The Law – or – Faith: Error rebutted…

Theological error rebutted: Error> “By relying on your faith you are endangering your soul. Follow the law and you won’t be misled.”

Christian rebuttal,

The Law of Moses, the Commandments, are good moral guides concerning the “moral” aspects of those Laws but attempted obedience to a Law cannot save you (James 2:10; Romans 3:20) as the Law is absent actual regenerative atonement (Hebrews 10). Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the Law of Moses, the Commandments (Matthew 5:17) and ONLY by grace (unmerited favor you cannot earn) through faith (trusting-believing) in Jesus Christ as your God who died to pay your sin-debt will you find atonement-forgiveness for sin, the imputation of Messiah’s righteousness-perfection over your life thereby establishing a relationship with God the Father and receiving the indwelling Holy Spirit as the Seal and Guarantor of that relationship (Ephesians 1:13-14). The Law cannot save you.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NASB)
