The Law is a mirror that reveals man in his sinful condition. Many people look in the mirror and try to convince themselves they are right, however, instilled inside of every one of us is the knowledge of right from wrong. The mass majority of people today try every way they can to avoid this knowledge. We use drugs, alcohol, food, television and many other things to separate us from our conscience. Sin separates us from God. “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Romans 3:19-20 NKJV.
If you ask someone about God the first two words you hear is I think or I believe. They create a God that suits their lifestyle or a God they form to their own needs. That is not how it works. We are a fallen people. Without God there is no good within us whatsoever. Man paints a rosy picture of himself and the future, but if you’ve been on this earth for very long you know for yourself that man is continuing to become more and more evil. God makes it very clear that He is not saving men through the keeping of a moral code. There is nothing wrong with the moral code, the Law, but there is something radically wrong with us. God’s standard is nothing less than perfection. God is holy, and even one sin is enough to keep you from Heaven. The Bible warns “Whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.” James 2:10NKJV
