Under God's fair and just law, disobedience deserves the penalty of death. The law of sin and death exploits that fact, and unjustly deceives people into incurring that penalty (Romans 7:9-12). 2 Ancient law Since the law of sin and death was operating from ancient times, so must there always have been law from God. He walks in newness of life (6:4) and serves in newness of Spirit (7:6)" (Leon Morris, The Epistle to the Romans, p. 270). "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who. In this passage “Romans 7” Paul is teaching is an analogy. The hearers understood that like a marriage being bindingthe Law holds sway over us. Freedom from a marriage comes. In Romans 7 Paul expounds on his statement in Romans 6:14, "For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace." In 6:15-23, he used the analogy of slavery to show that we will not sin under grace because we have become enslaved to God and righteousness. Paul is trying to say that the law makes us conscious of our sin. That despite the law being good, true, holy, however you want to say it, that the law makes our sin plainly visible. In the whole context of the chapter, he is making a dialectical argument, saying that our obligation to the law is annulled because of our newfound freedom in Christ..

Examine my heart and see if there is any sinful covetousness within, and wash me clean, I pray. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. Previous: Romans 7:6. The Protestants use Rom. 7 to do away with the Law. It says, 'you're cleared from the Law.' I heard this minister say, 'You're cleared from the Law and you appropriate righteousness from God.'

Yet, if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”. The Law and Sin. 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sinfulCertainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law() For I would not have known what. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself.' But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. . . . If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law." (Compare Romans 7:4, 6.). So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. (Romans 7:1-25) Using colors makes the various laws being discussed clear. The majority of the context. Romans 7 verse 9 also reveals that he is not speaking about his personal experience when he writes, "I was once alive apart from the law." Paul was born as a Jew and had been instructed in the law from his childhood. He could not have said of himself that there was a time in which he lived without the law.
