Apart From the Law

But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify (Romans 3:21).

Roman 3:19 – Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; 20 because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.

because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression Romans (4:15).

To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law (Romans 5:13).

Romans 7:6 – But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.
7 What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said, “YOU SHALL NOT COVET.” 8 But sin, taking opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind; for apart from the Law sin is dead.

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes (Romans 10:4).

We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, (1Timothy 1:9).

For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God (Galatians 2:19) [see Romans 8:2].

having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross (Colossians 2:14) [see also John 1:9].

    The longer I listen to Ratman Piper (and every Calvinist/Reformed Person), the eviler this man-based theology becomes (when I thought it was impossible). I look at Acts 2: 38–41, and I can’t help but wanting to slit my head off my body to hear a Calvinist/Reformed Confused person trying to peddle their “gospel.” If Peter had taught TULIP and all the smelly waste matter that goes with that, then 30 0000 would have sprinted home, away from Christ, that day. And truly, that’s what Calvinism by whatever name it poses has done since man created it.

    And, yes, I have seen these deceivers trying to sell a God-hates-you gospel (why they would do it in the first place; well; the one indoctrinated guy said that “in case one of the elect–who is not yet elected at the time of the preaching but has been elected before the creation and 12 days before that–“hears it and believes”. And people with a quarter of a brain believes this poppycock?). It’s a contradiction within a contradiction. It’s the saddest thing to see . . . someone who is not a Christian (but a member of a vicious and dangerous cult) trying to convince people who they believe have not been elected to maybe become elected if God had indeed elected them . . . hoo . . . and no one knows! Wow, what a mystery! Wow, how mysterious and Calvinist the ESV is? Wow, what a coincidence! Wow, a miracle!.God is a Calvinist, wow. I am so impressed…not, not, not.

    Calvinists take their man-made junk theology (the obvious teaching of demons) and then force and twist it into the Bible cleverly and cunningly because Satan may be evil, but he is not stupid. Why are they doing that . . . ultimately? To keep as many away from Jesus and heaven. And these workers of iniquity will use anything (including their fake power and fake authority and thumb sucked “gnosis), to reach their goal. Therefore, the huge irony when these false teachers warn against “false teachers” (talking about themselves).

    I think it was John Immel who has said it’s a waste of time to debate a Calvinist. It is more than a waste; it’s an embarrassment. You’re up against little robots who cannot think.
