Question: Aren't Christians bound to the Old Testament law? Answer: No. When a person becomes a New Testament Christian, the Old Testament law becomes null and void. Many religions, especially Seventh-day Adventists, believe that the law is not finished, so believers must still adhere to its commandments. They strongly cling to the Mosaic law, claiming that a true child of God will not reject the Old Testament and observe the Sabbath and some dietary customs. However, they do not actually abide by the Levitical law, such as the death penalties, arguing that we are not under the law but under grace. That makes them biased in picking and choosing whatever law they prefer to keep. The Seventh-day Adventist church fervently hold onto the law so much that they integrate it with their salvation. They say that they believe salvation by grace without the works of the law, but when a person carefully reads between the lines of their creed, he will discover that they actually trust in the law for their salvation.
