James 2:10, the Law, our condemnation, what does that mean?

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” — James 2:10 (KJV) What does that mean?

James 2:10 expresses, articulates, the futility of seeking covenant relationship with the Father by obedience to Law, a Law of ordinances that only defines our sin void atonement (Romans 3:20).

James 2:10 means that no man will find righteousness (a right standing) with the Father through vain attempts to keep the Law (Romans 3:20-23) as only perfection will be accepted as blood atonement for our sin (Hebrews 10); therefore, someone other than a man born of the seed of Adam (Romans 5:12) must make intercession for us in order to appease the Father’s wrath and curse for sin (Ezekiel 18:20-24; Genesis 2:17).

Animal sacrifices could not assuage the Father’s wrath (Hebrews 10:4) but foreshadowed One who would come, a “spotless lamb” (John 1:29; 1 Peter 1:19), that would provide blood atonement for the sins of the World; therefore, the Son entered Time born of the virgin seed (Galatians 4:4; Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23) and walked among us in flesh for 33.5-years without sin (2 Corinthians 5:21) and offered Himself as blood atonement to fulfill the mandates of Leviticus 17:11 and the Father agrees by covenant promise (Hebrews 8:12) to forgive and forget the sin of the one who who believes-trusts in the Son, Jesus Christ, as Messiah believing that Jesus died to pay their sin-debt for them…a sin-debt they could never pay them self through self-righteousness via law-keeping (2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 10:9-10; John 3; Galatians 2:16).

James 2:10 and Galatians 3:10 and Galatians 2:16 and Romans 3:20 and Romans 8 and 2 Corinthians 5:21 and Hebrews 10 and John 3 clearly articulate the truism that the only Path to LIFE and Truth in Time and Eternity is Jesus Christ as our Messiah (John 14:6; Acts 4:12).
