Should Christians Keep the Torah?

Posted on July 21, 2011


 

We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that a person is not justified [1] by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified. – Galatians 2:15-16

The law only brings sin and death – it cannot save us.  It does not bring salvation, nor does it sanctify us.  Our righteousness comes through the perfect keeping of the law by Jesus Christ imputed to us by repentant faith.  Alone.
