What does the Bible mean that we are justified by faith without the deeds of the law ?


Romans 3:28 NKJV
[28] Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.


Hi Guest. The law is the standard of character. It is like a mirror that shows you the problem on your face but it cannot fix it. That is like trying to use fig leaves to cover your nakedness (Adam and Eve.) We are justified by faith. That does not mean that the law is abolished because without the law, there is no transgression for Sin is the transgression of God's law (1John 3:4)

Thank you for that perspective. So although the law serves a good purpose, it is not intended to be a means of justification.  Justification is an act grace that is received by faith in Jesus. Ahhh.
