Is it “the Law vs. Grace, or Law AND Grace?

What is grace, and what is Law? Can we keep the Law? Or are we dependent on Yahweh’s “grace” to cover our sins without our obedience? Obedience to what? If there is no law, can there be sin? NO. The Scriptures are clear on that. Let’s look at them: Rom. 4:15: “…for where no law is, there is no transgression. Also in I John 3:4, we find: Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. So, no law, no sin. So this being the case, what is “grace,” and what law are we under? Grace is shown to be undeserved pardon for breaking His Law (Rom. 11:6). What confuses most people is the fact that two different laws are being spoken of in the New Testament. First there is the moral law, the Torah, summarized in the Ten Commandments, and summarized even more briefly in what Yahshua called the two Great Commandments – namely, love Yahweh with all our hearts, minds and souls, and love our neighbor as ourselves.

But there was a Law that really was ‘done away,’ at least for now. It is the law that was added because of transgressions, and is the that is now suspended. Gal 3:19  Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

Now ask yourself – since this Law was added because of transgressions, what Law was this, and what was being transgressed? Answer: The Law of sacrifices was added because the moral Law was being broken. Think about it. Yahshua did NOT come to do away with the Law (Mat. 5:17-18), speaking of the moral Law, the Torah, His instructions for mankind. ~
