5. The Commandments of Christ

Virtually every Christadelphian Statement of Faith includes, as an appendix, a list of the commandments of Christ.

When we believe the truth, we must next obey the commandments. If we fail to do this, the truth is not only no advantage to us, but will be to our condemnation. A community in which the commandments of Christ are not obeyed is not the house of God, no matter how correctly the truth of God may be discerned as a theory.

It cannot be too plainly stated that Christ has said, “You are my friends if you do whatever I have commanded you”, and “Not every man that saith ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but only he that doeth the will of my Father”. “Many will say unto me in that day, ‘Lord, have we not preached in thy name, and in thy name done many wonderful works?’ Then will I profess unto them, ‘I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity’.”
