Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
but who know that a man is not made upright by doing what the Law commands, but by faith in Christ Jesus??ven we believed in Christ Jesus, so as to be made upright by faith in Christ and not by doing what the Law commands??or by doing what the Law commands no one can be made upright.
For we all make many mistakes. Anyone who never makes a mistake in what he says has a character that is fully developed and is able to control his whole body as well.
1 John 1:8
If we say, "We are without any sin," we are deceiving ourselves, and there is no truth in our hearts.
Then they sang a new song: "You deserve to take the roll and open its seals, for you have been slaughtered, and with your blood have bought for God men from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation,
I said to him, "You know, my lord." He said to me, "They are the people who come through the great persecution, who have washed their robes white in the blood of the Lamb.
In it God's way of uprightness is disclosed through faith and for faith, just as the Scripture says, "The upright will have life because of his faith."
And he whom I accept as righteous will find life through his faith. But if a man draws back, my heart can take no pleasure in him."
For we hold that a man is made upright by faith; the observance of the Law has nothing to do with it.
