Is the Law of the Covenant a Curse?

Is the Law of the Covenant a curse?

Christian response,

The Law is only a curse to the one seeking righteousness through it because the Law mandates perfection (James 2:10) and we’re sinners condemned by a sin-nature (Romans 3:23); therefore, righteousness with the Father is unattainable through the Law (Romans 3:20)…righteousness with the Father is ONLY attainable by faith in the perfection of Jesus as our Messiah who lived a sinless life and died a substitutionary death to pay our sin-debt so that HIS righteousness can be imputed into our life in place of sin (2 Corinthians 5:21).

So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.
