The True Gospel of Jesus Christ
You Are Not Under Law

Any talk of not being under the law causes many to automatically assume that you are promoting lawlessness. In reality, trying to live under the law is the opposite of living by faith. Living under law is self-empowered living; it is living by your own strength and ability. Living by New Covenant faith is God-empowered living; it is Christ in you living out His life through you.

Living under self-imposed law is essentially saying, "I am presenting myself before God as righteous on my own merits. This is not trusting Christ for your righteousness. As a believer, you are righteous because Jesus Christ lives in your born again heart, joined forever as one to you. You are righteous because He is righteous; it is not because of what you have done.

There should not even be discussions about the Law because it no longer exists and has not existed since Christ. The Law was replaced 2,000 years ago by New Covenant grace. The Gentiles never had any relationship to the Old Covenant Law whatsoever. In fact, after Christ came, the Law became the ministry of "death" and "condemnation" (2 Corinthians 3:6-9).

Jesus fulfilled every "jot and tittle" of the Law for the nation of Israel. Now fulfilled, God ended the Old Covenant Law and replaced it with New Covenant grace which, for the first time, allowed the Gentiles to also receive its promises and benefits. The law is NOT God's standard to live by; faith is God's standard ...

Galatians 3:11 Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "The righteous man shall live by faith."

The near-universal error in the Christian community, what the Apostle Paul described 2,000 years ago, is trusting by faith to get saved and then trying to live out the Christian life by one's own self-effort...

Galatians 3:3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh (self-effort)?
