    And NO, Romans 8:2 is a figure of speech.

        You couldn't have put them in order?

        Taking verses out of their context is one thing, but randomizing their order?

        It's no wonder you can't understand the Bible properly, because to you it's just a mishmash of verses.

        Romans 7:6
        But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. - Romans 7:6 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...6&version=NKJV

        Nope.

        No "law of the Spirit."

        2 Corinthians 3:6
        who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. - 2 Corinthians 3:6 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...6&version=NKJV

        Nope.

        No "law of the Spirit."

        Romans 3: 31
        Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law. - Romans 3:31 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...1&version=NKJV

        Nope.

        No "law of the Spirit" there, either.

        Romans 3: 27
        Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. - Romans 3:27-28 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...8&version=NKJV

        Nope. No "law of the Spirit."

        And just like Romans 8:2, "law of faith" is a figure of speech.

        Jeremiah 31: 31-34
        “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord.But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord . For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” - Jeremiah 31:31-34 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...4&version=NKJV

        No "law of the Spirit."

        This is speaking of the covenant God will make with Israel, the people of, you guessed it, the law.

        James 1: 25
        But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. - James 1:25 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...5&version=NKJV

        No "law of the Spirit."

        And in fact, maybe you should read the first verse in James:

        James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings. - James 1:1 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...1&version=NKJV

        Yup. That's right. ISRAEL.

        What is circumcision of the heart to you?
        Not the "law of the Spirit."

          Every verse I referenced speaks about the law of GOD written on the hearts and minds of the believer.

          You seem to simply choose the continually sin. You are free to do so; but don't think you won't be judged according to your word and deed.

          And I didnt randomize anything. I searched Spirit of the law and posted clear references about it.

          • Jesus did not teach the old law, he taught the new law for the new covenant.

            Jesus taught to have faith in him.

            He taught that we have to go through him to get to the Father.

            Those things are not the old law.

            The old law was proclaimed until John the baptizer.

            The new law is that Jesus would be the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. That is not the old law.

            Jesus taught no more eye for eye and tooth for tooth.

            He taught against the divorces that were allowed in the old law.

            He said he would give the saved the Holy Spirit.

            He taught that he forgives sins.

            Jesus taught the new law.
            Oh how I love the Word of God!

            Don't just hear the word and believe it---do it.
