Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
My brothers and sisters, do not show prejudice if you possess faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ.
"'You must not deal unjustly in judgment: you must neither show partiality to the poor nor honor the rich. You must judge your fellow citizen fairly.
Now when they heard this, they began to drift away one at a time, starting with the older ones, until Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.
And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong concerning sin and righteousness and judgment --
to execute judgment on all, and to convict every person of all their thoroughly ungodly deeds that they have committed, and of all the harsh words that ungodly sinners have spoken against him."
For no one is declared righteous before him by the works of the law, for through the law comes the knowledge of sin.
What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! Certainly, I would not have known sin except through the law. For indeed I would not have known what it means to desire something belonging to someone else if the law had not said, "Do not covet."
For through the law I died to the law so that I may live to God.
1 John 3:4
Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; indeed, sin is lawlessness.
