without works

The Purpose of The Law

“... by the deeds (works) of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight…” (Rom. 3:20).

It’s strange that so many sincere people can so misunderstand God’s written Word as to suppose that He gave the Law “to help us to be good” or “as a rule of life.”

The Law was not given to help us to be good, but rather to show us that we are sinners and need a Savior. Rom. 3:22-23 says that “there is no difference, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
