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 sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law (1Corintians 15:56).

Galatians 3:21-Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. 22 But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe. 23 Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. 26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    Ya, I must agree on this, that if a woman knows the true gospel/justification through being born again, let her preach it. With all these Calvinist devils around, let the woman speak. Jesus never prohibited that a woman is not allowed to speak the truth, but He did shut up many male false teachers, yes?

    I also don’t see Calvinism/Reformed Theology as anywhere near biblical. It is or it ain’t, and it’s simply evil (see all my previous comments). One and one can’t maybe be two. It is or it’s not. And Calvinism and all its rotten, death-bringing rotten fruit (ACBC, Reformed rubbish, all its false preachers, etc.) are anti-biblical, ant-God, anti-Jesus, anti-Holy Spirit, anti-life. End.
