    The scripture speaks for its self. If the shoe fits, wear it.

    Does sin cause condemnation?

    A broken law is what brings condemnation.

    And what law are you thinking of that Jesus did not fulfill, RP?

    Jesus fulfilled all of the law and he fulfilled it perfectly, Matthew 5:18.

    What is the Spirit's law?

    The law of the Spirit is the Gospel. In the Gospel we have been justified, sanctified and redeemed, 1 Corinthians 1:30 and now stand before God as perfect and complete "In Christ" Colossians 2:10.

    Is this the same gospel the OT church heard?

    "For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them" (Hebrews 4:2)

    The same gospel for the NT church as was preached to the OT church.

    Is that what you mean?

    There is no Gospel in the Old Testament. The Gospel was revealed to the apostles on the day of Pentecost, Acts 2.

    We don't know who the "Them" is in Hebrews 4:2.

    You can begin that anytime, and when you need help, call on Jesus to help you.

    No one is born again until they have been washed clean and received the Spirit of God.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.

    Romans 2:5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart,you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. 6 God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” 7To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. 9 There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; 10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism.

    What is the Spirit's law?
    The Spirit's law is all the law, old and new.

    Do you love others as you love yourself?

    I don't think you do, but that is my humble opinion.

    The old law was Spiritual too.

    You don't even know that Jesus' blood washes us.

    You should stop trying to be a teacher and admit the things you say are against God.
