How many people have you actually heard say, "I will EARN my salvation with works"???? I'd bet an entire year's salary you've never heard anyone say that ONCE.
You said it right here
or keeping the letter of the law which says "thou shalt not kill". So, either get busy killing people or get busy changing your asinine interpretation. Maybe I can help you:
Have you not read
1Ti_1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
Rom_8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Rom 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Rom 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
So who are the righteouss
Rom_4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
Rom_4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Rom_4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
So, either get busy killing people or get busy changing your asinine interpretation. Maybe I can help you:
So did you get mad and wish to kill me in your thoughts, that is akin to murder in teh eyes of teh law, and if so have condemned yourself, such is the law.
Do you not understand the law has saved no man, Remeber David who loved teh law, did it save Him or Moses who brought the law to the people, did the law save Him, how about our saviour was well in Good til he became sin than the law Slew Him just like everyone else and it wasnt even His sin it was ours, such is the law,.
We have laws in this country even yours, many which I would not know, do we all go deliberatly go breaking them, do you?? Why not because we need no law to do Good, that is why the law was introduced to show the evil that they where evil yet it does not stop them from doing eveil.
Rom_7:11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.
Thats what teh law does,
So if you wish to kep it in your own strength fine, but do not lay that burden upon others,
Act_15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:
For it is not about what "you" can do but about what He, Jesus, has already done.
