All those under the law will be declared righteous. It says so in Romans 2. What law is Paul talking about?
In Romans 2:13, Paul says that those who obey the law will be declared righteous. Well, if we’re no longer under the law, then what in the world is Paul talking about here? What law?
What Law is Paul Talking About?
We focus on the Spirit, not on God’s commands. The righteousness of the law is fulfilled in us who walk in the Spirit.
We do not believe we live under the law. But it is our understanding that focusing on God’s commands will almost guarantee that we will fail to keep them. It is also our understanding that focusing on Christ and the walk in the Spirit will guarantee that we will keep them. As Scripture says, the righteousness of the law is fulfilled in us who walk in the Spirit (Romans 8:4).
