I believe the issue of Grace vs Law is an issue that needs to be resolved. But there are many who mix Grace and Law together. What is the Bible answer to this question and why is it so difficult to resolve?

PandN- I heard this saying long ago, but don't remember exaclty who it was that said it:
Grace is what God shows towards man, faith is what man shows towards God. Your answer is exactly right and thank you.
celafoe- Thanks for your answer. I am amazed with how many don't understand the Book of Romans which completely explain God's grace or the fact that Jesus died on the cross and fulfilled the law. I agree with your answer.
Dr. Haddox- No man who has ever lived is without sin except Jesus Christ and possibly King Melchizedek. Therefore it is ONLY through God's grace that ANY person will enter into the Kingdom of God. Jesus Christ paved the way to God's Grace.
Sorry graceinus - but since I am sure you have not met every man that has lived on the earth, you are unable to support your statement "No man who has ever lived is without sin....." Therefore, your statement is simply an assumption.
tab-- then you are saying ,since Jesus someone else has done this? hogwash, Jesus did it because no man could. And when He did it it completed the law and it is of no current use except as an example.
NotPC- Your answer is a good start but I believe it goes a bit deeper than that. One also need grace through faith. The book of Romans explains it very well if one takes the time and effert to study it (in it's context). God bless.
lesliebyars- I agree which means we are under grace.
The Stages of Me- Thank your for you answer. Blessings
RealityTalk- Thank you for your answer.
I have this "thing" w/the time 3:33. I paused a NetFlix movie & 33:33 was left w/19:16 to go, then I thought look up verse 19:16 & see how it applies to your question & viola. True story! Now is that weird or what?
Yep. never heard of anything like that happening before.
I thought you'd get a kick out of that. No, that is not the first time for me. I've had what some would call clairvoyant and empathetic experiences. But I usually chalk things up to being aware of my surroundings & doing the right thing.
Some people do have a knack for be at the right place at the right time. But it very seldom happens to me. But that's O.K.
danieliem- I am fully aware of the Book of Romans. It explain God's grace far better than any other book in the bible. The problem is far to many people take many of it verses about grace out of context. Then claim we must follow the 10 Commandments.
If we have a relationship with God then by our faith he will transform us into the children he desires us to be. We will love him with all our body, mind and soul and we will love others as we love ourselves. This IS the law.
taburkett- I'll quote what you just said; "God is a forgiving spirit." GRACE. No matter how hard we try not to sin we will fail at some point. I do like your answer. Thanks
To take out a segment of text and declare that there is none righteous, no, "not ONE righteous!," will entangle a person in a whole world of contradiction (1 John 3:7).
I don't understand your gibberish.
He that lives righteously demonstrates that he is righteous and resembles the One with whom he fellowships with. Self-righteousness is not of Christ, but a pious front to deceive others into thinking that it is.
Norine Williams- I warned you before about commenting in my Articles and questions. Your comments will be deleted. Do not comment again.
1Jn 3:7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;
As disciples we copy what Jesus did and we are righteous.
