When Jesus was resurrected, he appeared to his children in the New World, the Nephites. After he told them that they didn't have to live the Law of Moses anymore, they couldn't believe it.
How could the Law of Moses be . . . done?
Jesus reassured them:
And Jesus said unto them: Marvel not that I said unto you that old things had passed away, and that all things had become new.
Behold, I say unto you that the law is fulfilled that was given to Moses.
The law in me is fulfilled, for I have come to fulfill the law; therefore, it hath an end.
(3 Nephi 15:2-5)
Like those Nephites, we have to decide whether to continue living a lesser law that has been fulfilled in Christ, which has ended; or whether to follow Christ.
Behold, I am the law and the light. Look unto me . . .
Behold, keep my commandments; And this is the law and the prophets.
(3 Nephi 15:9-10)
Okay. So we are beholden to no law but Christ; there are no commandments but His; and his prophets testify of this as His servants, pointing us to Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith.
Eulogy for A Law Fulfilled
Dear Tithing, thank you for being our schoolmaster. We can't believe you have passed away and are no longer with us. The stories we have told, the memories we have, the good we accomplished. . . we will always remember you.
We are grateful that you helped the First Presidency get out of debt by 1907. We are grateful you have paid for a lot of stuff.
Mostly, though, we are grateful that you served as a stepping stone towards Christ, pointing us towards something greater, something better.
As we follow Christ now, and turn towards Him, we shall treasure the lessons we learned from you.
Farewell, old friend.
Where Do We Go From Here?
This is not the end; it is only the beginning.
But old things must pass for new growth, in order for Christ to pour new wine into our souls.
We were never meant to take Tithing into Zion. Jesus has a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory in store for us.
He is our Shepherd. Shall we try His way?
Shall we pursue equality through living the Lord's law of Common Consent?
