#005: Why Christians Are Not Under The Law [Podcast]

Growing up I had no idea what to do with the law. I mean, as Christians we have been freed from the law and live under grace… but God gave it right? Surely we can’t just throw it away. It’s all throughout the scriptures!

So what do I as a believer do with the law?

In this podcast we are going to dive right into the depths of this topic and we will discover that while the law is good it is not for the believer.

Hope you enjoy the podcast!

  1. Hey Phil,

    I’m downloading this podcast right now. Can you point me towards a good resource on the Law of God/Christ as described in Romans 7:22/25 & 8:2.

    Thank you,

    Isom C

  2. Hey Phil, love the teaching on grace. I have a question that I know you’ve thought about and have a decent answer to.

    If faith is the only way to please God then it’s pretty important to have and exercise faith. How is faith not a “work” then? It’s something I have to “do” to please God, right? Thoughts?
