LAW VS SPIRIT by Daniel P. Trombley
Under The Law
In the eyes of most people today, Law and Spirit are Polar opposites. The prevailing thought of our day is that if one walks according to Torah (Law) it negates the ability to be led by the Spirit. Nothing could be further from the truth! Let us remember it was the Spirit (God is a Spirit - John 4:24) that gave and guided Moses at Sinai. We see this pattern and purpose consistently throughout Scripture and continuing with us today.
TOUCH NOT GOD'S ANOINTED by Dr. Daniel Juster, Director Tikkun Ministries
A Dangerous Doctrine
In Samuel 26:9-11 we read about David's refusal to take the life of King Saul even though Saul was pursuing David and seeking his death. David had Saul trapped, and Abishai, David's soldier, asked permission to kill Saul. David responds. "Do not destroy him; for who can stretch out his hand against the Lords's anointed, and be guiltless? ... the Lord shall strike him, or his day shall come to die, or he shall go out to battle and perish. The Lord forbid that I should stretch out my hand against the Lord's anointed ..."

Transformation begins to take root in our thinking
Merriam Webster defines 'law' as the whole system or set of rules made by the government of a town, state, country, etc. When our religious ears hear the word 'law' our minds think on things like hopelessness, impossibilities, punishment, and curses. As one writer put it, interpreting the Hebrew word Torah as law is about the same as interpreting the word father as disciplnarian. While the father is a disciplinarian, it is a very narrow interpretation. The same is true for Torah, a part of Torah is law, but this is a very narrow interpretation of it. The word Torah in Hebrew means utterance, teaching, instruction or revelation from God.
