There is a balance between grace and law that the believer must have hold of to deter error. Possession of one side or the other and you fall into either legalism or antinominaism.
Gods grace and our liberty are not at odds with His law; they comfortably bookend each other and compliment each other. What was it that the Apostle Paul said?
Romans 3:27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith. 28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. 29Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, 30 since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. 31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
Paul is speaking of the law that is relevant to faith and not works; don’t confuse this statement to his references to justification according to the covenant of works; thats not at all what he is saying. He is essentially saying that as believers justified by faith, the law remains under the covenant of grace; it is just defined differently. Now it is a gem to us whereas before Christ, it was a yoke of bondage. So, the believer who is justified through Christ is thankful. We embrace the law; we love it and cling to it as we cling to what Christ has accomplished on our behalf.
Surely God does not intend for you to believe that His law is no more-thats just nonsensical in light of scripture. Grace is amplified and fully illuminated in light of this balance. We run to Gods law, covering ourself in Christ. We love Christ, who loved Gods law. Hence, we also, love Gods law.
Don’t confuse the scriptures intent when the ‘old’ is mentioned as a flawed comparison to Christ and it’s disadvantage-it is pointing to the covenant of works, i.e. “Do this and live”. If you blow this understanding, you will always end up dispensational.
Hermeneutics are flawed, generally, when you split Gods word into 2 separate books. The bible is one, as God is one; Dispensationalism is a great error and Gods people suffer and do no justice to the attributes of God under this flawed theory.
This is why it is so important to have good biblical teachers. If the teacher does not have this stuff onboard, Gods people perish for lack of knowledge.
