of a sober mind, then how much more someone of a position of authority within the body of Christ?
      Not given to much wine means someone who does not indulge in wine drinking. An occasional glass with food for digestion purposes is permitted, but drinking to get a buzz or get drunk is not as it weakens the mind, creates poor judgements, and opens demonic doors. Drinking a small glass of wine with food does not intoxicate because the food is present and prevents intoxication that otherwise could occur in excess on an empty stomach.
      Another qualification is that a deacon as well as anyone in the body of Christ should not be motivated by greed to do the work of God and should not say one thing and do another which is what double tongued means. In other words, they should practice what they preach.
      I hope this helps!

      God Bless!!!

    Also forgot to include this account of Noah. Genesis 9:21

    21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

    • T&L-M Says:

      I don’t believe anything fishy took place here with Noah and his son as some are led us to believe. What simply happened was that his son broke a commandment of God by seeing the nakedness of his father. According to Leviticus 18:7 KJV, God instructed his people among other things, not to discover the nakedness of their fathers as well as mother. Ham (Noah’s) son violated this commandment by not looking away at his father’s nakedness but looked and made fun of him. If you recall, the other 2 brothers enter the room backwards as to no look upon their father’s nakedness and covered him. Because of this violation, Noah cursed him when the 2 other brothers told him about it.
