Our Freedom in Christ - Part 1

Freedom in Christ frees us from religious practices unrelated to salvation

Galatians 5:1 Christ having made us gloriously free—stand fast and do not again be hampered with the yoke of slavery.

These Noachian Laws can be stated as:
1) Not worship idols
2) Not to blaspheme the name of God
3) Establish courts of justice
4) Not to kill
5) Not to commit adultery
6) Not to Rob

After the flood, God allowed mankind to eat the flesh of animals, just as before the flood they ate only fruit and vegetables.

The seventh law regarded the use of animals in false worship. Culturally, it was initially stated as:

7) Not to eat the flesh that had been cut from a living animal.

These are the laws God required of all mankind, even of Gentiles during the time of the Old Covenant.

Notice there there was absolutely no “religion” in these laws. There were no holy days. There were no religious rituals.
