Response to Re: Yes, one jot or tittle shall not pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. And it has been
stealing, murdering, etc., whatever the New Testament prohibits. Though you mention taking the Lord's name in vain, I don't see that in the New Testament. And after all, the name Yahweh has been discontinued in the New Testament (even in quotes from the Old Testament, where it is usually replaced by Lord, sometimes by God), and the short version of the name, Yah, is used only twice in the New Testament, both times in the command Hallelu Yah, written alleluia in Greek, meaning Praise Yah. So I believe the Old Testament commandment not to take Yahweh's name in vain, given to the Israelites, does not apply now. I know some Christians claim the Ten Commandments are for all people, but there is nothing in the New Testament that would say that, and when you read the Ten Commandments, they are clearly to Israel. They are part of the Law of Moses, which was for Israel, is not for us. So likewise we don't need to worry about not working on the seventh day of the week. We can work any day.
