THE LAW

WHAT IS THE LAW?
The ten commandments.
1. "I am the LORD your God. You shall have no other gods before me." Ex 20:2,3

2."You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God. Ex 20:4-6

3. "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes His name in vain. " Ex 20:7

4. "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." Ex 20:8

5."Honor your father and your mother: that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God gives you"
Ex 20:12

6. "You shall not kill." Ex 20:13

7. "You shall not commit adultery." Ex 20:14

8. "You shall not steal." Ex 20:15

9."You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."
Ex 20:16

10."You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife; nor any thing that is your neighbor's." Ex 20:17

HOW STRICT IS GOD'S LAW?
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. James 2:10

WHAT IS JESUS CHRIST'S RELATIONSHIP TO THE LAW?
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. Gal 3:24

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:17

Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even so I have believed in Jesus Christ, that I might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no man be justified. Gal 2:16

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Gal 3:13,14

I will not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness comes by the law, then Christ died in vain. Gal 2:21

GOOD CLEAN LIVING
Being a "GOOD" person will not justify anyone with God. God saved us according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began. 2Ti1:9

Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; you are fallen from grace. Gal 5:4

GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith. Phil 3:8-9

JESUS FULFILLED THE LAW
For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. Rom 10:4
