The Law is not of Faith
My friend, pastor Jay Bennett, recently preached a sermon on the text "Gal. 3:11-12, "Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, ‘For the righteous shall live by faith.’ But the law is not of faith, rather ‘The one who does them shall live by them.’" Which, according to his own summary includes the themes and thesis: Themes: Law and Gospel, liberty of conscience, justification Thesis: Confusing the principles of Law and Gospel (Works and Faith) undermines the truth of the gospel.
