    Can The LAW be done away with?
    No LAW, No SIN

    Many well-meaning Christian leaders have said, “We don’t have to keep the law any more,” supposedly because we’re no longer underthe law, but grace. But many of these same Christians would freely admit that sin is still in the world. Yet if there can’t be crime without a law specifying what is a crime, how can there be sin without a moral law defining sin? “For where there is no law there is no transgression” (Romans 4:15 NKJV; See also Romans 7:7.).

    If sin still exists, then logically, so must God’s law. And the Bible is quite clear regarding the ongoing eality of the problem of sin. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). (Also read 1 Kings 8:46; Romans 5:12; and Galatians 3:22.) It doesn’t take much faith to believe in the sinfulness of humanity; it’s all around us.

    Moreover, the following verses, all from the New Testament, hardly sound as if the Ten Commandments have been abolished: “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. If thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law” (James 2:10, 11). Also read Matthew 5:27, 28; 1 John 5:2; and Revelation 14:12. On the contrary, they have to be about the Ten Commandments, because if there were no law, there would be no transgression. “Where there is no law there is no transgression” (Roman 4:15 NKJV). The Ten Commandments reveal our transgressions, our sins.

    “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin” (Romans 3:20). It’s by the law that we know the reality of sin, meaning the Ten Commandments are still intact.

    How much clearer could the Word of God be?
