Monday: Faith and Law — 4 Comments

  1. I would think an easy solution to the problem of knowing what to do with the moral law would be to remember the texts which indicate that the law would be put in our minds and written in our hearts as Hebrews 8 tells us.

    Amen!(0)
  2. Romans 7:7 references the Ten Commandments, not any Mosaic Law here, confirming God's Royal Law. It says: 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”[Exodus 20:17; Deut. 5:21]

    Amen!(0)
  3. As sinful human beings we cannot and will not atone for our sins, even if our sins are small like a mustard seed, only Jesus can deal with such violations. The law cannot save us, because it need a person to save us, and again this is incorporated in the Ministry of Christ. The purpose of the law then is to direct us to Christ, as we cannot do anything apart from Jesus. Without the law we would not know that we sin, for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Finally, we confess our sins to Jesus who will give us a new lease on life. The blood of Jesus only will wash away our sins, by faith in him. If the law was not good for us, God would have done away with it.

    I thank you.

    Amen!(0)
  4. God meets the purpose of
    the law by saving people
    by faith. The principle of
    faith gives meaning to the
    true idea of the law.
    Justification by faith is
    consistent with the law of
    the Old Testament
    because it affirms God’s
    need to penalize sin and
    resolves that need by
    Jesus’ paying that penalty.Faith
    establishes the law by
    trust in the principle of
    death for sin. Sin requires
    death before we can have
    a relationship with God.
    God’s character demands
    a solution to the sin
    problem. God established
    the law by executing the
    penalty of the law. Faith
    in Christ’s death declares
    the believer free from the
    death penalty. God did
    not ignore the sin issue
    but treated it so seriously
    that He killed His Son on
    the cross so that we can
    have His heaven. He paid
    our debt in full. When we
    place faith in that, God is
    free to declare us as right
    as he is right.
    NB: Pardon me for da short lines, i use phone to type dats why

    Amen!(0)
