Does the Law Condemn or Guide Us?

Episode 599 Show Notes 

From the Show

Jesus did not abolish the law. He fulfilled it. He did not erase God’s law for the believer, but we have a new relationship to it. It is so easy for us to think that God’s commandments do not apply to us, but God does call us to live lives of holiness, lives of love for him and our neighbor.

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. Why did Jesus curse the fig tree?

2. Since Islam is an Abrahamic religion, does that mean that it is really a false religion?

3. Is the 3rd-use of the law legitimate? It seems that if people have a good sense of justification by faith alone that the 3rd use of the law is not necessary.

4. If Moses’s sister Miriam received leprosy from God in the Old Testament, does that mean God can punish people with sickness today?
