Ever attempting to "stay on target." Whatever that means.

So, any discussion about "the Law" amongst evangelicals is bound to yield some interesting comments. But I was astounded to hear, in a group discussion, a person question the motives of the women who prepared Jesus' body for burial after the crucifixion. The grounds? Luke tells us that they waited until the first day of the week to finish annointing Him with spices, because "on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment." Which obviously means that they esteemed the old commandment more than the new "liberty" they had in Christ.
