This law business

After Matthew 5:27-32

OK, I get it, I think,

this business about

obedience to the law,

with the law being

both letter and spirit.

But what are you

saying here, what’s

the point? If I hear

you correctly, you’re

telling us that thew law

expresses the lawgiver’s

character, his mind, and

we are so far removed

that we can barely fathom

what’s here, much less 

actually obey and do it.

So, if all of that is true,

are we without hope?

Are we simply to muddle

along, live our lives,

and die? If we can’t do

this for ourselves, can

anyone do it for us?
