The law was given to bring the knowledge of sin, that man may see his inability to keep it; therefore, realizing his impotency before God, that he may turn to Him for salvation. Once this has occurred in the life of an individual the law loses its condemning role, for he has been freed from the curse of the law, and the penalty of sin. Gal. 3:10-13
When we threaten believers with heavenly punishments or judgments through the use of the law, we are using the law unlawfully. Christ died to fulfill the righteous requirements of the law on our behalf, so that the penalty for sin which was death would be removed forever. Romans 6:23
When we use the law to threaten believers, we are actually empowering Satan! Let’s stop and think about this for a moment: If there were no law, what could Satan use to accuse you? Now stop and think about what Christ accomplished when He fulfilled the righteous requirements of the law on our behalf. Col. 2:14-15; what did He accomplish? 1 John 3:8b
I don’t understand why the Christian community has such a hard time grasping this simple concept: That the Lord destroyed Satan’s power over us by removing us from the curse of the law. 1 Cor. 15:56-57
Shouldn’t we all be team players?
