    What do Christians believe is meant by: Curse of the law?

    What is the curse? What law? How does one obtain this curse, how are they cursed, what is cursed to happen? Please cite chapter and verse if your views are supported by scripture. Thanks.

    for the meaning and
    need for the law, we should probably start with the Old testament. I could be
    more conclusive using the full set of scriptures I have at my fingertips but I
    will settle with the standard cannon used by all Christian sects, even... read more

    Only the False Apostle said that. But in John it says
    John 7:49 "But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed".

    Paul even said Yahshua was cursed
    Galatians 3:13 "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree":

    Paul's writings are in the Bible because they test us in the word.
    Yahshua said to leave the tares with the wheat.

    Matthew 13:30
    "Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn".

    You cant obtain the curse because you are already under its Power, and to escape the curse, only God can take you from it and out of it.

    Gal 3:13      Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree:

    Rom 3:24     Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    The curse of the Law is "Sin" and the wages of sin is death

    Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Rom 6:9      Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

    Rom 6:16     Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

    **Christ accepted the curse—the wages of sin—of disobedient humanity upon His shoulders.
    But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree."GAL 3:13
    ** Christ - Christ alone. The abruptness of the sentence shows an holy indignation at those who reject so great a blessing. Hath redeemed us - Whether Jews or gentiles, at an high price. From the curse of the law - The curse of God, which the law denounces against all transgressors of it. Being made a curse for us - Taking the curse upon himself, that we might be delivered from it, willingly submitting to that death which the law pronounces peculiarly accursed. Deu 21:23.
    The curse of the law is the curse that we automatically reap for sin, without the acceptance of Jesus free gift this curse cannot be cancelled. Boils down to reaping what you sow for = no Jesus no freedom know Jesus Know freedom!
    The spirit of the Lord = Freedom


    Break all curses****

    Imagine this scene ...
    You are taking care of a child and they're playing happily in the middle of the room. You have a plate of biscuits but you're saving them for later on when a friend comes round, so you place them on a table and tell the child they're not allowed to take one of the biscuits. You then go in the kitchen to make lunch.
    The child now knows that there are biscuits in the room. And knows they aren't allowed to eat them.

    That's what I think it means, that now people knew what they shouldn't do, it just tempted us more.

    Not that it wasn't necessary though, because without laws people would do a lot of unhelpful stuff anyway, so needed to be told what was good and what wasn't.

    the Law is what ever man will be judged by , who does not accept Jesus Christ as savior and Lord.
    the Law and even "generational curses" that will pass down from family to family, can only be broken by the Blood of Jesus Christ and our faith and trust in Him and His finished work at the Cross -

    Christ fulfilled the Law in Totality (Matthew 5) that is why prayer shawls, shofars, The Hebraic Roots Movement, soaking prayer and multitudes of other foolishness are just that, foolishness.

    When one comes to Jesus these things are wiped away, broken and no longer needed - when you stay under these or return to these things after knowing the truth - you willingly place your self under the Law (a curse) again.

    The Law could not save unregenerate man therefore Christ came, died, rose again to fulfill the Law - Christ is the only way to Heaven...
