Confession of Faith (1902) - Article 8
VIII. Concerning the Divine Law.
¶63. We believe and confess, that the outward part of it dealing with sacrifices, sacred places, times, objects, meats, genealogies, etc., the shadow of things to come, have been fulfilled and set aside by Christ. Romans 10:4; Hebrews 7:19; ch. 9; 10:1; Romans 14:2-6; Galatians 4:3, 9, 10; Colossians 2:16-28; Titus 3:9. But in its spiritual and moral sense the law, in substance expressed in the ten commandments, and by Christ elaborated and given deeper meaning (Matthew ch. 5 etc.) is binding for all times and useful, if any man use it lawfully. Romans 7:14; Luke 10:27; Romans 13:8-10; Exodus 20:17; Matthew 5:17-20; Romans 3:31; 7:12; 1 Timothy 1:8-10; Galatians ch. 3; Romans 3:20; 7:7.
