"command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer" (1 Timothy 1:3 NIV, Holy Bible):
"Thus the Old Covenant, the Ten Commandments, had a definite beginning and a definite end." (J. Mark Martin, The Gospel and The Covenants, exAdventist Outreach,
WHAT THE OLD COVENANT REALLY IS
"Old Covenant" is defined as "(initial capital letter) the Old Testament." (Old Covenant, Dictionary.com, http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/old+covenant)
"The Holy Scriptures of the Christian church contain two Testaments, but they comprise one Bible. The Old Testament, or Old Covenant, remains an essential part of the Christian Bible because the two covenants form one record of God's progressive and redemptive revelation to humankind." (Andrew E. Hill, John H. Walton, A survey of the Old Testament, 2nd ed., Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2000, p 555)
Cult leader J. Mark Martin's contention that the "Old Covenant" is identical with the "Ten Commandments" is wrong.
WHY HE HAS ISSUES WITH THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
The Ten Commandments forbid stealing. While pressuring a gullible congregation for tithes and offerings in exchange for false doctrine is a gray area, some people consider it to be stealing.
GOD'S LAWS STILL EXIST IN THE NEW COVENANT PERIOD
"For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:" (Hebrews 8:10, Holy Bible)(see also Jeremiah 31:33)
FALSE PROPHET ACTIVITY
Pastor Mark teaches his easy-listening doctrines of error to a large and growing congregation.
The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end? (Jeremiah 5:31 NIV, Holy Bible)
CULT MEMBERS EXCLUDED FROM THE KINGDOM - THEY LOVED THE LIES
But there will be an end.
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Revelation 22, Holy Bible)
And this is the end. The gates of the holy city will be thrown open to the Lord's faithful children. To those who "have right to the tree of life". And which people might these be?
Oh, "they that do his commandments". (per Revelation 22:14, Holy Bible)
Commandments? You know -- the commandments Pastor Mark Martin tells you have been done away with.
