:) Oh, yes.
I'll save you the keystrokes. You are incapable of insulting me.
You're not here to learn. You're here to goad. That's why you are an example God has much he wants us to learn from you.
Welcome.
Right, that's the ultimate forum crime isn't it? -- Not here to learn. (horrors)

Not true really. I'm just a picky eater.
Eat the meat, spit out the bones.
I don't swallow anything you are serving.

I go by what Jesus said about the law!!!
You misunderstood Jesus. Do you also misunderstand Paul?

Romans 3:20-22
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. …

Yes, I read it and replied appropriately the first time. Thanks. I won't respond to this again. That you can't see the point of my post and your even repeating your own post that I addressed in that reply is obvious. But, that's OK. :) See, what I was stating is, to put it simply, you err when you , as many do so it isn't just you, call it the (entire) Law of Moses.
In point of fact, and I won't debate this because the Bible says it already, IT IS NOT the Law of Moses!
I wrote "commandments given to Moses" then used the more simple summary phrase "Law of Moses". The logic is straightforward and clear. We aren't debating. You criticized what I wrote. I think your criticism is not warranted, and quite unnecessary.

Hey preacher4truth

Have you found that scripture yet?
The one that says we are saved by Jesus' obedience to the law?
We are still waiting. Tick, tock, tick, tock...

Scriptures were given. But nothing that says we are saved by Jesus' obedience to the law.
Do you have that one?

Here are just a few more things scripture tells us about the law.

The law blesses us.
The law gives us a way to live.
The law has wonderful things in it.
The law rebukes us.
The law gives us delight, knowledge, hope, and wisdom.
You misunderstood Jesus. Do you also misunderstand Paul?

How does under grace work?
It's like a protective covering.
It protects us from the condemnation of the law. (the curse of the law)

Galatians 3:10
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

James 2:10
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

The law blesses us. That's why it is called a curse.
The law gives us a way to live. A yoke of bondage.
The law has wonderful things in it. An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth...
The law rebukes us. Condemns us too.
The law gives us delight, knowledge, hope, and wisdom. Tassels, you need tassels. (don't forget the blue cord)

That's a pretty silly question, considering your username.

How do you work?
Sneaky, apparently.
No, just want to know what people think about things.

I don't get out much LOL

Grace is more than a protective covering.

If it were only a protective covering we would have no power to live a victorious Christian life.
