Old Or New?
“I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” – Matthew 12:36-37
Is this under the Old Covenant? Or under the New? If you stated under the New because it is in the New Testament, you would be wrong.
It is placed in the New Testament, yes, but the Bible should be divided by the Cross. Jesus hadn’t died yet, making this part of the Old Covenant.
Why is that important?
Because Jesus took all our sins. He took the punishment for all our sins, so we would never have to feel the wrath of God against us ever again.
