MISSING THE POINT ABOUT LAW AND GRACE
Gentile heathenish misconceptions especially in recent times, give careless interpretation of scriptural words (e.g. works, law and grace) thereby breeding confusion:
- between our personal good “WORKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS” which we do, and priestly ritual “WORKS OF THE LAW” which is done for us (Eph 2:8-10; Tit 3:5-8);
- between personal MORAL PRECEPTS in the commandments, concessions and counsels of the law (i.e. spirit of the law), and priestly MEDIATORIAL POWERS in the cleansing ceremonies of the law (i.e. works of the law);
- between shadowy, temporal and external cleansing of RITUAL LAW of SACRIFICES performed repeatedly by sinful Levites with ANIMAL BLOOD provided by sinners, and substantive, eternal and internal cleansing of REDEMPTIVE GRACE of SALVATION perfected once-for-all by sinless Christ with His PRECIOUS BLOOD provided by God (Heb 9:23-25; 10:8-14).
