I fully understand the Gospel, sister, but being free from the Law does not free you to now say that sin is no longer sin. It only frees you from sin.Indeed, that is the purpose of the Law (schoolmaster).....then we graduate into LIFE, where we are not under the law any more. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. Those aren't just empty words, brother. Romans 4:8
It's also in vain if you say that you have no sin.Of course all men need God's Grace. His death is only in vain if we reject it.
Those who claim that they have no sin, make His death a sham.Those who are IN CHRIST JESUS have not rejected it....they have been persuaded that He has performed what He has promised.
No one suggested anything like that, or even came close to suggesting anything like that.We certainly can't keep the law well enough to earn Grace.
A comment like that is most likely why Paul told women not to teach.We can't have enough kids to earn it, and we can't earn it by making our wives have babies where babies aren't meant to grow.
The conversation has NOTHING to do with "obedience", and EVERYTHING to do with "choosing" to call what is a sin, not a sin, thus calling the death of Jesus meaningless.There is not one of us who can find justification through obedience of the law.
Nobody has, or would, who knows the gospel. It is indeed a mistake to claim that Jesus did not die for our sins, by claiming what is a sin, is not a sin. And the reason, people do that, is because they refuse to admit that they willfully sin, and instead lie against the truth to defend themselves.We certainly don't obtain life through obedience to the law, and we will never be made righteous by obedience to the law. To claim we are still under the law for righteousness is a mistake.
