Can we be saved by Grace without the Law?

6-12-22 Can we be saved by Grace without the Law?

The Nugget:

Gal 3:24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

Gal_3:25  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

The Muslim question:

“So does being under Grace grant you Guarantee to get salvation without the Law?”

My Answer:

Anyone who depends upon their full obedience to Law for salvation will fail to receive salvation. The whole Bible proclaims this truth.

Leviticus 18:5  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

Notice the included statement: “which IF a man do.” The rest of the Bible affirms that no man has ever met this requirement except the Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior, pointing to the very reason we need a Savior.

Deuteronomy 6:25
25  And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.
King James Version

Notice carefully in Deuteronomy 6:25 the clause “IF we observe to do ALL these commandments.”

Ecclesiastes 7:20
20  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
King James Version

Job 4:17
17  Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?
King James Version

Job 15:14-16
14  What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
15  Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.
16  How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?
King James Version

Psalms 14:3
3  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
King James Version

Proverbs 20:9
9  Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
King James Version

Isaiah 64:6
6  But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
King James Version

Philippians 3:9
9 and be actually in union with Him, not having a supposed right standing with God which depends on my doing what the law commands, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the real right standing with God which originates from Him and rests on faith.
William’s New Testament

James 2:10
Jas 2:10  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 
King James Version

Jesus declared He is the only way to God and heaven for all people, not the Jews only:

John 14:6
Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 

Jesus promised:

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 John 5:23  That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 
John 5:24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
