The Law and the Knowledge of Sin

TTRomans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

God gave the Law so that mankind would realize they are sinners.  The Law is foundational in what we know as the Ten Commandments.  No man can keep the Law unless they are perfect, but that is not their purpose.  Their purpose is to convince stubborn man that he cannot attain to God’s standard.

Why would there be a great move to remove the Ten Commandments from public facilities?  Because man doesn’t want to confront God’s standard.  Man doesn’t want to know he is a sinner, but hiding one’s head in the sand does not change the truth.

Let’s do everything we can to keep God’s law before people.  It really needs to be written on the hearts of the individual. It’s not weather it’s on a building or in a school.  This important thing is that it makes its way to the heart of a person.
