By Law or by Faith? Which way shall it be?One makes men slaves One sets men freeBy one men are given a yoke hard to bearBy one divine nature God's own life to shareBy one men are justified through what they doThe other all righteousness Is Christ Jesus in youOne came with glory that fades and won't lastThe other so gloriousthe former surpassedOne came to Jacob and descendents from himOne came with promise and hope to all menOne was a wall causing much enmityThe other a way to perfect unitySo by Law or By Faith? which way shall it be? I've made my choiceand hope you'll follow me.AM

Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. The law is changed, not done away with we are saved because he kept the law and gave us a new one to follow to be born again (after death)Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent (only by the Spirit), and be baptized every one of you(die) in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (eternal life). A new heart. Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. The wages of sin is law. Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.The soul that sins must die.Jas 2:22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? Jas 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Jas 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Rom 10:4 For Christ is the end (goal) of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. I'am not saying that we are under the law of Moses. But before the law of Moses. There where laws given by the Father. We should hunger and thirst to keep them, if not why should we seek the kingdom where we will fully keep them.
