Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
My brothers, do you try to combine faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with acts of partiality?
When he comes, he will bring conviction to the world about sin and uprightness and judgment;
to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the godless of all the godless deeds they have done, and of all the harsh things that godless sinners have said against him."
For no human being can be made upright in the sight of God by observing the Law. All that the Law can do is to make man conscious of sin.
Then what shall we conclude? That the Law is sin? Certainly not! Yet, if it had not been for the Law, I should never have learned what sin was; I should not have known what it was to covet if the Law had not said, "You must not covet."
For it is through the Law that I have become dead to the Law, so that I may live for God.
1 John 3:4
Whoever commits sin disobeys law; sin is disobedience to law.
You must not judge so externally; you must judge justly!"
